IMO, since the article relating Eugenie's wedding plans to potential renovations at KP is from the Daily Fail, there's probably little truth about it. They always seem to want to make a negative stories about the Yorks and since there's been no official info about an engagement for Eugenie, this story is all that the Fail could slap together.

Yep, I think this is the reason. They are determined to make stories around Eugenie's engagement, even when it has been denied. Eventually they'll be right, I guess...

It's not from the Daily Mail. It's all from Camilla Tominey from the Express. The Daily Mail article actually mentions the Sunday Express article

My interpretation of the article is that the sticking point is with doing the required maintenace sooner than currently scheduled. Apparently blocks of rooms/areas are all worked on at the same time for cost savings and to do a one off just for Ivy Cottage would cost more than following the schedule. If that be the case, then I can see the rationale of expecting the person asking for a special accomodation to foot the bill for it - if, indeed there is any truth to the story.
I do think being on KP grounds is a nice fit for Eugenie as she's carved out a career based in London and is close w/ Harry, so I hope things are sorted out for her.

I see what you're saying, but the reality is that when you're dealing with heritage buildings (really, any buildings, but restoration of heritage buildings is so pricey once the damage occurs), you need to deal with damp/mould when it happens, not on a schedule. When I was renting, I'd have been beyond pissed if a landlord told me they wouldn't deal with a time-sensitive issue because it wasn't on their schedule.

Basically, the people who look after the occupied royal palaces need to deal with it because that's what you do when you have damp in a historic building. You look after it before it becomes damage to the fabric of the building and the cost to fix it blows up exponentially. This really has nothing to do with Eugene. They're being terrible property managers.

From the Daily Express article: the caption under the photo of Jack with Eugenie, who is wearing a white dress, actually says that they announced their engagement last year! Princess Eugenie's wedding plans delayed due to cost of renovating home | Royal | News | Express.co.uk

Look at the author, Camilla Tominey. The so called reporter who broke the news last fall

Camilla tried to claim Sarah going to buckingham palace was to talk wedding plans with the queen. Ever since she has been coming up with excuses to explain why the phantom engagement hasn't been announced. First was because she didn't want to upset a newly single Beatrice. Now it is renovations.

And the daily fail is so anxious not to be left in the dust, they keep reprinting her lies. And they both look like idiots.

Basically they are sure a proposal will come eventually. So they make up excuses why announcement is delayed. So when it is announced Camilla can say see I was right all along, and was first to say it. And if like Beatrice, Eugenie breaks up, they will spin it. They don't call it a break up but a broken engagement, and claim all the delays in the wedding caused stress

I don't understand why they haven't announced their engagement yet.
After all, they have been together seven years now! They are hardly rushing into marriage.

(I hope they don't end like Beatrice and Dave Clark, splitting up after a decade together).

Myself I don't understand these long periods of 'dating' without engagements or marriage. If you don't know enough by the first year or two about the person and whether or not that this is the person you want to spend your life with not sure what another 5 or more years will determine.

I think it's a hard process for children who's parents divorced. No child wants to repeat the same mistakes of their parents marriage. It's about being careful and jumping the broom when you feel totally ready for it. Look how much practice the Cambridge's put in before they made it official.

Well, you know what Jane Austen said about that!

Age plays a huge role. Yes seven years, but she us twenty six. The days when marrying young was the norm have passed. Should she have married when she was in university? Some people simply don't see any Rush.

Has it occurred to you that maybe they are waiting to see how living in the same country as adults for more than a year affects them? The first three plus years of their relationship she was a college student. Yes technically an adult but in a very different mind set. Not to mention the over a year she spent in New York.

I laugh the sane people who think Harry should not be rushed want to rush Eugenie. And yes, at her age, and stage in life, it is. She is settling back in London, into a new job, into more patrinages, into adult life. That is a lot of changes for any one. Taking on marriage and kids is just another change and pressure to take on.

No need for her to feel pressure to wed to show they are committed. Many people now a days don't get married till ready for kids. The days where a woman has to live at home till she marries, and defines her life by a husband and kids thankfully are over.

It's very nice, but since they announced her as Royal Patron, does this mean she is an official patron (representling the monarchy)?

Or is it a private patronage?

Not sure about how these things work!
