Princess Eugenie has led the royal tributes to the late Prince Philip as the family mark what would have been his 100th birthday.

The new mum, 31, said she was “thinking of Grandpa” as she shared a touching picture of the Duke of Edinburgh alongside the Queen after her wedding in 2018.

The royal couple shared a smile with the priest who married Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank.

Following her meaningful post, several members of the royal family shared their favourite moments with the prince to celebrate what would have been his milestone birthday.

Prince Charles, 72, shared a previously unseen black and white picture from his childhood as he held his father’s hand after Philip returned from a trip to Malta in 1951.

The Prince of Wales, who recently talked about his legacy for his grandchildren, also shared a more recent photo of the late Duke as he transferred his role of Colonel-in-Chief of the Rifles to The Duchess of Cornwall at Windsor Castle last July.

He captioned the memorable post: “Remembering Prince Philip today on what would have been his 100th birthday!”

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge went on to remember the late Duke with a sweet picture of the Queen after she was gifted a Duke of Edinburgh rose by the Royal Horticultural Society last week.

They shared the moment the Queen planted the meaningful flower by the East Terrace Garden, which she’ll be able to look out onto from her private rooms at the castle.

The President of the Royal Horticultural Society, Keith Weed, said: "It’s a rose named the Duke of Edinburgh Rose to mark his centenary and it’s a commemorative rose for all the marvellous things that he did over his lifetime and for everyone to remember so much that he did.”

He added: "Each rose, there's a donation that goes to the Living Legacy Fund which will help more children. It's a beautiful flower in itself, a double flower."

To which she replied: "It looks lovely," and said it was "very kind" of him to present her with it.

"Right now with a cold Spring and nature being a bit behind it doesn't look so lovely but that’s what it will look like," he continued before pointing to a picture of a rose.

Her Majesty proceeded to watch as Windsor’s head gardener Philip Carter planted the rose.
