Princess Eugenie gave birth to her first child, August Philip Hawke, on February 9, but strict COVID-19 rules have meant the Queen has been unable to meet her ninth great-grandchild. The seven-week wait to see the newest member of the Royal Family could soon end, after lockdown restrictions were eased in England on Monday.

Groups of six people or two households can now meet outdoors or in a private garden.

Royal commentator Victoria Arbiter speculated a first meeting between the Queen and baby August could be on the cards at Windsor Castle.

In a post on Twitter she wrote: “With the ‘rule of 6’ now in force for people meeting outdoors here’s hoping she’s able to see baby August for the first time in the grounds of Windsor Castle.”

The latest government guidelines encourage lockdown-weary Britons to meet their family safely in outdoor settings.

The draconian “stay at home” message has also been dropped, but people are encouraged to limit their travel.

The guidance says: “From March 29, when most schools start to break up for the Easter holidays, outdoor gatherings (including in private gardens) of either six people (the Rule of six) or two households will also be allowed, making it easier for friends and families to meet outside.”

It adds: “The ‘stay at home’ rule will end on March 29 but many restrictions will remain in place.

“People should continue to work from home where they can and minimise the number of journeys they make where possible, avoiding travel at the busiest times and routes.”

Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s first child together was born at Portland Hospital.

The London clinic is also where Eugenie and her sister Princess Beatrice were born.

August is also the first grandson of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.

Eugenie and Jack recently shared an adorable photo of their baby on Mothering Sunday.

Eugenie posted a photo on her Instagram of little August laying on a blanket in their garden, surrounded by stunning flowers.

A second photo was added of Eugenie as a new born wrapped in blanket, while being held by her mother Fergie in 1990.

She wrote: “I’m so excited to be August’s mum and as you can see I’m enjoying my first Mother’s Day.

“I’m also celebrating my beautiful Mumma with this picture of us from March 1990.

“You’ve taught me so much. Happy Mother’s Day to all.”
