Princess Eugenie Earns a 2:1 University Degree
Princess Eugenie has been awarded a 2:1 in her degree from Newcastle University. Eugenie started at Newcastle in September 2009; she had previously gained A grades in English and Art, and a B in History of Art in her A-levels at Marlborough College.
The younger daughter of the Duke and Duchess of York read a combined degree in English Literature and History of Art. When asked about the Princess’s plans for future, a Buckingham Palace spokesman said: “She’s considering her options like many graduates at the moment.”
The young royal issued a short statement, where she described her time at the university as “fantastic” and thanked her tutors: “Newcastle University has given me such an incredible three years. I have had a wonderful time in the North East, learning and having a fantastic experience. The staff and tutors at Newcastle have guided me through my years there and given me great support. I am so lucky to have spent time there. I wish all the students graduating this year the very best of luck in the future.”
Her proud parents issued a joint statement: “Eugenie has worked incredibly hard to achieve this excellent result and we are immensely proud of what she has done, particularly gaining a first in her dissertation. She has had a wonderful time at Newcastle University and has greatly enjoyed her time in the North East.”Filed under British Royals
