Our social media was filled with throwback photos on Father's Day, the royal family included.

Princess Eugenie posted a "Happy Father's Day!" tribute to her father, Prince Andrew, and her father-in-law, George Brooksbank, who eventually overcame coronavirus after a very serious battle with the infection that lasted for five weeks beginning in mid-March.

In the first photo, a young Princess Eugenie sits on some stone steps next to her father Prince Andrew as they both drink out of sippy cups...and we can't get over how much Eugenie resembles older sis Beatrice at the same age. Wearing an adorable floral graphic tee and green shorts, her bright blonde mop is the signature York kid staple, it seems.

In the second photo, Princess Eugenie smiles for the camera with her husband Jack Brooksbank and his parents, George and Nicola Brooksbank. The Princess captioned the post, "Happy Father's Day to my father and father-in-law and to all fathers celebrating today and everyday...Xx" followed by a kiss emoji.

George contracted the coronavirus in March and was placed on a ventilator for five weeks at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London. He underwent a tracheotomy before being transferred to a ward specializing in heart and lung conditions at the Royal Brompton Hospital. He was recently released. 

On Saturday, Eugenie posted a video tribute to her Instagram to thank "all the teams who saved my father in law, George's life during his stays at St Mary’s, Chelsea and Royal Brompton Hospital after he contracted the virus.⁣"

"I can't begin to express the thanks I have to you all for bringing him back to our family, my husband Jack, his brother Tom and his beloved wife Nicola. We are forever grateful," Eugenie wrote in the caption.

Sounds like it was a very special (and emotional) Father's Day for Princess Eugenie and Jack.
