As she took part in the festivities organized on the second day of the jubilee of Elizabeth II this Friday, June 3, Princess Eugenie surprised the royal family and the subjects of the British crown by showing off a small tattoo. Her slightly raised hairstyle revealed a small circle discreetly drawn just behind her right ear. A stealthy but very noticeable sequence during the mass organized at Saint Paul’s Cathedral in London where Prince Charles, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Wessex family but also Meghan Markle and Harry met.
For the occasion, Princess Eugenie had decided to honor her grandmother Elizabeth II. The 32-year-old wore an orange dress made by one of her favorite designers, Emilia Wickstead. A flashy color that has neither eclipsed her husband Jack Brooksbank, nor her older sister Beatrice of York, nor even her tattoo which continues to make a lot of ink flow at this hour. A heresy in the royal family? Not really. Lady Amelia Windsor, model, often shows off hers on Instagram. A revelation that echoes that of Zara Tindall’s tongue tattoo on Prince Charles’ 50th birthday.
This tattooed ancestor of Princess Eugenie that you do not know
Princess Eugenie is not the first to “go crazy with her body”. Nearly a century before her, King George V could also boast of having gone to a tattoo artist. Successor of Edward VII, the one who was Emperor of India from 1910 to 1936 believed for a time that he would never accede to the throne, a place long promised to his older brother, Albert Victor. Not expecting to become king, Prince George enlisted in the navy, becoming a real sailor, a tough guy… A tattooed one! The future king of England had a red and blue dragon drawn on his arm in Japan in 1881. It is also claimed that he had a tiger tattooed discreetly on his other arm some time later…
