Princess Eugenie has graduated from Newcastle 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 the 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.
She vowed she would maintain her links with the region.
"As we arrived (today) I got really sad and I thought 'I want to stay here for a while'.
"I will take away the amazing experience I had with my house, living there.
"I went to the Angel of the North which was incredible," she said.
"Everything up here is amazing."
