Princess Eugenie is sharing an intimate look into her family life in celebration of Earth Day.

The granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth, 33, posted a selection of photographs on Instagram Saturday to mark the annual occasion, including an adorable snapshot of son August Philip bonding with cousin Sienna Elizabeth.

In the image, August, 2, can be seen watching penguins at a zoo exhibit while standing beside Sienna, 1 — whose parents are Princess Eugenie’s sister, Princess Beatrice, and her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

“It’s World Earth Day and today is all about celebrating our planet and people doing amazing things that help protect it,” Princess Eugenie began the caption of her post, before describing what each photograph shared shows.

“Photo 1: August and his cousin Sienna love going to the London Zoo. It’s part of the Zoological Society of London @zsllondonzoo a global wildlife conservation charity that helps to restore habitats and protect wildlife,” she said, detailing the first image posted. “Every time you visit you are supporting their work.”
