When it comes to high-profile mother-daughter relationships, Sarah Ferguson and her two daughters Princess Beatrice, 32, and Princess Eugenie, 30, have always been incredibly close.
And this week, their unbreakable bond was put on full display after Princess Eugenie took to her Instagram page to pay tribute to her "dear mumsy" on her 61st birthday.
Posting to her whopping one million followers, the pregnant royal praised her "completely unique" mother while sharing a slew of never-before-seen candid family photos from behind palace walls.
"Happy Birthday to my dear mumsy... ⁣You are one of a kind," the 30-year-old began.

"There were too many pictures to choose from that show how completely unique you are," Princess Eugenie, who is expecting her first child with husband Jack Brooksbank in early 2021, signed off her touching post.

Eugenie also uploaded an adorable throwback of her mum holding the hands of her and older sister Beatrice when they were just little girls in 1992.
Sarah also took to social media to thank her followers for their well wishes.
"Hi everybody, I just wanted to say a very quick thank you so much for all of my wonderful birthday messages - 61, still red-headed and not out," the good-humoured Duchess quipped.

The next big family milestone for the Yorks will be the arrival of Eugenie and Jack's first child in 2021.
In the past, Sarah Ferguson has dropped big hints she was getting into grandmother mode, admitting she'd make an "excellent" granny.
"I used to write children's books, and I am a child, I haven't grown up," the 61-year-old explained during an appearance on UK current affairs program The One Show.
