Princess Beatrice, 27, has done something many members of the Royal Family have so far avoided. The granddaughter of the Queen has signed up to Instagram, and the newly engaged royal already has 18,700 followers on the social media platform.

Can we expect to see selfies and pictures of family life from behind the scenes at York family gatherings? The royal claims to have set up the account for one special reason.

She has uploaded images of her with her fiance Jack Brooksbank, showing the pair of them gazing at her engagement ring.

She uploaded a video with a personal, feminist message about why she has chosen to join the site.

The princess captioned a video of herself speaking at The SSE Arena in Wembley: “I can think of no better day than today, International Women’s Day, to launch my personal Instagram.

“I hope to use this platform to share the causes, passions and people close to my heart.”

She posted a message to her mother Sarah Ferguson, 58, who has her own Instagram account, for Mother’s Day.

She wrote: “Happy Mother’s Day to my legend of a mother. @sarahferguson15 And to all mothers on this special day! #mothersday.”

Most royals have avoided being active on social media. The likes of Prince William, 35, Prince Harry, 33 and Kate Middleton, 36, have never had an Instagram account.

Meghan Marke, 36, who will marry Prince Harry on May 19, was once very active on her social media account – but has since deleted it.

What does Princess Eugenie do? The daughter of Prince Andrew.

Her website states: “Princess Eugenie works full time in the art world.”

She is also the patron of various charities including the Coronet Theatre, The European School of Osteopathy and the Teenage Cancer Trust, among others.

The news Princess Eugenie is engaged broke in January.

Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, took to social media to celebrate the engagement of her daughter to Jack Brooksbank, 31.

Princess Eugenie’s engagement ring surprised fans, as it looked just like her mother’s. 

HRH Princess Eugenie of York was given a rare “lotus blossom” sapphire, which an expert has valued at around £7,000 – modest for a royal ring.
