Good for her. Perhaps the "olders" are reconsidering their need for the two pretty princesses.

Perhaps the Palace is testing the waters?

Don't think it's the palace, it's the press. The stories about Charles scalling down the family, Beatrice being refused to join "the firm" or not allowed to participate in the Jubilee events all came from unnamed sources in the press.

This isn't a surprise at all. She has a connection to that hospital and they are going to be naming a new section after her. Being the patron can be done without her having to do any official duties. All she has to do is attend a couple of dinners or fundraising events during the year.

I think it's great that she has taken on that specific patronage, she's mentioned before that she'd like to use her experience with scoliosis in the future, so it doesn't quite surprise me.

Eugenie can use her name and fame to bring more awareness to the condition and that is definitely a good thing. I actually wish she would talk more about it and her surgery. As for her weight loss, I hope she doesn't lose her curves.

As she is still a full-time student there is plenty of time for her to talk about this issue.

She is not supposed to be a full-time royal and she is a minor royal at that so she isn't all that famous. I mean how many people, outside of forums like this, would even know who she is? Sadly outside of William and Harry most people don't know the younger royals at all.

I'm not calling out for her to drop out of school and be a full time working royal, I am just agreeing that what she is doing is a good thing and any attention she can bring to a good cause is a positive, even if it isn't as much as William or Harry.

It good to hear princess Eugenie doing this, based on how she did maybe she' ll be doing more.

This is not evidence that she is going to work for 'The Firm'. It is simply one patronage that she could have and also still work in a real job full-time. Being a patron has some work involved but as it is a local hospital in the UK it wouldn't be all that taxing - a couple of dinners and a fete and some meetings occasionally. She is committing herself to maybe six functions a year and a name on a letterhead. If this was an international or national organisation the commitment would be greater of course.

Don't get me wrong - I think this is wonderful for Eugenie - but don't let's get carried away and think this means that she will be working on the gravy train rather than actually having to work for a living.

Princess Eugenie launches £15m charity bid for world-class hospital that saved her from crippling spinal condition
Quote:
Princess Eugenie has paid tribute to the surgeons at a world-class hospital who saved her from a crippling condition while pledging to help them raise £15million. The young royal, 22, who is embarking on her new role as patron of the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, spoke movingly about a successful operation to treat her scoliosis at the hospital when she was 12.Speaking at the launched the RNOH Redevelopment Appeal, she said: ‘I am living proof that the hospital can and does transform lives. Without the care I received at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital I wouldn’t look the way I do now; my back would be hunched over.’

The Daily Mail has it a bit wrong. Prince Andrew is Patron of the hospital, Eugenie is Patron of the Redevelopment Appeal.

As her father is patron of the hospital, and since she was treated by the hospital, it seems a good fit for her to be patron of this fund raising effort. Certainly wiser to have her already leading a fund raising effort for a charity (not involving her mother's causes) prior to university graduation, and hopefully some work experience in place early on, rather than the flailing about we've seen with Beatrice. I don't know whether the wedding distracted BP, or there was an internal difference of opinion w/in the firm about Beatrice's role, or Sarah's antics caused plans to change, or Beatrice herself was a bit confused, but whatever it was, Beatrice's year following college transition to adulthood was a disaster, pr wise, IMO. Let's hope Eugenie's transition is smoother.

Remember that the unemployment rate in the UK is over 8% and for people in Beatrice and Eugenie's age range about 20% so it isn't a surprise that Beatrice has taken so long to publicly appear to be doing some work experience (not a job but unpaid work for a period of time).

Interesting, I didn't know Eugenie had scoliosis. She looks like her mother, Andrew and the Queen Mother. She sounds like her mother.

I think that she reminds me of the young Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon. Its the shape of the face.
