How do you pronounce Eugenie correctly?
News bulletins with the announcement of the second royal wedding of the year were all over the TV.
And it turns out we’ve been pronouncing Eugenie’s name all wrong.
Most people say either “You-Janie” or “You-Jee-nie” – but neither of these is right.
According to her mother, Sarah Ferguson, it’s pronounced “YOO-junnee.”
Those who work in the Royal household have also said many of the family simple call her “Genie” while Beatrice often calls her “Eug”.

She said: “Whenever we used to meet foreign people who were struggling with it, my mum and I would help them by saying, ‘It’s like Use Your Knees.’
“But whatever. I am now used to every pronunciation.”
What’s Princess Eugenie’s full name?
Her full title is Princess Eugenie of York.
But her full name is Eugenie Victoria Helena of York.
After she marries, it’s thought that she’ll be known as HRH Princess Eugenie, Mrs Jack Brooksbank.
