    Default Princess Eugenie's first 'official' Royal engagement

    After a night spent partying with friends and drinking champagne, Princess Eugenie was on Royal duty today to open a new teenage cancer unit.
    The visit to the facility at St James's Hospital in Leeds was her first "official" engagement, as she accompanied her mother, the Duchess of York.
    Showing no ill effects of the previous night which ended in the small hours, Eugenie, 18, took a tour of the Teenage Cancer Trust Unit - which will bring hope to hundreds of people her age.

    The Princess and her mother laughed and chatted with patients as they viewed the rooms which were designed with young people in mind including a chill out zone with computer games and a music room.
    The Duchess of York is a patron of the Teenage Cancer Trust and was keen for her daughter to see the good work they do.

    Speaking after her tour with a remarkably chipper Princess Eugenie, the Duchess said: "Being a parent to two young girls, this charity has a particular place in my heart and I am delighted to be here today to open the new Teenage Cancer Trust Unit at St James's Hospital.
    "The facilities on offer are just fantastic and will undoubtedly help young people from across Yorkshire through a very difficult time."

    All in all, it was a remarkably professional performance from Princess Eugenie, who seems to have been out partying all summer.
    Last night, the occasion that lured her out onto the town again, was a party to celebrate the 2.5m relaunch of Movida nightclub.
    A source said: 'She was sitting with a male chum and a group of other friends. They were all having a great time, dancing and laughing.'
    But the fun came to an abrupt halt when Eugenie tried to get herself a drink.
    The source continued: 'Eugenie and her chum were trying to open a bottle of champagne together, but obviously don't have too much experience - the bottle exploded, covering their friends and other clubbers in bubbly.
    'Some people looked really angry, and when a bouncer went to tell them not to do it again, Eugenie hid behind her friend like she was still at school.

    'No-one minded too much, and they were soon dancing again.'
    Eugenie is a regular weeknight clubber - usually at Boujis, Kitts and Whisky Mist - definitely giving her the title of the party princess.
    However, despite being sixth in line to the throne, Eugenie hardly puts on any airs and graces.
    She was dancing with friends outside the VIP area while Paris Hilton demanded her own VIP spot and was surrounded by four bodyguards.
    Although Eugenie also had a bodyguard somewhere in the club, he was being more discreet than Paris's people - naturally!

    Why did they start the article with "after a night spent partying with friends and drinking champagne, Princess Eugenie was on Royal duty today to open a new teenage cancer unit" and go on and on about her being out clubbing lots?

    Seems like a petty dig - like the Mail is being all "Sure, she's visiting cancer patients, but remember... she likes partying and even drinks alcohol! So don't start thinking she's just a normal decent person doing a nice thing!"
