Princess Eugenie pays tribute to Sarah Ferguson for birthday

Princess Euegnie paid tribute to her “completely unique” mum, Sarah Ferguson, on her birthday.

The royal mum-to-be told followers on Thursday that simply no one picture could capture Fergie's spirit.

"Happy Birthday to my dear mumsy... You are one of a kind," the 30-year-old wrote in the caption.

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

The nine-photo gallery showcased a number of recent shots and flashbacks including one with a little Princess Beatrice.

The Duchess of York, 61, also took to social media to thank her loyal followers for their kind birthday wishes.

"I just wanted to say a quick 'thank you so much' for all my wonderful birthday messages," she said.

The Duchess added defiantly: "61, still redheaded and not out!"

The greatest gift Eugenie could give her mother though is not due until 2021, and that is her and Jack Brooksbank’s baby.

"I am so excited by the news that Eugenie and Jack are expecting their first child," Fergie said of the announcement last month.

"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."
