The royal family posted a whole host of sweet photos Wednesday following Prince Philip’s passing and one is of him and Queen Elizabeth II surrounded by seven of their great-grandchildren.

In one of the pictures shared by the family on Instagram, we see the Queen and the late Duke of Edinburgh posing for a candid picture in 2018 with their great-grandchildren that included the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s children, Prince George, Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte.

The caption of the second post read, “Today, members of the Royal Family have shared photographs of The Duke of Edinburgh, remembering him as a father, grandfather and great-grandfather.”

The candid shared pictures were posted just days after the royal “passed away peacefully” at the age of 99 at Windsor Castle.

“It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen announces the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh,” a royal statement read at the time.

“His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle,” it added. ‘Further announcements will made in due course. The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss.”
