Former royal chef Darren McGrady previously told HELLO! that the monarch is such a huge fan of chocolate biscuit cake, leftovers were known to be packaged up and sent to Windsor Castle so she could tuck into them over a weekend!

In the other two photos posted to Sarah's Instagram page, the mother-of-two could be seen perched on a rock in front of a scenic view of the Scottish Highlands. It's likely that the snaps were taken on The Queen's Balmoral Estate, where the royal was invited to spend her summer holidays this year.

According to The Daily Mail, despite not being a regular visitor in recent years, the Duchess received an open invitation to spend time at the Scottish residence alongside her ex-husband, whom she still lives with at Royal Lodge, Windsor. 

Sarah's post comes after her youngest daughter Princess Eugenie shared a photo of the two of them to mark the special occasion on Friday. Posting to her Instagram account, she shared a photo that showed the pair embracing each other. The mum-of-one had a simple caption for her post, as she simply wrote: "Happy Birthday to my dearest Mumma.. @sarahferguson15."
