Prince Andrew played a big part in her wedding day

It shows her and her dad embracing, and Prince Andrew's face lighting up with a smile at the sight of his daughter in her wedding dress. The ivory design was created by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos of the British design house Peter Pilotto to Eugenie's exact specifications, including a low cut back to show off the scar the princess has from the scoliosis surgery she underwent at the age of 12. 

The special moment took place at Princess Eugenie's October 2018 wedding 

Eugenie captioned the photo: "Happy Father's Day to all fathers and of course to my Pups. Thank you for many years of happiness and for this special moment on 12th October 2018." She also tagged her father's account, @hrhthedukeofyork, to be sure he would see it. 

Like her sister Princess Beatrice, Eugenie has always been close to both her dad and her mum, Sarah Ferguson, and takes pleasure in sharing photos from her family album on special occasions.

Eugenie likes to share behind-the-scenes family moments with her fans

Eugenie married her husband Jack Brooksbank, a businessman, after being together for seven years and this year he was honoured with an invitation to join her at Buckingham Palace for the annual Trooping of the Colour celebration for the first time. 
Their wedding ceremony took place at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, the same place that her cousin, Prince Harry married Meghan Markle in May of 2018, although it was a bit more of an intimate affair.
