Before Princess Eugenie celebrates her own big day — her Oct. 12 wedding to fiancé Jack Brooksbank — she’s wishing the happiest of birthdays to her big sister, Princess Beatrice.

Eugenie, 28, celebrated Beatrice’s 30th birthday on Wednesday by sharing a number of photos to her personal Instagram page, starting with a baby photo of the royal with their mother, Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson. Another shot was from the siblings’ spread in the September issue of British Vogue, while a candid closeup and a group shot of Fergie with her two daughters rounded out the collection.

“Happy 30th birthday to you Beatrice… what an amazing sister you are and we are so proud of the person you have become!” Eugenie sweetly captioned the post.

The bride-to-be also told the magazine that she’s “not stressed at all” about the upcoming nuptials, which will take place at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle before a short carriage procession around the town, just like cousin Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. 

“It’s nerve-racking because you want it to be perfect, but then you realize that you’re going to be with the person you love forever and nothing else really matters,” she said.
