Princess Eugenie and her sister Princess Beatrice have been told by Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles that they cannot get the title or privileges of full-time royals. Yet Princess Eugenie is trying to project herself as a significant person - as important as the rest of the family, at least. She has also declared that she is involved in an art auction in order to help disadvantaged children.
Princess Eugenie of York is said to be hosting the "Be Inspired" Contemporary Art Auction at Christie's on King Street in London on March 8, so that the capital city's underprivileged children can get assistance, according to Royal Central. Whatever will be earned from the 'Be Inspired' charity will get transferred to British kids in danger of getting left out or ignored. Princess Eugenie is a patron of the organization.
Since last year, the royal household has been trying to sideline Princess Eugenie. The Queen gave up 25 of her charity patronages in order to reduce her own workload, as she has turned 91. She was also distributing the tasks that she had to take up. However, Prince Andrew's daughters were left out.
Princess Eugenie explained that the Children and the Arts inspired her because of its amazing work to help underprivileged children overcome their worries and barriers. By holding an art auction, Princess Eugenie declares that she can help the kids to overcome their problems.
Earlier, Princess Eugenie was an associate director at a London art gallery, as Artnet News reported earlier. But she may now have left her job, as she has not been seen at the Hauser and Wirth art gallery for the past one year. While Princess Eugenie's work at the art auction has been commended, many critics feel that it might be a way of sending a message to Queen Elizabeth and Princess Kate - that Princess Eugenie too is important, and makes valuable contributions to society and the world.
