Princess Eugénie (Eugenia) died on April 29th 1889 and had been sickly all her life.

She probably did not attend the wedding of her neveu, but rather the groom's youngest brother Prince Euegène (Eugen), Duke of Närke, nowadays best known for his paintings and his villa at Djurgården (Valdemarsudde).
