The Duchess of York shared a snap of her holding a slice of cake and grinning with glee on Twitter. Princess Eugenie paid tribute to her mother on Instagram, writing: “Happy birthday to my dearest Mumma”.
The Duchess of York celebrated her 62nd birthday on Friday and took to Instagram to express her gratitude to her followers.
Posting a picture of her blowing out a birthday candle, Sarah wrote: “Thank you so much to everyone for the kind and thoughtful birthday messages.”
Sarah and her daughter, Eugenie, were seen celebrating the birthday milestone in the China Tang restaurant in Mayfair.
Princess Eugenie shared a touching image showing the royal being cuddled by her mother, while hiking on the Balmoral Estate.
Sarah Ferguson celebrated her 62nd birthday
Sarah became a grandmother twice this year after her two daughters with Prince Andrew welcomed new additions to their family.
Back in February, Princess Eugenie welcomed a son with her husband Jack Brooksbank.
August Philip Hawke Brooksbank was born on February 9 and is the Queen’s ninth great-grandchild.
The choice of Philip pays tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh who passed away in April this year.
Sarah Ferguson and Princess Eugenie
Eugenie became an aunt on September 18 after her eldest sister, Princess Beatrice, welcomed her daughter, Sienna Elizabeth, with her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.
The Duchess of York previously gushed about her daughters claiming they had evolved from great daughters to great mothers.
Speaking on their podcast Royally Obsessed, hosts Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie discussed Fergie and her grandchildren.
They said: “Sarah Ferguson was born 15 October 1959 at London Welbeck hospital, meaning she’ll be 62 this year.
“It sounds really young to me, to be a grandma of two.
“Her life really seems to revolve around her kids and grandkids.
“Last week at an event with HELLO! magazine, she said Beatrice and Eugenie, my children, are phenomenal mothers.
“They were great children, and now they’re phenomenal mothers.

They added: “She talked about it being funny when August smiles, he’s seven and a half months, so you know he genuinely likes you.
“It’s not a put-on smile, he genuinely finds me very funny.
“How is he seven and a half months? Time flies.”
Despite splitting from Prince Andrew, Sarah has remained closed with the Royal Family and is believed to have spent part of the first lockdown at the Duke of York’s Windsor residence, Royal Lodge.
Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie
Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s son was expected to be christened over the summer but plans had to be shelved due to concerns with Covid.
A source told the Sun at the time: “One guest tested positive or was pinged for Covid contact and therefore no one else was able to gather.
“As a result, they called off the service and reception party afterwards at Royal Lodge, Prince Andrew’s home.”
They added: “The Queen and Eugenie’s parents Fergie and Prince Andrew had all been due to attend.”
