Sarah, Duchess of York has shared two adorable photographs of Princess Eugenie to mark the new mother's birthday today.

Royal fans will be aware that this is Eugenie's first birthday as a new mother, having given birth to her first child with husband Jack Brooksbank last month.

The couple welcomed a baby boy on February 9, who they named August Philip Hawke Brooksbank. Adorable! 

Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, Fergie shared two throwback pictures of her daughter – one as a little girl in her mother's arms and one as a baby.

She wrote, "The joy of children. In deep gratitude for my luck in my glorious girls. Happy Birthday Eugenie..."

She also shared a video of daffodils that morning with the words, "Happy birthday dearest Eugenie / when I see the colour of spring I think about your birth and what a gift you are / budding with colour and love xx"

A photograph and birthday message was also posted to the official Royal Family Instagram account. 

We're wishing Princess Eugenie many happy returns on her special day!
