Princess Eugenie has shared a photo of her with her dad Prince Andrew to mark Father’s Day.

The tribute came shortly after a heartfelt message from the princess thanking the NHS staff who saved her father-in-law’s life.

The photo shows of Eugenie as a child sitting next to Andrew on a step as they sip from blue plastic cups.

The tiny royal is dressed in a T-shirt and green shorts, and the cup obscures most of her face.

Her father is casually dressed in a blue polo shirt and chinos, with his trainers just visible in the bottom of the picture.

Eugenie, 30, wrote: “Happy Father's Day to my father and father-in-law and to all fathers celebrating today and everyday...”

She also shared a second picture on the post, of her father-in-law George Brooksbank, from a family wedding.

In the picture, he is stood next to his wife, and Eugenie and Brooksbank’s son Jack can just be spotted with their backs almost to the camera.

Eugenie married Jack in Windsor in October 2018, and the couple appear to have been staying with Eugenie’s parents Andrew and Sarah during the lockdown.

The couple have had a difficult time of late as Jack’s father has had two hospital stays as he battled coronavirus.

But he has recovered and returned home about a month ago.

Prince Andrew is at the centre of a transatlantic legal row as prosecutors working on the Jeffrey Epstein case in the US want to question him over his friendship with the disgraced financier.

Andrew, 60, claims he has offered to help on multiple occasions, which the US authorities dispute.

Earlier this month it emerged he regretted an interview he did with BBC Newsnight that sought to address his friendship with the billionaire, because he was “unable to appropriately or sufficiently convey his sympathy for the victims of Epstein”.
