Princess Eugenie shares adorable first glimpse of cousins Sienna and August at London zoo

One-year-old Sienna is the daughter of Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzie.

Princess Eugenie has given royal fans a first glimpse of her niece Sienna Mapelli Mozzi in a rare picture. The princess posted a picture of Sienna with her cousin, August Brooksbank, on Instagram on Saturday. The image captured the pair looking into the penguin pool at London Zoo in celebration of Earth Day 2023 as Eugenie revealed they “love going” to the zoo.

Posting a series of photos 34-year-old Eugenie said: “It’s World Earth Day and today is all about celebrating our planet and people doing amazing things that help protect it.

“Photo 1: August and his cousin Sienna love going to the London Zoo. It’s part of the Zoological Society of London @zsllondonzoo a global wildlife conservation charity that helps to restore habitats and protect wildlife. Every time you visit you are supporting their work.”

The other photos showed the royal enjoying the day including Eugenie, who is expecting her second child, getting involved herself with some oysters.

The final photo shows two-year-old August walking alongside his father Jack Brooksbank with the caption: “Because I love them and they love nature.”

It comes after the Princess of Wales shared a photo of the late Queen Elizabeth with some of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

the picture was captured by the Princess of Wales at Balmoral last summer, just months before Her Majesty’s death.

It shows the Queen alongside her oldest great-grandchild, Savannah Phillips, the eldest daughter of Peter Phillips, as well as Mia Tindall, who cradles her baby brother Lucas. Behind them are Lena Tindall, the middle child of Zara and Mike Tindall, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Isla Phillips and Prince Louis.

Standing right at the back are the Queen’s youngest grandchildren, Lady Louise Windsor and James, the new Earl of Wessex — the son and daughter of the now Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh.

One royal fan, on spotting the tiny image, wrote on social media: “We have yet to get any official photos or appearances of Sienna Mapelli Mozzi, but she can be seen with her father Edo in what looks like the throne room at St James’s Palace after her Christening. Sienna was christened in the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace in April 2022.”

Others missing from the family portrait are the children of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.

The photo was shared to mark what would have been the Queen’s 97th birthday.

Many of the young royals are expected to be alongside their parents at the Coronation of King Charles and Queen Camilla in two weeks’ time.

As second in line to the throne, nine-year-old George will play a poignant role in the ceremony as a page for the King, forming part of the procession through the Nave of Westminster Abbey.

There is no strict rule dictating whether or not children are allowed to be present at the coronation of a Monarch but it is unlikely we will see the youngest royals there.

Instead, we may see them at the more relaxed Coronation concert at Windsor Castle the following day.
