So, happy effin' holidays to me!!! I was sitting to refuel on a cupcake and hot tea (which I almost never eat) in soho and ended up sitting next to and chatting with Princess Bea!

She was here today. Boyfriend in tow. She is visiting her sister. I did not ask what she'd bought George! Dammit! We spoke about the hot chocolate, the cupcakes and she asked me who designed my boots! She also complimented my coat! I nearly melted into my teacup!

She's very lovely! I of course, had to pretend that I thought her to be just another Brit tourist!

I was not a huge fan of her ensemble. All black. Basic, fitted and short black puffer with light, seemingly faux ur-trimmed hood. Black, opaque tights and black suede wedge sneakers. What I did actually adore was her skirt! I was on the phone with my husband (damn him for calling with an important question at that moment!) whe. She got up or I'd asked her the designer of the skirt! The skirt was adorable and almost a stiff poplin with oodles of flounce, well above the knee.

Bea sounds lovely, far nicer than Wasty.

Saving green! Thrifty Princess Beatrice digs out her favourite dress she wore in Berlin last year for a charity gala in New York



Princess Beatrice repurposed a dress she was last seen wearing back in January for a charity gala in New York on Monday evening.
The 25-year-old and her royal sister, Princess Eugenie, 23, joined revellers at the Charity: Water Gala to benefit the organisation that aims to bring safe drinking water to every person on the planet.


Princess Beatrice and her businessman boyfriend Dave Clarke, 31, were among the 14 host committee chairs, which included Toms shoes founder Blake Mycoskie, for the event at the Duggal Greenhouse in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
The red-haired royal looked stunning in the green V-neck dress with a fitted, structured bodice and flared box-pleat skirt that fell to just above her knees and accentuated her tiny waist and slender figure.
She wore it the first time when she and Eugenie were in Berlin, the German capital, for the Great Campaign - a global initiative to attract visitors, businesses and students to the UK.

It's not just Kate Middleton who shops her closet - apparently Princess Beatrice does it too!

The 25-year-old royal attended the 8th annual charity: ball Gala at the Duggal Greenhouse in New York on Monday, wearing a dress she had already worn.

Princess Bea first sported the green Jonathan Saunders frock back in January when she and sister Princess Eugenie traveled to the Berlin British school and accessorized with a black belt, opaque tights and t-strap heels.

Kate has to be dragged into so many other royals doesn't she  :sigh: this is not the first article that mentions this woman's name with other royals doing their own thing

Princess Beatrice kicks back at the beach with friends as she enjoys New Year holiday in St. Barts with boyfriend Dave Clark

London may have celebrated in style when it welcomed 2014 on Tuesday night, but Princess Beatrice of York was the other side of the world when her beloved city embraced New Year.
That's because The Queen's granddaughter has spent her Christmas celebrations in the French West Indies resort of St.Barts with boyfriend Dave Clark.
In fact, as well as spending hours relaxing on the beach with their friends, the couple also spent their holiday on the luxury yacht of multi-millionaire steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal.


One of Britain's richest men, he has previously welcomed the likes of Sir Phillip Green and Jennifer Lopez onto his luxury liner. He is said to have a net worth of £16.5 billion.
Wearing a brimmed hat and a white smock, the royal redhead - who is the sixth, and first female, in the line of succession to the throne - was seen lounging on the beach with friends as she enjoyed the hot weather. 
Sporting a pair of over-sized sunglasses to protect her fair skin, the 25 year-old looked positively conservative in contrast to her friends, who dared to bare much more flesh.

This isn't a holiday, but a lifestyle for Beatrice.

I don't care that she makes a lot of appearances, but these aren't exactly arduous.

Both Beatrice and Waity enjoy a lot of leisure time.  The difference is that Beatrice contributes to the RF and charities by making significantly more appearances and by behaving with dignity.  Her actions show the respect she has for HM.  I don't think its fair to say that Beatrice is lazy like Waity.


Title: Re: Princess Beatrice & Eugenie: News and Pictures II
Post by: Kuei Fei on January 02, 2014, 08:52:16 pm
In my view, she's doing her job, nothing more; it doesn't erase the fact that she is mainly jet setting around after a brief joke of a stint at a venture capital firm and it's not like she's doing anything groundbreaking. She could do more for the RF if so inclined and I don't view her as extraordinary. Kate did the same, a handful of engagements and jet setted from there on out. Beatrice should in my view be making a future for herself outside of doing any duties and start building her own money.


Title: Re: Princess Beatrice & Eugenie: News and Pictures II
Post by: CathyJane on January 02, 2014, 10:14:46 pm
I wonder if one reason Beatrice and Eugenie don't have normal jobs is that Liz is trying to push the rest of her family to the fore with engagements etc since the heir's heir and his wife don't seem to want to do anything at all. Sophie and the York girls keep the monarchy in the news with good press instead of scandals like W&W.

As for building their own wealth, both of these girls will inherit a great deal of money from the Queen. Andrew is her favorite child and these 2 girls are probably her 2 favorite grandchildren.

^^^KF, just because there isn't ongoing press coverage of Beatrice's job doesn't mean she isn't working.  Unless you can point me to a credible article saying she is no longer working or it is now part time, I'll continue to assume she is working.  Which is more than Waity has ever done.

Post by: cate1949 on January 02, 2014, 10:54:05 pm
she left her finance job and she has not gotten a new job.  This summer there was an article in the DM I think criticizing her for not working at a job.

I think PA is fighting to keep his and his daughters place in the family - when that sort of stuff blew up was when Bea stopped working at the finance job and started doing more royal engagements.  So I wonder if PA has not gotten Bea to do this to cement their position in the family.

Bea and Eugenie certainly will inherit from the Queen but that could be many years from now and they aren't getting houses at Sandringham etc.  PW will be getting the most - even Harry is not as well off as PW.

Post by: Kuei Fei on January 02, 2014, 11:28:44 pm
The Queen will leave them a lot, but likely Charles will be in charge, whip his heir into shape, and then the Yorks might not get what they hope for since Charles will be in charge and the Yorks do not have a good reputation. Charles could point out that the Yorks are basically freeloading and Beatrice can do all the engagements in the world, but it won't make it right. Beatrice is likely betting on a future that might not happen. Like Kate, Beatrice is cementing a place, but if she does, it does not mean that she will be useful and it's likely that she's going to end up not doing much either way. She's a jet setting freeloader and Kate does the same; Kate lives off of Charles and William and does more jet setting than she does work and Beatrice lives off of Andrew and (somewhat) Charles and HM; Beatrice quit a job she held for a while and hasn't gotten anything new and frankly she's freeloading off of rich 'friends' who would have nothing to do with her if she were not a royal.

