The photo, posted to her Instagram, showed some working members of the royal family on the balcony of Buckingham Palace after the Platinum Pageant. While it’s not known if the harvest was intentional, royal watchmen were quick to point out that the 40-year-old duchess is missing. One commentator even speculated that Princess Eugenie “don’t like Kate.”
Terry (@booji410) wrote on Twitter: “Maybe she doesn’t like Kate and didn’t want her in the picture.
“What is wrong with that.”
Another, @alfrehedman, agreed, writing: “She did it to show people who cropped her.
“Obviously she doesn’t get along with those two.”
Others praised the princess for the move, with ToKa (@rktorrero) writing, “Now I like Eugene even more.”
Shan Erith (@SianErith) added: “GOOD JOB Eugenie! Well done!”
Meanwhile, Efuru (@realfranzprusse) added: “Eugenie shows an unusual power of character independence. I love it!”
Another, @DuchessJRM, joked, “I love it! Eugenie isn’t playing”.

“She just focused on the people she’s actually related to.”
Princess Eugenie posted the photo on Instagram alongside other images from the anniversary.
In the caption, she paid tribute to her “grandma,” the Queen.
She wrote: “Thank you, Your Majesty, Grandma, for 70 years of service, selflessness and dedication.
“You are such a shining light to all of us.
“Just a final look at some of the epic moments from the most special weekend that I was so honored to have.
“From the birthday parade to celebrating with @edencommunities in Paddington for their #bigjubileelunch to showing Augie the colorful parade and cheering loudly for this remarkable woman.”
