Princess Eugenie has landed into major trouble after her interview with Harper’s Bazaar US for its September edition. Security experts have condemned the 26-year-old princess for tipping off terrorists by divulging her day-to-day routine.
Princess Eugenie, who is eighth-in-line to the British throne, has revealed the name of the gym where she goes to work out not often, but sometimes, causing a threat to her own life, Express UK reports. The younger daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson also tells in the interview that she goes regularly to a park.
The princess after waking up at 6:45 am checks her emails and then between 7 am to 8 am goes for her daily exercises to the park. This apart, Princess Eugenie tells what time she starts work at the Hauser & Wirth gallery.
She also revealed the address of her office and also that she works in their L.A., New York, Somerset in the U.K., and Zurich offices, too. Eugenie buys her lunch at 1 pm from the Detox Kitchen, across Regent Street in Kingly Court.
Princess Eugenie said that often goes out with friends and her boyfriend Jack Brooksbank love eating out at Bocca di Lupo, London and the Palomar in Soho.
“Assuming it is an accurate depiction of what she does, it’s quite a serious error and she should have been advised not to publish or disclose this information,” said Colonel Richard Kemp, former head of the international terrorism team at the Joint Intelligence Committee.
He added that she jeopardized her own security. Col Kemp urged the princess to change her daily routine for fear of “possible abduction or assassination.” He felt that as the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth, she is a major terrorist target, News.com.au reports.
Meanwhile, former Metropolitan Police royal protection chief Dai Davies said it was “unwise” for Princess Eugenie to divulge information.
“Any royal these days really does have to be aware that there all kinds of – not only terrorists – but also those who are fixated or mentally ill who could latch on and suddenly decide this is where they get their five minutes of fame,” said Davies.
