The royal family is no stranger to media attention and over time, the Queen’s relationship with members of her household have been placed under close scrutiny. One relationship that has surely attracted significant coverage is Queen Elizabeth’s relationship with Princess Eugenie of York, as their connection to each other has been the source of countless theories.
For instance, after Eugenie’s wedding and the famous wedding picture of the handsome couple and the royal family, most people suggested that the Queen was distanced from the princess, just from examining picture’s arrangement and body language.
Princess Eugenie of York and Jack Brooksbank are delighted to release four official photographs from their Wedding day. The images were taken by photographer Alex Bramall at Windsor Castle and later in the day at Royal Lodge.#RoyalWedding https://t.co/Ls86G6PYds pic.twitter.com/dncMFdViQs— The Royal Family (@RoyalFamily) October 13, 2018
For some people, the arrangement in the picture and the distance from the Queen to the Princess was most questionable.

On the other hand, rumors have also suggested that the Queen is indeed close to Eugenie, as she allegedly supported the princess and her sister Beatrice in their right to have higher royal profiles and duties. Well, for some time, it seemed that it’s impossible to truly put a finger on the dynamics of their bond with each other.
The Queen is fond of Princess Eugenie: The pictures tell it all
However, after the Queen delivered her 2018 Christmas Message, the debate on Elizabeth II’s connection to Princess Eugenie was reawakened.
In the speech, where the Queen addressed various notable events of the busy year and called for peace in the nation especially with Brexit divisions, she also reflected on the personal aspects of the year. Aside from noting that the year had been busy for her as a grandmother, she also recognized that the two royal weddings and Prince Charles' 70th birthday were significant as they had her schedule packed.
Well, since a photo is worth a thousand words, the pictures in the room as the Queen made her address spoke volumes and it was easy to note that truly, the Queen likes Eugenie. From the pictures on the table and the photo stand further on the left, a photo of the Princess of York’s wedding is hard to miss as it’s the largest one compared to other pieces.
The wedding picture, where the beautiful Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank pose with their magnificently dressed bridesmaids and page boys, is given center stage on the stand to signify that the Queen is truly fond of the Princess.
The photograph is even larger in size compared to her neighbor Harry’s picture on the far left, and this quiets any debate on a possible distant relationship between the Queen and the Princess.
Princess Charles also featured on the pieces
Well, it is no secret that the Queen is very proud of his son Prince Charles, who is set to succeed her as King. And among the pieces in the videos, a unique black and white picture featuring her Majesty, Prince Philip, and six-month-old Prince Charles completed the scene.
In the picture, the Queen is happy, Prince Philip is stoic, and the baby Charles looks most adorable. Ultimately, it would seem that for the Queen, pictures are not only decorations but also important memorabilia that bare her deep emotions towards those closest to her heart.
