Why are Princess Beatrice, Eugenie, Sarah Ferguson, and Andrew having a weekend celebration?
PRINCESS BEATRICE is expecting her first child, and she and her sister Princess Eugenie, as well as their parents Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew, could mark a significant milestone this weekend.
Princess Beatrice, 32, is expecting her first child with her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. The royal baby is due in the autumn, and Beatrice is celebrating her final birthday before becoming a mother this weekend. Princess Eugenie, 31, and her parents, Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew, are quite close to Beatrice, and the family may be able to celebrate together on Sunday.
On August 8, Beatrice will turn 33 years old, and she may choose to spend the day with her family.
She and Edoardo share an apartment in London’s St James’s Palace, but they may travel to Windsor on Sunday.
Eugenie lives in Frogmore Cottage in the grounds of Windsor Castle with her husband Jack Brooksbank and their baby child August, while Fergie and Andrew live at the Royal Lodge in Great Windsor Park.
The Royal Lodge is the family home of Beatrice and Eugenie, and it occupies a particular place in their hearts.
The late Queen mother used to live in the royal home, but it was passed down to Andrew after she died.
Following her covert wedding ceremony in July of last year, Beatrice chose the residence for her wedding celebration.
Despite Sarah and Andrew’s divorce in 1996, the York family is exceedingly close.
Following their divorce, they co-parented Beatrice and Eugenie and continue to live together to this day.
Given the family’s closeness, it’s likely that they’ll all be in Windsor to celebrate Bea’s birthday.
During an interview on ITV’s Lorraine earlier this week to promote her debut adult novel, Fergie discussed the significance of family.
“Prince Andrew is simply such a nice man and he’s a really good father,” the Duchess told Christine Lampard about her family.
“We performed an excellent job of co-parenting, which is why our daughters are strong and have their feet planted firmly on the ground.”
“But now as a grandfather, oh my goodness, you know he’s really wonderful, he can talk for hours about football and all those kinds of things, but it’s a joy to see him really shine as a grandfather,” Fergie continued.
“Family unity: communication, compromise, and compassion are the three c’s that I believe are essential,” she continued.
As part of the “Brinkwire Summary News,” Fergie and Andrew have been assisting Eugenie with childcare.
