The lovely post comes two days after Eugenie celebrated her parents Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson's wedding anniversary. The 29-year-old shared two throwback pictures from their wedding day, which took place on 23 July 1986. "Who else has ever forgotten to congratulate their parents on their wedding anniversary," she said in the caption. Although the post comes a day late, Eugenie explained: "I'm a day late but I wanted to celebrate my parents getting married 33 years ago... Thank you for always being the best of friends and bringing us up together."

Despite their divorce in 1996, the former couple have remained great friends, and even live together in the Royal Lodge in Windsor. This year, they have attended more public events together, most recently to Royal Ascot and the royal wedding of Lady Gabriella Windsor and Thomas Kingston.
