HE'S BEEN IN THE HOSPITAL FOR DAYS

Even though George has been ill for weeks, his condition stabilized, while his wife Nicola had not needed hospital care despite testing positive for the virus as well. 

Since Princess Eugenie and Jack are both in good health, they've been helping her mother Sarah Ferguson to get supplies like vegetables and fresh fruit to frontline NHS staff at hospitals around London and the rest of the UK.

PRINCESS EUGENIE IS CLOSE TO HER MOM

The mother-daughter duo is close, and in light of the current pandemic, Princess Eugenie gave a special shout out to her mom and "all the mothers that can't be with their children" on Mother's Day.

Alongside sweet throwback pictures taken with her sister, Princess Beatrice, Eugenie wrote:

“I would like to celebrate all the mothers that can’t be with their children because they are saving lives by keeping their distance.”

JACK AND PRINCESS EUGENIE'S LONGTIME LOVE

Next month, Princess Eugenie's husband Jack will celebrate his 34th birthday, and despite their longtime relationship, Jack is still "the light" of Princess Eugenie's life. 

Even though they married at Windsor Castle in 2018, the pair dated for seven years before they became engaged. With Jack now 33 and Princess Eugenie 30, the couple met when she was 20-years-old while on a skiing trip at the Swiss resort town where her parents have a home.

During an interview with BBC, Princess Eugenie gushed about her relationship with Jack prior to their marriage, as she said that they share the "same passions and drive for life."

TRIBUTE TO HER FATHER

Princess Eugenie also paid tribute to her dad earlier this year, when Prince Andrew celebrated his 60th birthday in February.

With a heartwarming picture taken during her early childhood, Princess Eugenie smiled up at Prince Andrew while she sat on a pony with him right by her side. In the caption, the 30-year-old kept things short and sweet with a "Happy birthday" wish.
