Princess Eugenie is congratulating her sister Princess Beatrice on her exciting baby news in the perfect way.

The royal mom, who welcomed her own first child with Jack Brooksbank in February, posted a special congratulatory message to Princess Beatrice on Instagram on Thursday. Marking World Bee Day, Eugenie, 31, couldn't help but reference her own sister, who is also nicknamed Bea.

"It's World Bee Day!! 🐝🐝 A day to celebrate nature's most badass little friend with their black and yellow stripes. But our furry friends have to share today with my big sis Bea (🐝) who's got a little one on the way. Beabea and Edo huge congratulations on your news – can't wait to meet the little one."

The news comes 10 months after Beatrice, 32, wed Edoardo, or Edo as he is affectionately known, wed at Royal Lodge in Windsor during a low-key wedding ceremony witnessed by Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip after their May wedding was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Alongside the message, Eugenie posted a never-seen-before picture from the couple's special day. Standing in front of a flower bed, the couple is holding hands and beaming.

In addition to the romantic photo, the youngest daughter of Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew posted a more casual picture of her sister and Edo too. Looking rainsoaked, a second picture shows the couple cuddled up with a picturesque waterfall in the background.

And her brother-in-law was quick to comment on the heartfelt message by his sister-in-law. "Thank you. So thrilled our little family is growing, ❤️"

The expectant parents were pictured together during an outing in London on Wednesday, with Beatrice wearing a pink dress, displaying her baby bump in public for the first time.

While the baby will be the couple's firstborn child together, Edo is already dad to Christopher Woolf, known as 'Wolfie,' from a previous relationship with American architect and designer Dara Huang. Wolfie served as pageboy at the couple's July nuptials.

The new arrival will be the Queen's 12th great-grandchild once Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's baby girl arrives in the coming weeks.
