Sarah Ferguson Shares Rare Glimpse of Princess Eugenie’s Childhood

It seems Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson has more in common with Camilla Parker Bowles than we originally thought. Not only did they both marry into the royal family, but they also have rare pictures displayed in their homes.

This week, Ferguson celebrated Princess Eugenie’s 32nd birthday by sharing a never-before-seen childhood photo of her daughter. The pic features Eugenie riding a horse, and it’s kept in an engraved silver frame.


“Happy birthday my little Eugie,” the caption read. “You make every day the best with your golden heart.”

Princess Eugenie celebrated her birthday with her husband, Jack Brooksbank, and their son, August. She documented the occasion on her personal Instagram account and shared a photo of the family strolling through a park.

The pic doesn’t show their faces, but it does offer a rare glimpse into their everyday lives. Princess Eugenie wore a flattering floral dress, which she paired with white sneakers.

Brooksbank wore an equally casual outfit, featuring jeans and a sweatshirt. He also donned a plaid shirt, which complemented August’s striped trousers. He completed the look with a bright shirt that proves orange is the new black.

We really hope Princess Eugenie recreates her childhood photo with August.
