The Royal Family Pays Tribute to Prince Philip on Father’s Day with Gorgeous Photos

The British royals are celebrating all of the fathers in their family, even those that are no longer with us.

In honor of Father’s Day this weekend, Queen Elizabeth shared a sweet tribute to her dad, King George VI, and her late husband, Prince Philip. Her Majesty shared a black-and-white image on Instagram featuring a young Prince Charles riding an animal statue while his parents and grandfather smile and observe.

“To all dads everywhere, we wish you a very special Father’s Day,” she captioned the post. “To mark #FathersDay we are sharing this photograph of The Queen with her father, King George VI, and Prince Philip watching a young Prince Charles sitting on a statue at Balmoral in 1951.”

The 95-year-old monarch isn’t the only one remembering Prince Philip on the holiday. In fact, Kate Middleton and Prince William included the Duke of Edinburgh in their own Father’s Day message on social media.

On Sunday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge posted a short clip featuring a bulletin board pinned with the words "Happy Father's Day." The board included photos of Prince William, his father, Prince Charles, Middleton’s dad, Michael Middleton, and Prince Philip. “Wishing fathers everywhere a happy Father’s Day,” the duo captioned the post.

Philip sadly passed away earlier this year just a few months before his 100th birthday. The royal fam announced on April 9, 2021, that Queen Elizabeth's husband died “peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle.” Since his death, the gang has continued to share messages and tributes to the duke on social media to honor his memory.

Happy Father's Day, Prince Philip. You are incredibly missed.
