Yes me too I also hope Eugenie has a happy and good life and a great marriage for her future marriage and children. I am glad she is a very beautiful and attractive young lady. I love Eugenie's clothes she is wearing in the photos I have posted there nice I like.

PROMOTION

 In the magazine interview the Queen's granddaughter talks about her "normal" life as a member of the royal family and how she doesn't really do the 'princess thing'




Covergirl Eugenie all grown up as her 18th birthday approaches

As Princess Eugenie prepares to celebrate her 18th birthday, traditionally marking the transition from childhood into adult life, she is revealed in an interview with a leading society publication as stunningly photogenic - and very much a young woman in her own right.

As the cover of British Tatler shows, the Duchess of York's younger daughter has blossomed into a beauty, while the accompanying report reveals a refreshingly down-to-earth and thoroughly modern teen.

And the sixth in line to the throne is disarmingly unaffected about her royal lineage. "How do I play the princess thing. I don't really," she muses. "I don't like talking about it much and find it annoying when people say things like 'Oh, you're a princess'."

She's more interested, it seems, in fashion, music - she cites Death Cab For Cutie and The Stereophonics as favourite bands - and planning her gap year. This may include a stint in Spain learning Spanish, although she confesses to being "more of a worker than a clever person" when it comes to academic subjects.

While both she and her elder sister Beatrice are considered charming and exceptionally polite, Eugenie reveals that in some respects they are like "chalk and cheese".

"I am shyer at first," she admits. "Like at a party I'll say to Beatrice as we go in, 'Oh, you go first'. But then when we're actually in I'm much louder and she's far more polite and solicitous." And there's another difference between them she admits. "I sort of inherited my dad's short fuse. I'm definitely not as polite as Beatrice!" she laughs.

Her approach to style is also quite different. It seems Beatrice takes after their fashion conscious mum - whereas Eugenie prefers a more relaxed approach. "She loves her glamorous dresses and her hair being curly or big - like Mummy's - and I hate volume!" she says. "I like my hair to be sort of flat. I like just throwing on a pair of jeans and generally being more understated."

From the Telegraph:

On her interests in books & music: "...listens avidly to Radio 1 ("Always Chris Moyles in the morning, though he talks too much!") and has a passion for poetry. She watches Big Brother but also loves explaining why John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men is one of her favourite novels....She likes hip indie music (Death Cab for Cutie, Stereophonics, Jamie T), reggae and "cool" art (a Jean-Michel Basquiat show in New York thrilled her). "...An avid reader (another favourite book is The Kite Runner), she is head of the Poetry Society at Marlborough - she recently escorted the poet Carol Ann Duffy around the school and gave the welcoming speech. "I hate to stand up and speak in front of everyone," she admits. "I feel terrified each time."

Her bracelets: "Nine bracelets, mainly cheap mementos from holidays abroad, line her wrists. One has "Fearlessness" written on it. "I don't know where it came from," she says. "I just thought it was quite cool." Others are bits of string, shell and plastic that she plays with as she gives her first media interview. The ninth bracelet - silver and engraved with the words "I'm with you always. Love you" - is the only clue to her royal identity; it is from her mother, Sarah, Duchess of York. She is very proud of being the younger daughter of the Duke and the Duchess of York."

Her temper: "I do have an occasional temper - I sort of inherited my dad's short fuse," she says with a self-knowing laugh. "I am definitely not as polite as Beatrice, I have to say. I tell it as it is. I am shyer at first. Like, at a party I will say to Beatrice as we go in, 'Oh, you go first.' But then, when we're actually in, I am much louder and she is far more polite and solicitous."

Family bonds: "Mummy, Bea and I call ourselves 'the Tripod' - they are my best friends in the world," says Princess Eugenie. She doubts she would have had the confidence to do this photo shoot without her tigerishly loyal mother being there. Her father calls to make sure all is well with daughter No. 2: "He is the best dad, an amazing person." 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

Her sense of normalcy: "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. Informed, cultured, charming and extremely well-mannered, they are in many ways just like nice girls-next-door. But they are certainly not saccharine sweet - their sense of mischief and humour punctures that notion. Nor are they demanding; they don't expect special treatment. In fact, the opposite. "How do I play the princess thing? I don't really," says Princess Eugenie. "I don't like talking about it much and find it annoying when people say things like, "Oh, you're the princess." One of my best friends jokingly says, "Hi, Princess," and I say, "Shut up". It is one of the things that bugs me most in the world." And at this she laughs.

