Princess Beatrice has surprised royal fans with another new appearance, appearing for the first time on her mum Sarah, Duchess of York's YouTube channel! The royal was the latest guest on 'Storytime with Fergie and Friends', adorably reading The Worrysaurus by Rachel Bright – and she sported another bargain buy from high street brand Zara for the occasion. We're in love with those statement puff shoulders and the pretty button-up detail of the dress.

Sadly, it looks like Beatrice's Zara pick is no longer available – it's thought to be the 'Shirt dress with balloon sleeves' from a previous collection. There is a very similar version currently available in the brand's sale, however, reduced to just £19.99.

The Princess gave a sweet insight into her close relationship with her mother in the video, sending a touching message before she began reading. She said: "It's my first time reading… and mum, I love 'Fergie and Friends', so thank you for having me… thank you for making 'Fergie and Friends' such a wonderful part of the last few weeks. Love you mum!"

How lovely is that? Beatrice showed off her beautiful skin with a fresh-faced look and wore her strawberry blonde hair loose and natural, and appeared to be filming the clip on a wooden chair in her garden.

But I'm missing my other daughter but it's just like everybody else, we are just the same family as everybody else."
