Fergie, mother of the bride

And like that, she's back in the room. Let's face it, Fergie never really went away. But within moments of her younger daughter, Eugenie, announcing her engagement, La Ferg was in full throttle and reminding everyone why she made us laugh and cringe all at the same time. So often. The comments that followed the news of Royal Wedding Number 2 were almost as joyous as the big announcement itself and herald the start of a new age of Fergie. Bet the Queen can't wait.

Yep, if there's one thing to wipe the smile off the face of monarch who has just seen a beloved grandchild announce their engagement to widespread happiness that has upped the standing of their dynasty, it's the prospect of a steady stream of Fergie-isms between now and the wedding this autumn. And quite possibly beyond, this is Fergie we're talking about. Her first tweet once the news was common knowledge set the bar. Look at the picture above. Here we go everyone.

Plenty of people talk about getting a son when their daughter marries but a brother? Mmmm. That's before we get to the ''total harmony'' and embraces of ''pure joy''. Well, it's a happy day. Within moments, SarahTheDuchess (as she's known on Twitter) had them floating with ''laughter and love''. Stay tuned, it gets even better.

The mother of the bride (that outfit is worth waiting til the autumn for all by itself) ended her congratulations with a tweet in which she shared one of her favourite sayings. Apparently, this falls from Fergie's lips on a regular basis despite no one else ever having heard of it. Water, it seems, flows well to its destiny thanks to the solid rock guiding it. You have about ten minutes to work out what that actually means before the next set of bon mots is due from Sarah, Duchess of York. But if the prospect of a second Windsor wedding this year wasn't enough to get you grinning then the fact that we have about nine months of such glories from Eugenie's mum should put a smile on your face that would brighten any January day. It's time to settle down - here comes a whole year of Fergie.

Another month, another glossy mag with a princess as its star. After Kate did Vogue and Mary did Vogue (again), this time round it's Eugenie doing Harper's Bazaar. The seventh in line to the throne features in the US September issue of the magazine, looking very glamourous while she's at it.

The House of Windsor at 100: daughters of the Crown

On July 17th 1917, George V issued a royal proclamation changing the name of his royal house and family to Windsor. It was the beginning of dynasty that would set records and change the concept of modern monarchy. And it's a house built on and by women. We've already met some of them when remembering the consorts, now we turn to the royal daughters. Four women have been born to the monarchs of the House of Windsor, all of them hugely important. As we mark the centenary of this special dynasty, here are the daughters of those who have worn the Crown.

The Queen's January

January is always a low key month for the Queen. She stays at Sandringham throughout the month and we mostly get to see her as she heads out to church. But while the public appearances have been as restrained as usual, Elizabeth II has found herself hovering close to the headlines in what's proved to be a busy month for the monarch.
