Sarah 'Fergie' Ferguson has returned to Instagram following her daughter's royal nuptials on Friday – and failed to mention anything about them.

Princess Beatrice, 31, married her Italian fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 37, in Windsor on Friday 17 July, in a secret ceremony attended by the Queen and her close family and friends.

The Duchess of York often uses the social media platform to gush about her two daughters she shares with Prince Andrew, but on this occasion she simply reminded her 285,00 followers that she was back on YouTube with another children's story.

The mother to Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, 30, was reportedly in attendance at the wedding alongside her ex husband Prince Andrew, who is believed to have walked his eldest daughter down the aisle to give her away.

But after Friday's private festivities it was back to business for the 60 year old royal, who launched her own YouTube channel during lockdown which she updates daily for 'Story Time with Fergie and Friends'.

"Today at 4pm on @storytimewithfergieandfriends I am going to be reading Peepo! by Allan and Janet Ahlberg and my guest friend is @michcalascioneoreilly," Fergie captioned the image of her holding up the book.

At 4pm on Saturday (18 July) the reading of 'Peepo' went live, and appeared to be pre-recorded as there was no mention of her daughter's nuptials, which had been postponed from their original 29 May date.

It appears as though Fergie was planning ahead of time, donning a colourful orange top with floaty split sleeves and a floral headband to read the children's story on camera.

Many royal fans took to Fergie's comments to send their congratulations for the mother of two, with many hoping that photos would appear soon.

"Congratulation for your daughter’s wedding from Italy Can’t wait to see some photos!![sic]," wrote one.

"Congratulations to you and your family would love to see some pictures," added another equally keen fan, as another begged, "Please show us pictures of the wedding."

The Queen, 94, the Duke of Edinburgh, 99, and Prince Andrew, 60, were at the small wedding with around 20 guests on Friday morning.

According to The Sun, Beatrice and Edoardo tied the knot surrounded by close family and friends in All Saints Chapel, Windsor Great Park.

The Queen and Prince Philip were driven from Windsor Castle, where they have been isolating since March, three miles up the Long Walk and through Windsor Great Park to the private church for the ceremony.

A friend of Beatrice's told The Sun: "They were obviously very keen for the Queen to come so the wedding had to happen before she goes up to Balmoral so this was a great opportunity.

"So many guests were disappointed not to make the big day but understood the reason for it.

"They are just like a normal family and had to make sacrifices like many others have up and down the country and looking forward to having a wonderful celebration when the time is right."

Beatrice and Edoardo were forced to put their plans to marry at the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace in London in May on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, and didn't announce a new date in its place.

The couple were beaten to the post to become the first royal wedding after lockdown as Princess Raiyah bint Hussein of Jordan wed Roald Dahl’s grandson Ned Donovan in a gorgeous countryside setting in a mystery London location.

Princess Raiyah joined Princess Beatrice in having to cancel their weddings following government restrictions during lockdown, but it she was finally able to say 'I Do' in what appeared to be a much smaller ceremony that intended.
