Restore the iPhone 8+ from the iPhone 6S backup. See the "Here’s what iCloud Backup includes" section in:


What does iCloud back up? - Apple Support


which says iMessage, text (SMS), and MMS messages are included.


Restore your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch from a backup - Apple Support


There is also a new "Quick Start" option with iOS 11 that I am not familiar with:


Transfer content from your previous iOS device to your new iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch - Apple Support
