Within hours of the new episodes landing on the streaming service, Eugenie was trending on Twitter with numerous royal fans singing her praises.

“I'm suddenly a huge fan of Eugenie,” Twitter user @GammaReigh wrote. “Her mother and Diana, they could have been such a force.”

Another user, @EmRunThis, added that they were “glad Harry has Eugenie”.

“Who said Archie won’t know his father’s family? He knows the ones that matter pls [sic],” user @Ronke_z said. “Happy to see Princess Eugenie hanging out with her little nephew.”
