THE ROYAL family had an awkward moment on Twitter this week, when they spelt Princess Eugenie’s name wrong online.
The unfortunate incident occurred when the social media account posted some images of the stunning royal, and referred to her “Princess Eugene”.

The original post read: “Princess Eugene speaks to a group of young people about how they achieved their Gold Award. The @DofE has inspired millions of young people to serve their communities, experience adventure and develop and learn outside of the classroom.”
The palace must have quickly realised their blunder, as they swiftly deleted the post and reuploaded it with correct spelling of the name.
It’s not the first time in recent weeks that the royal family has slipped up online, after previously listing the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as Archie’s parents.
On Harry and Meghan’s baby’s royal web page, it said: “Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born at 05:26 on Monday 6 May. He is the first child of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.”

This was later changed to “he is the first child of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex”, but not before fans had screenshotted the error.
It seemed to be yet another blunder for the palace PR team as the nation’s attention was trained on them this month for the baby news.
Media had been assured they would be told when Meghan Markle, 37, would go into labour – but the emails failed to send.
ROYALS' BLUNDERING PR MACHINE
- Failed to alert media that Meghan was in labour – blaming tech problems for emails not being sent
- Announced labour on Monday afternoon, hours after baby Archie was born with no explanation given
- Allowed US broadcaster CBS access to Archie’s first appearance leading to claims of favouritism
- Named William and Kate as Baby Sussex’s parents on his official website page. It was later corrected
The palace later offered a “profuse” apology, blaming it on a tech failure.
However, there was no explanation as to why the labour announcement had been made on Monday afternoon, hours after the Duchess of Sussex gave birth at 5.26am.
Princess Eugenie herself has also made a mistake online, this time on her Instagram page.
On National Sibling’s Day in April, she did a tribute post to her sister Beatrice, 30, and added “your the best”.
Followers commented on the image to point out the correct grammar would have been “you’re the best”.
