 Princess Eugenie's Early life

the second child of Prince Andrew, Duke of York , and Sarah, Duchess of York , and sixth grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh . She is also a distant cousin of her late aunt Diana, Princess of Wales , whose father was John Spencer, 8th Earl Spencer , since Eugenie's mother Sarah, Duchess of York is a direct descendant of Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire , daughter of John Spencer, 1st Earl Spencer , (via Georgiana's illegitimate daughter Eliza Courtney ). On 30 March, the seventh day after her birth, it was announced that the Duke and Duchess of York had named the princess Eugenie Victoria Helena.

She was named after Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg and after Princess Helena , Queen Victoria 's granddaughter and daughter respectively.She was christened nine months after her birth—later than most royal children—due to scheduling conflicts involving her father's naval career.

Eugenie is the first British Princess since her grandmother's aunt, Princess Victoria Alexandra Alice Mary (known as Princess Mary or the Princess Royal), to bear the nameVictoria.Queen Victoria had requested that her female descendants bear the name Victoria somewhere in their name; however, neither the Queen, the late Princess Margaret , Princess Alexandra , Princess Anne , nor Princess Beatrice hold the name Victoria. Eugenie is the only one of the Queen's granddaughters without Elizabeth as a middle name.

Eugenie's parents divorced when she was six years old. When she was not at school, she spent her time with her family, as the divorce had been amicable. The Duke and Duchess of York had agreed to joint custody of the girls. Eugenie and her sister frequently travel abroad with one or both of their parents. In the April 2008 issue ofTatler ,Eugenie described her grandmother as "one of the most amazing women ever," and her parents as "the best divorced couple" she knew.

She made a full recovery and is not expected to undergo any further surgery for the condition. When Princess Eugenie turned 17, she underwent orthodontic treatment, like her sister. She had her orthodontic appliances on for two years before they were removed.
