Princess Eugenie Likely ‘Trying to Smooth Things Over’ Between Prince Harry and Royal Family During California Visit — Author

Will Princess Eugenie improve relations between Prince Harry and the rest of the British royal family? A royal author thinks the 31-year-old, who has recently been spotted in California with the Duke of Sussex, is likely trying. 

Eugenie and Harry went to the Super Bowl together

The Super Bowl typically draws a lot of celebrities and this year was no different. The stands, like the star-studded commercials, were filled with recognizable faces at SoFi Stadium on Feb. 13, 2022. 

There to watch the Los Angeles Rams take on the Cincinnati Bengals were plenty of celebrities. Among them were Jennifer Lopez, Ben Affleck, Justin Bieber, Kendall Jenner, and more. 

Also on the list of famous faces were British royalty. Harry made a surprise appearance. Not with his wife, Meghan Markle, but with his cousin, Eugenie. The two were seen chatting and laughing throughout the game as they wore face masks and lanyards. Harry struck a relaxed pose as he gave his cousin a glimpse of his new life.

Author Phil Dampier thinks the cousins will have likely discussed the current status of Harry’s relationship with the rest of the royal family. “They’ve always got on very well and been very close,” he told The Telegraph in February 2022,

He continued: “If there is going to be an emissary, or an intermediary, between Harry and the royal family back home, she could well fit the bill. I’m sure when they met in LA, they would have talked about the situation – and I’m sure she’ll be trying to smooth things over.” 

“She could be one of the ways whereby tentative steps could be taken to try and heal the rift,” the Royally Suited author added.

Eugenie’s visit marks the first time a royal has traveled to California since Harry and Meghan relocated to a $14.7 million property in Montecito. The couple lives there with their 2-year-old son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, and their 8-month-old daughter, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor. 

While it’s unclear whether or not Eugenie is staying with Meghan and Harry they certainly have the room. Their home has 16 bathrooms and nine bedrooms. Plenty of space to host Eugenie, her husband, Jack Brooksbank, and their 1-year-old son, August. 

Meghan and Harry detailed their royal experience in 2021

Since leaving royal life behind them Meghan and Harry have opted for a quieter, more private existence in California. 

On one occasion Harry described him and Prince William as being on “different paths.” During their March 2021 Oprah Winfrey interview, Meghan and Harry detailed their royal experience. 

Harry described his father and brother as “trapped.” Meghan recalled Kate Middleton making her cry. Additionally, they both touched on an incident where an unnamed royal commented on Archie’s skin color
