Today is Princess Eugenie of York's 24th birthday. Unlike her high-profile elder sister, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie enjoys less publicity. She is the younger daughter of Prince Andrew, Duke of York, second son of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, and of Sarah, Duchess of York. The Princess was born in 1990 and was christened Eugenie Victoria Helena.

The Princess has been taking limited public roles to give way to her university studies, although she usually present in various ceremonial and family events. She entered Newcastle University in 2009, where she studied Combined Honours BA, completing her studies in 2012. In 2013, together with Princess Beatrice, she embarked on a tour in Germany, where she had the chance to represent her grandmother The Queen  at the reopening of the former Hanoverian royal palace, the Schloss Herrenhausen.
