The supposed behaviour is being labelled as evidence of the so-called ‘Meghan effect’ - which has reputedly seen minor royals acting in an increasingly ‘Hollywood’ style.
‘Because of Meghan’s Hollywood-style behaviour, it seems there’s a competition going on among younger royals about who can look most glamorous and have the most status — all of which costs the taxpayer a lot of money. It’s nonsense,’ said Radar’s source.
The story is a rare bit of negative publicity for Eugenie of late - with the young royal still enjoying the afterglow of her recent marriage to Jack Brooksbank. She's also been the subject of plenty of pregnancy speculation.
And after skipping out on a series of major family occasions including the wedding of Lady Gabriella Windsor last weekend, the baby buzz is only growing.
