Princess Eugenie, 30, and Princess Beatrice, 31, have both had to cancel big plans amid the coronavirus crisis. While Eugenie had to spend her 30th birthday at home last Monday Beatrice looks almost certain to postpone her wedding which was due to take place on May 29.
Princess Beatrice and her fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 36, were due to tie the knot at the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace and the Queen, 93, was going to host the wedding reception at Buckingham Palace.
However, it has since been announced the reception has been called off and that the couple are re-assessing their options amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Beatrice and Edo were understood said to be considering having a very small ceremony for family members.
However, the current UK lockdown measures mean the only church services still able to go ahead are funerals.
But wedding and birthday plans aside the famously close sisters will be missing one thing above the rest.
While Beatrice lives at St James's Palace, Eugenie and her husband Jack live at Kensington Palace and the sisters will be unable to meet up in the coming weeks.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has urged Britons to limit all social contact and to only leave home for essential things.
These essential exceptions include grocery shopping, medical reasons, exercise once a day, or to provide care for others.
This means Eugenie is unlikely to have celebrated her 30th birthday with her sister and will probably not see her for several weeks.
Eugenie sent a heartfelt message to fans on Instagram following her birthday.
The message read: "Thank you for all the wonderful birthday messages XX"
The post was accompanied by an adorable photo of Eugenie as a baby with her parents Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew.
Eugenie also shared a message to thank NHS staff at The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, of which she is a patron.
The Instagram post read: "I'm so proud of my hospital, The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, as they have become a trauma centre for the first time since 1982 due to the incredibly challenging time we face and the unprecedented pressure all hospitals and their staff face.
"It has created a Covid-19 fund for the RNOH's staff that urgently need our support.
"The purpose of the fund is to help their frontline clinical staff in any way possible – from providing meals, to purchasing essential equipment items, to supporting mental health in a time of crisis."
Sarah Ferguson was also pictured earlier this week delivering care packages to hospital staff.
She shared a photograph of herself with a large box of baked goods from Lambertz Gruppe bakery.
The message read: "Thank you @hermann_buehlbecker and @lambertz_gruppe for your support of all the hard workers in the UK #coronavirus #lambertz."
Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson are understood to both be based at his royal residence the Royal Lodge in Surrey during the current lockdown.
Despite divorcing in 1996 the couple are still good friends and share a home.
