While Will and Kate's holiday romp through New York City was quick and relatively uneventful (they didn't even go to Shake Shack), a new crew of royals is returning for spring: Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson and her daughters. A Page Six spy overheard that the duchess and princesses Beatrice and Eugenie of York are all "back in New York to live for a while," perhaps to film The Real Princesses of NYC, an unfortunately fictional Bravo show that we would totally watch.
The trio were spotted having a "celebratory" lunch at midtown Tuscan spot Fresco by Scotto on Monday in honor of Eugenie's 25th birthday and the arrival of their mother from London. Princess Beatrice has lived in the city since last month, when she enrolled in a finance course, while Eugenie has been working for online auction house Paddle8 (co-founded by designer Misha Nonoo's husband) since 2013. But seriously, Bravo—we're waiting.
