Have you been saying it “You-Janie” or “You-Jee-nie”? Sorry, folks, you’ve been getting it wrong.
According to her mother, Sarah Ferguson, it’s actually pronounced “YOO-junnee” – and considering she named her, she obviously knows better than anyone.
Earlier this year, Buckingham Palace announced that Princess Eugenie is set to marry her long-term boyfriend Jack Brooksbank. The pair got engaged earlier this month in Nicaragua. The Royal Family’sTwitter account confirmed the happy news with a loved-up photo of the couple.
The statement from the palace reads,
“The Duke and Duchess of York are delighted to announce the engagement of Princess Eugenie to Mr Jack Brooksbank.
“Her Royal Highness and Mr Brooksbank became engaged in Nicaragua earlier this month.
“The wedding will take place in the Autumn of 2018 at George’s Chapel in Windsor, with further details to be announced in due course.”
Let’s just hope Jack pronounces her name right when the couple says their vows.
