When you're in line to the throne, you're generally expected to toe that line. But the more people there are ahead of you, the closer to normal you get to be.
Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie of York are seventh and eighth in line, soon to be eighth and ninth following the birth of their cousin Prince William's third child, and they've been allowed more freedoms for being further down that royal ladder.
Which isn't to say, however, that Queen Elizabeth II's granddaughters—the daughters of her third-eldest child, Prince Andrew, and his ex-wife Sarah, Duchess of York (aka the original Fergie)—haven't been immersed in royal duties, or haven't been enjoying the creature comforts that come with being HRH. Rather, though they're certainly in the public eye and Eugenie's just-announced engagement will be of utmost interest to folks in the U.K. and beyond, they may be the living definition of what it means to have the best of both worlds.
