She's only human...

Words by Maisie Bovingdon

Princess Eugenie has come under fire from social media users this week, and all for a grammatical error.

The 29-year-old royal - who is ninth in line to the throne - paid a sweet tribute to her older sister Princess Beatrice on National Sibling's Day on Thursday.

Eugenie - who has previously opened up about her battle with dyslexia - posted a photograph of her with her sibling on her wedding day last year, followed by a heartwarming snap of the duo laying side by side on the grass in a fit of giggles.

She captioned the Instagram upload: 'Happy National Siblings Day... and to my big sister, your the best especially when helping me and my dress into the getaway car. #nationalsiblingday.'

Did you spot the blip? Eugenie wrote 'your' instead of 'you're.'

The typo did not go unnoticed, and social media users slammed her for the bad grammar.

One commented: 'Eugenie's grammar and spelling are usually bad. So much for higher education!'

While a second added: 'Seriously English language mistakes from English royalty? They can't be making such tiny errors. Reflects badly on them. Nobody can for that matter.'


But others jumped to Eugenie's defence.

'Even royals make spelling/grammar errors. We've all done it - let it go', wrote one user. 'Never mind the grammar it’s their picture we are supposed to enjoy and I couldn’t care less about grammar love the photo they both look gorgeous.'

Grammar mistakes or not, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie are sister goals to the max.
