In honour of when the 31-year-old - who's ninth in line to the throne - was set to walk down the aisle to exchange vows with property tycoon Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, Sarah Ferguson took to social media to pay a sweet tribute to her daughter.

Writing a message of support on Instagram, the Duchess of York shared: "Love you my darling Beatrice. You have given me more joy than I could ever wish for.

"The most important thing is health and love and today I send it to you and all the other people that were getting married during this time ... so proud of you all."

The couple - who were set to marry in London at the Chapel Royal, situated within the grounds of St James's Palace - decided to postpone her wedding back in April.

Beatrice and Edoardo had been together for 11 months at the time they announced their engagement in September last year.

Father-of-one Edoardo proposed with a ring estimated to have cost £100,000, while the pair were holidaying in Italy.
