The 18-year-old royal – a pupil at the elite Marlborough College in Wiltshire, England – was told yesterday (14.08.08) she had passed with A grades in Art and English Literature and a B in History of Art.

The princess’ parents, the Duke of York and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, said in a joint statement: “We are delighted by Eugenie’s achievements. She has worked extremely hard towards these justifiably fantastic results.”

Eugenie will now reportedly take a gap year, involving travelling and work experience, before going onto university – where it is believed the fashion-conscious teenager may take an Art foundation course.

Eugenie and her sister Beatrice – who sat her A-Levels last year and received one A grade and 2 Bs – fared better in their exams than their famous relatives.

Prince William received A, B and C grades, while his younger brother, Harry, got one B and one D.

Their father, Prince Charles, won a place at the prestigious Cambridge University despite getting one B and one C while his sister, Princess Anne, gained one D and one E.

Earlier this year, Eugenie was reprimanded by staff at her £23,000-a-year school after being caught frolicking naked in the grounds with other pupils.
