Princess Eugenie Debuts Tattoo on Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

Bring out the royal tattooist.

Princess Eugenie, the youngest daughter of Prince Andrew and ex-wife Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson, stood out in her daring orange dress last week during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

But that wasn’t the only reason the royal heads turned; she also revealed a small new round tattoo behind her ear.

Eugenie, 23, quietly showed off her fresh ink with a half updo, black wizard and mandarin Emilia Wickstead dress while at St. Paul’s Cathedral on Friday for the Queen’s National Service of Thanksgiving.

While it’s uncommon for royals to get inked, Eugenie isn’t alone; Amelia Windsor, the granddaughter of the Queen’s cousin, the Duke of Kent, has multiple designs. Other tattooed royals from around the world include Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, Princess Stephanie of Monaco and Princess Sofia of Sweden.

While royals tend to adhere to strict dress codes when it comes to nail polish and pantyhose color, there doesn’t seem to be any ban on tattoos; The Queen’s grandfather, Prince George of Wales – who later became King George V – was tattooed while serving in the navy in Japan.

Surprisingly, Prince William once even considered copying friend David Beckham’s large back tattoo, but Kate Middleton is said to have ended that dream.

As for Eugenie, she and her husband Jack Brooksbank brought their 1-year-old son, August, to Sunday’s Platinum Jubilee Pageant, marking the toddler’s first official public appearance.

Little August, who seems to have inherited his grandmother’s red hair, wore a sweater with the Union Jack flag for the occasion.
