Princess Beatrice has a lot of look forward to in the coming months with her sister Princess Eugenie due to give birth to her first child next year. Beatrice, who has become stepmother to Edo’s son Wolfie, will also be a royal auntie earlier next year according to a statement from Buckingham Palace. In a second message post on Twitter today, the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, gushed about how it was an honour to wear a dress from the Queen, which Her Majesty loaned to her for the special day as well as a tiara. Sharing a picture of her wedding dress on display in Windsor Castle, the Princess wrote: “It was an honour to wear my grandmother’s beautiful dress on my wedding day, I hope many of you are able to visit the exhibition which is still open at Windsor Castle.”
