Buckingham Palace left red-faced after Princess Eugenie blunder

Buckingham Palace left red-faced after Princess Eugenie blunder

On Friday, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank said “I do” in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

While the wedding was quickly overshadowed with the announcement that Prince Harry and Meghan are expecting their first child, a mistake by Buckingham Palace has added to the insult.

The official Instagram account of The Royal Family made one disastrous blunder while announcing the sale of commemorative mugs marking last Friday’s nuptials.

The post, which informed followers that the limited edition mugs were available “only till Saturday”, mistakenly referred to Princess Beatrice, rather than Eugenie.

“This exclusive mug issued in commemoration of the wedding of HRH Princess Beatrice of York and Mr Jack Brooksbank is now available for purchase by following the link in the description,” the caption said.

Princess Beatrice is Eugenie’s older sister and was chosen to be her maid of honour on her wedding day.

The post was quickly deleted and has been uploaded again with the correct details.
