Prince Andrew made an awkward mistake when wishing daughter Princess Beatrice a happy birthday

  • Princess Beatrice celebrated her 31st birthday yesterday
  • But The Duke of York made a surprising error when celebrating the special day
  • This follows royal news (opens in new tab)that Sarah Ferguson will be working with Pegasus Group Holdings

When sharing a series of images on Prince Andrew’s official Twitter page, the dad mistakenly posted some featuring her younger sister Princess Eugenie by mistake.

The series of images featured Prince Andrew and Princess Eugenie making their entrance at St George’s chapel, alongside another photo from a different royal engagement.

Thankfully, Prince Andrew (or probably his team) soon spotted the error, replacing images of Princess Eugenie with Princess Beatrice as intended.