Beatrice and Eugenie do not attend royal events. The trip to Germany was not considered to be made in the name of the Queen. If anything they are patrons of a couple of charities and attend private events at BP with the Queen. That's it.

Bea and Eugenie are going to forever be held as guilty because of the parents.  While it is nice to see them doing charity work, I really think they are just like the others in their aristo set.  They hang around until a proposal or something they deem is suitable to their social standing comes along.  However, for these two what would that be?  Without the RF connection they would not be in the jobs they are in.  JMHO

I like both of the York girls - Bea especially seems to be very personable and effective in her charity work.  But I agree with the points being made here - the further away from the throne you are - the less relevant.  Look at the whole crew that lives at KP - all grandsons or great grandson of the former King - and they live at the largesse of the Queen.  They lived nicely in those grace and favor apartments but once the government demanded they pay market price for their apartments - boom - the Kents had to sell their country home and now Princess Michael is out hawking a book and working as a decorating consultant to rich Russians.  Bea and Eugenie need something of their own.

Post by: Kuei Fei on January 03, 2014, 03:51:10 am
Eugenie and Beatrice need to stop acting like there will be a position for them. As it is, there is less demand for royalty to do things for charities. When Charles takes the throne I am certain that Andrew and Fergie will lose the free ride HM has given them and I am sure he (Charles) will work on getting rid of Fergie once and for all. I will never believe that Charles likes Fergie's attachment to the RF and I'm sure William resnets how his cousins don't have half his pressures and get to have more fun. Beatrice and Eugenie were never tasked with reforming the monarchy.

My criticism has nothing to do with Fergie and Andrew; the real problem is how they are apparently so sure that life will work out for them in one way or another. I'm certain that in these unstable times, living life thinking that it'll all work out is in fact a bad plan. A 'suitable' type might not come along and want them and it's likely that sooner or later there will be another politician who will streamline the perks the RF still has. Who thought that HM would lose her yacht? Eugenie is enjoying NY, but what if the gallery owner decides that Eugenie isn't doing diddly and decides to toss her off? Or if a 'suitable' type never comes along? A man supporting a princess in a style she's used to is a rare type since lately, few men want to really pay through the nose and possibly to support a domineering mother who also leeches. Like in Japan, these princesses need to be trained to be ready for real life.

Tender is the night: Princess Beatrice looks slender in an LBD as she parties until 5am with boyfriend Dave Clark


While her mother is making headlines for her weight loss efforts, Princess Beatrice appears to have got it sussed.
The redheaded royal looked super slender in an LBD as she trawled around St. Barts on New Year's Eve with a group of friends.


Beatrice looked chic in the LBD as she rung in the New Year with her boyfriend Dave Clark partying in Saint Barts until 5am.
The couple enjoyed fireworks on a luxury boat before hitting several private parties until morning, a source told MailOnline.
Clearly possessing plenty of stamina, despite her busy job in the US, the happy couple were strolling - by night in Saint Barts harbour before returning to their boat in the wee hours.
The Queen's granddaughter has spent her Christmas celebrations in the French West Indies resort with Clark.

Bea and Eugenie will get a lifetime lease right on the Royal Lodge, that was announced a while back.

KF, Bea and Eug already have their suitable partners, of quite longstanding.  And they are both pretty rich, so the girls don't have to worry in that dept.

I checked - Bea and Eugenie both have million (one) pound trust funds as part of the divorce settlement - so good for Fergie she made sure her daughters got something.  But - they get the interest - which amounts to plenty for a normal person - but not much for them. 

And - Bea is now in Aspen skiing with the rich and famous - Sam Branson, Holly Branson and her hubby Freddie.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2532893/RICHARD-KAY-Busy-Beatrices-hectic-holidays.htmlhttp://


Kay's article is pointed - Bea is vacationing a lot  and does not work.  Granted she gets no royal salary nor security - but appearances matter especially nowadays - a Princess who is seen as a jet setting socialite is not good for appearances.  Especially since Eugenie has a job.  One also wonders just how much work Dave does since he is usually traveling with her - he works for Virgin Space.

Her personal trainer explains why: hard work.

"She is super fit and very dedicated," trainer Nadya Fairweather tells PEOPLE. "We train whatever the weather and she never cancels – she's pretty hardcore."

 After some unflattering bikini pictures of the princess were published in 2009, Beatrice (Bea to her friends) contacted Fairweather after a recommendation from her boyfriend Dave Clark.

How silly; HM and the RF will make sure that the princesses don't starve and as for 'not much for them' (I'm not picking at you, just the sentiment) these princesses had better adjust their expectations and end up making their way in the world or become the users the RF supposedly so despises if they want to lead a regal lifestyle.

I think that like Kate, Dave's real job is to snag that royal connection down the aisle and burnish Branson as one of the best connected in the world to the royal scene. As for Beatrice, well, she's decided what her life will be like and she's made her choices. I only view Beatrice as betting that she's going to get a full official position as a royal princess.

If the RF "firm"  continues on for the next 25 years, then Beatrice will be needed as an official princess because there won't be enough people to operate the firm in the way it is now.

At least she has done some work, used her degree, avoids scandal, and carries herself with dignity, which is more than can be said for the pathetic wife of her cousin.

Post by: cate1949 on January 13, 2014, 12:07:32 am
I used to be impressed by the York sisters but the more I see about them - the less impressed I am.

Eugenie is in NYC now - she is always in the news hanging around with celebs - pop stars and TV stars.  She is in NYC where she could be meeting all sorts of people with tons of influence in the world - and she hangs with pop stars.  I do not think she deserves credit for having a job - she should have a job.  She also always is pictured with this sour puss face which does little to make her appear likeable or friendly.

Bea - is not using her degree - unless jet setting requires a degree.  Being better than Kate is not exactly a high standard - on the list of royal appearances she is just above Kate - and well below everyone else.  She flits around the world from one posh spot to another using her royal connections for freebies with her BF of 7 years.  Her life is one vacation after another with the occasional charitable appearance thrown in.  She sponges off of her royal connections for freebies just like her mother.  She does not work - she has not worked since she quit her job over a year ago.  I do not find her admirable.

Post by: Spice on January 13, 2014, 09:20:48 am
Maybe you need to re-read my post, where I never said I find her admirable, and where I clearly used past tense in referring to her work, being well aware that she no longer has that job.

The fact that she hasn't scandalised the RF counts for a lot in my book.  I find it refreshing to know that one or two young royals can be relied upon to act with dignity, when Kate, Wimpo, and Harry have all done otherwise, repeatedly.

