Princess Eugenie has graduated from university and spoken of the fun she had sharing a student house with seven girls.

Eugenie, 22, was awarded her 2:1 combined degree in English and history of art at Newcastle University in front of fellow students and their families.

Her father the Duke of York and older sister Princess Beatrice also attended the ceremony in the King's Hall, which was officially opened exactly 106 years ago by King Edward VII.

Afterwards, the beaming princess said: "I am so proud.

"Being up in Newcastle is just amazing. I had so much fun.

"Being in a house with seven girls was my highlight because you'd come back and there was always someone cooking, someone to welcome you.

"That was amazing just being in a house with all these wonderful people."
