Indeed, that would make the most sense to me.

Come on, Mr and Mrs Brooksbank, announce the name already - we're eager to know

Sadly not. Unless they're single adults who've formed a "support bubble" with another household. Seeing as Andrew and Sarah live in the same house, neither of them will class as a single adult, and the Brooksbank parents are together so they won't either. So no visitors allowed.

That's indeed sad. I'm afraid they are one of many who aren't able to share this experience as closely with their family members as they would have done under normal circumstances.

My sister gave birth in May and at that time visitors weren't allowed or at least very much discouraged; so they had '(k)raamvisites' by my brother and his family - with the visitors remaining on the other side of the window.

(Word play: normally visiting a newborn baby is called a 'kraamvisite'; and the Dutch word for window is 'raam', so it's a maternity/window visit)

I've seen reports that Eugenie & Jack are back at Frogmore Cottage with their newborn son. Of course, there's no confirmation, so they could be at Royal Lodge.

There have been articles discussing how scoliosis can impact pregnancy and eventual delivery. It affects each mother differently, but epidurals are difficult. Perhaps a Caesarean was performed which requires more time to recover/ heal.

Good luck to the new parents! I had thought they might make a formal announcement at St. George's Hall at Windsor Castle, similar to the Sussexes. But with the current lockdown, that scenario is doubtful. Maybe we'll at least get a name announcement with a photo on Instagram.

When the christening happens, it will likely take place privately at the same church as Beatrice's wedding, near Royal Lodge.

I doubt they will not release the name.

They could have gone the private route like Zara and Peter with their kids. And simply had the pregnancy confirmed by the palace, and the birth. But instead they made a public announcement through instagram that they were expecting. And have chosen to share a photo of the baby already. It would be bizarre if they suddenly stopped sharing now and didnt at least provide a name.

They could shock us, but I am expecting a name once they have settled in.

Yes, it's very sad. It's not like you can ever get the precious early months of a baby's life back.

I doubt that they'll have the christening until lockdown restrictions have been eased. Places of worship are allowed to open, but a lot have chosen to close and hold services online instead, and only general communal worship is allowed, so you can't have a private christening ceremony as you would usually.

I would think they'll announce the name on their own social media pages.

Whilst the Tindalls didn't provide pictures, Mike has been less private about announcing his children on social media than Peter. He announced Mia's name on twitter IIRC and baby number 3 on his rugby podcast - whilst telling everyone that he was hoping for a boy A spokesman announced Lena's name, along with pronunciation. They've occasionally popped up on his podcast (inadvertently) and he talks about them in interviews. I think they handle the interest and privacy along with general life anecdotes with having an active SM presence quite well.

I do agree it is highly likely that Eugenie and Jack will share the baby's name and probably a photo in the next week or so since they've already put his tiny hand up, along with the informal announcement. Not to mention Eugenie sharing never before seen old family photos on there occasionally.

Jack and Princess Eugenie could give just the first name of Master Brooksbank.

Showing my age here but that name reminds me of Master Cylinder from the 60s Felix the Cat cartoons.

I don't think Eugenie and Jack would saddle their kid with some outrageous name. Maybe something a little out of the ordinary but not something that'd give the kid's classmates a field day with the name.

Probably within the week, there'll be another photo, or at the least an announcement of the baby's name on Eugenie's Instagram. I'm happy for them. This is a special time for new parents.

They just got the baby home. Likely taking a few days to settle in and enjoy him before sharing more. I am sure we will know soon.

Well before my time, the original airing, but I did know what you were talking about :)

They will have to register the baby by the 42 day mark after birth. They do not need to have decided on a name at that point - The Queen and Philip hadn't with Edward and Philip was even fined for not registering Edward on time.

We didn't see baby pictures of Peter's or Zara's children and I suspect Eugenie might be the same - no pictures or details about the christening etc.

Peter and Zara also didn't have a public social media. And didnt share private photos and posts with the public at the time their kids were born either.

We have seen since Zara and Mike have a more public persona, with Mike's podcast, that we have seen more of their daughters.

Eugenie has shown to be more open to sharing some with the public. Like the announcement and the photo we already have. More then a simple tweet from Mike what Mia's name was, as confirmation.
