Princess Eugenie, 31, was able to introduce her baby August Philip Hawke to her grandfather, Prince Philip, by whom she was called. Baby August was born in February just weeks before the Duke of Edinburgh died on April 9th.
Speaking in the BBC documentary Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers, which aired Wednesday night, Eugenie said, “We named August, August Philip because the grandfather had been such a great and inspiring character in my life.
“I took little August to meet him and told him we had given him his name and it was such a beautiful moment.
“We were very lucky to do it.”
During the documentary, Eugenie also talked about how she shared a passion for art with the late duke who was known for appreciating watercolor painting.
Philip died at Windsor Castle a few months before celebrating his 100th birthday on 10 June.
Eugenie was among the royalty including Prince William, Prince Harry, Princess Anne and Prince Charles to pay their respects to the Duke of Edinburgh on the special program.
