Why Princess Eugenie remains friends with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

While many members of the royal family have turned their backs on Meghan Markle and Harry since their explosive interview with Oprah Windrey, Princess Eugenie continues to maintain a good relationship with the Sussexes.

Meghan Markle blew out her forty candles on Wednesday, August 4. An opportunity for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Queen Elizabeth II to make a step towards the wife of Prince Harry by wishing her a happy birthday. They were not the only ones of the British royal family to have had a tender thought for her. Indeed, Princess Eugenie also presented her wishes to the mother of Archie and Lilibet. A delicate attention that proves the very close bond maintained between the two young women, and this, despite the recent tensions with the crown. A relationship that they owe in part to Prince Harry.

And for good reason, Prince Harry has always been very close to Eugenie, his first cousin. Aged 36 and 31 years, the two grandchildren of Elizabeth II have several points in common. Indeed, in addition to their family ties, both have a rather difficult relationship with the tabloids. “From an early age, Eugenie had to deal with embarrassing headlines about her father and mother,” explained Nigel Crawthorne, a royal expert, to the Daily Mail. “Harry has also had to deal with many headlines. This connection between them is likely what brought them together,” he added.

Princess Eugenie: always there for Prince Harry

Princess Eugenie is among the few supporters of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in the British monarchy. “Of all the queen’s grandchildren, Harry and Eugenie have one of the most natural and strongest bonds,” royal experts Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand confided in the Sussexes‘ biography Finding Freedom. “Like Harry, Eugenie is loyal, honest and a lot of fun (…) Not only do they trust each other, but people close to them have said that Eugenie is a source of excellent advice,” they continued.
