- ELLA PICKOVER

THE youngest daughter of the Duke and Duchess of York has transforme­d herself into a model princess ahead of her 18th birthday – and revealed that she believed her parents were the “best divorced couple I know”.

Princess Eugenie, who will turn 18 on March 23, is going to host a low-key event with family and close friends.

In an interview with Tatler magazine, the princess talked about her family and the relationsh­ips she has with her sister, parents and grandmothe­r.

Talking about the Queen, she said: “She is truly one of the most amazing women ever. She is also very funny. All I can say is that she has this air of magic about her.”

Talking about her parents, Eugenie said the couple had a very amicable split. “They are the best divorced couple I know. I don’t remember much of ‘the divorce’ happening. They just always went out of their way to make us feel loved and secure.”

She has also admitted to bickering with her older sister Princess Beatrice from time to time. “Like all sisters we have silly arguments about unimportan­t stuff, but we do love each other to death.”

Eugenie is studying for her A-Levels at Marlboroug­h College in Wiltshire. She is head of the poetry society at school and her interests include reading, painting and working for her mother’s charity Children in Crisis.
