Princess Eugenie has been slammed by her followers over a grammar mistake made in her latest post to Instagram.
The newly married royal, 29, who is ninth in line to the throne, took to her profile on Thursday in aid celebrate her older sister, Beatrice, 30 on the National Sibling’s Day
Princess Eugenie of York shared two pictures of the siblings – one on her wedding day as Beatrice helped her into the wedding car, and another of them lying in the grass together.
Alongside the sweet pictures, wrote: ‘Happy National Siblings Day… and to my big sister, your the best especially when helping me and my dress into the getaway car. #nationalsiblingday’ (sic).
However followers were quick to point out that the correct grammar would have been ‘you’re the best’.
Many more wrote: ‘You’re not your. Ugh’, while one said: ‘Seriously English language mistakes from English royalty? They can’t be making such tiny errors. Reflects badly on them. Nobody can for that matter.’
Another added: ‘It’s a primary school level mistake which adults with a degree shouldn’t really be making, we don’t need to try and argue that grammar is somehow irrelevant today. It’s not.
‘Writing is still how we communicate. Therefore meaning is important. But it doesn’t detract from the positive sentiments of the post. What a lovely gesture of her to make’, another said.
However others defended the Princess, with one writing: ‘Omg we get it, she used the wrong your / you’re’.
‘Even royals make spelling/grammar errors. We’ve all done it – let it go’, another said.
One added: ‘It is a beautiful photograph of you both. Such a wonderful day and you both looked amazing. Ignore the nit pickers correcting your grammar – predictive text strikes again.’
‘I’m sad that people are seeing a slight grammatical mistake and wish to comment more on that than how sweet this post is. It’s nice to find the positives in life, people, rather than always focusing on the negatives,’ a follower wrote.
The royal, who is patron of the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre, has previously spoken about how she sees the condition as an opportunity rather than a hindrance.
On a school visit in 2014, she told students: ‘Dyslexia is not a pigeonhole to say you can’t do anything.
‘It is an opportunity and a possibility to learn differently. You have magical brains, they just process differently.
‘Don’t feel like you should be held back by it,’ she told youngsters at the time.
