Princess Eugenie revealed her favourite children’s book while appearing on Storytime with Fergie and Friends.

The 30-year-old Princess read ‘Guess How Much I Love You,’ by Sam McBratney on her mother’s YouTube channel on Saturday.

Sarah, Duchess of York, launched the series earlier this month as a way to keep ‘children entertained’ during lockdown amid the global coronavirus pandemic.

Eugenie appeared from the idyllic sweeping gardens of the Royal Lodge in Windsor, where it is believed she is isolating with her husband Jack Brooksbank and her mother.

Sitting on a swing emblazoned with her name, the Princess held up the front cover of the book while announcing, ‘So this is my favourite book.’

The granddaughter of The Queen then launched into an animated reading of the delightful children’s tale, about two hares who are trying to find new ways to measure how much they love each other.

The Princess excitably threw her arms wide when she came to the line, ‘I love you this much…’

A new reading of a children’s book is released each day on the channel at 4pm BST.

Sarah, Duchess of York kicked off the series on April 16, by reading the classic tale of Hairy Maclary by Lynley Dodd.

Other guests have included former TV presenter and creator of mindfulness app Happy Not Perfect, Poppy Jamie and actress and author Nanette Newman.

Sarah is an accomplished author who has written over 25 books.

These include several stories about Budgie the Little Helicopter, which were so popular, the character was used in an animated series in 1994.

She recently signed a seven-book deal with Australian publisher Serenity Press.

The former wife of Prince Andrew recently told Royal Central many of the characters in her stories are inspired by members of her family.

Her latest creation, Genie Gems, was inspired by Princess Eugenie’s ‘passion for reducing the use of single-use plastics’.

She is also planning to base a character on her eldest daughter Princess Beatrice, in her next book which will be titled ‘Trixi-Belle’.
