Eugenie and Beatrice are known for their closeness, with both sisters acting as Maid of Honour at their respective weddings in the past two years. The pair have grown stronger together as they both endured the glaring media spotlight which follows all members of the Royal Family. But like most siblings, the pair have experienced their fall outs, with Beatrice, 32, once admitting to a rare row with her 30-year-old sister, over a pair of shoes.
Speaking before her sister’s wedding two years ago, Beatrice recalled: “One of the biggest fights we ever had was about a pair of Converse trainers.
“We have the same size feet and both of us had identical pairs.
“One pair got trashed and the other sister may have swapped them.”
Although trivial, it suggests just how indestructible their relationship is, with Eugenie lavishing praise on her sister for the way she supported her while they grew up.
Eugenie told Vogue: “There was a horrible article that had been written about Beatrice and she got really upset.
“We were just about to step out and she had a bit of a wobble and cried. I was looking after her.
“And then about an hour later, I had a wobble and started crying and Bea was there for me.”
In another confession, Eugenie admitted that “when we were young, I used to always make Bea go into parties first”, as she lacked the confidence of her sister.

But in more recent times, William and Harry have appeared to move in separate directions, with the Duke of Sussex claiming last year that they were on “different paths”.
Royal authors Carolyn Durrand and Omid Scobie, writers of the new Sussex biography ‘Finding Freedom’ claim that the row erupted after William referred to Meghan Markle as “this girl”, before Harry decided to marry the former US actress.
Harry was unhappy at the “tone of snobbishness” that was “anathema to his approach to the world”, and royal insiders say this sparked the downfall of the two brothers’ burgeoning connection.
Yet, in a move away from the rift claims, both Harry and William issued a joint statement surrounding plans to immortalise their mother with a new statue inside Kensington Palace last month.
The statement said: “The Princes hope that the statue will help all those who visit Kensington Palace to reflect on their mother’s life and her legacy.”
