In a beautiful new addition to this year’s flurry of royal Father’s Day posts was Princess Eugenie’s husband Jack and son August.

The Princess, who welcomed her baby son in February this year, shared a heartwarming series of images of Jack and their son in celebration of the new dad’s love for his family.

“Happy Father’s Day to you my love,” Eugenie wrote.

“You are the ultimate father to our boy!!”

Eugenie’s fans were over the moon with the insight into the new parents’ adventures with their newborn.

“Oh, these pictures are just adorable, Eugenie,” one follower wrote adding: “The last one is the essence of peace – so sweet! Thanks for sharing these photographs with us, & hope Jack enjoyed a wonderful first Father’s Day.”

Another fan pointed out a cute comparison: “I hope this doesn’t sound silly, but I can see our Queen in August.”

“Happy first Father’s Day to Jack, I hope he enjoyed his day and thank you Your Royal Highness for sharing these special images,” a follower added.

The Cambridge family also celebrated dad-of-three Prince William, who celebrated Father’s Day with his children at their country home, Anmer Hall.

In new images, the Prince was seen at the annual Sandringham half marathon with his two eldest children, Prince George, seven and Princess Charlotte, five.

The family also shared a cute graphic to Instagram featuring an unseen picture of Wills and his three kids snapped on the day of Trooping The Colour in 2019.
