Such a breathtaking photo - Eugenie was a gorgeous bride and she and Jack are one of my favourite royal newlyweds. They seem like a lovely and down to earth, approachable couple and Eugenie always seems very interested in the engagements she does and doesn't do them just because she feels the need to (on one of her previous engagements she posted a photo of the Queen Mother at the same location which I thought was a really nice touch).

If you thought that was breathtaking, then you should really love this one. Also, they really don't want to show us how those Ears of Wheat brooches looked in her hair Every angle we've seen it's just slightly out of frame.

She looks pretty. The man in picture 2 has that “I’m sitting next to a princess!!” look.

I am really impressed by many things Eugenie has done lately - her extensive involvement in causes like this and the RNOH, along with balancing her job and her new marriage. She's definitely an asset to the royal family. :)

I agree! Her complexion is flawless.

Agreed She has done a wonderful job of literally being a working royal.

No she isn't a 'working royal' as in paid to be a full time royal. But she does more, she works a full time job and she balances that with a number of patronages. Her and Bea have around as many as Kate (think Bea has more). They both have embraced ones they have a real passion for. And it shows.

Eugenie is indeed an asset to the family. Even if not recognized for it.

Sad thing is why is it unofficial? It costs nothing for them to recognize her work in the CC. She already does it on her own dime.

In reality it would benefit them. People over look Eugenie and Bea's work as they get no recognition. Makes it easy to paint them as the 'party girls', well Eugenie less now married. And the charities they support get less attention. It would certainly benefit the royal family and the charities, to simply include the girls in the CC. And would cost nothing.

The Queen must have her reasons we are not privy to and this will have almost certainly been discussed with her advisors at some point and possibly Charles as he will be the one they will be working under mostly.

It feels like a reaction to Sarah, rather than anything to do with the lovely young women Beatrice and Eugenie have become.

Do we know that Eugenie does it on her own dime, ie she paid for her trip to Austria? I believe that usually in these cases the charity represented pays for the trip. If she were appearing officially on behalf of the RF then the RF would pay for her trip and the UK would pay for her security while appearing for the RF as they do with the Queen’s cousins. My suspicion is that the budget simply isn’t large enough to subsidize the minor Royal’s charitable activities. The Queen already supports herself & Phillip’s activities, Anne’s and occasionally Tim’s appearances, Andrew’s, Edward and Sophie’s and to a lesser degree her cousins. Eugenie certainly donates her time and by choosing to patronize certain charities as a private individual she is free to pick those which interest her. I think it reflects very positively on her and would not be surprised to see her called upon occasionally to fill in officially during her Uncle’s reign (or her cousin’s) as the Queen’s cousins age out of that role. I’m hoping we’ll see her at a state dinner in a tiara before long

I honestly don't think it has anything to do with Sarah or Andrew at all. When we stop to think about it, out of all the grandchildren that HM has, its only William and Harry that have taken on full time work for the "Firm". Anne's children all have their own specific interests. Andrew's children have their own interests and I imagine as Edward's children enter adulthood, they'll have their own too.

The more I think about it, the more I'm inclined to believe that what we're actually seeing is the "Firm's" plan of a slimmed down monarchy and the number of full time, working royals. Perhaps it hasn't always been intentional but it seems to be the way things are going.

It is more like Princess Margriet or Prince Constantijn in the Netherlands: they have never ever received any cent of apanage but do royal engagements so now and then while pursuing their own life. (Of course anything in connection to their occasional royal function is reimbursed by the King and they are provided with all assistance, logistics, transportation, security and facilities).

I think that arrangement is more or less the same with Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, I believe they receive no income either from the Civil List. I can see Princess Beatrice or Princess Eugenie going that route as well.

I think the saddest part of the work that Eugenie does is that she never gets kudos for what she does by the public and the press. Eugenie does what she does as far as charitable work because she *wants* to rather than because she's expected to do it or because she's receiving compensation for doing it. The same with Beatrice.

I would imagine that perhaps, as mentioned earlier, that part of her expenses would be paid for by the charity itself but basically the York princesses do what they do because they're giving back rather than doing what is expected of them.

To me that is the correct form of charity: it comes out of the heart. Not because one is a Princess and supposed to have charities indeed. Good for the York princesses, that it are their own choices.

I think the original poster would entirely agree that the princess's charitable work without consideration of recognition or expectations is to her credit. Whether those who refuse to recognize that she carries out such work are acting correctly is a question of its own with different considerations.

I agree with you, Duc. Perhaps in the future if there is a slimmed down monarchy where its only the main line working for the "Firm" and the other royals are perceived as doing what they do out of the goodness of their hearts, it would have quite a positive effect all around.

Doing it this way, I think, shows that the members of the royal family's intent is to give back to the people even more than working for the "Firm" and appearing in the Court Circular.

Eugenie and Jack really have the best of both worlds. They're private citizens and can manage their lives as they choose but also have the perk of easy access to the world's stage when it comes to charities and organizations and issues they wish to call attention to.

Considering the way some of the royal family are being treated in the press these days, perhaps its a blessing that they're not picking apart at the seams the work the York princesses do. There's just too much negativity floating around for my taste lately.
