^ITA; she is a firm fixture on the London social scene and is apparently able to get a spot at a trendy NY gallery.

It is kind of hilarious that the British press always makes these articles about Willy and Waity. Like these two are the major power brokers in the British RF.
I guess the journalists must work overtime to give the public the idea that Willy is still 'in'.  In reality I doubt the prince has seen his cousin for months (not since the Trooping of the Colour). And considering Willy's absence from Balmoral, I get the feeling that the RF prefers to see Willy's back.

I think it's great she's working and has a position in NYC. It will help her grow,building on her education and increase her awareness of the world ,socially. IMO

It's no different than many of the connected people in the US who get their daughter's or sons positions at companies. When I interned at ABC in NY, there were several people who were daughter's of some White House government official who were given the internship by way of their Washington connected father making a phonecall to someone. It's done all the time, especially in NY. The funny part was that at the end of the internship, many of the people who were  just given the internship through connections and didn't have to go through a series of interviews to earn it, simply ended up not completing it, because they wanted to go to the Hamptons or Martha's Vineyard for the weekend with friends, when we may have been called into the Network with the news-crew to go film something around the city.

A connection can open doors, but it can't do the work for you and make you a good worker. Eugenie will still have to work once inside. Those NY internships are cut throat and there are people watching who will not be kind if they feel Eugenie is just marking time. I think she will do a good job though. She seems like she wants it. Good luck to her.

Actually, I know plenty! And I am one of them. I started working for a company where neither of my parents knew anyone.

^ Same here COH, I agree with you. Most people I know have to work very hard to get to where they are with little or no connection. We are only dressing it up really, the real name for it is NEPOTISM. It ok really but lets no pretend its anything else. I am glad for her though, at least she will have an experience of what the wider world is like. I hope she settles in the states though so she came live her life the way she wants

I am sure I read, in the original reports from the DM, that she will only be in NY for a short while until the company opens up new offices in London and she will then return to London to work for them.

I'm glad you're being open and frank about it, not dressing it up like it's the result of hard work. Nothing wrong with help, but I resent the hypocrisy that surrounds royals, as if everyone is afraid of sounding like a bad person just because they see the situation for what it is. As for the wider world, the only difference will be very little since she will still be surrounded by people with titles, money, important connections, and various other things that she is used to in London.

Since when has she ever lived otherwise?

Her life as a princess has been largely responsibility free and she will never really have to work at all in anything practical. She hasn't had to make appearances if she's not inclined and her schooling was light (after her grandmother pulled some strings) and she hasn't had half the burdens that all her age have outside her circle of privilege.

I havent' seen her live any aspect of her life in any way that she hasn't wanted to. She parties all the time, but suddenly gets a position at a trendy NY gallery

She hasn't had to make appearances if she's not inclined and her schooling was light (after her grandmother pulled some strings) and she hasn't had half the burdens that all her age have outside her circle of privilege.



What do you mean 'her schooling was light'?

She attended Marlborough College and earned the best set of results at A level of any of the Queen's grandchildren. She then attended a solid uni and got a good degree - not outstanding or brilliant but solid. She initially intended on doing three subjects but then reduced that workload to two - William and Kate did one each at St Andrews and Bea also did two at Goldsmiths - remembering that English/British unis specialise in one subject from the very beginning unlike unis in most other countries. She lived in college with other students at 80 odd pounds a week or whatever the cost was - not expensive but not the cheapest available on campus either.

Her A levels: As in Art and English Literature and B in History of Art
Beatrice: A in Drama and Bs in History and Film Studies
Harry: B in Art and D in Geography
William: A in Geography, B in History of Art and C in Biology

It is clear that Eugenie is the brightest of the Queen's royal grandchildren - Peter and Zara must have done ok as they both also achieved 2.1s at their respective unis, as did William, Beatrice and Eugenie, and Kate.

People her age have done as much without her resources and nepotism; lets not deny that her title is three and a half fourths of why she has what she has. Until recently I wasn't aware she was doing much of anything and really, lets not deny that if she weren't titled, we would think of her as any better than a trustafarian. Cressida is bashed because she isn't doing things we think are substantial enough and for some reason, Eugenie gets away with it. Cressida has as good an education and isn't working 24/7, but for some reason she doesn't get a pass while Eugenie does? I find that hypocritical and annoying. It's not like Eugenie is out there saving whales or curing various diseases, something some must think Cressida must do to prove herself worthy just to be Harry's girlfriend, much less his wife. Eugenie is no more talented than others her age, just better connected. Being better educated than the rest of the royal grandchildren is for me, something that isn't much to brag about. For some time I wondered if she was even in school.

Like the rest of her family she left school at 18 and then, like many other rich kids, took a gap year (as did all her cousins). Again like the rest of her family, except Harry who didn't get the grades, she then went to university. As she is now 22 and a half she has spent the last 4.5 years since leaving school on a gap year, at university or doing internships.

At the same ages William had a gap year, 4 years at university and then some internship before entering the army.

Harry had an 18 month gap year before entering the army.

Beatrice had a gap year and then 3 years at university, a year of doing internships and further study doing her finance course and then worked for about 8 months and is now looking for another job.

Cressida is older than Eugenie being 24 to Eugenie's 22 and so would be expected to have done a little more than Eugenie.

I think it should also be noted that the under 25 age bracket in the UK is facing a very high unemployment rate at the moment so it is no surprise that these girls are struggling to find jobs without connections.

I wonder if Eugenie secured Cressida as Harry's wife and that is why she is leaving for NY now.

I just wish she and others would be more open about how lucky she is and thankful she has the advantages she does. No more 'just like everyone else' garbage. It gets old.

^ When has she claimed to be like everyone else? They may normal within their own social set but I doubt, "regular soldiers" William and Harry notwithstanding, that the royal grandchildren ever claim to be like the average person.  Is she supposed to go out there and say it? The Yorks already get bashed because of their parents, what will the backlash be like when they go, "Yeah, totally go this job cause I'm royal."

David Lindley however is not her uncle.  He is a cousin to her father, the Duke of York.  His mother was Princess Margaret, sister to the Queen.
