Lego Princess Peach set briefly appears online ahead of tomorrow's Mario Day
UPDATE: Peach range arrives 1st August.
UPDATE 10/3/22: Yesterday's leaked Lego Peach electronic toy and the Princess Peach's Castle set have now been officially unveiled by Lego and given a 1st August release date.
Lego Peach has her own Starter Course, just like Mario and Luigi, which features Lemmy and a Lava Bubble.
Princess Peach's Castle, meanwhile, includes Toadette and Ludwig, plus a throne room room where you can reveal Bowser. (Still, it's a shame this wasn't a full minifigure-scale set.)

ORIGINAL STORY 9/3/22: Tomorrow, 10th March, sees the return of Nintendo's officially recognised annual Mario Day (Mar10, if it helps) and, among the usual festivities, it looks like Lego is preparing to unveil a brand-new set in its Lego Mario range, this one themed around Princess Peach.
In truth, the existence of the set is in little doubt at this point; a bunch of pictures showing off a new Lego-fied Princess Peach and friends briefly appeared on Lego's official Instagram page earlier today (as reported by JaysBrickBlog) before quickly being yanked back into hiding.
Princess Peach's arrival as an digitally enhanced Lego Super Mario character - complete with blinking eyes and chest display - follows Luigi's debut last October. And like Luigi, who joined the gang alongside a threesome of interactive play sets spookily inspired by Luigi's Mansion, Peach will apparently launch alongside a thematically appropriate play set of Peach's Castle.
As pictured in Lego's leak, the castle itself comes complete with all the usual turrets, drawbridges, and wildly egotistical stained glass windows you'd expect from Peach. Additionally, Lego's premature reveal also unveiled a number of new characters inspired by New Super Mario Bros. Wii: Ludwig Von Koopa, Spike, a Boomerang Bro, and a yellow Toad.
There's no mention of the new sets on Lego's Mario Day 2022 webpage, but I shall update thos story with confirmation and pricing just as soon as Lego is ready to do its official reveal.
