Sarah Ferguson made sure her eldest daughter, Princess Beatrice, felt the love on her 31st birthday on Thursday. The doting mum-of-two took to her Instagram page to share a series of pictures of the royal - some never-before-seen - alongside this sweet message, which read: "Happy Birthday dearest Beatrice." One of the cute photos saw Beatrice as a young toddler posing on the deck of a ship, while another shows her as a grown adult sitting on the steps alongside five adorable pet dogs.

The post comes shortly after Beatrice's dad, Prince Andrew, uploaded a colleague of pictures. "Happy Birthday Princess Beatrice," he said. "Thank you everyone for the lovely birthday wishes! #HappyBirthdayHRH." Her younger sister, Princess Eugenie, added: "You have been bossing it since before I was born and continue to be the most wonderful person, friend and big sister... Happy Birthday to you Beabea!! Xx."

Beatrice was born on 8 August 1988, and her little sister Eugenie arrived on 23 March 1990. Although their parents separated in 1992 and divorced in 1996, the family-of-four remain close to this day. While plans of Beatrice's birthday remain private, it is likely that her family and her boyfriend Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi will make sure she has a day to remember.

In July, it was reported that Beatrice is planning to host a lavish dinner party to mark her birthday. The Queen's granddaughter will offer guests a plant-based menu, adhering to her new vegan diet, which she switched to after moving back to London from New York. Guests will be served a three-course dinner menu, while her birthday cake will also be dairy-free.