EXCLUSIVE: That's entertainment! Princess Beatrice enters showbiz as she takes up an internship at Sony - after not working since last summer

Princess Beatrice is entering the world of entertainment – and has taken up an internship at Sony Pictures Television, MailOnline can reveal.

The 25-year-old daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson has not worked since last summer when she quit the investment capital firm where she had been working for a year.

Since then, she has been a dedicated traveller and saw in 2014 aboard the yacht of billionaire steel tycoon Lakshmi Mittal in St Barts with boyfriend Dave Clark – followed by a trip to Aspen, America’s chicest ski resort.

But flame-haired Beatrice has now started work experience at Sony Pictures Television at its London headquarters, run by President of International Production, Andrea Wong.

I just think people need to let this Beatrice and Eugenie situation go. Everyone's entitled to their opinion, don't get me wrong. So if you think they aren't admirable or wasting their time, fine, but nothing trumps the pure fact that neither of these girls are beholden to the 'The Firm' and the British Public aren't footing the bill for them, so they have every right to jet set, hang with celebrities or whoever else, vacation, travel, island hop, party, etc. as much as they want. They are now, basically, private citizens and are completely entitled to live their life the way a lot of the other trust fund babies are living theirs.

Quote
At least she has done some work, used her degree, avoids scandal, and carries herself with dignity, which is more than can be said for the pathetic wife of her cousin.

I agree and quite frankly them avoiding scandals is all we can hope for.

Quote
If the RF "firm"  continues on for the next 25 years, then Beatrice will be needed as an official princess because there won't be enough people to operate the firm in the way it is now.

It's very probable that in that time Beatrice and Eugenie won't want to come back and be official princesses. As long as they walk a straight line & don't blow through their money, they should be set and won't want to come back after living a life of freedom.

Congrats to Bea on her new internship.

Going once, going twice: A new job for Eugenie as the NY-Lon Princess

Eugenie will become a £25,000-a-year benefit auctions manager with Paddle8.

The firm, which is backed by Damien Hirst, specialises in dealing with works by artists such as Jeff Koons and Banksy.

The Princess initially joined the company last September on a three-month placement.

But the stint was deemed such a success that she returned to the Big Apple after Christmas to take up a permanent position.

During her initial spell at Paddle8, Eugenie was involved in an auction of some of Koons’s work.

The event was known as ‘the X-rated sale’ because of its explicit content.

‘The plan was to spend three months in New York and see how it went,’ says a pal.

‘But Eugenie has been a big  success and they wanted her to stay so she’ll now be there until at least September.’

A spokesman for Paddle8 said: ‘I can confirm that Eugenie will continue to work in New York.’

RW, I agree; let her set up her own place in Britain, we have Americans that need jobs and opportunities. Eugenie never should have gotten that internship, much less a full paying job after just three months when there are plenty of Americans who need and want these positions, who genuinely want to work as well.

Eugenie didn't work and study for this and frankly she doesn't strike me as dedicated. She's flying all the time to London.

I've wondered that too RoyalWatcher but kept the comment to myself...she's a Princess of the UK and should show more interest in her economy than of the USA that goes for the same as the Swedish Princess that married a US citizen

there are so many people in the USA unemployed it's not even funny and to have the government allowing aliens into the country to take jobs away isn't ok to me...that's for any country really...unless your qualified and have trained in a certain field and they're aren't many in it...then that's understandable...but to be just allowed into a country to look good because your a Princess isn't ok but again that's just my personal view on this whole Eugenie working in NY

^
The job at NY-Lon is definitely one where her connections to the owners made all the difference.  It is a US offshoot of a company that already exists in London, I think, and owned/run by an aristo.  So I really do not think there was going to be an American in that position.  I would agree with some of the ideas on immigration but closing the borders in my opinion would probably hurt more.  We have a very uneducated workforce now, the educated workforce we had is now aging and getting ready to retire.  Also, the price of education, along with the downturn in the economy, it is a perfect storm and I really cannot see making PE a poster child for it.  Now if she had taken a job as an engineer or some other, definitely American hire type job, absolutely, but she is working a vanity job and if she is anything like Bea she will not stay.  We need to deal with the illegal immigration in this country before stopping those who really would contribute.  We send plenty of our own overseas for internships and jobs.  We could argue this all day.  Back on topic.  I *despise* to say it but I do not see the Yorks are truly wanting to be employed in any job other than collecting flowers and cutting ribbons.  Chuck-Wagons idea of downsizing the monarchy and having already lazy individuals currently selected to do the work of several people is not going to cut it.  I suspect these gals are just waiting for the call to say, "Aw, Uncle has a job for you afterall"  The more I see of these people the more I just feel like it is one big scam.

In some ways I think these two gals must think to themselves, "well this sucks" if this had been 20 or so years ago, the economy was better and they had better parents (okay this is not their fault) they might be able to have landed those ribbon cutting jobs, wear pretty dresses and collect flowers a few days of the week and then spend the rest shopping and going on vacation.  Now I think, from reading so many of the comments, people do not want to support two girls they do not see as worthy.  They are on the same parallel as their Bill and Red, they go to the nightclubs, the drink until their eyes go crisscross and they vacay a lot.  Because of the Twitter, FB generation we are seeing photos of them doing things that would have been unheard of for the Queen as a young girl, even Diana had to be caught by a photographer, the cell phone cameras were barely getting started.  If they really wanted a job they would have already buckled down.  I still think this is a vanity job.  I think PE looks at her life and circumstances and thinks, "well, I may have to get a job but at least it will have an aura of glamour", well she hit the jackpot on that one.  I think they are two princesses who feel like getting a job is really not their "thing" watch this space.  JMHO  :dontknow: :dontknow: :dontknow: :dontknow: :dontknow:

Oh and I think a couple of other royals who lived in NY maybe Pierre Casiraghi, or maybe it was school, Lady Gabriella Windsor is going to Brown (or maybe she has finished)

LOL - ^ good point about what life for a royal was like 20 years ago - recall when PC was adamantly opposed to any Royal having a real job?  Times have changed.  While there is no doubt we see a lot of privileged behavior in both young women - I do suspect Eugenie is genuinely interested in her career - she started working right out of school - did her internship at a auction house (Christie's??)  I am sure she sees with her Mom's history the need for a back up plan if things go awry for her.  She does act like someone who has a plan.  I have reservations about the York sisters - but she has shown initiative and she is working.

As for unemployment in the US - seriously - as if no Americans work in other countries that also have high unemployment?

The Yorkies are the type that (to me) are riding the gravy train as much as they can. Beatrice is eager to be HM's 'helper,' which is her way of insinuating herself into the life of cutting ribbons and living a posh life and Eugenie isn't really working in New York, I suspect she's trying to land herself a rich man to live off of for the rest of her life.

