On Saturday, Princess Eugenie has shared a touching birthday greeting with her ‘dearest mumsy’ Sarah Ferguson. 

The 32-year-old royal took to Instagram to post the message to the Duchess of York, who turned 63 on October 15.

Eugenie shared a selection of candid images featuring her mother, and wrote a caption alongside them.

It said: ‘Half an hour left to go of October 15th 2022 but better late than never.. Happy Birthday my dear mumsy!’

Meanwhile the royal marked her birthday on Instagram herself by sharing a series of heartwarming pictures of her snuggling up with the Queen’s corgis – calling Muick and Sandy the ‘present that keeps on giving’.

Earlier this month the mother-of-two gave an update on the two corgis she adopted following the death of the Queen in September.

The Duchess of York, 61, now cares for the two dogs, Muick and Sandy, with her ex-husband Prince Andrew, 62, at their Royal Lodge home near Windsor Castle.

Speaking at the recent Henley Literary Festival, the royal described taking care of the animals as a ‘big honour’, according to the Telegraph.

She added that Muick and Sandy are ‘national treasures’, noting that they have been well-trained, describing them as having been ‘taught well’.

As Sarah and Andrew already shared five Norfolk terriers, the two corgis have had to integrate with them.

According to the Duchess: ‘They all balance out, the carpet moves as I move but I’ve got used to it now.’

The dogs were a gift to the Queen from Andrew and his daughters Princess Beatrice and Eugenie following the death of the Duke of Edinburgh.

It was believed the pair had been walking the dogs in the months leading to the Queen’s death.
