Beatrice has featured in the majority of Eugenie's Instagram posts. Last week, the pair were pictured in a gorgeous throwback photo of them as bridesmaids. The image was taken in 1993 at the wedding of the sisters' former nanny, Alison Wardley, and shows the girls all dressed up for the occasion in embroidered white gowns, complete with ruffled skirts, and with floral headbands in their hair. Alongside the snapshot, Eugenie wrote: "90s throwback… wedding planning starts!"
