Princess Beatrice’s mother has finally broken her social media silence on her daughter’s recent nuptials.

Sarah Ferguson took to Instagram to share a gushing tribute to 31-year-old Bea following her wedding to Italian businessman Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi (36) last Friday.

“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,” the 60-year-old said.

Beatrice and Edo tied the knot in a hush-hush ceremony attended by only 20 guests at the Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor.

Amongst the guests were Beatrice’s grandparents, the Queen (94) and Prince Philip (99), as well as her disgraced father, Prince Andrew (60), who walked her down the aisle.

Fergie also thanked fans for their support. “Thank you to all the very special and kind people that took the time and trouble to send amazingly caring and supportive messages."

Andrew’s ex-wife also shared a poignant quote from American motivational speaker and writer Denis Waitley (87), which read,  “Happiness cannot be travelled to, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.”

Her post comes a day after her youngest daughter, Princess Eugenie (30), shared her own online tribute to her sibling together with a photo of the newlyweds.

“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,” she captioned it.
