Meanwhile, eldest daughter Princess Beatrice, 33, had baby Sienna with husband Edoardo Mozzi in September 2021.

When Sarah attended HELLO!'s Inspiration Awards in October, she couldn't help but gush over the family's latest arrivals.

"Sienna, she's very, very beautiful," she said, later telling HELLO!: "It's so funny because when August smiles at me now, because he's seven and a half months, you actually know he genuinely likes you. It's not a put-on smile, he genuinely finds me very funny which is quite lucky."
