Britain's Princess Eugenie has graduated from university.
The 22-year-old royal - the daughter of the Duke of York and his ex-wife Sarah, Duchess of York - was presented with her 2:1 combined degree in English and History of Art at Newcastle University yesterday (11.07.12), and she revealed she had a fabulous time in the north eastern city.
She said: 'I am so proud. Being up in Newcastle is just amazing. I had so much fun. Being in a house with seven girls was my highlight because you'd come back and there was always someone cooking, someone to welcome you.
'That was amazing just being in a house with all these wonderful people.'
The Duke of York and Eugenie's sister Princess Beatrice attended the ceremony at King's Hall in Newcastle to see the princess awarded her degree.
Upon learning she had gained a 2:1 degree last month, Eugenie praised the university she studied at for helping her have an 'incredible' time.
She said in a statement: 'Newcastle University has given me such an incredible three years. I have had a wonderful time in the north east, learning and having a fantastic experience.
'The staff and tutors at Newcastle have guided me through my years there and given me great support. I am so lucky to have spent time there.'
