Princess Eugenie ?used to every pronunciation? of her name ? Royal Central

With Princess Eugenie in the news because of her upcoming wedding, it?s time to ask ourselves a serious question: have we been pronouncing her name correctly all this time?

If you?ve been pronouncing it with a hard ?g?, like YOU-GEE-NEE, then you?ve been saying it wrong. Similarly, if you?ve been saying it like ?YOU-JAY-NEE?, you?ve also been saying it wrong.

I always say You-jen-ee, with the emphasis on the jen. Is that wrong?

The newly engaged royal?s name is pronounced with a soft ?g? ? YOU-JHUN-NEE ? and she revealed to The Sun that her mother, Sarah, Duchess of York, gave her a tip on how to correct the pronunciation when she was younger and people struggled with it.

?Whenever we used to meet foreign people who were struggling with it, my mum and I would help them by saying, ?It?s like Use Your Knees.??

I am just glad I won't ever meet her & have a need to pronounce it correctly.   :teehee:
