How do we read this ‘August 26’, August the 26th or August 26th? Thanks

You can say either. British English tends to use 'the' : "August the 26th" or "the 26th of August". In fact, in common with most countries, BrE tends to write the day before the month: 26 August = the 26th of August. American English writes the month first, and does not usually insert "the". The typical AmE way of saying this would be "August 26th". Any of the above three conventions would be clear and correct : take your pick.

It is read as August 26th. "August Twenty Sixth"

It’s up to you really, but from my perspective it’s “August 26th”, or “the 26th of August” (in my head).
