But what tells you she allowed the friend to do that? Maybe the friend just did it and Eugenie chose not to make a stink out of it. These are two female friends interacting with each other in a very touchy-feely way in an informal setting. Some are trying to make it as if they are offering a free porn show to punters.

Is it dignified? No.
Should she be more careful? Yes, of course.
Are the pictures embarrassing, for a young girl and even more for a young Princess? Definitely, especially when tabloids write disgusting headlines to accompany the pictures.
Should she be bashed for that? No, imo.

You also seem offended by the hugging and piggy backing. Really??
Well it's obviously a generational gap as I can't see how that would be deemed indecent.

And there are definitely double standards going on there. When a certain royal gf who is very much loved in here is pictured in embarrassing positions, people jump on the 'perverted' paps and the 'desperate' newspaper editors to defend her.
Oddly enough, no-one seem to have any problems with these pictures being shopped around or with a 19 year-old girl being hunted down on her gap year and having sleazy headlines written about her. Everybody is too busy gleefully trashing the hated Sarah's progeny to stop and question the ethical aspect of this tasteless exploitation.

Or are you referring to his partying lifestyle?

Please note that the Current Events thread for Princess Eugenie of York is now reopened. Several posts have been deleted as mean-spirited and plain just off topic.

In order to have a balanced and civil discussion regarding the Current Events of Princess Eugenie and her sister, Princess Beatrice, please note the following rules:

1) Beatrice and Eugenie are not their parents. Therefore any posts that make any reference to them being their mother's or father's daughter (in reference to their alleged misdeeds and/or bad behavior) will be edited or deleted.
2) All posts regarding taxpayer money as it relates to security for the York princesses (as well as the British Royal family), can be found here Royal Security
3) All speculative posts will be deleted without notice. For example, it is alleged that Princess Eugenie ran around naked while at school. Since there is no proof that this actual event happened, there is no need to talk about it. Unless someone can provide proof that it is Prince Andrew who is determined for his daughters to remain HRH's, there is no need to talk about it.

Also, please remember the following TRF rule:
  • Insulting comments about other posters and royals are not permitted. Criticism is acceptable; insults and flames are not. We expect our members to treat each other with respect.
I would also like to remind everyone of the following announcement: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ism-20674.html .


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact any of the British moderators and/or TRF administrators.

Thank you.

Rather than have the same arguments rehashed all over again now that the thread has been re-opened, we will move on from Eugenie's holiday in Thailand.

thanks.

Yahoo news, thieves tried to take the purse of Princess Eugenie´s friend..

Mail Online, Princess Eugenie mugged. The story becomes more sensational by the second almost.

The muggers would have no idea who she was so it could happen to anyone walking round with a group of friends late at night in Cambodia......

Next we are going to hear that it was nearly an assassination attempt and that thanks to the body guards who were pelted with stones when they intervened (rocks in some reports) the purse seems to have been saved and so, of course the security is money well spent. If this princess would stop her gadding about on her gap year to far away (from her home) places life would be much easier for everyone and I don´t see how enjoying herself in bars for a whole year is exactly improving her mind.

I didn't know that gap years were supposed to improve one's mind.

I was under the impression they were to allow the young person concerned experience things they couldn't do at home i.e. see other countries and she is certainly doing that - just being in countries like Cambodia would open her eyes (and mind) to the different cultures and problems experienced elsewhere in the world.

And the original story
PRINCESS Eugenie and her pals have been mugged on their gap-year travels, The Sun can reveal.


Princess Eugenie's bodyguards are pelted with rocks | The Sun |News|Royals
-------------------
I read that it was NOT a direct attack on Eugenie (a direct threat to a royal), it was not Eugenie that was mugged, it was an attempted mugging of one of her friends and IF it had been a direct threat, two officers would have been unable to do anything about it!

Well I hope she is experiencing the problems of looking after a young teenage princess on her wanderings.

What problems is she experiencing I wonder, I hear that all these young people intent on partying and drinking in someone else´s country cause great problems for the authorities of these gap year destinations.

Isn´t experiencing different cultures and problems supposed to improve(or broaden )
one´s mind, I suppose it depends a lot on the mind of the person and if the person is just out to have a good time or not.

What a relief for me as taxpayer to know that paying for Eugenie's bodyguards acutally makes sense because I was just given the proof that there are evil people out there who could harm a HRH on holiday a gap year. Tourists being mugged, what's new? It happens every day, not only in Cambodia but also in Britain.

It was soooo predictable such a story would come up after all the controversy. Honi soit qui mal y pense It almost looks as if The Duke of York had hired Max Clifford.

^I agree.
I can't see how that incident justifies anything.
Her friend was mugged, not Eugenie, and the only reason why they noticed them in the first place was probably because they were White.

Am I the only one who doesn't know why Eugenie is in Cambodia? I mean, I know it's called a 'gap-year' but a gap from what exactly? While we're all in the UK struggling to make ends meet, this one's swanning around the world like a lady of leisure. When is she actually going to DO something? It's getting very irritating to see the York girls following in their father's footsteps and continuing his legacy of being workshy.

^Gap years are a well established British tradition and the economic collapse hasn't stopped thousands of teenagers to go and enjoy one.
I assume she'll do something once she's ended her education, like most young Britons.

Most young Britons face a life of actually working, a gap year is nessecary. For Eugenie, most of her adult life will be one long gap year.

A gap year isn't that necessary. It may be a tradition but it's a fairly new one. Gap years didn't happen back when I was at school and university; the system was set up so that people went to university in the autumn after leaving school in the summer.

Here in Portugal most of the students want to get their student days over as quickly as possible and wouldn´t consider delaying their careers by a year. I have known more than one student who has taken a gap year (British) and have just not gone on from there, they just couldn´t face going back to studying. This all depends on the student but I really think the kind of gap year that Princess Eugenie is having seems to be a huge waste of time and money and not helping her image as a British royal at all.

Full right

Nevertheless, this is the main difference between "normal" people and rich people....
The life Eugenie is having is the life most of rich young persons are having. The only difference, which is the irritating point, is that for Eugenie, contributors are paying.

While I think it's rather stupid of the tabloids to blow up the story as if Eugenie was the one mugged, on the other hand, I don't understand why the protection officers would have been involved in the struggle for the friend's bag either. Wasn't Eugenie's safety their only concern? If Eugenie wasn't the target and not in danger, they should have just let it be instead of drawing further attention to the group. It would have been worse of one of the POs were injured by the rock throwing, and the muggers could have wanted further revenge. If the girls want to experience as if they were any other normal backpackers, then getting mugged should be part of their "education".
