UK: Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank have become parents again

Princess Eugenie of York announced on her Instagram account today, 5 June 2023, that she gave birth to her and her husband Jack Brooksbank's second son on 30 May 2023:

Jack and I wanted to share the news that we had our little boy, Ernest George Ronnie Brooksbank on 30th May 2023 at 8.49 weighing 7.1lbs.

He is named after his great great great Grandfather George, his Grandpa George and my Grandpa Ronald.

Augie is loving being a big brother already.

The couple's first son, August, was born on 9 February 2021. The (almost) newborn baby boy, who is 13th in line of succession to the British throne, has, if I understand it correctly, been named Ernest after his great-great-great-grandfather King George V (1865–1936), whose full name was George Frederick Ernest Albert, George after his grandfather George Brooksbank (1949–2021), father of Jack, and Ronnie after his great-grandfather Ronald Ferguson (1931–2003), father of Sarah, Duchess of York. 

The announcement doesn't say anything about where the baby boy was born, but I would guess that Portland Hospital in London, where August was born, is the most likely place of birth.
