It appears Princess Eugenie is following in the footsteps of Prince William and Kate Middleton, who are preparing to return to their Kensington Palace apartment after months of self-isolation.
Here’s what you need to know: Princess Eugenie and her husband, Jack Brooksbank, were self-quarantining with her parents, Prince Andrew and Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson, at the Royal Lodge in Windsor. According to Hello! magazine, the royal couple recently left the family’s residence and permanently moved back to the city.
Since Princess Eugenie and Brooksbank were spotted in London, it is believed that they’re now staying at Ivy Cottage, which is located on the grounds of Kensington Palace. (Eugenie used to share the abode with her sister, Princess Beatrice, but she moved out after the 2018 wedding.)
We’re not totally surprised by the news, since the U.K.’s social distancing restrictions are beginning to lift. Princess Eugenie arrived at the Royal Lodge earlier this year, shortly after the lockdown began.
Ferguson discussed the surprise visit during a podcast interview and revealed that she’s enjoying the unexpected quality time with her daughter and new son-in-law.
“During this lockdown period, I’ve really loved spending more time with Eugenie and Jack. My daughter got married to Jack in, oh goodness, was it last October? No, it was October before, heavens! And so, of course once she’s gone to get married, they live away,” she said. “So, I haven’t seen her so much and so now it’s been a total joy to spend real quality time with her.”
Well, it was fun while it lasted.
