Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York has a close relationship with both of her daughters - Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.

And now she has revealed the sweet nickname she uses for her eldest daughter, Trixie-Belle.

Fergie, 60, made the admission during the latest episode of her YouTube series, Storytime with Fergie and Friends, on which Princess Beatrice was her guest.

She said, "Oh my darling Trixie-Belle, I cannot thank you enough for doing this for your Mummy.

"This is just incredible and you're so beautiful and I look at you reading these stories and I'm just the luckiest person alive to have two of the most beautiful girls. Thank you so much."

The Duchess of York has been separated from her eldest daughter during lockdown as Beatrice, 31, is currently spending lockdown with her fiance Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and his family in the Cotswolds.

It's not the first time Fergie has let slip intimate details about her home life in recent weeks - much to the delight of royal fans.

Just a few weeks ago the children's author took to Instagram to celebrate “International Family Day” and paid tribute to her own “united” family.

Things haven’t been easy for the family in recent months after Prince Andrew’s friendship with convicted sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein, forced him to step down from royal duties for the “foreseeable future”.

The Duchess of York and Prince Andrew have always remained the “happiest divorced couple in the world” and continue to live together at Royal Lodge in Windsor Park despite splitting in 1996.
