The Princess of Wales has a new nephew who was born in Basingstoke hospital. 

Kate Middleton's younger brother James, 36, and his wife Alizee Thevenet welcomed their son a few weeks ago.

In an adorable Instagram post, James revealed his little boy, Inigo, was born a few weeks ago at the Aldermaston Road hospital. 

The new father praised the NHS for looking after both Alizee and his baby at Basingstoke hospital, while sharing a photo of Inigo's tiny hand 'holding' a badge containing an emblem of his late beloved dog Ella, and another photo of the tiny baby in his cot while James's other dogs watched over him.

Although he did not reveal Inigo's exact birthday, he said the little one has been in his life for 'just a few weeks'.

In a message on Instagram, James said: "He has been in our lives for just a few weeks but they have been the most special of my life getting to know our beautiful baby boy.

"No matter how prepared I thought I was…I was not prepared for the overwhelming emotion of meeting Inigo for the first time and the love for my darling Alizée as we became three.

"We have settled into our new life as parents and I’ve told him all about Ella and that if it wasn’t for her he wouldn’t be here today and that we miss her greatly.

"The dogs have been fantastic at welcoming their little brother into the pack (although Inka needs to know the teddybears are not all for her…) 

"We would like to thank the wonderful team at Basingstoke hospital, from the very first scan to walking out the front door for the first time as three, we couldn’t have felt more supported and looked after throughout so thank you NHS."

Chief executive for Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Alex Whitfield, said: “Our maternity staff were extremely proud to have been mentioned by the Middleton family in the announcement of the birth of their baby, Inigo.

“We wish Alizee, James and Inigo all the very best as they begin their wonderful journey together."
