She is the young Royal who has already been heavily criticised for her extravagance in hosting no less than three parties to celebrate her marriage to Jack Brooksbank last year.
But last week an undaunted Princess Eugenie, 28, threw a fourth celebration – to thank everyone involved in the big day.
On Wednesday evening, guests at Windsor Castle enjoyed a private viewing of an exhibition devoted to the wedding, with items on show including the Peter Pilotto-designed wedding dress and Zac Posen evening gown.
Mr Pilotto and his design partner Christopher De Vos were at the party, which one guest described as ‘a beautiful gesture to say thank you’.
Also there were Eugenie’s wedding make-up artist Hannah Martin, who took care of the Duchess of Cambridge, Zara Tindall and Pippa Middleton on their wedding days, and Sandra Choi, creative director for her uncle Jimmy Choo, whose company made the bespoke gold leather shoes the Princess wore for her reception.
The Queen’s granddaughter was criticised for the ostentation of the wedding last October, with the celebrations even outdoing those for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle earlier in the year.
Security for the event cost the taxpayer an estimated £2 million. After the wedding ceremony at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, the Queen hosted a champagne reception.

In the evening, Eugenie and Mr Brooksbank entertained 300 guests at Royal Lodge, the home of the Princess’s parents, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.
The newlyweds arrived in the Aston Martin DB10 from the James Bond film Spectre to be greeted by celebrities including Demi Moore, Jamie Redknapp, Jimmy Carr, Ricky Martin and Ellie Goulding.
Inside a £100,000 marquee, liveried waiters served cocktails and gourmet pizza.
The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra played during dinner and Robbie Williams sang his hits before Eugenie performed a catwalk-style routine on the dance floor flanked by supermodels Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne.
At the following day’s 12-hour extravaganza, 500 guests were treated to fairground rides in the grounds of Windsor Lodge.
Last night a spokesman for the Princess declined to comment.
