Buckingham Palace Made a Typo in Social Media and Called Princess Eugenie 'Eugene'
The Royal Family’s Twitter handle dished out the latest information on Princess “Eugenie,” but the tweet was embarrassingly faulted.
The young royalty had attended a charity event which the royal family’s social media account added to the family’s news. However, while tweeting, a faux pas was committed, and Princess Eugenie’s name was spelled “Eugene.”

It was fantastic to have the opportunity to speak at the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe’s (OSCE) 19th Alliance against Trafficking in Persons Conference. 57 OSCE participating States and 11 Partners for co-operation from Europe, Central Asia, and North America have come together to examine how technology can be leveraged in order to support survivors and to break the cycle of human trafficking. #osce #humantrafficking #humantraffickingawareness @the_anti_slavery_collective @osceorg
The tweet read:
“Princess Eugene speaks to a group of young people about how they achieved their Gold Award. The @DofE has inspired millions of young people to serve their communities to experience adventure and develop and learn outside the classroom.”
Royal Family Twitter account makes a VERY awkward typo in a post about 'Princess Eugene'https://t.co/24S1jXcerY— Daily Mail Femail (@Femail) May 24, 2019
Realizing the error, the team behind the twitter account immediately took it down and re-posted the tweet with the appropriate spelling. Before the development, the team committed another blunder concerning news on the latest addition to the royal household.

After Baby Sussex’s birth, a web page was created for him on the Royal family’s website. The first news published about the newborn read:
“Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born at 05:26 on Monday 6 May. He is the first child of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.”
Baby Archie was named the child of Kate Middleton and Prince Williams. The misinformation was later reverted as the key items were changed to “He is the first child of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex,” but the public eye already got a whiff of the gaffe.

Princess Eugenie, herself, recently went under fire with regards to her caption on an Instagram post. While celebrating National Siblings’ Day, the Queen’s granddaughter shared a post in honor of her older sister, Beatrice on her Instagram page.
The princess had posted two photos of her and Beatrice which include a picture from Beatrice’s wedding and an up-close garden snap. She wrote:
“Happy National Siblings Day... and to my big sister, your the best especially when helping me and my dress into the getaway car. #nationalsiblingday.”
Social media trolls rather than acknowledge the gesture, picked up on a spelling error, and slammed the Royal as they found it inappropriate that the Princess committed a blunder in her language. Someone wrote:
“‘You're’ not ‘your.’ Ugh, seriously, English language mistakes from English royalty? They can't be making such tiny errors. Reflects badly on them. Nobody can for that matter.”
It seems the handlers of the Royal Family’s news have not been able to completely rid themselves of errors as once again, news concerning Princess Eugenie was mishandled. The Royal Family's twitter account made spelling errors while publishing news about the Princess’s wedding to Jack. Brooksbank.
The groom’s name was misspelled, as reported by Buzzfeed. The tweet read:
“Princess Eugenie and Mr. Jacksbrook have invited people from the charities they support onto the grounds of Windsor Castle tomorrow — to help them celebrate their wedding day.”
But the error did not remain the same as the handlers of the royal page did the needful.
