Princess Eugenie's son is excited for World Oceans Day!

Queen Elizabeth's granddaughter, 31, shared a personal video of 4-month-old baby August Philip Hawke Brooksbank on her Instagram Story on Tuesday to celebrate the occasion. In the clip, royal fans can hear August for the first time, as he excitedly coos in his little rocker while playing with a stuffed animal shark.

August is clearly growing a full head of hair, which has a brownish-red color similar to his parents' hair.

"It's World Oceans Day today, a day to celebrate our magnificent oceans and all the creates in it," Eugenie captioned the post. "A day to raise awareness for something so integral to all our lives, and a day to snuggle with fluffy sharks."
