Poor Princess Eugenie.
Sure, she’s got an adoring, perpetually ruddy-faced husband who looks like he’s head-over-heels in love with her (and just happens to be a tequila ambassador – handy) and an adorable new baby, having introduced son August to the world last month.
But jeepers, the 31-year-old just can’t quite catch a break.
This week she celebrated her birthday, a fact Buckingham Palace marked by sharing social media posts that went so far as to include not one but two emojis, the Windsor-equivalent to shouting with glee from the rooftops. However, whatever brief moment basking in the public sun Eugenie might have had, was dashed given the very same day (March 23) TheWall Street Journal revealed her cousin Prince Harry had gone out and done the previously unthinkable: He’d gotten a job.

We could notch this all up to an unfortunate coincidence if not for the fact this is not the first time that a Sussex announcement has inadvertently stolen some of the poor old Eugenie’s thunder.
It has been reported that Harry and his wife Meghan the Duchess of Sussex told his family that she was expecting their first child at Eugenie’s 2018 wedding. The move, “did not go down particularly well with Eugenie, who a source said told friends she felt the couple should have waited to share the news,” according to last year’s biography of the Sussexes, Finding Freedom. Quite.
