Sarah Ferguson is thinking of Princess Eugenie on her birthday.

On Thursday, Eugenie's 33rd birthday, the Duchess of York, 63, celebrated her youngest daughter with a loving Instagram tribute starring a throwback photo. In the image, a young Princess Eugenie kept it cool in a denim jacket, sunglasses and a pink hair bow.

"Happy Happiest of birthdays, my Eugenie .. Spring flowers always tells me the excitement of your birthday is soon and here we are. You are my magical beloved daughter and I am so proud of you," Fergie, as the Duchess of York is affectionately known, captioned the photo.


A proud mother of two, Ferguson shares daughters Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice with ex-husband Prince Andrew. The princesses are both close with their mom, who recently told PEOPLE that they call themselves "the Tripod."

Opening up about her "granny" era, the Duchess voiced her joy in seeing her daughters as parents today. Princess Beatrice, 34, is mom to 1-year-old daughter Sienna Elizabeth and is a stepmother to husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi's son Wolfie from a previous relationship, while Eugenie welcomed son August in Feb. 2021 and is currently expecting her second child with her husband, Jack Brooksbank.

"One, I'm really proud of my girls. Two, I have very good grandchildren. Three, the most important thing is that you really focus on turning to joy," the Duchess told PEOPLE of life lately.

Mother's Day was celebrated in the U.K. on Sunday, and the author of the new novel A Most Intriguing Lady shouted out Eugenie and Beatrice in a sweet social media tribute, sharing a childhood shot of her daughters having a matching fashion moment.

"I'm so proud of my girls and the beautiful women and mothers they have grown up to be. I feel extremely blessed to call them mine. My darlings, you are my sunshine always & forever," she wrote of the photo, where the sisters walked in sync.

Princess Eugenie also marked Mothering Sunday, as the holiday is known in the U.K., with an Instagram tribute to her son, 2-year-old August.
