Another day, another young royal breaking from tradition — and we're so here for it. Princess Eugenie just became the first young member of the British royal family to create her own personal Instagram account, according to Mashable. The cousin of Princes William and Harry launched the page on International Women's Day and is already sharing never-before-seen moments from her life growing up as a princess. "I can think of no better day than today, International Women’s Day, to launch my personal Instagram.
I hope to use this platform to share the causes, passions and people close to my heart," she wrote in her first post.
The royal family does already have an official Twitter and Instagram page as well as the Kensington Palace's account, which updates the public about Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Harry, and their Royal Foundation. Meanwhile, Eugenie's mother, Sarah Ferguson, duchess of York, has her own Twitter and Instagram pages as well, but Eugenie's marks the first time a young royal has been able to provide the public with private-life updates.
Since her first post, Princess Eugenie has shared some throwback pictures with her mom in honor of Mother's Day in the United Kingdom. "Happy Mother's Day to my legend of a mother. @sarahferguson15 And to all mothers on this special day! #mothersday," she captioned a picture of her mother holding her and sister, Princess Beatrice, as toddlers. Eugenie followed it up with an appropriate picture of herself as a toddler yawning while cuddling her mother, with the caption, "Good Morning Monday!"
Besides some great #TBT content, Princess Eugenie also shared her cute engagement photo with longtime boyfriend Jack Brooksbank. "Think Jack said something funny!," she captioned a candid photo of the two laughing while showing off her gorgeous padparadscha sapphire ring. Queen Elizabeth II's granddaughter will be married on Friday, October 12, 2018, in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. If that location sounds familiar to you, it's because Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be married in the same location on May 19 of this year.
Perhaps their cousin can inspire Prince Harry and Prince William to create their own social media pages — and Markle to reactivate her account — before the first royal wedding of the year.
