Eugenie, Russell Brand a TV duo

Princess Eugenie is reportedly set to front a new TV show with Russell Brand.

The unusual pair, who were recently seen filming at Keats House Museum, in Hampstead, will examine perceptions of what is deemed upper or lower class pastimes in the upcoming series.

A source said: “Each episode will see them experience activities or places that are perceived as either high or low culture, but it’s going to be quite fun.

“One of the shows will feature Eugenie taking Russell to a polo game, while he is going to take her to dog racing.”

Eugenie – who turns 18 later this month – has reportedly been impressing the production team with her presenting skills. The insider added to the Daily Star: “Eugenie is a talented girl. She really sparkles in front of the camera.”

This is not Russell’s first interaction with the royal family.

Last December, he made Queen Elizabeth blush by boasting about his sexual prowess at the Royal Variety Show, before joking: “I am always respectful of the queen. When I lick a stamp, I always close my eyes!”

Russell also revealed he has got a soft spot for another royal, the queen’s 26-year-old granddaughter, Zara Phillips.
