Princess Eugenie shared a tribute to two close family members in honour of Father's Day on Sunday. The Princess took to Instagram, where she shared a couple of photos from her personal collection. The first one was from her childhood and showed her and her dad, Prince Andrew, sitting outside and drinking out of matching blue plastic cups.

Little Eugenie looked adorable in green shorts and a white T-shirt, with her hair styled in an adorable feathered mop! The second photo showed her father-in-law, George Brooksbank, lined up for a photo with the rest of his family, including Eugenie and her husband Jack.

George was hospitalised with COVID-19 after falling ill in mid-March and his condition was extremely serious. He was placed on a ventilator for five weeks at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London and underwent a tracheotomy before being transferred to a ward specialising in heart and lung conditions at the Royal Brompton Hospital.
