Princess Eugenie isn’t keeping a low profile at Art Basel Miami — despite her father’s explosive scandal.
On Wednesday Page Six reported that Prince Andrew’s daughter — who’s an exec at art gallery Hauser & Wirth — was at the fair for work. That evening she was spotted at a Dom Pérignon-fueled bash called “The Last Supper” at hotelier Alan Faena’s mansion. The princess, who was seen at the art fair Wednesday afternoon, spent her time with a group of pals by the pool sipping drinks and taking a puff of a cigarette.
“She wasn’t being wild or anything, no one really noticed her. She seemed to be having a nice time chatting with her friends,” said a spy. “At one point Paris Hilton joined their group,” they added. “At some point bodyguards blocked off her area, but for most of the night, her space was free to any revelers.”
Sean Penn, Lenny Kravitz, Len Blavatnik, Tommy Hilfiger and wife Dee enjoyed dinner before a party kicked off with Rosario Dawson (who is set to join her boyfriend Cory Booker on the campaign trail), Jayma Cardoso and more. Diplo played by the pool for hours, though most guests seemed oblivious to his presence, aside from a few models spotted bringing him drinks.
Andrew is currently embroiled in a scandal involving pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. He’s been pulled from public duties by Queen Elizabeth, following a TV interview last month in which he attempted to defend his friendship with the convict. Virginia Giuffre — Epstein’s alleged sex slave — claims she was forced to have sex with Andrew when she was just 17, which he denies. He could face both civil and criminal charges in the US.
Reports have said Eugenie’s royal sister Beatrice has been “in tears” over the fallout from her father’s recent disastrous TV interview.
