Sarah Ferguson posts snaps of her and ‘soul mate' Andrew for Beatrice’s birthday

Sarah Ferguson the Duchess of York today celebrated her daughter’s 31st birthday.

Princess Beatrice, Prince Andrew and Fergie’s eldest child, is celebrating the milestone, possibly with family.

To mark the occasion the royal divorcee posted a series of throwback images on her Instagram account.

She treated the public to eight unseen images of the family and their first daughter.

Many pictures showed Sarah and Andrew when they were still happily married.

A black and white shot showed a smiling Sarah looking directly in the lens and she holds a baby Beatrice on her hip. The little girl is pointing at something Andrew, on the baby’s left, is pointing to as well.

A second shot shoes a very fresh-faced Duchess of York cradling a tiny little Princess Beatrice who must have been just days old when the snap was taken. Andrew is smiling at the camera wearing a blue shirt and patterned tie.

In another adorable image Sarah plays with a young Beatrice, wearing an adorable pink snow suit, in the snow.

The Duchess is wearing blue jeans and a brown suede jacket with a white fox hat.

Many of Sarah 234k followers liked and commented on the post she captioned: “Happy Birthday dearest Beatrice.”

One commented on the relationship between the Duchess and her former husband.

“You and Andrew are Soul Mates,” one said.

Another wrote: “This is probably the best royal family. After all they have been through they are still friends…”

“Awe… happy birthday to a wonderful young lady. SF you are a great mom!” another said.

Princess Beatrice’s birthday is likely to be an event she will ring in with her boyfriend Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 36.

Many believe it is likely Beatrice and her beau will become engaged soon.

Katie Nicholl, a royal correspondent for Vanity Fair and author of Harry Life Loss and Love, reported a friend as saying: “They are very happy and in love. Sources predict that an engagement may not be far off.”

The pair met many years ago, as their parents are friends. Edo’s step-father Christopher Shale was a close friend of Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew.

However, Beatrice and Edo were first spotted together in March, leaving London celebrity haunt Annabel’s in a cab.

Edoardo is an Italian businessman. The multi-millionaire established his real estate firm Banda 12 years ago in 2007 and has served as CEO since then.

Sarah Ferguson: Five facts about the Duchess of York


Sarah is the second daughter of Major Ronald Ferguson and Susan Mary Wright.

Her parents divorced in 1974, with her mother going on to marry polo player Héctor Barrantes in 1975 and moving to Argentina. Sarah stayed in the UK with her father, who remarried in 1976 and went on to have three more children.


Sarah married Prince Andrew on 23 July 1986 at Westminster Abbey in London.

She wore an ivory-silk wedding gown designed by Lindka Cierarch which had a 17 foot train and 20 foot veil. As is tradition, Sarah wore a diamond tiara, and her wedding band was crafted from Welsh gold.

The couple spent their honeymoon abroad the real yacht Britannia off the coast of the Azores Islands.


Sarah and Andrew divorced in 1996 after separating in 1992.

However the couple remain on good terms, even living together in the Royal Lodge from 2008 until Sarah moved to a ski chalet in Switzerland they bought together in 2015.


Sarah has written children’s books for many years, her first being a series about Budgie The Helicopter in the early 90s.

She has also been the US spokeswoman for WeightWatchers after famously battling her weight over the years.

On top of commercial endeavours, the Duchess devotes plenty of time to charity, including Children in Crisis, which she founded in 1993.

Social media

Fergie, as she is known to friends, uses both Twitter and Instagram.

She has over 200,000 followers across the platforms, and shares many insights in to her life.

Most of the Royal Family are not on social media, but are represented by Kensington Palace, Buckingham Palace, or Clarence House.

Sarah’s daughters, Beatrice and Eugenie, are the exception, with both joining their mother on social media.
