Princess Eugenie says she got in big trouble over one of her Instagram posts


The end of a year brings with it a much-loved social media tradition: The Instagram ‘best nine’.

Even Princess Eugenie is no exception to the latter, posting a sweet picture of ‘the best moment of 2018’ – from her wedding to Jack Brooksbank in October, at which she had three different wedding dresses.
