Princess Eugenie's new "confidence" can be seen in her break from Royal Family protocol, a commentator has claimed.

In 2011, the Princess of York, who was 21 at the time, wore an opulent Philip Treacy fascinator to complement her bold Vivienne Westwood dress at Princess Kate's wedding.

Eugenie's outfit, along with her sister Princess Beatrice's outfit, caused widespread mockery on social media.

Beatrice and Eugenie's style was cruelly compared to the elegant bride the Princess of Wales and her sister, Pippa Middleton, who acted as bridesmaid.

However, a celebrity stylist claimed that Princess Eugenie, now 34, has undergone a fashion transformation.

Alex Longmore said: "I believe this new-found fashion confidence Princess Eugenie has, and her more stylised approach to dressing, is due to motherhood and how satisfied she is in the role of mum to two boys.

"Her outfit choices have evolved hugely in the last few years, favouring block colours over the tawdry floral prints of the past.

"She has also learnt what styles work with her figure."

Princess Eugenie recently appeared at the Cheltenham Festival alongside her cousin Zara Tindall, 42.

Eugenie received widespread for her outfit, which featured a £338 trench coat and a £168 dress, both from Reiss.

Longmore continued to tell The Mail: "The royal broke from tradition, and it worked.

"She pulled off what most women can only dream of - an individual look that is polished, chic and put together."

Stylist Charlie Anderson was enlisted to dress Eugenie and Beatrice following their royal wedding faux pas in 2011, sharing her fashion expertise with the siblings.

Anderson has said that both girls were "a delight to work with" and that Eugenie, in particular, was open to new ideas.

She said: "Eugenie knew herself very well but was also willing to listen and try what I proposed."

By the year 2017, Eugenie was turning heads in a colourful floral dress from Erdem at the 2017 UNAIDS Gala.

The Princess of York married Jack Brooksbank in 2018, and Eugenie stunned in a bespoke ivory silk jacquard dress by Peter Pilotto.

Its primary feature was a deep V-back, intended to show off Eugenie's scar from scoliosis surgery that she had aged 12.

After becoming a mother of two, Eugenie began 2024 by travelling to Paris Couture Fashion Week.

She looked beautiful in a tailored wool dress and tuxedo-inspired coat for the occasion.
