    This weekend marked Father’s Day, seeing people across the globe celebrate fatherhood on social media.

    High profile figures were quick to get involved, with A-list dads from David Beckham to Jamie Oliver posting photos to commemorate their relationships with both their fathers and their own children.

    The royal family also got involved, sharing rare photographs of three generations of father-child relationships within the royal family.

    Kensington Palace, representing the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, released a childhood photo of Princes William and Harry posing in the country with their dad, Prince Charles. Alongside it was also a sweet up-to-date photo of Prince George and the Duke of Cambridge.

    ‘Happy Father’s Day,’ the palace captioned the snap. ‘Wishing all the fathers out there a very happy day.’

    Clarence House, representing the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall, were quick to follow suit, posting a photo of a young Prince Charles sailing with his father, Prince Philip.

    The archive snap was captioned: ‘Happy #FathersDay! The Prince of Wales and his father, The Duke of Edinburgh, take part in a motorboat race on the Isle of Wight in 1958.’

    Thousands of users liked and shared the royal tributes, although many were quick to question why Princess Charlotte wasn’t mentioned, hoping for more photos of the adorable two-year-old in future.
