Princess Eugenie "wants people to know her" and not the misconceptions and hateful comments seen about her online.
"I want people to know me because I think there has been so much misinformation," the eleventh in line to the British throne told an outlet.
"Or, if you see a picture or a terrifyingly ugly photo of us coming out of a bar... The action shots that some people get — it's not the nicest photos. I have people come up to me sometimes and say, 'Oh, you are much better looking in real life'. Is that a compliment? I don't know," Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson's youngest child added.
"I do my own Instagram, and I find it the most stressful thing in the world. I get so nervous. Before I post, I have to text about five people, asking them if it's okay or if it's got a spelling mistake, am I going to get trolled? I wrote 'your' rather than you're. Then I had lots of people go, 'That's not how you say it,' and I freaked out, and it was just something so insignificant. Ever since then, I have been really particular about my spelling," Eugenie continued.
The princess is one of only a handful of British royals who actively engage with their social media accounts on a personal level. Many royals have official online accounts, but are those are solely used for official announcements and statements.
"I want to be respectful to the family I come from and the fact that I have a job as well as do my charity work, so I have got to find a really good balance," Eugenie said. "I also don't want to over-post my children, my family life, or anything like that. I am constantly finding a balance. It is really thought out in terms of 'Should I do this? Should I not?'
The mother-of-two continued: "I do get nervous, but I wanted people to see the real me and to know that I have a sense of humor and I take the mick out of stupid outfits we used to wear."
But despite the opportunity to help represent their family on a regional and international scale, both sisters are content with continuing their personal careers. The King has been reported to want a "slimmed-down Crown," even though his sister, Princess Anne, is on record stating it would likely not be a good idea.
