By blood, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie of York are unmistakably royalty, but when it comes to their fashion sense, the comments are rather polarizing. What could be the reason for the two princesses’ unusual taste in wardrobe?

“Commoners” at Quora were able to plot the trajectory of their wardrobes through a lot of internet research. “I believe it began when they turned up at the wedding at the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in Aprill 2011 ... the minute they stepped out of the car at Westminster Abbey the internet went into overdrive and this picture went viral,” user Scarlett P Bassett wrote.

The photo she was talking about was the infamous meme of them dressing like Cinderella’s stepsisters, Anastacia and Drizella, while Prince William and Kate Middleton looked strikingly like Prince Charming and Cinderella herself, respectively. Bassett noted that the princesses were dressed “very traditional but sometimes quite frumpy.”

“Neither has the slim svelte figure that so many fashionable clothes are designed for and they don’t have the natural eye to see that a lot of what they wear doesn’t really suit them,” another user, Mickie Southam, posted. “I think they are both attractive young women who just haven’t found their own individual personal styles yet,” she hopefully surmised.

Others have also harped on their association with their mother, Sarah Ferguson, who the royal family isn’t too fond of either. “Their dress sense comes directly from their mother,” Graham Short wrote.

A source meanwhile pitied the sisters and the public pressure placed on them in an interview on People. The source said that the expectation of becoming role models is the hardest since the constant criticism about their weight, fashion and career choices “has always been hard for them to swallow.”

Even before they were born, they have already been on the constant watch of every follower of the royal family. They also want to live like “human beings” who do things that normal people do, the insider added. “They are independent, working women but are also aware of their position and where they can help,” the source concluded.
