Princess Eugenie Posts A Heartbreaking Tribute To Prince Philip

Princess Eugenie has broken her silence following her grandfather Prince Philip's death, sharing a heartbreaking letter to him via Instagram. Alongside two photos of the princess and her grandfather, the touching tribute began, "Dearest Grandpa,⁣ We all miss you."

Eugenie then pointed out how much of an impact Prince Philip had on the world, as demonstrated by the amount of tributes being shared in the days since he passed away. "You would be so touched by all the tributes that have been shared with me the past few days," Eugenie wrote. "⁣People remember sitting next to you at a dinner, or shaking your hand once, who remember you saying hello in passing, or remember how much their DofE award meant to them."

⁣But it's her personal memories that have everyone feeling her pain. "I remember learning how to cook, how to paint, what to read. I remember laughing at your jokes and asking about your spectacular life and service in the navy," she continued. "⁣I remember incinerating the sausages and you swooping in to save the day.⁣ I remember your hands and your laugh and your favourite beer."

Princess Eugenie named her son after Prince Philip

After explaining that he will live on through his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, Princess Eugenie also thanked Prince Philip for all his grandfatherly love, telling him not to worry about the queen. ⁣"Thank you for your dedication and love for us all and especially Granny, who we will look after for you," said Eugenie (via Instagram), before signing off, "With all my love."

Princess Eugenie and Prince Philip seem to have had a very close relationship, with the princess naming her first son August Philip Hawke after him. Introducing August to the world this February in a post on her Instagram Stories, Eugenie wrote, "On his grandfather's birthday weekend, thinking of my grandfather, we are introducing our little boy. He is named after his great grandfather and both of his great x5 grandfathers" (via BBC).
