Trump congratulates Princess Eugenie on wedding

President Trump took to Twitter Sunday to congratulate Princess Eugenie on her marriage to Jack Brooksbank. “Princess Eugenie of York was a truly beautiful bride yesterday. She has been through so much, and has come out a total winner!” Trump tweeted about the royal newlywed, although her wedding occurred on Friday, not Saturday. Trump was most likely referring to Eugenie’s battle with scoliosis when she was a child. The daughter of Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and Sarah Ferguson underwent surgery when she was 12 years old to treat the condition. The operation left a scar down her back, which she showed off with her low back wedding dress and no veil.

Windsor Castle gears up for Princess Eugenie’s royal wedding

It’s time for another royal wedding at Windsor Castle — but this time it’s less of a global TV spectacle and more of a family affair. Princess Eugenie, the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II, is set to marry tequila company executive James Brooksbank on Friday morning, but the second royal union of the year seems to have less interest than Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s May celebration. Michael Taylor, a drummer from Chicago who toured Windsor Castle on Wednesday told the Associated Press that he had “no interest” in the October 12 wedding. “I don’t know anything about her. If she walked past me right now, I wouldn’t even know.” Eugenie is the 28-year-old daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, and ninth in line for the throne....

Inside Princess Margaret’s life as the original royal wild child

Princess Margaret poses for a photo in 1951.  (ullstein bild Dtl. / Contributor via Getty Images) She mocked Liz Taylor, partied with Mick Jagger and slept with any man she fancied. There seemed to be few moments in her 71 years that Princess Margaret wasn’t a magnet for scandal. And, as fans of Netflix’s historical drama “The Crown” will tell you, it’s hard to keep your eyes off her. It will probably get even harder when Season 3 airs in January and Helena Bonham Carter plays the whisky-swilling, sneering socialite. But as British writer Craig Brown points out, “The Crown” isn’t a documentary. “A lot of stuff is made up or exaggerated,” said the author of “Ninety-Nine Glimpses of Princess Margaret,” a book of biographical vignettes, out Tuesday. There was no need to embellish the princess...

Several took to social media to comment on the “cheeky” siblings. “Cuteness,” one Twitter user replied. “Too darn cute,” another echoed. ...
