Princess Eugenie hits the slopes for her 18th birthday
Princess Eugenie, the second daughter of Andrew, Duke of York, 48, and Sarah, Duchess of York, 48, chose to go skiing with family to mark her 18th birthday which was on March 23rd.
Reportedly, Eugenie was given the opportunity to throw a lavish birthday party much like the 2006 party given for sister Beatrice’s 18th birthday at Windsor Castle. However, the younger princess opted for something a little bit more action oriented by skiing at the Swiss resort of Verbier. And it is fitting that joining Eugenie was her mother and sister, who she describes as "my best friends in the world."
In a recent magazine interview to commemorate her 18th birthday, Eugenie spoke about the differences between herself and her sister Beatrice, 19, saying:
I just like throwing on a pair of jeans and generally being more understated.
She explained Beatrice "is more ‘Let’s do the glamour’."
