To be a princess--spoiled and adored! Few real princesses have enjoyed such a life. The real princesses have been lost in our love of fairytales. Princess Palace explores their lives and loves, adventures and tragedies. Let’s celebrate and commiserate with these most (un?)fortunate of women.
With rumors running rampant about an imminent engagement announcement for Princess Eugenie of York and her longtime beau Jack Brooksbank, I decided to click through some photos of baby Eugenie from the early 1990s. What a treasure trove I found!! I could not resist this throwback to the ever-present floral patterns of that era--how nearly I had forgotten them. (Although my own college photos certainly attest to the trend.) I hope you enjoy this fun pic of Eugenie with her mum Sarah, who was still HRH The Duchess of York, and Princess Alexandra's granddaughter, Zenouska Mowatt. The colored shoes and ankle socks are almost as adorable as these royal toddlers! And, I'm not quite sure if Eugenie is toting a security blanket or a white cardy to match her cousin's purple one.
