Princess Eugenie and her husband, Jack Brooksbank, have been parents for over four months now, after welcoming their baby son August Philip Hawke Brooksbank to the world on 9 February.

Since August was born right in the thick of lockdown, the family had to stay holed up in their (very nice, too) Windsor home, Frogmore Cottage, which has been loaned to them by owners Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. But now restrictions have largely eased, Eugenie and Jack could make the most of grandparent babysitting services (or a nanny - they are royals) and enjoy their first post-baby night out at a public event.

The couple were pictured all smiles at a book launch for Princess Eugenie's friend Poppy Jamie's first book, Happy Not Perfect. The event took place at restaurant Isabel in London's Mayfair, and the new parents were joined by the likes of Suki Waterhouse, Georgia Toffolo and Jack Guinness - as well as Poppy herself, of course.

The big beaming grins on Eugenie and Jack's faces indicated that, not only were they probably thoroughly delighted at being able to go out and socialise with friends finally, but perhaps also that they weren't missing the feed/burp/play/nap routine that every small baby demands.

That's not to say the pair aren't loving parenthood, of course. From the sweet photos the princess has shared on Instagram, it seems like she's truly loving the addition of August into their family, and life as a mum in general. Just this weekend, in aid of Father's Day, Eugenie posted four never-before-seen photos of baby August on Instagram, showing off his adorable little button nose.

Princess Eugenie addressed the post to her husband, writing: "Happy Father's Day to you my love.. you are the ultimate father to our boy!!"

The pictures include a glimpse of little August out on various walks with his parents, and one where the four-month-old can be seen nuzzled up to his dad's shoulder. The last in the series reflects just how tiring parenthood can be, as a conked-out Jack Brooksbank is seen wearing a hoodie as he sleeps on the sofa, with a tiny baby August napping on top of him. Bless 💔.

We can only imagine how tired Eugenie and Jack were yesterday after the night feeds following their evening out on Tuesday... Oh, the life of parents.
