And yesterday was no exception, as Princess Eugenie shared a super-sweet picture of herself on the beach as a child.

The picture shows the young Princess in a matching blue swimming costume and sunhat, with a bucket in spade on hand. Eugenie also appears to have plenty of sunscream on too, with it being hilariously visible on her face and arms.

She posted a tounge-in-cheek caption go alongside the photo, saying, 'As the Summer is coming, here is a throwback to when I clearly did a good job at rubbing in my sun cream! 🌞🌞#tbt'.

And another fan said, 'Think our mums all did that to us when we were little lol 😂'.

It's not clear where Eugenie is in the picture, but it's safe to assume that she, Prince Andrew, Fergie and her sister Princess Beatrice were likely all on a family holiday, or day out somewhere.
