Princess Eugenie of York returned to Instagram for the first time since her dad Prince Andrew gave an explosive interview about his involvement with serial pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
The 29-year-old royal posted a photo commemorating two years since she announced her engagement to new husband Jack Brookshank. "On this day two years ago... Jack and I announced we were engaged," she captioned the image.
Eugenie wisely followed the advice of her grandmother Queen Elizabeth, 93, who favors waiting at least 5 years before making life-altering decisions, such as marriages or divorce.
Eugenie and Jack, 33, dated for 7 long years before they tied the knot in October 2018.
Eugenie's father Prince Andrew, 59, gave an explosive interview to BBC about his ties to Epstein last November.
Andrew denied sleeping with underage girls during his frequent visits to Epstein's multi-million dollar Manhattan townhouse and trips on Epstein's infamous "Lolita Express."
The Queen was so disturbed by the whole sordid scandal that she ordered Andrew to step back from his royal duties and banished him from the Palace.
Andrew released a statement saying the scandal "has become a major disruption to my family's work and the valuable work going on in the many organizations and charities that I am proud to support."

Both Eugenie and her older sister Princess Beatrice have maintained low profiles since her father shamed the Royal Family. Eugenie (left) and Beatrice are pictured with their dad, Andrew, at the wedding of their cousin, Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011.
Eugenie and Beatrice's cousin, Prince Harry, married an American divorcee, Meghan Markle, after just two years of dating.
After 19 months of marriage, Meghan convinced Harry to quit his royal duties and move with her to Canada to lead self-centered celebrity lifestyles.
Harry defied his grandmother's advice by rushing into a quickie marriage with Meghan in May 2018.

Britain's Prince Andrew has stepped back from his Royal duties after a series of damaging revelations about his close friendship with American pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Prince Andrew was accused of being a part of Epstein's child sex ring.
Epstein, who was charged with multiple counts of child molestation and human trafficking, hanged himself in a Manhattan jail cell in August.
Prince Andrew's problems began when a photo leaked that showed the Duke of York embracing one of Epstein's young victims. The image was reportedly taken at Epstein's infamous NY townhouse at 9 East 71st Street years ago.
Initially Prince Andrew denied knowing Epstein. Then, after the photo leaked, he claimed the image was Photoshopped and that wasn't his hand around the young lady's waist. But photo experts analyzed the image right down to the pixels - and determined the photo was not Photoshopped.
In a recent interview with the BBC about his friendship with Epstein, Prince Andrew claimed amnesia, saying he didn't recall taking a photo with the young girl.
In the interview, which aired Saturday, Andrew denied having sex with Virginia Giuffre, the girl in the photo.
Giuffre claims she had sex with Andrew three times in 2001 at Epstein's properties.
Prince Andrew announced he was stepping back from public duties for the "foreseeable future."
"It has become clear to me over the last few days that the circumstances relating to my former association with Jeffrey Epstein has become a major disruption to my family's work and the valuable work going on in the many organizations and charities that I am proud to support," Andrew said in a statement. "Therefore, I have asked Her Majesty if I may step back from public duties for the foreseeable future, and she has given her permission."
