Princess Eugenie was among the thousands of fans showing their support for England during their Euro 2024 semi-final as she shared an adorable throwback clip of her son, August Brooksbank.

Posting on her personal Instagram account, the cute video showed baby August wearing a Three Lions onesie and cooing, as his doting mother stroked his tummy.

WATCH: Princess Eugenie shares throwback clip of baby August in England kit

Eugenie, 34, wrote in the caption: "Throwback to a baby Augie. Wishing @england the best of luck tonight #euros."

The clip is likely to have been taken during England's last Euro campaign in 2021, when they were defeated by Italy at the final.

But on Wednesday night, Gareth Southgate's squad beat The Netherlands 2-1 with Ollie Watkins scoring in the 90th minute. England will now face Spain in the final in Berlin on Sunday 14 July.

Eugenie's cousin, the Prince of Wales, did not travel to Dortmund for the semi-final amid work commitments, HELLO! understands.

Football fan Prince William, 42, was an animated spectator at England's quarter-final match against Switzerland in Dusseldorf last Saturday, which saw them secure a place in the semi-final after a 1-1 draw, extra time and a tense penalty shootout.

The future king, who supports West Midlands club, Aston Villa, has been President of the Football Association (FA) since 2006.

Euros 2024: get to know the Three Lions

Harry Kane, Jude Bellingham and Phil Foden in England kits

Star players 

England are the bookmakers' favourites to triumph in Germany, and with three star players like these, it's no surprise...

  • Harry Kane  – Captain and striker
  • Jude Bellingham  – Attacking midfielder/Forward
  • Phil Foden – Attacking midfielder/Forward

Highest earners

Football is renowned for astronomical player wages, and England boasts some of the games most well remunerated ballers...

  • Jude Bellingham is the highest earner of the Three Lions with a reported weekly salary of £343,718.58. 
  • Harry Kane earns a reported £343,656.43 per week. 
  • John Stones is the third highest earning player with a reported £250,000 weekly salary. 

Goal threat

With a team packed with goalscorers, it would be an abject failure should they fail to make the net bulge with regularity... 

  • Harry Kane is England's all-time top scorer with over 400 goals for club and country. 
  • Phil Foden has enjoyed his best-ever season for Manchester City, claiming 17 goals and eight assists.
  • Bukayo Saka has scored 11 goals for his country and has been named England men's player of the year for the past two seasons.

High-profile WAGs 

It's not just the action in the stands that enthralls at major tournaments, England's WAGs line-up also garners attention. Here are three of its most high-profile members...

  • Dani Dyer: Love Island winner has been in a relationship with West Ham star Jarred Bowen since 2021, and the pair welcomed twin girls in May 2023.
  • Iris Law: Jude's daughter (Law not Bellingham) is believed to be beau'd-up with Liverpool player Trent Alexander-Arnold. 
  • Laura Celia Valk: Dutch model boasting more than half a million Instagram followers is understood to be dating Jude Bellingham.

While Eugenie's husband, Jack Brooksbank, is reportedly a Chelsea fan, he and Eugenie were spotted in the stands at Newcastle United vs Tottenham Hotspur at St James' Park in Newcastle in October 2021.

The Princess obtained a 2:1 in English Literature and History of Art from Newcastle University in 2012.

She has been a director at Hauser & Wirth art gallery in London since 2017.

Family life

As well as son August, born in February 2021, Eugenie and Jack welcomed their second child, Ernest, in May 2023.

Eugenie often shares updates and anecdotes about her two little ones, including a series of cute snaps to mark Ernest's first birthday earlier this year.

The Princess, who is the second child of the Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York, has also opened up about motherhood and parenting challenges over the past three years.

"I think I've got magic children that take after me and Jack. They love sleeping," Eugenie told the Table Manners podcast. "Augie's up a bit early, but Ernie sleeps 'til 8 in the morning."

She quipped: "I think they heard me say when they were in my tummy, 'You will sleep because if I don't sleep, I'm a dragon.' Sleep's integral to me."

But she told Kate Thornton on White Wine Question Time last year: "There are other things that don't go well - feeding times are tearing my hair out type moments but sleep is not a problem at the moment. There's always sleep regression and things like that coming."
