Beatrice and husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are parents to three-month-old daughter Sienna, while Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank are mum and dad to baby boy August, nearly 11 months. While the royal siblings are extremely close, they do seem to have different parenting approaches.

The first contrast we've noticed is their views on privacy around their children.

When Eugenie welcomed August in February 2021, she shared a photo of herself and her husband Jack with their newborn on her Instagram page. She has since shared several sweet pictures of her son with her social media followers.

Beatrice, however, is keeping little Sienna out of the spotlight. The eldest daughter of Sarah Ferguson posted a cute print of her baby girl's footprints on her Twitter page shortly after giving birth, but since then has kept a very low profile as she adjusts to motherhood.

In keeping with Beatrice's desire for privacy, the royal recently moved house from their London home of St James' Palace to the quiet countryside of the Cotswolds, near to Edoardo's parents.

The couple's idyllic home reportedly has a swimming pool and tennis courts and is thought to be worth £3million.

The family also have the luxury of a holiday home in Italy, Edoardo's family's palace.

The property developer's family own a spectacular 18th-century property known as Villa Mapelli Mozzi in Ponte San Pietro, a small town an hour's drive from Lake Como in Italy – just the place for a peaceful escape.

Eugenie and Jack, meanwhile, have lived in Frogmore Cottage on the Queen's Windsor estate since November 2020.

The home was formerly made up of five separate properties for those working on the estate, but it was converted into one five-bedroom home in 2019 before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle moved in. The couple have allowed Eugenie and her family to use their UK base while they are living in Montecito, California.

While Windsor is a countryside town, it has a bustling centre with plenty of shops for Eugenie to peruse. She's also closer than Beatrice to the hubbub of London.

Of course, Eugenie also lives close to her parents, Sarah and Prince Andrew, who reside at Windsor's Royal Lodge along with her grandmother the Queen at Windsor Castle. There are plenty of family members to dote over baby August and the proximity will likely mean inclusion in more frequent royal gatherings.

Royal fans are hoping to see a little more of Beatrice's royal baby Sienna in 2022, especially with her christening likely to occur soon, however, it may well be that the new mum continues to shelter her daughter from the public eye.
