Princess Eugenie Shares National Gallery Film Project Amid Prince Harry's UK Visit

Princess Eugenie, daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, took to Instagram on May 12, 2024, to announce her involvement in an exciting film project with the National Gallery. The announcement comes just days after her cousin, Prince Harry, visited the UK, where he was reportedly snubbed by King Charles and the royal family.

In her Instagram post, Princess Eugenie shared details about the National Gallery's "Exhibition on Screen" project, titled "My National Gallery." The film, set to be released in cinemas worldwide on June 4th, celebrates the Gallery's anniversary and showcases Eugenie's passion for history, art, and a specific painting, "Madonna of the Basket" by Antonio da Correggio.

Why this matters: The ongoing tensions between Prince Harry and the royal family have significant implications for the monarchy's public image and relationships with its members. As the royal family navigates these complex dynamics, the public's perception of the monarchy's relevance and role in modern society may be influenced.

The collaboration between Exhibition on Screen and the National Gallery promises to offer viewers a unique perspective on the Gallery's collection and its significance. Princess Eugenie's involvement adds a personal touch to the project, as she shares her insights and appreciation for the artworks.

The timing of Princess Eugenie's announcement is particularly noteworthy, as it follows Prince Harry's recent visit to the UK to mark the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games. During his visit, Prince Harry was reportedly snubbed by his father, King Charles, and the royal family.

According to Prince Harry's spokesperson, a meeting between Harry and King Charles was not possible due to the King's "full programme" of commitments and priorities. "In response to the many inquiries and continued speculation on whether or not the duke will meet with his father while in the U.K., it unfortunately will not be possible due to His Majesty's full programme. The duke of course is understanding of his father's diary of commitments and various other priorities and hopes to see him soon," the spokesperson stated.

The apparent snub by the royal family highlights the ongoing tensions between Prince Harry and his relatives since he stepped back from his royal duties in 2020. Despite the challenges, Prince Harry remains committed to his charitable endeavors and causes, such as the Invictus Games.

As Princess Eugenie prepares for the release of her National Gallery film project, the royal family continues to navigate the complex dynamics and public scrutiny surrounding Prince Harry's relationship with the monarchy. The film's release on June 4th promises to provide a welcome distraction and a celebration of art and history, even as the royal family grapples with internal tensions and public perceptions.
