Unlike her little sister and most of her first cousins, she appears to be the only one among her generation of recently grown up British royals whose neither settled into a career, or at least found a niche for herself in public life. Of course, those readers of this blog in the know realize that a career of taxpayer funded public service isn’t an option, at least for now, for Her Royal Highness, given her uncle, the Prince of Wales’s, recent decision, which has received the blessing of the Queen, that both the current and future structure of the working Royal Family will exclude. When contemplating the alleged travails of Princess Beatrice, one can’t help but compare her to her little sister, Princess Eugenie. The author and Her Royal Highness reside in the same city, travel in similar social circles, and have a handful of social friends in common.
However, it has been suggested that Princess Eugenie wanted her sister to take care of their mother, the Duchess of York.

Princess Eugenie, the eighth in line of succession to the British throne, is perhaps best known to American audiences for her fashion statements, specifically the bold headpieces that she and her older sister, Beatrice, tend to favor.

Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie of York are seventh and eighth in line, soon to be eighth and ninth following the birth of their cousin Prince William's third child, and they've been allowed more freedoms for being further down that royal ladder. Which isn't to say, however, that Queen Elizabeth II's granddaughters—the daughters of her third-eldest child, Prince Andrew, and his ex-wife Sarah, Duchess of York (aka the original Fergie)—haven't been immersed in royal duties, or haven't been enjoying the creature comforts that come with being HRH.

The princess has many cousins, including the Duke of Cambridge (Prince William) and the Duke of Sussex (Prince Harry). She is currently ninth in line for the throne, so it’s unlikely we’ll ever see her as queen of England. According to Vanity Fair, the princess and her now-husband moved into Ivy Cottage, a three-bedroom house on the grounds of Kensington Palace earlier this year. This would make them neighbors of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (William and Kate) and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex (Harry and Meghan). Princess Eugenie Works Full-Time. Princess Eugenie works full-time in the art world.
As she approaches her 18th birthday, Princess Eugenie talks to Geordie Greig about her life, her family, her dreams and 'one of the most amazing women ever' - her grandmother. Princess Beatrice is also at the shoot all day with her sister, giving her views and support. Their mother does the same but is locked in multi-phone negotiations over several continents. A fax machine and a printer are commandeered so that Sarah York Inc can keep rolling. Princess Eugenie is a natural in front of the camera. She's startlingly photogenic, almost like a young Audrey Hepburn, with flawless skin and a beautiful smile (her teeth were recently freed from braces). But what marks both sisters - much more so than their cousins, Princes William and Harry - is their normality and lack of a sense of royal entitlement.
Unfortunately for Princess Eugenie, her family has been embroiled in scandal practically her entire life. While Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, and Prince Andrew were married, the pair reportedly spent just 42 days a year together, as the prince focused on his naval career. During their time apart, Eugenie's mother was often snapped partying and vacationing with various men. So much so that Queen Elizabeth's sister Princess Margaret (Fergie's aunt-in-law), actually sent her a letter condemning her actions, which the Telegraph quoted as reading, "You have done more to bring shame on the family than could ever have been imagined." It seems time has not healed all wounds. When Eugenie tied the knot in 2018, the palace, even all these years later, reportedly warned Fergie to be on her best behavior, but, as she told Good Morning Britain (via Express), she paid no attention to their wishes.
Princess Eugenie might be just that – a Princess – but that doesn’t mean she sits around sipping tea all day while having her cushions fluffed.

So when Eugenie (born Princess Eugenie Victoria Helena of York) got married, there was no precedent for her to be named the duchess of any realm. And as a female, she isn’t eligible to inherit her father’s Dukedom of York. This is true despite that a non-royal female who marries a prince will take on the title of “duchess” if her husband is granted a dukedom. It could be in the Queen’s prerogative to make an exception, but while the Queen is very fond of and attached to both Princess Eugenie and her older sister, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie (or as she is formally known, “Her Royal High

“Spare a thought, then, for Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie. This week at a Buckingham Palace garden party, the sisters were pictured trailing in the wake of Kate, who was a vision in a fitted cream Alexander McQueen coat. The three women weren’t walking together, gossiping companionably, as you might imagine, say, Zara Phillips, Beatrice and Eugenie might have done. More than that, the Princesses were giving the Duchess what would appear to be some rather chilly looks.” However, the tensions between Kate and Sarah Ferguson’s daughters goes back years to before she and Prince William were even married. Their unfavorable view of one another is based upon more than just a competitiveness to appeal to the masses, it involves a brief relationship that one of the sisters’ friends had with Prince William while he and Kate were on a break from their pre-marital romance.
Apparently, the newspaper claimed Eugenie's sister and Princess Beatrice will be handling all things hen, and is planning a 'do in none other than party-centric Spanish island Ibiza. Little further has been reported however, so it's unclear whether these rumours are true or in fact have any truth to them at all. “She has already had her hen night, but it was certainly very low-key," a source told the newspaper at the time. "There isn’t such a tradition attached to hen nights as there is to stag parties. It was done privately. Not all of Kate’s friends were there, and she will be catching up with other friends over the coming weeks.”

Eugenie ‘not allowed’ September wedding.
