After Princess Beatrice got married, a few royals offered up their congratulations (publicly and privately, mind you), but nobody posted a message as sweet as Beatrice's sister, Princess Eugenie. In an Instagram post, Eugenie said that it was a "joy" and "privilege" to grow up alongside her sister and wished her all the best with her new husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.
"What a complete joy and privilege to watch you, my beautiful big sister, walk down the aisle to dear Edo," Eugenie wrote. "I am so proud of you and I'm excited to support you in the next chapter of your life. We are going to have so much fun together."
