Prince Andrew’s embarrassing blunder on Princess Beatrice’s birthday tribute
Princess Beatrice turned 31 on August 8 and her family took to social media to wish her well.
Her father, Prince Andrew, made a sweet post on Twitter where he shared a collection of photos with his oldest daughter, but fans were quick to notice something embarrassing.
In the original tweet that has since been deleted, the doting father had shared a photo of Princess Beatrice’s sister Eugenie on her wedding day instead of the birthday girl.
Naturally, the mistake was pointed out and it was swiftly rectified. You can see the updated tweet below.

There were four photos with the caption, “Happy Birthday Princess Beatrice. Thank you to everyone for the lovely birthday wishes!"
Duchess of York and Beatrice’s mother, Sarah Ferguson, wished her a happy birthday via Instagram, sharing photos that many royal fans have not seen before.
The tribute read, “Happy birthday dearest Beatrice” and had a variety of photos that showed Beatrice as a child with her mother and father, Beatrice playing in a sandpit as a child, as well as sitting outside with the family’s Norfolk terriers as an adult. The last photo in the Instagram post is a sweet one of the Duchess of York holding Beatrice in the snow.

Not to be outdone, her younger sister Eugenie added six photos of Beatrice and revealed the sweet nickname for her older sister in the caption.
"You have been bossing it since before I was born and continue to be the most wonderful person, friend and big sister," she wrote.
"Happy Birthday to you Beabea!! Xx"
The photos shared by her immediate family gave royal fans an insight into how Princess Beatrice spends her time as she doesn’t have a public Instagram account.
As Beatrice has a unique birth date, as she was born on 8:18 pm on August 8th, 1988 or 8/8/88, many royal fans had remembered the unique date and flooded her family’s social media pages with well wishes.
Beatrice was also given a birthday tribute from the official account for the Queen and Prince Philip.
The tweet read, "Princess Beatrice is the first child of @hrhthedukeofyork and Sarah, Duchess of York, and fifth grandchild of The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh. #HappyBirthdayHRH."
