August Philip Hawke Brooksbank

ICYMI: Embed from Getty Images   Earlier today Princess Eugenie and her husband, Jack Brooksbank announced the names of their son.  He has been named August Philip Hawke. Eugenie, the younger daughter of the Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York, gave birth to her first child at the Portland Hospital on February 9.   Embed from Getty Images The names honor the baby's great-grandfather, Prince Philip, and two 5 five times grandparents:  Prince Albert (1819-1861), the consort of Queen Victoria, and the Reverend Edward Hawke Brooksbank (1789-1893). Prince Albert was the younger son of Ernst I, Prince of Saxe-Coburg-Saafeld and Princess Luise of Saxe-Gotha-Altenburg.   His grandmother, Auguste, Duchess of Saxe-Coburg-Saafeld, wrote in her diary on August 26: "a healthy little boy has been born.  I hurried here, and found mother and child as well as possible, and Ernest overjoyed." Augusta, a Countess of Reuss-Ebersdorf by birth, may have been named for her great-grandfather, Georg August, Count of Schönberg-Fürstenau. Heinrich is the only name for male members of the Reuss princely family. "Ernest wishes him to be given the old Saxon name of Albert." Augusta wrote in her diary.   His full name given at his baptism on August 29, 1819, was baptized Franz Albrecht August Carl Emmanuel.  Albert's older brother, Duke Ernst II's names also included August: Ernst August Karl Johann Leopold Alexander Eduard.  Ernst August, Elector of Hanover, father of George I August is the German version of Augustus.  George I was the son of Ernst August, Elector of Hanover.   George's younger brother, Friedrich August, who died in 1691 in battle, was known in the family as Gutschen. King George I's full name was George Augustus, although, in Hanover, where he was also the sovereign, he was styled as Georg II.    George II's seventh child was named William Augustus.  William was created Duke of Cumberland and is best known for defeating the Jacobite rebellion at the Battle of Culloden (1746.) Frederick, the Prince of Wales, eldest son of King George II, married Princess Auguste (Augusta) of Saxe-Gotha.   Their eldest child, Princess Augusta, married Carl, Duke of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel.    She and her husband were the parents of seven children, including a daughter, Auguste, and a son, August. Prince Frederick's second son was given the name Edward Augustus.  He was given the ducal titles of York and Albany. The Prince of Wales died in 1751, leaving his young son, George as the heir to George II.   George III succeeded in 1760.  A year later he married Duchess Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz.   Several of their fifteen children had the name Augustus or Augusta.   Their eldest son, the future George IV, was named George Augustus Frederick.   Augustus was also the middle names of their second and fourth sons, Frederick Augustus, Duke of York and Albany, and Edward Augustus, Duke of Kent and Strathearn.  The Duke of Kent was Queen Victoria's father. George's eldest daughter was baptized Charlotte Augusta Matilda.    Edward Augustus, Duke of Kent & Streatheard, father of Queen Victoria George III's second daughter was named Augusta Sophia. George looked back to his Hanover roots when he named his fifth son after his great-great-grandfather, Ernest Augustus, a double first name. Ernest Augustus, Duke of Cumberland and Teviotdale, succeeded his brother William IV, as King of Hanover. His only child, King Georg V lost his kingdom after siding with Austria in the Austro-Prussian War.  Prussia's revenge was to annex Hanover into the Kingdom of Prussia.   Georg V died in 1878.  His only son and heir Prince Ernst August married Princess Thyra of Denmark.  Prince Ernst August chose to be styled as Duke of Cumberland and Teviotdale. Ernst August and Thyra were the parents of three sons and three daughters.  The youngest of the three sons was named Ernst August, who became heir after the premature deaths of his two older brothers.   This Ernst August, who became the Duke of Brunswick-Lüneburg, married Kaiser Wilhelm II's daughter, Victoria Luise. Their eldest son was named Ernst August, whose eldest legitimate son was named Ernst August as well.  This latter Prince Ernst August is separated from his second wife, Princess Caroline of Monaco.  He has two sons by his first wife, Chantal Hochuli. They named their elder son Ernst August,  continuing the tradition for four generations.  This tradition came to an end when the Hereditary Prince Ernst August and his wife, Ekaterina, named their first son, Welf August.  George III's sixth son was Prince Augustus Frederick, Duke of Sussex.  He married twice in contravention of the Royal Marriages Act.  His first wife was Lady Augusta Murray, daughter of the 4th Earl of Dunmore.  They had two children, Augusta and Augustus. George IV and his wife, Princess Caroline of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel (whose mother was George III's older sister, Princess Augusta) had one daughter,  Princess Charlotte Augusta of Wales. Several of George III's grandchildren, including the aforementioned Augusta and Augustus d'Este, had the name Augusta as a first or a middle name: George Augustus Frederick Fitzclarence, 1st Earl of Munster, Lady Augusta Gordon, Lord Augustus Fitzclarence,  Princess Charlotte Augusta Louisa of Clarence. Prince Adolphus, Duke of Cambridge, the seventh son of King George III, married Princess Augusta of Hesse-Cassel.  They had three children.  Their second child and eldest daughter's first name was Augusta.  The British royal family are descendants of the third child and second daughter, Princess Mary Adelaide. Mary Adelaide and her husband, Franz, Duke of Teck had four children. Their only daughter was named Victoria Mary Augusta Louise Olga Pauline Claudine Agnes and the youngest child Alexander Augustus Frederick William Alfred George.   The name Augusta was used only once by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.  Their third daughter was named Helena Augusta Victoria.  Princess Eugenie's middle names are Helena and Victoria.    Embed from Getty Images  Princess Eugenie has met  Hereditary Prince Ernst August of Hanover on several occasions.  She and her older sister, Princess Beatrice, represented the Queen at the 2013 reopening of Schloss Herrenhausen in Hanover.   Prince Ernst August and his wife, Ekaterina, were guests at Princess Eugenie's wedding Eugenie and Beatrice attended the wedding of Prince Christian of Hanover to Alessandra de Osma in March 2018.    Embed from Getty Images Although August honors Prince Albert (as the 5x grandparent), it is a name that appears often in Eugenie's maternal line through Queen Victoria (the Hanovers) and Albert (through his paternal grandmother's family).

