Just days before her birthday, Eugenie brought her husband Jack along with her on her engagement at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital - the first time Jack has ever attended one with the royal. The royal was named patron of the RNOH charity during her visit to open the new Stanmore building with her father Prince Andrew, almost 17 years after she underwent surgery there.

Speaking during her visit, Eugenie explained: "It is such an honour to be here today, I feel like my bones and my blood are a part of this building. I learnt on this visit today that we all share in something with this building because we care, and so to us it is very important that we are here opening this new building and that Jack, as my newly married husband on his first event has been able to come and see where I had my operation."
