Princess Eugenie shared a touching and reflective Instagram post on New Years day, spending the time — like many of us — looking back on what 2021 held for us.

Having become a mother in February, Princess Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank welcomed baby August just seven months before becoming an aunt and uncle in September when elder sister Princess Beatrice also welcomed her first child.

Baby Sienna was the Queen’s twelfth great-grandchild, with four babies being born in 2021 alone. Zara and Mike Tindall's first son Lucas Philip's arrival and Prince Harry and Megan welcoming baby Lilibet Diana being the other two.

But it was also the year Eugenie lost her beloved Grandpa Prince Philip, and Jack lost his father George Brooksbank just days before baby August's joint Christening with Lucas in November. Both babies share the middle name Philip after the late Duke of Edinburgh.

Sharing a mix of new and old photos, we can see Eugenie and Jack sharing happier moments together and with baby August. They also shared a beautiful photo of the Queen and Prince Philip, a lovely smiling shot of Jack with his father, and a sweet foot print from baby Sienna.

The Princess wrote; "Happy New Year to all.. Goodbye 2021. A year that blessed us with our boy and saw our family grow with new additions but also a year that took some of our biggest and brightest lights. Forever in our hearts ♥️"

Speaking at the time of Philip's passing, Eugenie shared some of her touching memories of the Duke; "I remember learning how to cook, how to paint, what to read. I remember laughing at your jokes and asking about your spectacular life and service in the navy. ⁣I remember incinerating the sausages and you swooping in to save the day.⁣
I remember your hands and your laugh and your favourite beer. "

Adding how he would be remembered; ⁣ "I will remember you in your children, your grandchildren and great grandchildren."

In a year of such growth and loss for the family, those words couldn't mean more.⁣
