Here are some photos from Tuesday’s Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition event in London. In previous years, this is a pretty hot ticket, and some big-name celebrities come out for it. Maybe all of the photos haven’t come in, but it really doesn’t feel like they got a good turnout this year. But they did get one royal: Princess Eugenie! I had to do a double-take as well, I thought for sure that Princess Beatrice has been misidentified as her younger sister (which happens). But no, this is Eugenie. And her hair is a lot lighter and redder, right? It’s not just a trick of the light? Eugenie used to be the brunette/auburn sister and Beatrice was the ginger sister. But Eugenie seems to have lightened her hair, and I think she did it recently. What are your thoughts? I think she looks nice.
Eugenie was included in the Daily Mail’s gossipy piece a few weeks ago about how the York princesses don’t get along with Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge these days. I think Eugenie is probably feeling it more this year because she’s returned to London full-time after leaving her job at a New York-based auction house last year. Eugenie currently works as the associate director of art gallery Hauser & Wirth in London, although there’s gossip that she’s really not pulling in a full work week. According to Page Six, she took eight vacations in her first year of work at the gallery.
Here are some more photos from the Royal Academy of Arts event. Eugenie’s close friend Cressida Bonas was there, as was Daisy Lowe. I’m pretty sure Daisy’s dress is Roland Mouret. Also: Cressida’s shoes!!!
