The duchess tweeted a series of gushing posts last week when Eugenie’s forthcoming marriage to Jack Brooksbank was announced.

Her new message said: “You both exude kindness, love and goodness.

“You have beautiful manners and go the extra mile to all who meet you.

“I was so proud of your pure love and joy shining through the press and television on Monday.”
