Princess Eugenie row: How Prince Andrew’s daughter could be FORCED to move out of home | Royal | News


Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank has lived together in the grounds of Kensington Palace since their wedding in October 2018. However, reports now claim the couple could have to move out of the lavish home.

Following Prince Andrew’s resignation, questions have been raised about how his daughters will continue to be funded as their father has long-subsidised their lifestyles.

The Duke of York withdrew from his official duties following a scandalous interview with BBC Newsnight, where he was questioned on his ties with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

Speculation has especially mounted on whether Eugenie and her older sister Princess Beatrice will continue to live in their current residence.

Beatrice lives in an apartment at St James’s Palace, believed to be at the expense of taxpayers, Mail Online reports.

But Eugenie and her husband live in Ivy Cottage, a three-bedroom house in the grounds of Kensington Palace.

Eugenie’s home is being rented to her and Mr Brooksbank at a “commercial rate”, said to be around £182,000 a year.

The cost has always been assumed to have been covered by Prince Andrew.

On the Duke of York’s official website, under frequently asked questions, it states the Prince “supports both of his daughters financially from his private income”.

“Even though you may feel that they made such a mess of their own lives, they have been loving co-parents.

“The Queen will continue to invite Beatrice and Eugenie to Balmoral over the summer and she sees quite a lot of them at Windsor.

“They, in turn, are fond of ‘Super Gran’, as they call her.

“The feeling is that everyone wants to protect them from this hurt and from further hurt, rather than dance on their father’s ‘grave’.”

A royal aide has also confirmed that Beatrice and Eugenie will continue with a limited number of royal duties as before.

Buckingham Palace: “The Princesses do undertake a small number of royal engagements each year, as and when asked, and that will continue.”
