Princess Beatrice celebrates her 34th birthday today. The royal typically spends her birthday in private and is likely to mark the occasion with her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and daughter Sienna Elizabeth. Beatrice and Edoardo split their time between St James’s Palace in Westminster and the Cotswolds. 

The pair married back in May 2020 and they welcomed their first child together in September 2021. 

Last year, Edoardo took to Instagram to pay an emotional tribute to his then-pregnant wife, sharing how much he adored Beatrice as she turned 33. 

The picture showed the pair embracing with a view of the sea in the background.

Edo, as he is affectionately nicknamed, captioned the image: “Happy birthday my love.

“I love you with all my heart.”

Beatrice’s mother Sarah Ferguson and younger sister Princess Eugenie soon followed suit, with both women also using Instagram to mark the princess’ birthday. 

Eugenie posted a montage of photos, including shots of the duo when they were children at a baseball game, swimming with dolphins and holding hands as they wore matching white dresses, to pay tribute to her sister. 

The caption read: “Happy Birthday to my big sissy. BeaBea you are sensational and I have loved every minute watching you be brave and true…and you…and now a mummy to be :)” 

However, no other members of the Royal Family publicly wished Beatrice a happy birthday, leaving keen-eyed royal watchers confused. 

One tweeted: “Still no ‘Happy Birthday’ wishes to Beatrice from Queen, Charles, William… What’s going on?”

Despite using their social media accounts to post about Team GB’s success in the Tokyo Olympics, Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William did not share a birthday message for Beatrice. 

The official accounts for Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall also remained silent about the royal birthday.

It stood in contrast to just four days earlier, when Meghan Markle celebrated her 40th birthday and received well-wishes from her royal relatives across the pond. 

On August 4th, the Queen’s official Twitter account posted three photos to mark the Duchess of Sussex’s birthday.  

The photographs — one of the Queen and Meghan, the second of the Duchess, her husband Prince Harry and their son Archie Harrison and the third of the happy couple. 

It was accompanied by the caption: “Wishing The Duchess of Sussex a very Happy Birthday today!”

Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge tweeted: “Wishing a happy 40th birthday to The Duchess of Sussex!” and shared a picture of Meghan during a Royal Tour. 

Charles and Camilla also joined the list of royals who wished the former Hollywood actress a happy birthday on social media. 

Royal fans took to Twitter to express their confusion, with one posting: “Adorable post from Edo to Princess Beatrice. 

“Also, no love from @RoyalFamily but another certain non-working royal who is not a granddaughter of the monarch got a HBD post.

“Interesting,” they said referring to Meghan.

Another added: “They tweet about the one who left who isn’t a working royal but don’t post for the Queen’s granddaughter?? Shameful.” 

“Why is there no Happy Birthday tweets for Beatrice from the Royal Family?” asked another.

“They did it for Eugenie on the Royal Family Instagram account,” said another who had evidently scrolled back to March to find that post. 

However, others were quick to point out that the royals could have wished Beatrice a happy birthday privately, rather than posting it on social media. 

One royal fan defended the family, saying: “Maybe because they can talk in person? Don’t have to do it via media!”

Another agreed: “Think it’s because they are closer to Her Majesty and no need to let uncle Tom Cobley and all know of their birthday wishes.

They added: “Do you tell your brother you wished your aunt a happy birthday?”

On Thursday, when Meghan marked her 41st birthday, Camilla and Charles and the Cambridges used Twitter and Instagram to share their birthday messages for the Duchess. 

However, the Queen did not publicly acknowledge the occasion. 

The Royal Family Twitter account only shared one post on Thursday, strictly focused on an engagement carried out by one of its hardest-working members, Princess Anne.

It included three photographs taken during the Princess Royal’s meeting with cadets at the Redford Barracks ahead of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, of which she is the Royal Patron.

The post read: “One day to go! The Princess Royal was in Edinburgh this morning where she enjoyed a sneak peek of the @edinburghtattoo rehearsals ahead of their opening night tomorrow.

“The Princess, who is Patron of @edinburghtattoo, met piper training cadets at the Redford Barracks.”

While the Daily Express’ royal correspondent initially noted the Queen’s “notable absence” when it came to celebrating Meghan’s birthday, he later stressed that the lack of public acknowledgement was not a snub. 

He explained a new social media practice being adopted by Buckingham Palace when it comes to marking royal birthdays. 

Richard Palmer wrote in the Daily Express: “It is thought the Queen congratulated Meghan privately yesterday but her official website neglected to mention her birthday after deciding it will only mark the birthdays of non-working members of the family when they end in a zero.”