That neither of the girls has shoved Fergie off is enough to give me pause.

I agree KF...I read an article about a man who served 22 years in the Royal forces in the UK now that he has retired his Canadian wife and children are being sent back to Canada because he is no longer in the Military

Too bad he wasn't granted citizenship or the right to stay for the rest of his natural life, along with a generous pension.

You are right about that, for Americans to migrate to the countries they like to migrate to: mainly Japan and other major European centers, they need to be qualified, otherwise they won't be able to immigrate (to Japan especially. By the way, that Japanese standard applies to all Westerners).  However, to migrate to other countries like S. American countries and minor Asian (there are a lot of Americans working in Dubai in the casinos) countries is fairly easy for them. And Americans do it all the time.  There are a lot of Americans working in the tourist industry in S. American countries (getting paid way more than the locals) with no other qualification than an american passport (By the way, this applies to a lot of Europeans too). Not that there is anything wrong with that, if they get hire because they speak English and Spanish/Japanese (which is usually the reason they are hired) and they can do the job well, why not?
Let them work.

The thing with Eugene is that, like others have pointed out, her job is about connections.  And it is also a vanity job, I agree. It is not a job that would have gone to and average American anyways.

And most of the European (and I think some Africans too) royals in NY are in the financial and the fashion industry.  Now those jobs should be given to Americans. American business schools are overflowing with talent, as a matter of fact, they are world leaders in finance.  Many Europeans prefer to go to American business schools, that is not a secret to anyone.

We see her out and about in heels, short skirts, and stockings and this alone tells me she's not in a gallery working on he hands and knees or adjusting portraits. How many unknown artists has she researched and contacted? That is what I would like to know myself before I admire her.

From the sound of it, she's going to galas, flying to London half the time, and mainly enjoying the New York nightlife. She's not living with other students and she's certainly not liekly socializing with them after work hours. There is no way she should be getting 50k a year, I know that much. Frankly I don't think she should get more than something each month since she's only there on a trial basis, after just three months. So far she hasn't working on setting up galas or anything interesting.


Title: Re: Princess Beatrice & Eugenie: News and Pictures II
Post by: cate1949 on January 29, 2014, 04:19:08 am
she isn't working at a gallery - she is working for an online internet auction company - I am going to guess she is mostly doing marketing or accounting?  She did not study IT so she isn't involved in that.  Maybe the graphic for how the stuff is displayed on the webpages?  At 50,000 is sounds more like the salary of someone who answers phones and gets coffee!


She has been photographed with a few B list TV type actresses and sports figures - some music artists etc - and she did attend this big society fund raiser with Bea - the Water Ball.  Otherwise the pics of her in the NYC papers like the Post or the NYDaily News have been with her parents.

Maybe I am being unfair - but I see both Bea and Eugenie as being caught up in their parents plots and schemes - part of the ongoing RF plots and schemes about money, housing and status.  Most observers and writers about the RF will comment about the intense rivalries, jockeying for position, and competition among those lesser ( not Charles or his kids) royals for the crumbs left over after PC and his get theirs.  Bea and Eugenie look to be playing that game too - perhaps again I am being unfair -but I think the evidence is there.


Title: Re: Princess Beatrice & Eugenie: News and Pictures II
Post by: Kuei Fei on January 29, 2014, 05:25:39 am
I think Beatrice and Eugenie are indeed playing games and determined to get some kind of security before the chop falls from Charles. They're not ingenues or innocents; no one in that family is and I do not think that Beatrice and Eugenie are unaffected by the reality that Charles wants to put an end to their posh lifestyle. Eugenie is determined to fix her brother up with a friend and is apparently determined to see that through and Beatrice is merrily enjoying the luxe lifestyle unashamedly.

Cigarette in hand, standing next to Elvis's granddaughter: Are Eugenie and her pals REALLY visiting a strip joint in Soho?

With its gaudy neon signs advertising the sleazy adult entertainment within, this looks like just the sort of seedy Soho dive that Royalty should steer well clear of.

But here Princess Eugenie happily poses for a photograph alongside the bright lights advertising ‘Girls, Girls Girls’ at a peep show in the heart of London’s notorious sex trade district.

Thankfully, however, all is not quite what it seems. This is no sordid strip club, but modern art outside a trendy Mexican restaurant paying tribute to the area’s infamous past.

Pictured alongside the granddaughter of the Queen is the granddaughter of The King – Elvis Presley’s relative Riley Keough, 24 – plus Eugenie’s childhood friend, Grace O’Leary, who now works in a London talent agency.

The photograph, which shows Eugenie in a smart suit and smoking a cigarette outside La Bodega Negra, is believed to have been taken last summer, and has just been posted on Facebook.

Why would she do it for free? Isn't this a for-profit?  We can call it business ambassador, they can call it new hire-intern-curator whoever-that's their prerogative. They are the ones signing the cheques and until they don't send her off, we can't say for sure that they mind.  Also, I just read that the founders of paddle 8 where actually school mates to Wills and Harry, so we can safely say that she didn't apply for that job, it was created for her.

She is a fan of wearing just one solid colour at red carpet events, and Princess Eugenie stuck to her rule again on Wednesday evening.
The 23-year-old showed just how to make a simple shift dress work for your shape when she attended amfAR's gala held at New York's Cirpriani Wall Street.
Keeping the rest of her outfit exceptionally simple, the seventh-in-line to the throne let her bright green number do all the talking.

Princess Beatrice is normally a fan of the little black dress, but she made a colourful appearance to the Creative London Party on Monday night.

The royal arrived in a bright floral skirt with a white blouse tucked in, metallic strappy courts and a purple clutch bag to the event hosted by the British Fashion Council, the British Academy of Film and Television and the British Recorded Music Industry.

And there she rubbed sartorial shoulders with people across film, fashion and music at Spencer House.

I do like the outfit Princess Bea is wearing although I don't care for the shoes

Princess Beatrice enjoys a date night at Mayfair restaurant... where she bumps into singer Ronan Keating
Beatrice dined with boyfriend Dave Clark at famous Nobu restaurant
She joined other high profile diners including Boyzone singer Ronan Keating
Princess looked chic in her signature black outfit with matching biker jacket


She has been a regular on the London social scene of late and it seems that rubbing shoulders with the great and the gorgeous has made sure Princess Beatrice has no fear about being star struck.
The Princess, 25, enjoyed a night out last night with boyfriend Dave Clark at famous Mayfair restaurant Nobu.
A notorious celebrity hangout, the young royal was at Nobu at the same time as singer Ronan Keating and friends but confident Beatrice seemed unfazed by the media attention, smiling for the waiting press as she exited the restaurant.

