Princess Eugenie said goodbye to her beloved grandfather the Duke of Edinburgh on Saturday 17 April. The 31-year-old - who recently gave birth to her son August - looked beautiful as she headed into St George's Chapel for the service, which took place at 3pm.

The daughter of Prince Andrew wore a black dress and coat and an elegant hairband with a net detail, like a number of other royal women at the service. She styled her chestnut brown hair into a lightly curled style and left her makeup simple.

Eugenie had a special relationship with her grandfather. She said of him in the 2016 ITV documentary, Our Queen At Ninety: "I think grandpa is incredible. He really is strong and consistent. He's been there for all the years and I think he's the rock for all of us."

Coincidently, the royal mum paid the ultimate tribute to Philip just weeks before his death by giving her son August his middle name in February. Zara Tindall - who gave birth in March did the same - naming her first son Lucas Philip.

Eugneie's older sister Beatrice also shared a wonderful bond with the Duke. In the same 2016 documentary, the redhead royal became emotional as she opened up about her grandfather. She said: "My fabulous grandfather. When I talk about my grandfather, I really get quite emotional." She added: "Because he is the most unique person and I'm very lucky there have been so many times where I have been able to share magical moments with my grandfather."
