The Special Reason Princess Eugenie Brought Her Husband Along for the Very First Time

We get to hear about some members of the British royal family all the time, while others seldom make the news. It’s not that we have anything against these supposedly ignored members of the royal household, as we are sure they are as interesting as the ones who are in focus by the world media.

But the fact is, the media only pays attention to the royals who are likely to be heading the monarchy in the future, like Prince William and even Prince Harry, and so the ones who are way down in the line to the British throne can go on to live their lives in relatively greater privacy than enjoyed by their more famous relatives. Princess Eugenie, who is ninth in line to the throne, is one of them.

Having said that, we are still interested in the activities performed by all the Royals because, by the essence of their job, they are expected to display exemplary behavior and set an example for all of Britain. And so when Princess Eugenie pays a visit to the Royal National Orthopedic Hospital with her father, Prince Andrew, and also her husband (whom she married last year),  Jack Brooksbank, we can’t help but pay attention.

Princess Eugenie and Jack tied the knot back in October 2018.

The Opening of the Stanmore Building

The royals graced the hospital with their presence to officiate the opening of its new building called Stanmore Building. The total cost which has been invested in the building is estimated around $65 million, which includes expenditure made on its modern architectural design as well as the latest health technologies that have been installed to provide the best possible care to patients.

This is not all. In an effort to make it a truly futuristic experience, Pepper, which is a state-of-the-art robot capable of making human interactions, has also been made available at the children’s ward. Although the robot is not able to make any medical interventions, its core function is to engage in conversation with the people who are present at the ward and to play games.

Pepper is a robot that has been made by a company called SoftBank Robotics.

With facial recognition capabilities and the ability to judge human emotion, Pepper is ready to provide a lot of useful information to medical professionals, in addition to being a great source of entertainment for both the patients and their attendants.

Fused With Art

The reason why Prince Andrew had been invited to open the building is that he is part of the hospital as its patron ever since 2003. Princess Eugenie also played a significant role in its making, both as the patron of RNOH Charity’s Redevelopment Appeal, which has financed a portion of the building, and also as associate director of Hauser & Wirth, which is an art gallery based in London.

We may not pay as much attention to Princess Eugenie as we do to Prince Charles’ children, but she is certainly playing her part as a royal very well.

A defining feature of the new building is that it has contemporary art on its walls, which makes the healthcare facility truly one of a kind. This addition has been made considering Princess Eugenie’s role at Hauser & Wirth, and also the fact that the princess had her operation for scoliosis at the same hospital which makes it a very special location for her.
