Princess Eugenie is the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II and tenth in line to the British throne. On 12 October 2018, she married in a ceremony which took place at Windsor Castle in front of many members of the Royal Family. Like most of the Queen’s grandchildren, Eugenie was given Her Royal Highness status when she was born and was has the title of Princess. However, nearly nine months after her wedding her title changed, does she still have HRH status?
Princess Eugenie is the daughter of Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew, both 59, and the sister of Princess Beatrice, 30.
When she was born, the royal was given the title of Princess, as she was the daughter of the Queen’s son.
Because of a letters patent issued in 1917, this title was automatically applied to her, as it would for any child of the Monarch’s son.
After seven years of dating, the royal tied the knot with Jack Brooksbank, a wine merchant and brand ambassador who does not have a title.
He was not given royal status when he married into the family as it is only the Queen’s grandchildren who are able to get royal dukedom.
Jack could only be granted this if the Queen decided to do this, but it was actually Eugenie’s title that changed after her wedding.
The royal used to be known as Princess Eugenie of York, but just last month this officially changed.
The Court Circular, which records the details of engagements undertaken by the royals, changed and referred to her as Princess Eugenie, Mrs Jack Brooksbank.
Although she had only been known as the Princess before, Eugenie gained another way to address her.
However, as this name change is in addition to the titles she already has, Eugenie has not lost her HRH status.
When the Princess married, she wore a custom dress designed by the British based designers, Peter Pilot and Christopher De Vos.
It had a thick long-sleeved design and a slightly off-the-shoulder design which may have taken inspiration from Meghan Markle’s wedding dress.
Meghan wore a garment by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy and both royals used the design of their dresses to incorporate sublet messages of things which are important to them.
Since getting married, Princess Eugenie moved out of her shared home with Princess Beatrice and into Kensington Palace with her husband.
They moved into Ivy Cottage in the palace grounds and it is the first home they have had together.
