Princess Eugenie ‘could be shoulder to cry on for Beatrice’ amid Andrew trial

It's set to be a difficult year for the princesses

| Updated:

Princess Eugenie will reportedly “be a shoulder to cry on” for her older sister Princess Beatrice should she have to appear as a witness in Prince Andrew‘s trial.

According to royal expert Jennie Bond, the sisters are believed to be supporting each other amid their father Andrew’s legal battles this year.

Royal expert Jennie Bond has revealed that Eugenie and Beatrice are “very close”.

In an interview with OK!, Jennie said Eugenie will take the role of being a shoulder to cry on if Beatrice has to make a statement in the trial.

She said: “I think Eugenie will be the shoulder that Beatrice cries on if she’s called to make a statement under oath, but that appears to be unlikely.”

The royal expert continued, saying that due to the Royal Family having such a “limited circle” of friends and family, it’s going to be difficult for the Princesses to find someone who can understand what they’re going through.

“I always thought that William and Harry would understand any situation but clearly that’s not true,” Jennie said.

She then went on to speak highly of Beatrice and Eugenie’s bond.

“I’ve not heard of any disruption of their relationship,” she added.

Just last week, Prince Andrew was stripped of all his royal military titles and patronages. He will now fight his legal battle as a private citizen.

He will also no longer be referred to as His Royal Highness.

Andrew’s brother, Prince Charles, and his nephew, Prince William, were reportedly instrumental in convincing the Queen to strip the Duke of York of his titles.
