Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi visited the Chelsea Flower Show yesterday in a stand-in for Princess Eugenie, who is expecting her second child any day now.

Mother-of-one Beatrice, 34, appeared at Horatio’s Garden, which has been specially designed for people with spinal injuries, and posed for photos in the sunshine on the hottest day of the year.

Princess Eugenie, 33, who is heavily pregnant with her second child, is a patron of Horatio’s Garden. 

As she posted the photos of Beatrice and Edo at the event, she suggested her older sibling was representing her as she rests ahead of the birth.

Eugenie wrote: ‘I’m such a proud patron of this charity and my sister loved visiting yesterday.’

Princess Eugenie, who is already mother to two-year-old August whom she shares with her husband Jack Brooksbank, was glowing on the Coronation weekend as she took part in several events to celebrate her uncle King Charles being crowned.

As she and the family arrived at Westminster Abbey on 6 May to take their seats for the ceremony, Prince Harry, who sat with his cousin was pictured looking astonished at her baby bump.

Expert lip reader Jacqui Press deciphered his words to Eugenie, with whom he is incredibly close, as he saw her at the entrance to the Abbey.

She claims he said: ‘Wow, amazing look at the bump!’, using his hands to indicate to a heavily-pregnant Eugenie’s tummy.

‘I know‘, her husband Jack replied, smiling as he walked towards his seat.

Last week, Eugenie’s mother, Sarah Ferguson, appeared to let slip her youngest daughter’s due date.

Speaking to Hello!, Sarah Ferguson said: ‘We don’t know what it is yet. But the baby is due by the end of May, I think. So it’s any minute now.’ 

In the Instagram post announcing her pregnancy, Eugenie posted a photograph taken by her husband, showing her son August embracing her and kissing her bump in a field.

Prince Andrew’s youngest daughter and her husband Jack Brooksbank are already parents to two-year-old August.

During the interview with Hello, Prince Andrew’s ex-wife described herself as ‘one of the best grannies ever’, as she said she thinks ‘like a three-year-old’.

Last month Sarah said she loves being a grandmother and said her grandchildren find her ‘very funny’.

She told OK! magazine: ‘It’s a whole new phase of life and I am modelling myself on Super Gran.

‘I love being with them and how it brings out my inner child. My grandchildren seem to find me very funny. I love indulging them, too.’
