Eugenie sees the last free years of her life in her grasp. She knows when she's done with Uni she must get a real job or start doing the royal rounds, for her, now is the time to do as she pleases. For someone that age to be able to contain her urges, especially when the limits set upon her are so weak because of her privileged background, is quite hard.
I believe that, while the Yorks have been spoken to about their dumber actions (frolicking naked in school, leaving the keys in the ignition of a car) I think the older royals acknowledge that they had their fun as well only that we didn't see it. Someone has already pointed out that they hung with "their kind" and thus any indiscretions were kept within their tight circles. I think this is why there hasn't been a tightening of the bands on the girls, everyone sows their wild oats and they're being given their opportunity, stupid decisions and all.
