Princess Eugenie dressed up to the nines for a starry double date with her husband Jack Brooksbank on Saturday evening, as the couple joined close friends Ellie Goulding and Caspar Jopling for dinner. The foursome were pictured leaving Notting Hill restaurant Casa Cruz – and both ladies most definitely seemed to have dressed up for their meal out post lockdown! Eugenie looked beautiful in a pair of cool leather leggings, Aquazzura embroidered heels and her silky Galvan overcoat, which added a pop of orange to her look.

She told Vanity Fair of the moment: "I did their first dance and like, talk about scary. I was so nervous, my hands were shaking. That's one of my memories, looking down at them [shaking]."

While Eugenie and Jack spent most of the coronavirus lockdown at the home of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, the Princess made a number of appearances on social media and via video call. The couple championed a number of charitable efforts, too, dropping supplies to local healthcare centres, hospitals and organisations in need.

Since the royal family have returned to in-person engagements in recent weeks, perhaps we will see Eugenie pay a visit to one of her patronages soon – and no doubt she'll wow us with her royal wardrobe once again.
