Princess Eugenie has been spotted shopping in New York City with her mother Sarah, Duchess of York.
The 23-year-old recently relocated to New York to begin a new job at the auction company, Paddle 8.
Princess Eugenie has recently moved to New York to begin a new job at auction house, Paddle 8.
The seventh-in-line was joined by the Duchess of York as the pair enjoyed the shopping delights of SoHo in the city, while the Princess enjoyed a break from work.
Eugenie, who does not undertake royal duties full-time, has moved to America to work for Prince William and Prince Harry’s friend Alexander Gilkes who owns the auction house, Paddle 8.
In 2012, the younger sister of Princess Beatice graudated from Newcastle University with a 2:1 in English Literature and History of Art.
During her studies, Eugenie undertook several work experience placements including a six-week internship at Christie’s auction house and the Princess also spent time with the Royal Collection.
It has been reported the royal will learn more about Paddle 8 in New York in preparation for a UK branch opening in the near future.
Last week, her mother the Duchess of York spoke fondly of her relationship with former-husband Prince Andrew.
“He really is still my handsome Prince,” the Duchess explained as she attended the Bath Children’s Literature Festival on Sunday. “We really believe in being good parents for our girls.”
“He’s still my handsome Prince, he’ll always be my handsome Prince,” Sarah replied when asked if the couple would reconcile in the future.
Speaking at the festival, the Duchess looked back on her wedding day to the Prince. “We had a very beautiful wedding,” she explained to the guests. “Mummies and Daddies in the audience might remember it, I think they might have had a day off.”
Sarah, who still lives with Prince Andrew at the Royal Lodge in Windsor, explained that the couple’s story still has a “happy ending”.
“It’s lovely that we are such a family and the story has a happy ending all the time.
“In our every day, we respect each other and we honour each other.”
