Britain's Princess Eugenie, daughter of the Duke and Duchess of York and granddaughter of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, was the latest in a line up of high profile guests visiting Phuket over the Easter holiday weekend.  

The princess was rumoured to be staying at a ten pound a night back packer hostel after flying out economy class to the island.

During her trip she and four friends were invited for lunch and a scenic boat trip around Phang Nga Bay by Gulu Lalvani, the developer behind Royal Phuket Marina and a close friend of the British Royal family.  Phang Nga bay is renowned for the iconic James Bond Island which featured in the 'Man with the Golden Gun' with Roger Moore, as well as Phi Phi Island which appeared in the film The Beach, starring Leonardo Di Caprio.

Royal Phuket Marina has become a magnet for the world&rsquos celebrities and socialites looking to escape the limelight and enjoy the idyllic lifestyle of Phuket.  Gulu Lalvani recently welcomed tennis star Martina Navratilova while his Christmas guest list included Hong Kong entrepreneur and Shanghai Tang founder Sir David Tang, model Kate Moss, British heiress and fashion icon Daphne Guinness, London property tycoon Nick Candy, Louis Vuitton CEO Yves Carcelle and Japanese designer Kenzo.

The princess also let her hair down during a night out at a local bar.  It was reported by The Sun newspaper that the Princess had danced on tables and downed beer laced with ketchup during a wild night out in Surin Beach.

The party loving royal, nineteen, apparently guzzled the sauce concoction for an Easter bet with friends.

An onlooker on the holiday island of Phuket said:''The Princess was with a couple of girls and a guy. One of her friends squirted some ketchup into a glass of beer and challenged her to drink it. They all fell about laughing as Eugenie swigged it.''
