Sarah Ferguson turns 61 today (Thursday, October 15), and her daughter Princess Eugenie has shared an adorable Instagram post to wish her a happy birthday. Known formally as the Duchess of York, she’s known lovingly to the world as ‘Fergie’. But it also seems she has earned a special nickname from her youngest daughter.

Today Princess Eugenie called her mum by the nickname of “mumsy” in a sweet Instagram post dedicated to the royal icon.

Princess Eugenie wrote on Instagram: “Happy birthday to my dear mumsy… You are one of a kind.

“There were too many pictures to choose from that show how completely unique you are.”

Eugenie accompanied the sweet caption with various pictures of Sarah at home at the Royal Lodge, which she shares with her ex-husband Prince Andrew.

Some pictures show Sarah surrounded by flowers, and spending time in the garden.

Eugenie also chose a couple of throwback snaps of Sarah when she was younger.

One sweet snap showed Eugenie and her sister Princess Beatrice holding hands with their mum when they were children.

This will be Sarah’s last birthday before she becomes a grandmother for the first time.

Princess Eugenie is expecting a baby with her husband, Jack Brooksbank, who she married in 2018.

The Palace announced Eugenie was expecting a baby in a statement last month.

The statement read: “Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie and Mr Jack Brooksbank are very pleased to announce that they are expecting a baby in early 2021.

“The Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York, Mr and Mrs George Brooksbank, The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh are delighted with the news.”

When the news was announced Sarah said she was delighted to be becoming a grandmother.

She wrote: “I am so excited by the news that Eugenie and Jack are expecting their first child.

“Thrilled for them both and in my 60th year cannot wait to be a grandmother.

“Welcoming a new baby into the York family is going to be a moment of profound joy.”

It’s been an exciting year for the York family as in addition to Eugenie’s royal baby, her sister Princess Beatrice recently got married.

Beatrice wed Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in a small ceremony in Windsor, witnessed by her grandparents the Queen and Prince Philip.

Beatrice had intended to tie the knot on May 29, 2020, however the wedding had to be postponed due to the coronavirus restrictions.

The couple instead decided to wed in a secret ceremony, attended only by a small group of guests.
