Princess Andrew and Sarah Ferguson’s daughter says she wants her one-year-old son August to grow up like her beloved grandmother. Writing for The Spectator, Princess Eugenie said: “I dedicate my life to my special little family and hope to impart the values my grandmother lived by throughout her life.
“I think about my son August, what I want to give him, what kind of world I want him to grow up in.
“I think about my grandma and what she has represented for so many people and our families over these 70 years.
“I wish Auggie had her patience, her calm and her kindness, while always being able to laugh at himself and make his eyes twinkle.”
Princess Eugenie has made a touching comment on her move to a second home in Portugal after her husband Jack Brooksbank found a job with George Clooney’s business partner.
In the Queen’s “Meet Again” televised address during lockdown during the pandemic, Eugenie said the message had given the whole country the confidence that everything would be fine again.
She recalled seeing the Queen and her “grandfather” the Duke of Edinburgh stand, wave and smile in the rain for eight hours at the Diamond Jubilee celebrations in 2012 “to move the family and the country forward” as they did as has been done for decades.
Princess Eugenie’s new home is now the luxurious CostaTerra Golf and Ocean Club.
The couple will reportedly travel back and forth between the UK and the fashionable Lisbon coast after Mr Brooksbank was hired by US entrepreneur Mike Melderman.
The Queen is the first British monarch in history to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee.

Millions of people across the country are preparing to take to the streets for parties and national remembrances in her memory over the specially extended Bank Holiday weekend.
The 96-year-old queen, who has mobility issues, returned home with her dog to Windsor Castle after a pre-jubilee holiday in Balmoral on Tuesday, ahead of her four-day celebration pacing.
Her flight back to London was forced to abort the landing when her 13-seater plane was hit by a thunderstorm.
The commemoration kicked off on Thursday with a traditional military parade, with more than 1,500 officers and soldiers and 350 horses from the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
But the Queen’s attendance will only be confirmed in the morning, with royal fans hoping to see her on the balcony with her family for a special air show and possibly even a military parade.
In the evening, more than 3,000 lighthouses will be lit across the UK and the Commonwealth in honour of the Queen, and the main Tree of the Tree lighthouse will be lit outside the palace.
There will be no ceremony for the Queen’s Thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral on Friday, June 3, and if the Queen is in attendance, she will use a different entrance instead of climbing the steep steps.
The Queen’s scheduled trip to Epsom for the Derby on Saturday has been cancelled and the royal family will represent her.
Saturday was also the first birthday of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s daughter Lilibet, with speculation the Queen will meet her namesake for the first time and possibly attend her when Harry and Meghan fly back for the jubilee baptism.
In the evening, the BBC Palace Party will entertain a live audience of 22,000 people and millions of TV viewers on three stages in front of Buckingham Palace.
The lineup includes Diana Ross, Queen + Adam Lambert, Alicia Keys, Nile Rogers, Andrea Bocelli, Duran Duran, Bond composer Hans Zimmer, Ella El, Craig David, Mabel, Elbow and George Ezra.
Charles and William are preparing to deliver a public tribute to the Queen at a concert, which the Queen will watch on TV in Windsor.
Millions will gather for patriotic street parties, picnics and barbecues on Sunday, with more than 85,000 Big Jubilee luncheons taking place across the UK.
The grand finale was a jubilee beauty pageant that ran through the streets of London, with 6,000 performers and nearly 200 celebrities joining the carnival parade.
Hope the Queen will be seen on the balcony of Buckingham Palace one last time to end the weekend and see Ed Sheeran sing the national anthem with a chorus of Britain’s “National Treasures”.
