Princess Eugenie Tired Of Being Second Tier Royal: No One Can Pronounce Her Name
Princess Eugenie is frustrated once again with her status as a second tier royal. This time around she is complaining that no one can pronounce her name correctly. Even though she’s a member of the British royal family, people often have a hard time saying her first name the right way.
Apparently, a lot of people have been pronouncing Princess Eugenie’s first name with a hard ‘g.’ This is wrong. According to the young royal, her name is pronounced with a soft ‘g’. Eugenie recently told Britain’s The Sun in an interview, “Whenever we used to meet foreign people who were struggling with it, my mum and I would help them by saying, ‘It’s like Use Your Knees. I am now used to every pronunciation.’”
For years, many people have been introducing Eugenie and saying her name wrong at her royal engagements and her public appearances. Princess Eugenie says her name comes from Queen Victoria’s granddaughter, Victoria Eugenie of Battenburg. She is the daughter of her youngest, Princess Beatrice. One century later and people still can’t get the name right.
Of course, for Princess Eugenie, this is troubling. This isn’t helping her become the top tier royal that she wants to be. After all, no one ever has a problem pronouncing Kate Middleton’s name. If that weren’t enough, people also don’t have a problem saying Pippa Middleton’s name right either.
But for Princess Eugenie and her sister Princess Beatrice, they just can’t catch a break. Even though they have royal blood, they are often forced to stand behind Kate Middleton’s shadow. They have to fight for their time in the spotlight. And now that Meghan Markle is in the picture, their situation is about to become worse. With the media focusing on every move Meghan makes, no one is going to be paying attention to Eugenie and Beatrice at all.
For Princess Eugenie, this is frustrating. She wants to be taken seriously as a royal who is dedicated to her charity work and making the world a better place. But it’s not going to happen if people don’t take her seriously or can’t pronounce her name right for that matter. That’s why she finally wants people to get it right.
