Princess Eugenie's godparents, including James Ogilvy, son of Princess Alexandra, attended her wedding.  But James was not accompanied by his wife Julia.

The couple, who divides their time between Cambridge/Nantucket in Massachusetts and Scotland, celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary in July.

In the spring of 2018,  Julia received a Master of Theological Studies from Harvard Divinity School.  She is back in the Cambridge area, where, according to her daughter, Flora's Instagram account, she is "staying on to support those in need of hope in times of imaginable suffering."   Julia is "underway with 400 hours of volunteering in hospital to give emotional support to people of all ages and backgrounds at the end of their lives."

The work is "challenging and painful," said Flora, who added: "that I am very proud to be her daughter."  She added that the "empathy and compassion" that her parents have "shown across their lives is their greatest achievement."
