The Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, has broken her silence on her daughter Princess Beatrice's secret wedding.

Princess Beatrice married her fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi last Friday in a private Windsor ceremony, surrounded by her closest royal relatives, including her grandmother the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.

Princess Beatrice's mother took to social media to pen a sweet tribute in honour of the special day.

Expressing her pride of her daughters, Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, Duchess Sarah wrote, 'Never has a mother been more proud than the wedding of Eugenie and Jack, and again with my Beatrice’s loving wedding to Dear Edo. I am so lucky with my girls, and now the best sons-in-law.'

'Thank you to all the very special and kind people that took the time and trouble to send amazingly caring and supportive messages,' Sarah, who shares her royal daughters with Prince Andrew, wrote online.

Meanwhile, Beatrice's younger sister Eugenie, who tied the know with her husband Jack Brooksbank in 2018, shared a gorgeous photo of Bea and Edo on the special day.

'Couldn't Bea happier (get it) 🐝... What a complete joy and privilege to watch you, my beautiful big sister, walk down the aisle to dear Edo. I am so proud of you and I'm so excited to support you in the next chapter of your life. We are going to have so much fun together. Happy wedding day to you both,' she wrote.

The tiara worn by the bride was worn by the monarch on her own wedding day back in 1947.
