While parents in the U.K. celebrate Mother's Day on a separate date than moms and dads in the Philippines, Father's Day is observed simultaneously. And this morning, as dads in both countries are being treated like kings, the British royal family is marking the holiday by posting sweet photos on Instagram. The pictures range from a portrait of Charles with his two sons, to a sweet snap of Prince William playing with Prince Louis, and a never-before-seen photo of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's one-month-old son, Archie Harrison. Read on to see all the royals' Father's Day posts this year.

The British royal family's official Instagram account celebrated father's day this morning with two photos of the Duke of Edinburgh. The picture on the left shows Prince Philip with Princess Anne and Prince Charles at Balmoral Castle in 1952. The second picture was taken at the same location but with Prince Andrew and Prince Edward twenty years later.

Prince Charles shared just one photo this morning: a portrait with his two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. The picture was taken by Getty photographer Chris Jackson in celebration of Charles's 70th birthday last fall.

Princess Eugenie

Princess Eugenie wished her father Prince Andrew a happy Father's Day by sharing a never-before-seen photo from her wedding. It shows her embracing her father, the Duke of York. The photo seems to have been taken inside St. George's Chapel, where Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank said "I do."
