Princess Eugenie breaks royal tradition as she shares new photo of son August

Princess Eugenie has broken royal tradition by sharing a snap of her baby son wearing a monster outfit on Halloween.

Eugenie shared the picture on Instagram of August playing with a stuffed toy minion while wearing the cute blue monster costume.

In the accompanying comment for her 1.5 million followers on Sunday, the princess adds: "Wonder what they are talking about.."

Royal fans were quick to respond to the post with supportive comments, with many of them saying how adorable August looked in his tiny outfit, reports the Express.

"Happy Halloween baby August," wrote Insta user jillianbontuyan2, while thomas_pattie said: "Thanks for sharing" and chefdrogalski added: "Omg super cute! Love from Canada."

On her Instagram story, the royal shared another photo of her son crawling around on the carpet with his costume.

The story was captioned with: "At least my little Halloween monster is scary."

Her brother-in-law edomapellimozzi commented with a laughing emoji and a love heart.

The social media posts mark a break with royal tradition, and it’s not thought that similar Halloween snaps of other royal babies have been shared before.

Members of the Royal Family traditionally release the occasional official portrait of their children rather than posting informal shots on social media.

This year Princess Eugenie and her older sister Princess Beatrice both became mothers for the first time.

August Philip Hawke Brooksbank was born on February 9 to Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank, while Beatrice's daughter, Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi, was born on September 18.

Beatrice herself is no stranger to dressing up for Halloween, having donned a unicorn outfit, a cat mask and a pirate outfit for previous October 31 celebrations.

It’s thought that Princess Eugenie could bring up her child using more modern parenting techniques than traditional royal methods, the Express has reported.

Parenting expert and blogger Sophie Pickles said: "Eugenie's traditional royal upbringing is bound to have an impact upon the way in which she chooses to parent and she will value and encourage good manners, academic success and determination.

"[But] just as Eugenie has forged her own path in life, I am sure that she will also want to break away from some of the more old fashioned royal parenting techniques and traditions."
