It is no secret that Eugenie Bouchard is an avid admirer of the British royal family. The Canadian tennis ace has expressed her love and appreciation for the royals on multiple occasions.
Eugenie Bouchard, who recently landed in Auckland ahead of the ASB Classic, spent her time off the court viewing a video from the childhood of Prince William, Prince Harry, Princess Beatrice, and Princess Eugenie, where the young quartet was seen enjoying a skiing holiday.
The tennis star shared a snippet from the viewing, specifically mentioning her “cute” namesake Princess Eugenie.
Interestingly, Bouchard had previously revealed that her mother, who similarly adores the royal family, had in fact named her as well as her twin sister Beatrice and younger siblings Charlotte and William after the royal children. “You could say, my mom is a Royal fanatic. Ya. My twin sister is Beatrice, and my younger sister is Charlotte, and my younger brother is little Prince William,” she had revealed.
The 2014 Wimbledon runner-up also once confessed her special affection towards her namesake and recalled that the princess was present to watch her incredible feat at the SW19. “I love following Princess Eugenie. I was named after her. She watched me play in the finals of Wimbledon. I love her so much,” she had said.