I think Charles knew about Beatrice a long time before we did (her real tendencies and luxury leeching lifestyle) and I respect how he wants to cut the Yorkies off and make them make their own way in the world (whether they like it or not). I don't think she's someone who is going to even be a good working royal. She's letting her personal life overshadow any real mark she might make. To her, London is all she needs and the rest of Britain and the commonwealth does not exist to her.

Like a lot of young people, she was reportedly apprehensive about leaving home.

But seven months after landing a position with a New York-based auction house, it looks as though Princess Eugenie has settled into the city - and her job - well.

On Friday the British royal was spotted walking with two friends in the East Village neighbourhood.

Eugenie, who is the second child and younger daughter of Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and Sarah, Duchess of York, was smiling happily as she chatted to her pals.

The 23-year-old looked chic in layers to keep warm on what was obviously a  chilly day, even though the snow that had blanketed New York for some weeks had thawed.

She wore a large black parka with a fur-trimmed hood over a light blue jacket and a black jumper. The princess showed off her legs in a black leather miniskirt, black opaque tights and matching low-heeled booties.

Princess Eugenie goes casual in a grey sweater and flats whilst out and about in New York

SHE may be royalty, but it seems that Princess Eugenie has completely adapted to life in New York City.


The 24-year-old was spotted enjoying the sunshine whilst out and about in Manhattan yesterday, and completely blended in with the New Yorkers thanks to her casual attire.

As she emerged from a restaurant, Eugenie kept her curvy frame covered up in a loose-fitting grey coat which she teamed with a matching sweater and a short black skirt.

Depsite the sunny weather, Eugenie was still feeling the New York chill and completed her look with a thick pair of opaque tights and black suede flats.

Princess Beatrice is known for her stylish fashion sense and did not disappoint when she was spotted at a fashion event on Thursday evening.

The 25-year-old stole the show at the launch of a new fashion blog in London store Fortnum & Mason with a very classy black and white ensemble.

She wore a tailored black blouse which cinched at her waist and paired it with a geometrically patterned black and white mini skirt, which showed off her slender pins.

the skirt is way to short for my liking on a Royal or even my daughter for that matter  :cookie:

The Duchess of Cambridge better watch out, there's another Royal keen to steal her style crown.
But while Kate prefers thrifty high street style, Princess Beatrice has been channeling a high fashion look of late.
Last night, the 25-year-old made sure all eyes were on her as she was seen leaving trendy new Marylebone eatery, the Chiltern Firehouse.

Eugenie and Bea have a problem buying clothes that fit them.  They are most often too tight.  And they clearly do not look in a full length mirror before leaving home.  This dress - while a nice color - is made of a clingy fabric that is the last type of fabric Eugenie should wear - for reasons obvious in the pics. 

On a positive note it was great of her to visit the hospital and the young people seem to be enjoying their visit with her.

I want one too! I didn't like it when it first came out though - I thought it'd be "over" after a season or two - but the longer it stayed around the more it grew on me. Never going to buy one though - I just know that by the time I've saved up enough it'd be out of fashion and some other It-bag will have taken its place, like the Chloe Paddington, remember that? No? Exactly  8)

But yes, Beatrice is really coming into her own. I think she's become more comfortable in her skin since losing weight - you can really see it in the way she carries herself nowadays. (Still can't figure out what she's working at/as now though - she just seems to be a professional party/launch attendee, like any other socialite.)

^^Sorry to be off topic but was just answering a member's question.  To answer yours going, again, off topic we, well, I continue to Believe whether that's based on reality or not.  It's an idea and an ideal that I believe most Americans have which makes for a different way of thinking.  In addition, we are extremely vocal with our points of view and pay more attention to politics than the rest of the world thinks. I discovered that on my many trips abroad.  This is a great, free country by comparison and that includes the UK.  That's just my view anyway.

Moving on or discuss in US thread and that goes for yours truly.  Thanks!

following in her father's footsteps. :bouncy:

The parental role models not up to snuff - although Eugenie seems to have found another way.  But then again - she also spends some of  her time trying to push Harry into the Cressie clan.

Beatrice is dressing better but since her Daddy needs his mother's money to buy Beatrice's fancy duds I am thinking she would be much better off finding a way to pay for her own stuff? 

Jane - if this is a "real" princess than Princessing is clearly all about unemployment, getting freebies from questionable folks ( vacations on Russian oligarchs yachts) jet setting and the occasional charity appearance.  So - yeah - a lot like Kate.

I wanna hold your hand! Princess Beatrice and her beau look loved-up on night out together

WHILE all eyes are on her cousin in New Zealand at the moment, Princess Beatrice enjoyed a low-key date night in London last night.


The 25-year-old royal was spotted looking very loved-up with her boyfriend Dave Clark as they enjoyed an evening at the Firehouse Club in Kensington.

Beatrice had certainly made an effort for the occasion and wore a long-sleeved black shirt dress which featured a pleated hem and a chunky waist belt belt.

She teamed the garment with a pair of thick black tights and patent heels, whilst carrying a patterned clutch bag

Sarah really has lost weight - she looks much better body shape wise - but she should cut the hair - her hair is not luscious - it looks thin and dry and drags her face down - a shorter bob with some curl in it would really liven her tired face up - take some years off

Whatever anyone says about the York girls they are not frightened to experiment with fashion. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not.


Bea got it right in this photo. Colour is so right for her.

Having a splashing time! Princess Beatrice and boyfriend Dave Clark have fun in the Caribbean sun in St Bart's

Chic in a stylish fedora hat and printed mini-dress from Zara, Princess Beatrice was the picture of sophistication as she relaxed on a yacht during an Easter break in the Caribbean.
The stylish royal arrived on Thursday night and joined her boyfriend Dave Clarke, 31, who had been enjoying a boy's holiday with friends.
But his antics, which included mooning at fellow beach goers, left the princess looking less than impressed and the pair were seen deep in conversation - with Mr Clark perhaps on the receiving end of a telling off.

Beatrice should stop dangling Dave and either commit or walk away. How long have they been together? Long enough to decide if she wants to have a commitment and certainly, she has no reason to really wait around for something better to come along. She might be royal, but that does not mean she's much of a catch otherwise.

Well, if he wants to commit and she doesn't, she should break it off, so she doesn't waste his time; yet, if she's waiting for something better to come along, then she might wait a very long time. Snotty as this sounds, Beatrice isn't such a great catch that she has options.

She's a princess, but a princess with a rep for being idle, lazy, also a moocher. She's not so hot that she can get away with it, along with the fact that she's showing a preference for a lifestyle where she will end up being able to spend freely and jet set freely without any interest in a genuine family life.

The way she's living her life isn't good at all and I have no idea how to fathom that Charles or William will let her freeload indefinitely. I mean, I think Charles is right to want to unload Andrew and the Yorkies (neither are really contributing to the FIRM) and I think William would be right to do the same.

Being royal is no longer enough these days and the BRF is no longer as prestigious as it used to be. So finding a rich man willing to support her lazy arse is not going to be easily done. I'm certain of it.

As for not wanting to get married, she might have millions now, but the future is never certain. Beatrice has really cheapened herself through her actions and it's a shame she isn't showing even the most basic respect for herself. She's right at the level she belongs.

I told you guys about her a long time ago, but you naughty girls didn't listen!

Truth be told, I think there is a similarity.

Beatrice isn't working and making the occasional appearance at a luxury launch doesn't count as work. Second, if you get rid of the lineage, yeah, there are similarities. So yeah, Beatrice is a lot like Kate, minus the need to social climb; her token Sony internship (remember that?) is where she is now apparently working (zero qualifications other than her grandmother) and a token degree from a posh university (I can't even remember what that was in).


Title: Re: Princess Beatrice & Eugenie: News and Pictures II
Post by: meememe on April 21, 2014, 05:33:16 am
Her degree is in History and History of Ideas. As someone with a degree is History I can assure that it is hard work - and for a dyslexic, as is Beatrice, even harder given the amount of reading involved.

As there has been no announcement to the contrary I assume she is still doing the internship at Sony - they can last for a year or so.

I think a lot of the problem for Beatrice is that she was raised to believe that she would be an integral member of the working family and it wasn't until she was close to leaving university that that situation changed. She reportedly sought both William and Harry's assistance in being allowed to do more for the Jubilee but they refused to help her.

Now if true it is possible that she didn't study the right subjects at school and uni to follow a career because she was led to believe that her future was different to what it turned out to be.

She has a number of patronages - more than Kate - and undertakes a number of activities for them without getting any credit by The Queen.

If my information and interpretation is correct she has been let down badly, not only by her parents, but also by the extended family in the timing of the advice they gave her about her future.

I hope she finds herself and a rewarding career as she has shown that she is keen to do the sort of work that the royals do - charity work - has run the London marathon for charity, climbed Mt Blanc for charity - and is criticised while Harry goes to the South Pole for charity or rides bikes across Africa and is praised for it.

I don't blame her for living her life her way when she has been rebuffed by her family when she asked to help.

When William is King and only has Kate, Harry and Harry's wife to do the work done now by 15 people (assuming he becomes King in the next 30 years and before George is ready to take on duties - and he can't be asked to start at an age younger than his parents now can he?) then it will come back to bite them on the bum that they have thrown out Beatrice.

I'd take Beatrice more seriously and with more empathy if she spent less time vacationing in the hot spots of the jet setting idle rich.

As for her belief she would be a full time royal - the government has  had enough of funding the extended royal family - after years of warnings - they finally cut the flow of coin.  Beatrice was hardly the only one so affected by this - think of the elderly extended RF who now have to make a living.  I do not think she was let down - she and her father act as if they were entitled to a freebie life on the taxpayer's money - that was never a noble or realistic plan for the future.  And it has been coming for many years.  As for Will and Harry - they  have not the power to reverse the governments insistence on a reduced royal family.  PC is acting on the pressure being applied to the RF by the government- and it is in the monarchy's benefit as a streamlined RF may be more acceptable to the British public than the perception that the public is funding the many extended family members. 

As a history major she certainly should be well suited to many jobs - along with her family connections working in conservation or the royal archives  or even National Trust would be related to her degree.  She could teach. 

It is admirable that she got a degree with her dyslexia.

Cate, you're spot on; she's spending so much time vacationing, she's acting like she's someone who has a guaranteed future and doesn't have to lift a finger. Appearances aren't taxing and I think over time, the RF will be getting less requests as Anne and others die off. Threats and plans of cutting funding for the extended RF have been coming for a long time and it's not like she was unaware of the fact that politicians were constantly discussing the plan and literally making an outline of a formal bill for HM herself to sign. She needed to start planning on a future to support herself and she did waste time in uni if she planned on a formal royal life anyway and not using her degree.

Another waster, just like Kate.

People are expected to adapt all the time to changed expectations and situations; she should have gone back to school or learned something useful the minute she found out. She could get a job with that degree and she's not the first person who is dyslexic, so she should overcome that just fine.

She's not the first woman who is left in the lurch because she found out about not getting what she thought she would out of life.

It is admirable that she got a degree with her dyslexia.


The government stopped the Civil List to the extended royal family in 1992 but has been pleased to accept them representing them ever since with The Queen paying their expenses rather than the government.

No older members of the royal family have had to earn their own way other than Michael and he was always going to have to do that as the second son of a younger son.

My point is though that until she was about 19 or 20 the expectation was that she would be a full time member of the family - and that was coming from within the family not outside - to be the third working royal in her generation but Charles and William have refused that - because they don't want to have to support her - that is the reason not the government but they don't want to have to spend any of their money from the Duchy of Lancaster on anyone other than their own immediate family.

The problem will come in 20 or so years when the only real working members of the family are William, Kate, Harry and spouse - everyone else will be 70+ and they will be approaching 50 but George will be too young.

Having a couple of younger royals in their 40s could be useful - to do the grunt work done by the Kent's and Gloucester's now -  but that won't be possible so William and Kate will have to be around 800 to 1000 engagements each per year representing the government and the King. Harry could easily still be fulltime in the military then - although I doubt that he will get the chance to be there for much more than a year or two.

Yes there are many jobs a person can do with a History degree but that may not actually be where her real interests lie - she may have chosen History subjects as appropriate preparation of serving the people. A major career for people with history degrees is the diplomatic corps - but as a royal she can't do that without government approval.

Had things been made clear to her at 15 rather than 22 then her subject choices could very well have been different and she may have done different things to lead to her preferred career rather than subjects that could prepare her for a life of royal service. Now she is in limbo - having to real train for her preferred area years later than she would otherwise have done.

I can appreciate it was a shock to her and she now has to readjust her plans.  Life happens.  We adapt - she is fortunately young enough to do that.  It was not though realistic to think she was going to be supported by HM or HM's successors - it was one thing for HM to subsidize her sons life - it is another to expect it for a grandchild or a niece or cousin - as she will be to PC Will and Harry.  She does have a trust fund even if it is modest and she does have lifetime possession of Windsor Lodge as per a gift from HM.  So she is not exactly doing that poorly - better than most.

