Princess Eugenie Biography

Princess Eugenie was born in London at The Portland Hospital for Women and Children on 23 March 1990, the second child of Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and Sarah, Duchess of York, and 6th grandkid of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. On 30 March, the seventh day after her birth, it was declared that the Duke and Duchess of York had named her Eugenie Victoria Helena.

She was baptised at St. Mary Magdalene Church, Sandringham, by the Bishop of Norwich, on 23 December 1990. She was the first royal baby to have a public christening, and the only one of the Queen’s grandkids not to be baptized in the Lily Font. Her godparents were James Ogilvy (her dad’s second cousin), Captain Alastair Ross (who was unable to attend), Susan Ferguson (her maternal grandfather’s second spouse), Julia Dodd-Noble, and Louise Blacker. She was named after Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg and after Princess Helena, Queen Victoria’s granddaughter and daughter respectively.

Eugenie’s folks divorced when she was six years of age. During school holidays, she spent her time with her family, as the divorce had been amicable. The Duke and Duchess of York had consented to joint custody of the girls. Eugenie and her sister frequently travel abroad with one or both of their parents. In the April 2008 issue of Tatler, Eugenie described her grandmother as “one of the most amazing women ever,” and her parents as “the best-divorced couple” she knew.

In October 2002, the 12-year-old Eugenie experienced back surgery at the Royal National Orthopedic Hospital in London to correct scoliosis; she still has two 12-inch titanium poles that were put in place in her back in the surgery. She made a full recovery a and is not expected to undergo any further surgery for the condition.

Princess Eugenie Engagement

The Duke of York’s Office at Buckingham Palace reported the engagement of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank on 22 January 2018. The couple has been dating for a long time, an estimate of 7 years, and were first introduced by a friend in a ski break in Verbier, Switzerland, where Brooksbank was working at the time. Jack proposed on one knee in Nicaragua, as the couple holidayed; he didn’t present a ring at the time, however, had purchased an oval-cut Padparadscha sapphire ring beforehand. Upon their return, he and Princess Eugenie worked on the design of a ring together; the finished design was the salmon-pink sapphire surrounded by a halo of diamonds, set on a gold band, with two further diamonds on the shoulders. Brooksbank confirmed he had asked Eugenie’s father for permission in the couple’s brief TV interview, conducted by The One Show host, Matt Baker. In April 2018, the couple moved from St James’s Palace and took residence in Ivy Cottage at Kensington Palace.

Princess Eugenie Wedding

Jack Brooksbank and Princess Eugenie wedding took place at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, on 12th October 2018. Since Princess Eugenie is ninth in the line of succession to the throne, the Queen’s permission to marry was not required under the Succession to the Crown Act 2013. Princess Eugenie will keep her royal style and title but will drop her territorial designation.  She will also have the option of taking her husband’s surname.
