It's Princess Beatrice's birthday (she's 31), and to celebrate, her family sent her sweet public well wishes this morning. I love them all, because it means some new, never-before-seen pics as well as little peeks into their royal lives. Spoiler alert: There's a fabulous new (to us) nickname involved.

Princess Eugenie's tribute might have been the very cutest. She captioned the photos, "You have been bossing it since before I was born and continue to be the most wonderful person, friend and big sister. Happy Birthday to you Beabea!!" Um, Beabea?? Did we know that was her nickname?? I knew her mom calls her Trixie, but this definitely feels new to me. I loooove this so much. Beatrice calls her sister Euge, so Beabea is utterly perfect.

You have to swipe through, but it turns out the two royals are very into selfies: 

And then of course, Beatrice's mom Sarah Ferguson came in with the obligatory adorable-yet-also-embarrassing baby shots, plus that cute photo of her with a whole bunch of dogs (she's just like me!):