A Right Royal Riddle: Who Am I?

A Gotha Quiz: Who Am I? By Darren Shelton for the European Royal History Journal. The man history named as my father was extremely flamboyant, a trait which eventually cost him dearly.  Many at the time felt that my true father was the man who taught my 'official' parents the art of lovemaking. My arrival after many years of what appeared a barren marriage helped to confirm this. I eventually succeeded as king at a young age. Time was to prove that ruling was not my forte. My wife came from a family that was successful in establishing her siblings on other thrones.  My son was to eventually marry a woman from the same house as his mother. Through my daughter-in-law, my descendants had imperial connections, albeit due to adoption. Due to my ineptness, my son was forced to live a life of much reduced circumstances. As can be expected, I died a broken man. Who am I? The answer will be posted tomorrow. +++++++

The Kensington Church bells "struck up a merry peal" shortly before the ceremony took place and "continued to ring at intervals during the afternoon and evening." Members of the Royal Family began to arrive at the palace after 2 p.m. and were received in the Grand Hall by Sir John Conroy, the Duchess' Principal Equerry, and Private Secretary, who escorted them to the north vestibule.  Nearly every member of the royal family in England attended the wedding including the Duke and Duchess of Clarence, the Duke of Sussex, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, Princess Sophia, Princess Sophia Matilda, and Prince Leopold.  Princess Augusta, who is in Brighton, was unable to attend. Shortly after 3 p.m, the royal family proceeded to the Grand Saloon adjoining the Vestibule where a temporary altar had been set up.   Dr. Kuper, the chaplain of the Royal German Chapel, united the young couple in marriage according to the rites of the Lutheran Church. Princess Feodora's older brother, Carl, Prince of Leiningen also attended the wedding along with the Duchess of Kent's staff. The bride and her "Royal sister the Princess Victoria," wore British-made dresses made from "Buckinghamshire thread lace."  Victoria and Princess Amelie of  Carolath-Beuthen were Feodora's bridesmaids.   Amelie, 5, is the daughter of Heinrich, Prince of  Carolath-Beuthen. The Prince is a first cousin to the Duchess of Clarence.  His mother, Princess Amalie, was the younger sister of Adelaide's father, Georg, the Duke of Saxe-Meiningen. The Duchess of Clarence and the Prince of Hohenlohe-Langenburg are also first cousins.   Although it was initially reported that the King would give the bride away, it was his brother, the "florid fatherly Uncle William of Clarence," who took the bride's arm and  The Duchess of Kent hosted a "splendid early dinner" in honor of the newlyweds.  The royal guests left for their respective residences at 6 p.m. Princess Feodora, 20, and her 38-year-old husband, Prince Ernst left the King's Palace at 8 p.m, in a new carriage for Prince Leopold's home, Claremont, where they will spend their honeymoon.   The King gave Feodora a "superb present in diamonds," and other members of the royal family also presented her with jewelry.  The new Princess of Hohenlohe-Langenburg has been living in England with her mother and younger half-sister for the past nine years.  She and her brother, Carl, are the Duchess of Kent's children from her first marriage to the late Prince of Leiningen.   In  1818,  the former Princess Victoire of Saxe-Coburg and Saafeld, a sister of Prince Leopold, widower of the late Princess Charlotte, married the Duke of Kent.    