If you’ve seen news of any kind in the recent months, you’ve likely been bombarded with more information about the British Royal Family than you ever thought possible. Their family has gained an insane amount of popularity over the recent years, and people want to know everything about them, ranging from their day-to-day activities to what they have for lunch. Some might call this obsession madness, but more often than not, the attraction is out of sheer fascination.
When your entire life is under constant scrutiny, it’s inevitable that some less than glorious facts can emerge. These details show some royals in better standing in the public eye than others. Stories have emerged about Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice as of late, shedding light on their lesser-known life.
Eugenie and Beatrice are the daughters of Prince Andrew Duke of York and Sarah Ferguson. As of now, the sisters are 7th and 8th in line to the throne but will soon bump down to 8th and 9th once Prince William and Kate Middleton’s third child is born.
One thing that has come to light as of late is the lack of drive when it comes to working. The sisters seemingly have a difficult time holding down jobs and have been known to job-hop quite often. When they’re in-between employment, they spend their time taking multiple elaborate vacations. Now, they both have very vague job titles where Eugenie has said to work in the art world, and Beatrice is in the business world.
It’s also said that Prince Charles isn’t fond of his nieces - at all. In 2016, the Charles made a statement where he had plans to cut down the size of the monarchy. This move, likely aimed towards his estranged brother, would affect his two nieces drastically. We will never know whether this will come to light once Charles takes the throne.
The girls have been known to skirt the rules on multiple occasions. Princess Beatrice’s former love interest had a less-than-ideal track record. His name was Paolo Liuzzo and was convicted of assault and battery, resulting in the death of a man. Many say “any news is good news,” but this phrase isn't a preferable one when it pertains to the British Royal Family.
Princess Eugenie also likes to break the rules. The younger generation of the family strays away from social media accounts. Prince Harry’s fiancee, Meghan Markle, deleted her Instagram account soon after their engagement went public. Eugenie, however, decided to step out in defiance and create an account of her own. It’s increased in popularity, for obvious reasons, but it’s yet to be stated if she will keep it indefinitely.
While there are likely many things we’ve yet to learn about these sisters, one thing is for certain: they’re nothing like their more famous cousins, Prince William and Prince Harry. They prefer to march to the beat of their own drums and have not a care for the repercussions that follow.
