Princess Eugenie’s son August’s birth, on February 9, has marked history in a major way.
On the same day, the Queen’s sister Princess Margaret passed away at the age of 71, weeks prior to the Queen’s mother’s death.
The birth of August was a major turn for history as marked a reason to celebrate amid what was historically thought of as a time of grief.
“I was also reminded that it was the day Princess Margaret died, so in terms of royal history, it’s turned on its head,” a royal expert said on Pod Save the Queen.
“It’s become a bit of a day for a happy occasion.”
