Princess Eugenie is sharing details about the first time her son, August, met her grandpa, Prince Philip.
The 31-year-old mom sat down for a rare interview in the all-new BBC documentary, titled Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers. In the film, Princess Eugenie revealed that she’s grateful Philip had the opportunity to meet August, especially since the baby is named after him.
The royal held back tears as she said, “We named August, August Philip, because grandpa has been such a huge, inspiring character in my life.”
Princess Eugenie confirmed that August met Prince Philip shortly before he passed away at age 99. “I brought little August to come and meet him,” Princess Eugenie added. “I told him that we’d named him after him. It was such a lovely moment. We were very lucky to do that.”
