The Queen celebrates Princess Eugenie’s 30th birthday with heartfelt message

Princess Eugenie's 30th birthday has been marked by a message of goodwill posted on the royal family's official Twitter account.

Her Royal Highness is the youngest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York.

Today marks the Princess’ 30th birthday, which will no doubt be a spectacular but low-key event due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Eugenie was wished a very Happy Birthday on the official Royal Family Twitter account, in a message that read: "Wishing Princess Eugenie a very Happy Birthday! Her Royal Highness is The Queen's 6th grandchild. Today she turns 30."

The post was accompanied by a photo taken with the Queen, her grandmother, during the Maundy Thursday Service in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle last year.

In the days leading up to her birthday, the princess shared a campaign on her Instagram stories, urging people to give a national round of applause to NHS workers.

She is also a patron of the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital as she underwent a successful operation to straighten her spine at the age of 12.

Princess Eugenie even had her wedding dress specifically designed with a low back to show her surgery scar, at the time she said: “I believe scars tell a story about your past and your future and it's a way of getting rid of a taboo."

Her Highness married businessman Jack Brooksbank in a glittering royal wedding at Buckingham Palace back in 2018.

Princess Eugenie Victoria Helena of York was born on March 23 1990 at the exclusive Portland Hospital in London.

The Duke and Duchess of York kept the nation guessing as to what they would call their youngest daughter.

The name was an unusual choice, and generated much surprise from the public, who commended its Victorian heritage.

Eugenie was born sixth in line to the throne, but moved down to 10th following the arrival of the three Cambridge children and Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

She became the first royal baby to have a public christening when in 1990 she was baptised during morning service at St Mary Magdalene Church.
