Sarah Ferguson delighted her Instagram followers on Sunday with a rare photograph of a young Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, sharing the heartfelt post in aid of Mother's Day.

The Duchess of York, who shares two daughters with her ex-husband Prince Andrew, shared a photograph of the princesses captured in 2001 for the Duke of Edinburgh's 80th birthday. The then-teenage royal sisters donned similar satin suits in candy-coloured hues and matching headbands, swinging their handbags in perfect unison. Take a look at their close sisterly bond in the clip below…

Duchess Sarah penned the sweetest message to her daughters. It comes just after the royal revealed to HELLO! what Beatrice and Eugenie are like as mothers. She wrote: "I'm so proud of my girls and the beautiful women and mothers they have grown up to be.

"I feel extremely blessed to call them mine. My darlings, you are my sunshine always & forever. #happymothersday."

Celia Walden chimed in: "You have good reason to be proud," adding a red heart emoji.
