It has been less than two months since she walked down the aisle to marry her long-term partner Jack Brooksbank at Windsor Castle in October, and it seems that the newlywed glow hasn’t worn off just yet for Princess Eugenie.
The Queen’s granddaughter beamed with happiness in a series of photos posted to her official Instagram page on Thursday as she posed alongside a number of British military veterans.
Eugenie attended an event to celebrate the centenary of the Royal Air Force Club where the princess met a number of war heroes, including former prisoner of war Air Commondore Charles Clarke.
Taking to social media, she wrote: “It was an honour to meet so many hero’s including Air Commodore Charles Clarke whose been a member since 1952 and was a prisoner of war in Stalag Luft III – the camp best known for the daring bid by allied POW’s which came to be referred to as the ‘Great Escape’.”
Last night I celebrated the Royal Air Force Club turning 100. It was an honour to meet so many hero’s including Air Commodore Charles Clarke whose been a member since 1952 and was a prisoner of war in Stalag Luft III – the camp best known for the daring bid by allied POW’s which came to be referred to as the ‘Great Escape’. @royalairforceclub
The young royal, who married tequila ambassador Brooksbank at St George’s Chapel on October 12, looked stunning in a patriotic red, white and blue striped dress as she stepped out for the special occasion. Eugenie looked stylish yet sophisticated in the silk shirt frock, which featured vertical stripes, a black belt tied around her waist and simple buttons down the front.

It is one of the princess’ few public appearances since her televised wedding, after she stepped out with her new husband last week to celebrate the 10th birthday of her mother’s charity Street Child.
The stunning royal, 28, was pictured in a figure-hugging ink blue Roksanda gown as she posed at the event in Kensington Palace, showing off her incredible figure and glowing complexion.
Earlier this year Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II shook hands with 101-year-old Jack Lyon, the last surviving ‘great escape’ survivor, as she celebrated 100 years of the RAF in Mayfair, London, in October.
The Queen stopped to speak to former flight lieutenant Lyon, who was one of 600 prisoners of war who helped to dig a 300ft network of tunnels before launching a spectacular escape bid from the Stalag Luft III POW camp, in Sagan, Germany, in March 1944.
Lyon, who was known as ‘Tiger’, was imprisoned at the camp when he was just 23, after his bomber crashed in Poland, and the veteran previously revealed how he was about to climb into one of the tunnels, when the plot was rumbled by the Luftwaffe.