On her grandmother: "She is seldom at Buckingham Palace, except for big occasions. Those aside, her royal life consists of Christmas at Sandringham and part of the summer holidays at Balmoral with the Queen and her father. She is a huge fan of "Granny": "Truly one of the most amazing women ever. She is also very funny. You can tell when she is happy, having all her family round at Christmas and watching them all laugh and having so much fun on Christmas Day. It just makes her very happy." What makes her so special? "All I can say is that she has this air of magic about her. And she is incredibly wise. What doesn't she know?"

On her name: "And, by the way, her name is not pronounced you-JAY-nee. It's YOO-genny, with the stress on the "Eu". "

On her back surgery: "It was by chance that she learnt something was wrong. Her mother was going to have a massage but Princess Eugenie took it instead. "This man massaged my back and said, 'Do you know you've got a deformed back?' I went to see a specialist and was told I had half a vertebra missing." Without surgery, her neck would have ended up at an increasingly acute angle. "What was meant to be a one-hour operation took eight. But it worked. They put in two metal rods and eight one-inch screws." She was 12 at the time....When the day came, they woke me at six in the morning for the operation and I was so tired I think I told them to go away and come back later. And then I woke up and it had all been done."...Her manners came to the fore even then. As she woke from the eight-hour operation she was anxious to thank the nurses. "I think this is one time when you do not have to think about politeness," her mother said as Princess Eugenie was wheeled into intensive care for three days. That was followed by a week in a normal ward and six days in a wheelchair. And then she was walking again. "I just feel lucky that it all went well," she says. "

Hard to find her being a princess "annoying".   First class travel,  security  personell and a privilaged lifestyle. And another front cover of a glossy. Right.

I agree with you, Robert.  And it's not as if she's had to take on any responsibilities as a royal princess yet anyhow.

I wonder with the so-called "downsizing" of the royal family if she or her sister ever will take up "royal duties"?  At least William and Harry did do service, in their  own way in South America and Africa. I respect them for that. 
 But these 2-?  Looks like potential Paris Hiltons to me.

The 'down sizing' of the RF will inevitably lead in the long run to the Wales boys and York girls being the 'working' faces. From what I understand, Beatrice and Eugenie ultimately do have a choice in this, and that they will be expected to 'work' if they wish to maintain their position. I suppose if either do a 'Stephanie of Monaco', the spectre of being 'sacked' may prove a 'stick and carrot' incentive, that and the option of promoting the Wessex children as alternative members of the 'team' in the distant future may prove useful to the 'Way ahead' group.

It is interesting how future and younger members of the RF, other than the children of the heir apparent will probably now be vetted for their suitability. I understand that although the Duke of York was furious when the concept of Beatrice and Eugenie being 'demoted' and then having to earn their place as Princesses upon reaching their majorities was initiated,  Sarah York was known to say, that she felt that it was crucial the girls grew up aware that their position was not simply a birth right but a privilege, which they would have to justify in time! She basically alluded to the fact that if they did not behave like Princesses, they would not deserve to be treated as such! Only time will tell!

Ah, the craziness of teenagers. This story cracks me up. The silly thing is, I would have been right there with them at that age. The joys of youth. But, what will her grandmother say...I would love to be a fly on the wall for that conversation.

There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why... I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?

Take him and cut him out into stars
And he shall make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night,

In case the link is broken some day:

"LONDON (June 14) -- Britain's Princess Eugenie has been reprimanded by her school after being caught frolicking naked on college grounds, it was reported Saturday. The 18-year-old daughter of Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and Sarah Ferguson, was apprehended for her involvement in end of term "high jinks" at the exclusive Marlborough College, west of London, the UK Press Associated said. A royal source told the Press Association: "It was nothing more than high jinks at the end of term in May. A group of them were reprimanded and that's the end of the matter." The tabloid Sun newspaper reported that a college staff member was woken by playful shrieks and found several young women dancing around without clothes."

Hopefully no cell phone camera photos will emerge!

Well, you can hardly blame her for walking around naked. After all with the way everyone criticizes her sister's clothes, she was afraid of wearing something they  wouldn't approve of!  ;)

Is Marlborough College part of a university or is it a high scholl/prepatory school for university. 

Did not Kate Middleton go to Marlborough College?
