Princess Beatrice celebrated her 32nd birthday over the weekend in classic fashion - with a series of Instagram tributes.
The newlywed rang in her big day on August 8th no doubt to a plethora of love and support from her family and friends - and while her actual celebrations were understandably kept under wraps, there was still a public element to the day that we all got to enjoy.
"Happy happy Birthday dear Beabea 🐝," she wrote alongside two candid images of the sisters.
Referencing the first picture, Eugenie wrote: "Here we are on the eve of your wedding. Still rocking a scrunchie or hair accessory (since the 90s) and huge smiles on our faces."
In the second image, the Princess proved some things never change - the royal sisters are seen with their mother, Sarah Ferguson smiling particularly cheerily, with Beatrice's bright white hair accessory mirroring the very one she wore in the photo taken barely a month ago.
"Such a beautiful shot of two sisters, no make up, no nonsense just sibling love," wrote one fan referencing the first image.
Another quipped of the second archived shot: "Ah, back in the days where smiling just meant showing as many of your teeth as possible! Happy birthday to HRH."
"Happy Happy Birthday My Dearest Beatrice. 8.8.88 at 8.18pm was one of the greatest and most proud moments of my life. You are unique and simply one of the most special people on this planet. Your ever loving and devoted Mum," Sarah wrote.
A beautiful image of Beatrice as a young girl smelling a pink flower was included in the birthday tribute.
Buckingham Palace also shared a candid image of Beatrice having a chuckle with the Queen in an additional birthday tribute posted to @TheRoyalFamily's Instagram page.
"Wishing Princess Beatrice a very Happy Birthday!" the Palace wrote, before adding: "Her Royal Highness is The Queen's 5th grandchild."
"This [picture] was taken when The Princess joined her grandmother at a Maundy Thursday Service at York Minster."
