Royal March Birthdays

Time to celebrate Royal March Birthdays!

March 10, 1964: Prince Edward Earl of Wessex

To kick off his 50th birthday, Edward and Sophie hosted a shingling at their palatial home, Bagshot Park, over the weekend. Guests included the Queen and Philip, Lord Linley, Tim and Lady Helen Taylor. Charles, Andrew, and Anne weren’t photographed going in but hopefully they were there, right? Meanwhile we know that Kate and William were off on yet another holiday, this time in the Maldives.

He also released a new portrait of his family that was taken in their wood panelled dining room.

Edward didn’t chill out on his birthday, either. He spent the morning with Sophie at Robert Browning Primary School where he was given a massive birthday card and was even serenaded with a birthday cake.

Later on (after a quick wardrobe change) they were at Westminster Abbey for the Commonwealth Day Service. I hope William and Kate are taking notes 😉

PS Sophie was wearing her wedding earrings that were a gift from Edward. Haven’t seen her wear them in awhile!

March 23, 1990: Princess Eugenie of York

Princess Eugenie turns 24 this year. She’s been living in the Big Apple since the fall and working for auction house Paddle 8, who’ve definitely gotten extra press for having a princess on their pay roll. Vanity Fair was all over it.

Meanwhile big sis Beatrice has joined twitter as @yorkiebea – maybe Eug will follow?

Happy Birthday!

  1. The “happy family” picture of the Wessex clan is so sweet. I love how much Louise looks like her mother, and how James is so like his father at the same age. They all look so genuinely happy, especially Edward, who looks very off his guard….not like the photos I’m used to seeing of him at all.
