This royal duo is #sistergoals. Princess Eugenie revealed Princess Beatrice’s nickname in a sweet birthday post. The royal sisters are only two years apart, so, understandably, they have a special bond. Princess Beatrice celebrated her 31st birthday no Thursday, Aug. 8, and received a slew of birthday wishes from her famous friends and family — including her younger sister, Princess Eugenie.
In honor of her older sister’s birthday, Princess Eugenie took to Instagram with several never-before-seen photos of the two and their family. One throwback showed Princess Beatrice holding her mother’s hand as a toddler, while another showed the sisters as young girls with matching ponytails. Beatrice and Eugenie are the daughters of Duke of York, Prince Andrew, and Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson. “You have been bossing it since before I was born and continue to be the most wonderful person, friend and big sister… Happy Birthday to you Beabea!! Xx,” Princess Eugenie captioned the Instagram, which also included a photo of Ferguson hugging her young daughters in matching dresses.
Princess Eugenie, naturally, wasn’t the only royal who wished “Beabea” a happy birthday. The princess’s mother, Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson, also got in on the birthday action with a throwback photo of Princess Beatrice as a young girl. The black-and-white picture also featured Princess Beatrice’s father, Prince Andrew. “Happy Birthday dearest Beatrice,” Ferguson captioned the image.
Princess Beatrice works for a data and software firm in New York City, according to People, and will likely be spending her birthday with family and boyfriend, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. Prince Andrew also sent his daughter a birthday wish on his Instagram, which included collage of photos of the royal father and daughter. “Happy Birthday Princess Beatrice,” he wrote in the caption, complete with a cute emoji.
Finally, the official Royal Family account also celebrated Princess Beatrice, writing, “Wishing Princess Beatrice of York a Happy Birthday! Her Royal Highness is the first child of The Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York and fifth grandchild of The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh #HappyBirthdayHRH.” The message was punctuated with a red balloon emoji. Happy birthday to Her Royal Highness!
