Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson's message came hours after Buckingham Palace released a statement on behalf of the Queen and the senior royals that read: "The Queen, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been informed and are delighted with the news of the birth of a daughter for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex."

They later all took to Twitter and Instagram to share their individual messages, each alongside a different photo.
