Princess Eugenie of York Current Events 6: April 2010-

Don't think her application said Princess Eugenie of York from Sandringham either.

There's no way that would fit into the usual name spaces on the application! :)

The article even says that to get into the course Eugenie did she needed to pass her A-levels with AAB which is exactly what she did get.

The younger royals have all gone to universities based on results and not names - unlike both Charles and Edward, neither of whom had the passes to go to Cambridge.

Even reading the professor's remarks (based on hearsay from an 'Italian' colleague) it seems she didn't have the grades for one major, but did have them for another and was admitted in the major she had the grades for - sounds like a non story to me.

This isn't going to be good. Firstly, important to note the university lecturer was speaking at a conference for the anti-monarchy group "Republic" so I don't think even the Daily Fail can say he is objective.

More interesting to me is how the Yorks manage this, Sarah and Andrew have not been shy in making formal complaints to the Independent Press Standards Organisation. It could well though open a can of worms.
I think this is a terribly hurtful story to Princess Eugenie. What purpose does it serve other than to hurt her, personally, and to trash the monarchy.

That university lecturer has torched his own career - it's private information, whether accurate or not, that never should have been publicized. That he was speaking to Republic says it all.

And she graduated with a 2:1, so she hardly slacked once she was there. What an awful story for a Princess who has always appeared kind and good natured.

It seems like that the * university lecturer* has an axe to grind against the royal family for what would be the reason to do this if not that? Or could this be in retaliation to the fact that PE had her picture taken at that birthday party and some now want to get the republicans out in full force for some reason to make trouble for the royal family.

Yes it is a shame she is being attacked like this for she has done no harm to anyone and has always been a gracious young lady when out anywhere.

Actually it couldn't have worked out worse for the lecturer. The article actually states that the universities required grades for 2018 for a course that Eugenie did was AAB. Those are the grades she got 9 years ago.

Having gone through the education system two years after Eugenie I know that grades have been raised over that time, so Eugenie was well within the academic capability of getting in. The only reason she might have been rejected were because of the too many scenario, which I think is unlikely considering her achievable grades. Obviously universities pick the best students to get them the best marks.

He's clearly speaking to his target audience who are loving what he's saying, why would he say anything different to an anti monarchist group, than anti monarchist things?

Eugenie's worked hard for what she does and no university lecturer should taint that with foul rumours.

It's disgusting an anti monarchist would to sink to such lows.

Heresay. Academic requirements from now not then. Ignoring she did have the grades required now. Story had more holes then a sieve. And in what world does a lecturer have the right to talk on such.

You may hate the Yorks but Eugenie us a bad target. She graduated from the program, and has worked in her field. She holds a full time job where she got a promotion. Balanced with a handful of patronages and attending royal functions.
