Princess Eugenie is on form as one of the Brit’s most down-to-earth royals, following Will’s lead by choosing to bunk down in the student dorms while she studies at Newcastle University.
The grass is always greener, isn’t it….I mean, if I had the choice of sumptuously-appointed private apartment versus your basic, communal uni digs, I know which I’d go for, and it wouldn’t be the one where I get to enjoy the night-time snorings and other goings-on of my fellow students through paper-thin walls.
But then, to her credit, mixing it with the ordinary punters seems to be Eugenie’s thing, as demonstrated by her visit to Australia earlier this year. Go, Eugenie, we love you!
Besides offering a good degree course, Eugenie chose apparently chose Newcastle Uni for its fun-ness. But I do wonder how much fun and mischief can be had with (count ‘em!) THREE bodyguards running around after one at all times. Romantic dinner for two….plus three burly, suited, glaring men eating next to you. Romantic boogie for two on the local disco floor….plus three burly, suited, glaring men boogie-ing next to you….Geez, makes you wonder how a royal romance gets going at all…
Speaking of royal romance, another Nordic nuptial occasion has been announced. Princess Madeleine has confirmed her engagement to lawyer Jonas Bergstrom a mere few weeks after her older sister, Victoria, revealed her own marriage plans.
But what really breaks my heart? He says, “I fell for her beautiful blue eyes..”. Swoon! She says, “He’s the nicest person in the world, a wonderful friend”. Sigh! …Where do I get me one of those……
Best wishes to both the girls!
