Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank have welcomed a baby boy!

Weighing 3.6kg, the newest member of the royal family was born on Tuesday morning and will be Queen Elizabeth's 9th great-grandchild.

With Princess Eugenie 11th in the line of succession, her baby boy will be 12th, with Prince Edward and those below him all moving down a notch, though it is unlikely the little royal will have a title.

According to People, betting sites Betfair and Ladbrokes have royal watchers saying Eugenie will opt to name her little one Arthur, which is already the middle name of Prince Louis, Prince William and Prince Charles.

With 6/1 odds on Ladbrokes, James is a close second, with Frederick, Edward, Albert, Hugo and Alfred in the running as well.
