Princess Eugenie is ‘one of few’ Royal friendships Meghan and Harry have kept

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have distanced themselves from the Royal Family over the past year.

During their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex told of their struggles since revealing they would step back as senior members of the Royal Family.

Prince Harry revealed he had been “cut off financially" and that he and his brother William “were on different paths” and are giving each other “space”.

One Royal that Meghan and Harry haven’t distanced themselves from is Princess Eugenie.

Prince Harry’s cousin has remained in contact with the couple throughout the move to the US, and they reportedly get on well with her husband Jack Brooksbank.

Royal expert Katie Nicholls told OK! magazine: “Eugenie and Jack are very close to Harry and Meghan. It’s actually one of the few close relationships Harry and Meghan have retained in the Royal Family.”

Meghan actually knew Eugenie before she even met Harry, which is why they have such a great relationship.

Meghan told Oprah: “Eugenie and I had known each other before I had known Harry, so that was comfortable. We’re friends with them as a couple.”

It’s also believed that Eugenie was one of the first members of the Royal Family to know about his relationship with the former actress.

Speaking to US Weekly, a Royal insider said Meghan and Eugenie remain on friendly terms, saying that they “bond over their pregnancies”.

Eugenie has always been a close friend to Harry, who reportedly used to seek dating advice from her.

Royal authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand wrote in their biography, Finding Freedom: “Out of all the Queen's grandchildren, Harry and Eugenie have one of the most natural connections."

They added: “Like Harry, Eugenie is loyal, honest, and great fun. The two had many nights out together in London.”

And continued: “Harry had always confided in his cousin when it came to the women in his life.

"Not only did he trust her implicitly, but friends say that she gives great advice and has always been 'beyond wise' for her years.”
