Princess Eugenie’s dress was royal blue in colour and was knee-length with black decorative detailing flowing throughout the summery dress. The dress contained frills at the bottom of the midi dress and also along the V-neck style at the top. Eugenie had long sleeves which were perfect for the October weather, and were on-trend with slightly puffy features at her wrists.
Similarly, on the Cambridges’ 2019 Christmas card, Kate could be seen wearing another blue midi dress.
This time it was a baby blue floral print floaty dress from Boden.
The Boden Aurora Midi Wrap Dress In Heron Blue Daisy Field retailed at Boden, John Lewis, and at Nordstrom.
Princess Eugenie’s dress was remarkably similar to Kate’s blue midi long-sleeved dresses, and perhaps was influenced by Kate’s style which is often praised by royal commentators.
However, according to body language expert Judi James, there are no “obvious signs” of a close relationship between the royal pair.
Judi said: “Although Catherine is always seen as epitomising all things regal, with her elegant body language and her impeccable Vogue-spread styling the version of royal that she sports is actually more of an imported look for the Firm than one that runs in their DNA.
“Women who are born royal, like Beatrice, Eugenie, Anne, Zara and even the Queen lack the catwalk quality and the love of high fashion.
“Beatrice and Eugenie have had both ridicule and criticism thrown at them hurtfully and unfairly over the years for their unique and eye-catching styling and both look so much more comfortable recently appearing bare-faced and casually dressed as they focus on their husbands and babies.
According to the Anti-Slavery Collective on Twitter: “They painted around the theme of freedom and what it meant to each survivor.”
Princess Eugenie is the co-founder of the Anti-Slavery Collective.
She has been working against modern slavery since 2012, along with her close friend Julia de Boinville.
The Anti-Slavery Collective continued: “The Salvation Army offers survivors of modern slavery a wide range of services including: confidential legal advice, health care, counselling, educational opportunities, financial support, and support in obtaining employment and housing.
