Prince Andrew has no doubt got himself in hot water with his daughters, after he wished the wrong one a happy birthday on Twitter.

Yesterday, the Duke of York took to his social media account to upload a collage of pictures of him with his beloved 31-year-old eldest daughter, Princess Beatrice, for her birthday.

But in a cringeworthy moment, the 59-year-old accidentally posted four photos of himself with his youngest daughter, 29-year-old Princess Eugenie.

It’s not clear whether the duke has a social media manager or if he manages his Twitter account himself, but the images were taken down within minutes of appearing online.

That didn’t stop people from screenshotting the Queen’s son’s bungle and reposting it all over the web.

“Emmm this is a wee bit awkward,” one Twitter user wrote, alongside the image.

The first image shows Prince Andrew, Sarah Ferguson and their daughters, Princess Beatrice and a newborn Princess Eugenie.

The second shows a young Princess Eugenie riding on a horse while looking up at her dad, and the third shows Prince Andrew standing tall on the balcony with Eugenie by his side.

In the last photo, Prince Andrew looks like the proudest dad in the world as he waves on the steps of St George’s Chapel in Windsor, as Princess Eugenie stands beside him in her wedding dress.

It was of course not Princess Eugenie’s birthday, but Princess Beatrice’s, who turned 31 yesterday.

We’re sure the eldest daughter of Fergie and Prince Andrew gave her dad some stick for his mistake.
