Watch: Princess Eugenie marks husband's birthday with sweet photos

Princess Eugenie has shared new pictures of her son August as she took him with her on a day trip to London.

Eugenie, 31, was pictured carrying August in her arms as she introduced him to Assam August, one of more than 100 elephant statues in Green Park, near to Buckingham Palace.

August was dressed in blue dungarees and his head was protected from the sun with a matching blue hat.

Proud mum Eugenie posted three pictures on her Instagram page, writing: "A giant herd of 100+ elephants has arrived in Green Park to share their @coexistence.story with London this summer. As a Patron of @elephantfamily and an honorary Matriarch it’s my pleasure to share this journey with you.

"Within The Tea Timers herd is a wonderful baby elephant called Assam August - and it was such a pleasure to take my August to meet him."

The final photo showed Eugenie crouched down while holding August, with him looking at the baby elephant statue.

The collection of elephants has appeared on other royal Instagram pages, as the project was supported by Clarence House, which covers the work of Charles and Camilla.

Sharing a video a week ago, Clarence House explained: "Created in memory of @ElephantFamily Co-Founder and The Duchess’s late brother Mark Shand, the @coexistence.story art exhibition marks a unique time when a reduction in human activity is having a positive effect on wildlife around the world.

"Over 100 life-sized lantana elephants have migrated all the way from India to Green Park, St James’s Park and Berkeley Square."

Prince Charles and Camilla are joint presidents of the Elephant Family.

The sculptures have been on The Mall and in Chelsea before they went to St James Park and Green Park. 

The charity says the sculptures aim to "guide us on how to best share space with animals on our crowded planet". 

It added: "As the herd make their way around the globe, they will tell the story of our over-populated planet, the effect of human encroachment on wild spaces and the inspiring ways we can coexist with all the other living beings that make our world magical – from tigers and orangutans to nightingales and elephants."

While Eugenie does not carry out official royal engagements, she is a patron of many charities, and runs the Anti Slavery Collective.

She and her husband Jack Brooksbank welcomed baby August in February, their first son.

They are believed to be living in Frogmore Cottage at the moment, the Windsor home given to Eugenie's cousin Prince Harry when he married Meghan Markle.

Eugenie and Brooksbank were pictured out together on a child free night on 22 June, when they joined a private book launch held by Poppy Jamie for her book Happy Not Perfect, at Isabel in London.

Shand was a travel writer who worked for the BBC, and was one of the founders of Elephant Family. He died in 2014, after a serious fall.
