Princess Eugenie Celebrated Mom Sarah Ferguson’s Birthday with a Never-Before-Seen Photo

Princess Eugenie took a break from her normal social media programming to celebrate her mom, Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson.

This week, the 31-year-old royal shared a never-before-seen photo on Instagram in honor of her mom’s 62nd birthday.

The snap features Princess Eugenie and Ferguson perched on a rock as they smile for the camera. Both women are wearing casual outfits—while Eugenie is donning leggings, an oversized tee and trendy sunglasses, Ferguson is sporting a tartan jumper under a blue coat that’s tied around her waist. She’s also carrying red sunglasses, which bring out the details in her shirt.

The photo was taken during a hike through the highlands near the Queen’s Balmoral Estate. (FYI: The family typically spends their summer holiday at the royal residence.)

Princess Eugenie captioned the post, “Happy Birthday to my dearest Mumma… @sarahferguson15.”

Fans immediately filled the comments section with well-wishes. One person wrote, “Beautiful mother and daughter.” Another added, “What a lovely, precious photograph of you & your Mumma—a picture of carefree happiness against the wonderful backdrop of a beautiful rural landscape. It’s like a scene from a Jane Austen novel!”

The tribute should come as no surprise, especially since the mother-daughter duo often share photos of each other. Earlier this week, Ferguson celebrated Princess Eugenie’s third wedding anniversary and shared a picture of the newlyweds. “Happy Wedding Anniversary, what a magical day,” the caption read. “Thank you, Jack and Eugie for sharing your hearts…”
