Princess Eugenie just shared an hilarious candid photo of her and her dad Prince Andrew

Princess Eugenie, Prince Andrew

The private lives of the royal family are usually kept pretty secret, but Princess Eugenie's Instagram account is a great way to see some behind-the-scenes glimpses.

The 29-year-old loves posting candid throwback photos of herself and her family, and just recently, she shared some utterly adorable ones of herself and her parents, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.

Taken when Eugenie was just a little girl, she revealed that the pictures were from Princess Beatrice's sports day back in 1993.

Eugenie was only three years old at the time, while her older sister Beatrice was five.

Perhaps the most hilarious of the two pictures is one with Eugenie sitting on her mum's knee, whilst seeming to have a full-blown conversation with her father, Prince Andrew!

The Duke looks to be finding the conversation pretty funny, while three-year-old Eugenie doesn't seem so impressed.

Commenting on the funny picture, Eugenie said, 'With all this incredible sport taking place this summer I thought I'd throwback to us watching my Sisters Sports Day 1993! I wonder what Papa and I are talking about... #wimbledon #womensworldcup #cricketworldcup'. We wonder too!

The second picture showed Fergie and her youngest daughter looking particularly excited about the sports day - perhaps it was taken when Beatrice was competing?

Eugenie's fans shared with her how much they'd enjoyed seeing the pictures. One follower joked, 'That definitely was some serious conversation😂😍'

While another said, 'I love seeing these precious family moments ☺️ They’re very heart warming; thank you for sharing them with everyone!'

And a third fan also commented, 'Sweet moment captured! I bet he’d remember 😊'. We'd love to know what the funny conversation was all about!

Eugenie's photo comes just a few weeks before her older sister Beatrice's 31st birthday, on 8th August.

Recently, Beatrice was spotted with a bracelet, containing a sweet tribute to her boyfriend, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

Could it have been an early birthday present?
