Princess Eugenie has opened up and shared a tribute to her grandfather, Prince Philip, five days after the news of his passing. In a post on Instagram, the York royal said all of the things she will remember about the Duke of Edinburgh and also promised that they will look after their grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.
The 31-year-old new mother started her message to Philip by saying they miss him. She also said that will be likely touched by the tributes given to him from across the world.
Eugenie then wrote very personal facets of her memories of Philip, including his jokes, his laughs, his skills at cooking, and his spectacular view on life. The York princess then thanked her grandfather for his "dedication and love,", especially for their grandmother.
Princess Eugenie is the youngest daughter of Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, and Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York. In her post, she also shared a photo of herself with her grandfather and her sister, Princess Beatrice.
She recently gave birth to her first child with her husband, Jack Brooksbank, and named the baby August Philip, after her grandfather. Eugenie is the 10th in line to the throne while her son is in the 11th line but she is not a working royal.
Meanwhile, Eugenie has been the only member of the royal family who has personal contact with Prince Harry, following his return to London from California for the funeral. According to reports, the Duke of Sussex has met his cousin's baby since Harry has been spending his quarantine in Frogmore Cottage. Eugenie, Jack and baby August have been residing in this house since the baby's arrival.
In 2020, Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, confirmed that they are delighted to open their home to the Brooksbank family as they start to expand their unit. It's unclear if Eugenie and her husband are paying anything to stay in Frogmore since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have settled the cost of the upkeep of the mansion before they left for the United States.
Princess Eugenie decided to move to Frogmore since it's closer to her parents' house, the Royal Lodge. It's also a lot closer to Windsor Castle, where the queen has been living with her husband since March 2020.
However, sources have reported that Philip did not get the chance to see the baby of Princess Eugenie baby in the flesh because his health was declining since February. The baby was born a week before the Duke of Edinburgh was hospitalized.
