Princess Eugenie’s Moving To NYC! A Royal Gal’s Guide To The City
Princess Eugenie of York will soon be Princess Eugenie of New York! Looks like the 23-year-old Newcastle University graduate has done Paris proud and landed herself a real-life job at Paddle8, an online auction house specializing in collaborations with non-profits. Paddle8 was founded in 2011 by Aditya Julka and Alexander Gilkes, who has ties to the royal family.
We’re justifiably very excited to host our new favorite citizen and soon-to-be BFF, and just in case the
#pippatips don’t cut it on the mean streets of NYC we’ve thrown together a guide for Eug (can we call you Eug?) to keep on hand. The move will mean leaving her family and her Stowe-educated boyfriend Jack Brooksbank, so we’ll also be on hand to provide support during this tough period of transition. You’ll be picking up the checks though, right Eugenie?

The Upper West Side apartment where fellow Brit John Lennon lived (and was shot) is possibly the most exclusive building in New York. Just being rich and famous doesn’t guarantee you a room, but having ‘Princess’ on your application form probably aids the process.
1 W 72nd Street, Upper West Side
2.Rita Hazan Salon
Now that she’s living like a commoner, Eugenie will need to DIY a blowdry. Rita Hazan gives Blow Out lessons with a top stylist and a customized product package with which to recreate the look at home – and all for just $350. Bargain!
720 5th Avenue, Midtown
3.Dominique Ansel Bakery
Cronuts: Just to see if she can.
189 Spring Street, South Village
4.Barbara Feinman Millinery
When it comes to headwear her sister might be more into the ostentatious variety, but we'd advise Eugenie to pay a visit to famed NYC milliner Barbara Feinman for something chic and subtle.
66 E 7th Street
The royals loooove their Pimms. If Eugenie is brave enough to venture between avenues Beware and Caution she can reward herself with an S.M. Jenkins at the country clubesque Elsa. It’s a spin on the classic that she might even call an upgrade.
217 E 3rd Street, East Village
6.Myers of Keswick
Myers of Keswick peddles meat pies and digestive biscuits to homesick Brits from a cute storefront in the West Village. The shipping costs are worked into the price tags, but we don’t expect that should be too much of a problem.
634 Hudson Street, West Village
7.rag & bone
The one-stop Downtown Uniform shop.
182 Columbus Ave, Upper West Side
8.Tea and Sympathy
We’re yet to try her grandma’s scones, but if the ones at Tea and Sympathy don’t stand up Eugenie can find solace in the photos of her family that adorn the walls. They’ve also got a handy list of rules for first-timers, the last of which advises non-natives exactly how much to tip.
108 Greenwich Ave, West Village
It’s sure no throne, but taking a seat at SoulCycle is almost as hard since it became known that Jake Gyllenhaal was a regular (also apparently this guy from
New Girl). Otherwise she could burn off the extra cals with Anna Wintour over at Midtown Tennis Club. 12 E 18th Street, Union Square
Nothing brings people together like pork fat. Brit chef April Bloomfield’s “Hogwarts for hipsters” sits in the lobby of the Ace Hotel and would make a perfect dinner spot for Eugenie and her new NYC besties.
20 W 29th Street, Midtown West