The Duke, the fourth son of the late King George III, died in January 1820 eight months after the birth of his daughter, Princess Alexandrina Victoria. Four days before the wedding, the Duchess gave a "grand assembly at her residence to a "numerous assemblage of relatives and friends. The celebration began at nine p.m.  The palace's Great Hall was "brilliantly illuminated."   The band of the 3rd Regiment of Foot Guards was stationed "in the orange shrubbery, surrounded by a variety of other trees, plants, and flowers." The band played different pieces of music throughout the evening and struck up God Save the King for the arrival of each member of the Royal Family.  The Duke and Duchess of Clarence, Princess Sophia, Prince Leopold, Princess Sophia Matilda,  the Prince of Hohenlohe-Langenburg, Prince and Princess Lieven, Prince and Princess Esterhazy, Prince and Princess Polignac, Foreign Ambassadors, the Lord Chancellor, members of the Cabinet, the Speaker of the House, the Bishop of London as well as members of the peerage, including eleven Dukes. Princess Feodora's eight-year-old half-sister, Princess Alexandrina Victoria, was too young to attend the ball.

a new QVD in a few months

ICYMI:   @PHOTO BY MISAN HARRIMAN, COPYRIGHT OWNED BY THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF SUSSEX © 2021 TRH The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced earlier today that the Duchess is expecting a second child.  "We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child," stated their spokesman. The due date was not included in the announcement. This will be the second child for the Duke and Duchess.  Their first child, Archie Harrison, was born on May 6, 2019, at the Portland Hospital in London.  Last July, the Duchess suffered a miscarriage, which she wrote about for the New York Times in November. The new baby will be 8th in line to the British throne.  Several news outlets have been reporting that the late Diana, Princess of Wales' second pregnancy (Harry) was announced on February 14, 1984.  This is incorrect.  Buckingham Palace announced on February 13, 1984, that the Princess of Wales was expecting a second child.  The BBC broadcast the news at noon.  British newspapers put the pregnancy on their front page on February 14.  The Associated Press' wire story would have followed the BBC's announcement within a few minutes. (I was a news librarian with the AP in 1984).   A noon announcement in the United Kingdom meant that Americans living on the East Coast would have heard the news soon after 8 a.m., if they were watching one of network morning news programs or CNN, which began broadcasting in June 1980. Notice the February 13th dateline for the New York Times and the Washington Post. People Magazine (February 27, 1984) refers to the "Valentine's eve announcement."   I also have the Daily Telegraph's article (February 14, 1984) titled "September Baby for Princess."   The lead paragraph states: "After months of speculation, the Prince and Princess of Wales announced YESTERDAY that they are expecting their second child late in September." This will be the second of three births in the royal family this year.   Princess Eugenie, who is married to Jack Brooksbank, gave birth to a son on February 9.   Zara Tindall, the daughter of Princess Anne, is due to give birth to her third child within the next few months. Eugenie, Harry, and Zara are first cousins, which makes their children second cousins.   Baby Sussex will be Queen Elizabeth II's tenth great-grandchild unless Baby Tindall arrives first.
