The Queen Mother, who died in 2002 at the age of 101, met nine of her 12 great-grandchildren. But the monarch, 94, is likely to break the record later this year.

The Queen became a great-grandmother for the ninth time when Princess Eugenie gave birth to her son earlier this month.

And later in 2021, the monarch will see the arrival of her 10th and 11th great-grandchildren.

Zara and Mike Tindall are expecting their third child.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry – who are living in America after quitting royal duties – also have a brother or sister on the way for Archie.

The Queen will break the Queen Mother’s record when she has met two of the three babies.

Eugenie gave birth to her tot, who is 11th in line to the throne, at the private Portland Hospital in central London on February 9.

She and Jack today announced the name they have chosen as they shared pictures of their adorable baby.

The new parents are glowing in the sweet family snaps.

Eugenie posted on Instagram: “We wanted to introduce you to August Philip Hawke Brooksbank.

“Thank you for so many wonderful messages.

“Our hearts are full of love for this little human, words can’t express.

“We are excited to be able to share these photos with you.”

She added that the images were taken by their “wonderful” midwife.

And Eugenie thanked essential workers “including our midwife who came to discharge our boy”.

In a further post on her Instagram stories, the royal revealed that the child had been named after his great-great-great-great-great-grandfather Prince Albert, who had Augustus as a middle name.

Albert was Queen Victoria’s consort.

The choice of Philip pays tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh, who is currently at King Edward VII’s hospital after being admitted on Tuesday night as a precautionary measure after feeling unwell.

It is understood Hawke is a Brooksbank family name.
