Princess Beatrice, 32, has been spending lockdown at St James’s Palace in London with her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. While Beatrice is extremely close to her parents Prince Andrew, 61, and Sarah Ferguson, 60, and her sister Princess Eugenie, 30, she has been unable to see them during lockdown.

On February 9, Eugenie gave birth to a baby boy and this Sunday will celebrate her first Mother’s Day since becoming a parent.

Eugenie, her husband Jack Brooksbank, and their son August Philip Hawke are currently living in Windsor at Frogmore Cottage which has been on loan to them from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry since December.

Frogmore is a short distance from Andrew and Fergie’s home the Royal Lodge in Great Windsor Park.

Following the birth of baby August, Fergie and Andrew have bubbled with Eugenie to lend a hand with childcare.

Telegraph royal editor Camilla Tominey reported last month: “It is certainly convenient that Eugenie and Jack are now based just a stone’s throw away from Windsor Castle, having moved into Frogmore Cottage following the departure of Harry and Meghan to the US almost a year ago.”

She added: “It is understood the new parents will be spending a great deal of time at Royal Lodge, the Windsor home Prince Andrew shares with his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, with whom they are now able to form a ‘support bubble’ following the baby’s birth.”

If Eugenie and Fergie are bubbled-up as reports suggest then the mother and daughter will be able to celebrate Mother’s Day together this Sunday while Princess Beatrice will have to forgo the event.

Despite a relaxation of lockdown restrictions on March 8, these only permit two people from separate households to socialise outdoors, meaning Beatrice is unable to see her mum and sister without breaking the rules.

Last month Fergie revealed she was overjoyed to have become a grandmother.

The Duchess told Hello: “I am so excited and thrilled to have become a grandmother.

“August Philip Hawke Brooksbank, a wonderful grandson and he brings such joy, smiles and love to all our family.”

Fergie added: “Jack and Eugenie are and will be superbly caring and wonderful parents.”

Princess Beatrice is a stepmother to Edoardo’s four-year-old son Christopher Wolf, who is known as ‘Wolfie.’

Earlier this month Bea lifted the lid on her experience being a stepmother.

In an Evening Standard piece to mark World Book Day, Beatrice revealed she had been reading stories to Wolfie.

The Princess wrote: “This year, I had the great honour to become a stepmother and have had the most remarkable time going back over some of my most favourite stories at bedtime.

“Together, we had such a special time reading through all the entries for Oscars Book Prize 2020.”

One way Beatrice could be able to spend time with her mum and sister is if Eugenie were to get Baby August christened in the coming weeks.

According to Government guidelines, some christenings can still to go ahead despite restrictions, and more than two family members are allowed to attend the special ceremony.
