Eugenie joins the Queen for Maundy Thursday service

Princess Eugenie has made a rare appearance at an official event with the Queen, joining her grandmother at the Maundy Thursday service.

Eugenie returned to Windsor Castle’s St George’s Chapel, where she wed husband Jack Brooksbank last autumn, for the annual event where the Queen distributes money to community stalwarts.

When the Queen arrived at the chapel’s north door with her granddaughter they were presented with traditional nosegays – which in ancient times warded off unpleasant smells – before taking their seats at the head of the congregation.

The Queen wore a buttercup-coloured Stewart Pravin outfit, matching hat by Rachel Trevor-Morgan and an Australian wattle brooch, while her daughter was dressed in a blue and white dress.

Eugenie, 29, joined the Queen when her grandmother, with the Duke of Edinburgh, opened the Great North Museum in Newcastle in 2009.

The then 19-year-old princess was studying English, history of art and politics at the city’s university.
