Through most of their life, Beatrice and Eugenie have often been overshadowed by their cousins, Princes William and Harry, however recently the princesses have come into their own. Back in 2016 royal reporter Catherine Ostler wrote in the Daily Mail that the York sisters felt diminished by the family’s attention toward the Cambridges for some time.
Ms Ostler wrote: “Beatrice and Eugenie have been reduced to walk-on parts in royal family life.
“It particularly hurt when Kate did solo engagements with the queen during the Diamond Jubilee. They felt snubbed.”
It was reported that their father Prince Andrew became so worried about his daughters’ roles being diminished, that he penned a letter to the Queen asking they be given full-time royal duties.
However, that request was later denied and the sisters have strived to forge their own paths.
After Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped down, it seemed that the couple referenced the princesses when they transitioned to non-working royals.
“While there is precedent for other titled members of the royal family to seek employment outside of the institution, for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, a 12-month review period has been put in place,” the statement read
Prince Andrew and Prince Charles have also never been close as brothers over the years.
There have been reports of jealously between the pair and Andrew’s recent misconduct has potentially thrown out the possibility that he will be working for the royal family in the future, royal watchers have claimed.
“I know what an incredibly challenging time, especially for those living in isolation not receiving that face-to-face support which is delivered by the incredible nurses and staff at the hospice.
“Please know that we are with you, every single step of the way. Their helpline is available 24/7, seven days a week.
“Please call them with any questions or queries, and we’re here to support you.
“I’m here to support you. I just want to send you all my love, and at this really challenging time, I’m with you and I support and thank you.” She added.
Her sister Eugenie, father Prince Andrew, and mother Sarah Ferguson continue to isolate at Beatrice’s childhood home of Royal Lodge in Windsor.
Sarah paid tribute to her family on Friday to mark International Family Day, as she posted a never before seen picture of the four of them posing inside their home.
She wrote: “On International Family Day… I am so proud of our united loving family.”
Eugenie has also been involving herself in philanthropic endeavours, as she recently assisted the Salvation Army alongside her husband Jack Brooksbank.
She and Jack have also delivered healthy lunches from Angie’s Little Food Shop to Imperial College, London.
