During the Channel 5 documentary ‘Beatrice and Eugenie: Pampered Princesses?’ royal experts Richard Kay, Lizzie Cundy and Ayesha Hazarika discussed Prince Andrew’s role in his youngest daughter’s wedding. Ms Hazarika stated the Duke of York saw the wedding as an opportunity to show his daughters were “up there” with Prince William and Prince Harry. 

Ms Hazarika said: “I think particularly Prince Andrew has always been a bit miffed that they were never made full working members of the Royal Family.

“I think this was his opportunity to really show them off not just to the country but to the world and say my daughters are absolutely up there with William and Harry.”

Ms Cundy added: “Prince Andrew very much wanted to have a big funfair for his daughter.

“It was very difficult because I feel that a lot of the public did not want this.

“They thought it was a waste of taxpayer money for the security.

“They are not senior royals so why should they have the same as Prince William and Prince Harry?”

Mr Kay stated: “A lot of it, of course, revolved around Prince Andrew, whose reputation was sinking fast by this stage.

“It was seen as him being too excessive.”  

During the same Channel 5 documentary a royal commentator stated that Princess Eugenie was “upset” at the fact her wedding had to be delayed due to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s marriage taking priority.

Royal experts Kate Nicholl and Tom Quinn discussed the postponement of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding.

Mr Quinn stated that Princess Eugenie was told the British public would not care about her wedding until after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot.

Ms Nicholl said: “Because of the order of hierarchy, she actually had to wait for Prince Harry to marry Meghan before she could marry Jack even though they had been engaged for a long time.”

Mr Quinn outlined the upset this delay caused Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank.

“There was a certain amount of upset about that.

“Upset about being told you have got to wait as the British public will not be remotely enthusiastic about this wedding.”
