While Mother's Day is still a few months away for those of us in the U.S., people in the UK are celebrating their moms this weekend. And Princess Eugenie marked her first Mother's Day as a parent by sharing a new photo of her baby boy on Instagram.

"I'm so excited to be August's mum and as you can see I'm enjoying my first Mother’s Day," she wrote in the caption alongside a photo of August enjoying the flowers. The newborn baby was sporting a knit cap and sweater, a onesie with whales on it, and some sweet bunny slippers.

Eugenie also paid tribute to her own mom, Sarah Ferguson (opens in new tab), in the post. "I'm also celebrating my beautiful Mumma with this picture of us from March 1990. You’ve taught me so much. ⁣Happy Mother’s Day to all 💐" she wrote.