I hear this argument that down the road they will regret not having her and Eugenie.  But this fails to account for the fact that down the road there will be lower expectations for the work load.  The workload will be what PC Camilla Will and Kate and Harry and his spouse can do. The monarchies of the continental countries manage with the nuclear royal family - the UK will do the same.  And as Harry and his children get older they too will be in the same position Bea and Eugenie are in now - it is the inevitable result of being further down in the line of succession.  One cannot expect that the British people do austerity but the royals do not.  I read today that there are 4 times as many British families using food banks and food subsidies than there were 5 years ago - times are hard for everyone.  Frankly - given how hard times are Bea's vacationing habits do not do much for her reputation - ten vacations last year.  Just read the comments in the DM to see how well this is going over and it does endanger the future of the monarchy.

Princess Beatrice calls her dyslexia 'an opportunity' as she talks with British schoolchildren

Princess Beatrice spoke to sufferers of dyslexia on Thursday, telling them that "dyslexia is an opportunity."
 
The princess, who also suffers from the learning difficulty that affects memory and processing speed, told pupils of Bolingbroke Academy and the ARK Globe Academy in London that dyslexia should never hold them back.

Lets also not forget that the rest of the Queens grandchildren, excluding William since he's the heir's, heir, will never have to work a day in their life again, if they so choose to do so.  The Woman is a billionaire many times over and i'm sure that all of the grandchildren are and will be taken care of.

It was unrealistic of her parents to put it in her head that she'd be like the queen's cousins, working royal when she grew up.  They should have properly prepared her for a life without royal engagements.  Its not like she doesn't have an education, or more importantly, the connections to obtain a high profile job.  Instead she runs around like Paris Hilton.  I really did expect better of Beatrice.

In the end Anne did what everyone in this amily should have done. Despite all the money they may have upon the ueen death she raised her children to be hardworkers. I aree that Bea has no excuses even i it was a shock to learn she won't be a ull member o the working family she had more than enough time to get backk on her feet not to mention her granny is the ueen i'm sure it helps a little..

I hope Sophie raises her children the right way but more importantly i hope Harry sees that coz the same thing will happen to him and it is not a bad thing... He will serve the family for some time and then he will be free to have a normal life and his children will have normal lives too

I think Harry's children will live a normal life but he will continue to be a senior royal. George probably won't be required to take on royal duties for another 25-30 years. When Charles becomes king and then William it will be a very slimmed down monarchy with only a few senior royals. So I can't see Harry being able to walk away from supporting his father and brother.

Princess Beatrice enjoyed a mid-week date last night with long-term boyfriend David Clark at fashionable London restaurant the Chiltern Firehouse. 
Virgin Galactic executive Clark and Beatrice have been dating for eight years and it seems that the flame still burns strong for Dave.
The 31-year-old walked a step behind his royal beau as they left the restaurant, gazing at her in a rather besotted manner. Or perhaps the dreamy look was simply down to one too many cocktails?

He does look quite out of it.

It's strange trying to figure him out; for a long time he seemed like he had a good head on his shoulders but the more time passes the more it seems that the two of them may have made a mistake getting together since they appear to reinforce each others bad qualities; mainly the need to be on vacation all the time. Either that or they're perfect for one another since she gives him the social lift and he brings easier access to Branson money. If that's the case then I wonder why they haven't gotten engaged. Is there a deal there or are they just doing this for the fun stuff till one of them gets bored? You wonder what Beatrice would do if Dave left that job. She'd still have her Branson connection but would she bring him along when he didn't have a pass of his own? I like the York girls, Eugenie more, but I have a soft spot for both while the Wales' tend to annoy the holy hell out of me but Beatrice seems to be walking down the wrong path.

Quote
"Beatrice loves her glamorous dresses and her hair being curly or big -- like Mummy's -- and I *despise* volume. I like my hair to be sort of flat," Eugenie tells The Telegraph. "I like just throwing on a pair of jeans and generally being more understated. She is more 'Let's do the glamour.' We're chalk and cheese."
-Princess Eugenie, 2008.

Bit prophetic there. Beatrice seems to need the sparkly things in life, right down to the well connected boyfriend where as Eugenie likes it understated, having moved to a city where she can mostly disappear into the crowd and her "waiter" beau. It'll be interesting to see them five years from now. If I had to guess, I'd wager fair money on Beatrice being the one splashed over the pages of a gossip mag when she ends up divorced.

Beatrice crowned queen of tarts and vicars party: Sixth in line to the throne wore an imperial crown to friend's soiree

Given the furore when Prince Harry last wore fancy dress, members of the Royal Family might be expected to steer well clear of costume parties. Happily, his cousin Princess Beatrice has no such inhibitions.
The Duke and Duchess of York’s 25-year-old daughter recently attended a ‘vicars and tarts’ party at a friend’s house in the Cotswolds.
As my picture shows, Beatrice, who is sixth — and the first woman — in line to the throne, chose to wear a large crown to the soiree. It appears to be modelled on the Imperial State Crown worn by the princess’s grandmother, the Queen, at her coronation in 1953.

‘It was a very lively party, by all accounts,’ says a friend of one of the guests. ‘A vicars and tarts theme always helps to loosen people up.’
The Saturday night party was hosted recently by Frederick Schroder, a scion of the banking dynasty that founded the firm Schroders, at his family’s home in Gloucestershire.
The alumnus of Stowe School in Buckinghamshire is pictured standing in front of the mirror at the back. At 6ft 8in, Schroder, who works for a hedge fund, is the tallest person in the photograph.
Among the guests was Rasha Said, who is pictured standing to Beatrice’s left and dressed as a nun. Her father, a Syrian-born Muslim, is billionaire Wafic Said, who helped broker Britain’s biggest-ever arms contract, with Saudi Arabia in 1985.

German jewellery designer Sabine Roemer, who was once linked romantically to former England footballer and BBC presenter Gary Lineker, went as a ‘tart’. She is pictured crouching at the front, in a black ‘boob tube’.
Seated directly in front of the princess is Hanneli Rupert, daughter of the late South African billionaire tycoon and conservationist Anton Rupert. She chose to dress as a vicar and sported a false moustache.
Beatrice appears to be taking after her mother, Sarah, who loves dressing up  and joined Princess Diana in wearing police uniforms for Fergie’s hen night at Annabel’s nightclub in Mayfair in 1986.
Harry was forced to apologise in 2005  after he was pictured wearing a Nazi desert uniform, complete with a swastika armband, to a friend’s fancy dress party. The bash  was held in the run-up to Holocaust  Memorial Day.

well it is interesting that Harry got ripped because Pelly showed up dressed as the Queen to that Nazi uniform party - apparently Pelly made a off color joke about the Queen and Harry almost laughed at it - but his brother Will stopped him - still Harry got criticized for that.

