Her Majesty’s official Royal Family social media accounts shared a black and white photograph this morning of Prince Philip, Prince Charles and the Queen’s own dad, King George VI in 1951.
The image, which was taken in Balmoral and also featured the Queen, was posted with a message paying tributes to dads around the world.
The sweet post read: “To all dads everywhere, we wish you a very special Father’s Day.
“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.”
Today marks the royal family’s first Father’s Day without Prince Philip following his death on April 9, 2021, just weeks before what would have been his 100th birthday.
The Duke of Edinburgh and the Queen had four children, Charles, Anne, Andrew and Edward.
Prince Charles also shared a picture of the Duke of Edinburgh, alongside images of his sons Prince William and Prince Harry.
The pictures were accompanied by a caption that read: “To all Papas everywhere, and to those who may be missing their Dads today, we are thinking of you and wishing you a special #FathersDay.”
The images also featured Camilla with her late father.
Meanwhile the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared a video and wrote: “Wishing fathers everywhere a happy Father’s Day.”
The short clip, shared by Kate and William, featured pictures of both their dads, Prince Charles and Michael Middleton.
As well as their three children, George, Charlotte and Louis and the late Prince Philip with his great grandchildren.
