Princess Eugenie shares sweet glimpse of secret ‘royal cousins' lunch’ with Mike Tindall


Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson’s daughter Princess Eugenie posted heartwarming pictures on Instagram showing her and her husband Jack Brooksbank and their one-year-old son enjoying the historic RAF flypast on what appears to be the roof of St James’s Palace. The Queen’s grandchildren are thought to have gathered on there for the momentous Trooping the Colour parade before attending a secret cousins’ lunch, which was revealed by Zara Tindall’s husband, Mike.

As a non-working member of the Royal Family, Princess Eugenie could not stand on the Buckingham Palace balcony to watch the flypast.

Although it remains unconfirmed, videos shared on Princess Eugenie’s Instagram show Princess Beatrice and her stepson Wolfie and the Tindalls also present on the roof to watch the historic moment.

It is believed to have taken place just before the cousins enjoyed a lunch together, which was described as one of the “highlight” of the Jubilee by Mr Tindall.

Ex-rugby star Mr Tindall told how the Queen’s grandchildren who watched from the Major General’s Office overlooking Horse Guards Parade went for lunch while working members of the Firm including the Queen, Prince Charles, Camilla, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Princess Anne enjoyed lunch at Buckingham Palace.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are understood to have returned immediately to Frogmore Cottage.

This means that it was just Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice with their husbands and children, the Tindalls, and Peter Philips and his daughters who attended the lunch.
