Elsewhere, Tatiana – who will celebrate her first wedding anniversary this July – delighted followers with a heartwarming photo of herself baking at home. In the picture, her growing baby bump took centre stage next to a disc of neatly rolled-out pastry.

She went on to talk about her baby's gender, adding: "A few answers to the most common questions: no, I'm not still riding, yes I miss it desperately, we don't know what sex baby is, it'll be a surprise on the day, I have been and am still feeling fab. Very lucky I know! Xxx".

Fans and friends were quick to heap praise on Tatiana, with one writing: "The last picture made me smile; bump and baking," while a second chimed in: "Utterly adorable booties. I hope your pregnancy is going well, sending love and best wishes".

A third commented: "Sending you both much love on this new exciting journey," and a fourth simply added: "Congratulations," followed by a trio of red heart emojis.

Tatiana, the eldest child of George Mountbatten, shared news of her pregnancy via social media earlier this month. Taking to Instagram on Thursday, Lady Tatiana posted a delightful photograph of herself rocking a bump-skimming jersey dress.