This looks rather sophomoric but otherwise harmless to me - we did this when I was at Uni - vicars and tarts, pimps and ho's were you r basic Uni party themes.

I think Dave is wasting his time on Beatrice; whether he wants to marry or not, she's just pretty much dangling him (possibly) in the hope that someone better comes along. Who knows what she wants, but frankly Dave obviously does not have it.

Interesting, KF, as I've always had a sneaking suspicion in the other direction ie that the ambitious Mr Smiley (Dave) has found it very handy for years that he is dating a Princess. That goes both for Sir Richard and the wealthy clients he has to persuade onto Virgin space flights! Of the two Yorkies I would say that Beatrice has the least self confidence, and when she first went out with Smiler she was a teen with weight issues.

I think Bea takes too many vacations and her tendency to go for the freebies will yet get her in trouble - she had a close call re: her yacht trip at Christmas with the Russian oligarch - he could have ended up on the sanctions list and she would have been a huge embarrassment to HM and the UK gov.  Bea especially but both the York girls get themselves too caught up in the infighting that occurs between Andrew and Charles.  That the public knows of their infighting with Kate does not reflect well on them either and now their involvement in Harry's love life with this promotion of Cressida is another strike against them.  They keep showing themselves to be silly girls with a tendency towards high school mean girl behavior.

I had hopes for Eugenie since she actually seems to be pursuing a career but even then she still comes home to play the York games.  Foolish young women.

Like their mother, they have this complex where they feel entitled to a certain way of life just because they are titled; Fergie thought her title meant she would (and should be) be able to throw away mounds of money on anything she wanted and felt entitled to. That a title means the lifestyle to go with it, even at someone else's expense. Beatrice cavorting with a Russian oligarch that might have been on the sanctions list is similar to how Fergie socialized with an Iraqi minister right before the Gulf War. As for Eugenie, I wonder how that auction house job is coming along now, what with her in London frequently enough.

I like her outfit. And the damn Middleton women are not the fashion rulers of the world. Bea's choice of wedges for a garden party was totally appropriate. At least she didn't pair them with skinny jeans. And we were not subjected to her whipping up her skirt exposing herself like Catherine The Great constantly does.

Oh Bea..... 

Total train wreck.  Nothing looks right with anything else.  It's like a 5 year old dressing herself for the first time....

Shoe color is wrong, the blouse is wrong with the skirt, yikes, it's just bad.  Nothing fits properly. 

She's regressing.

Post by: YooperModerator on May 23, 2014, 03:59:45 am
^What, I have to pause and wonder is:  who is advising her?  Who is by her side to help her pick out appropriate dressing for her figure?  Evidently, nobody which is just plain unfortunate and sad because she's a lovely lady who is quite capable of looking smart and firm in her stride, but this?

The blouse:  Perfect for pants and cowboy boots
The flowered skirt:  Perfect with a short jacket, tank and low heels
The fascinator:  If you must wear it, wear it with a beige suit dress maybe, and with a peach/pink/raspberry silk tank, but it just doesn't happen here
The wedges:  Oughta be outlawed.  Especially with patent leather.   Holy moly, just, NO.  If and only if you are wearing a pair of black linen trousers with a white/straw/tan/lin3n tunic top and you're in Aruba, workable.  No, no, no, here.

I love Bea, but this is a mess. A real hot mess.

Patience, patience.  She'll find her way; I can see it in her.

I love wedges - canvas - lower heel than she has - in the summer - wear them all the time.  But the wedge was designed to be a casual shoe - not paten leather - not a garden party with the Queen.

Long sleeve blouse - it's summer - no long sleeves - especially with a summery skirt

She is hopeless - she cannot dress herself.

Princess Beatrice cuts a stylish figure as she dines out with boyfriend Dave Clark
SHE was pictured looking all dressed up and fancy yesterday afternoon after attending the Buckingham Palace garden party.

But Princess Beatrice opted for an altogether more casual ensemble when she stepped out for dinner with her beau Dave Clark last night.

Ditching her floral skirt and stylish headpiece, the 25-year-old went for an understated look as she headed to posh Mayfair Restaurant, Nobu, replacing her summery look for darker vibes.

Keeping on her ivory shirt, which came complete with a studded collar, Beatrice added a black pleated skirt, opaque tights and a midnight blue boucle jacket.

Princess Beatrice is big business

After months of procrastination, Princess Beatrice finally has a “full-time job in the business sector,” according to aides at Buckingham Palace, although they are unwilling to divulge exactly what area of commerce Her Royal Highness is dipping her dainty toe into.

Given the amount of time she takes off, Bea must certainly have generous employers.

Over the past few months she has been on trips to Verbier, St Barts (twice), Venice, Antigua and New York.

Only last week she had Monday off to go to the Chelsea Flower Show, and Wednesday (for a Buckingham Palace garden party).

Happily the royal history graduate does not have the sort of worries of most employees her age (25), such as how to pay for accommodation in Central London.

She lives in a four-bedroom apartment in St James’s Palace where the rent (fixed at £20,000 a year by the Crown) is paid for by her father Prince Andrew.

And should her job in the business world prove too boring, it won’t be long before her next adventure – this summer she and her boyfriend Dave Clark plan to climb the Matterhorn as part of a charity challenge organised by Richard Branson’s son Sam.

Plus she usually likes to holiday in St Tropez and Sotogrande in August.

So much to cram in!

Gap years after high school are fairly normal for young people from their class and wealth background in the UK.

Internships are a way of getting extra skills etc and some work experience thus making the person more employable. Given the very high unemployment rate in the UK for graduates doing internships is one way of actually increasing your chances of getting a job.

Beatrice could have gone to her family and asked them to help her get a job but she seems to be trying to do it on her merits by doing internships - and thus adding to her skills and also testing the waters for potential careers for both herself and a potential employer.

This article sort of explains internships in the UK - http://www.prospects.ac.uk/work_experience_internships.htm

Chelsy Davy did one for a year or more after she finished her law degree - as a cheap employee and she gained some skills and Beatrice has been doing the same thing - which is something she needs to do.

I was actually being facetious. 

Gap years are traditionally not taken by married fathers in their thirties (William).

I think Wm is a little too old to be taking "gap years". 

Chelsy appears to aspire to legitimate career goals, so her internship does not seem absurd.  We have also viewed countless photos of Chelsy dressed in suits on her way to and from work. 

Bea on the other hand is photographed on vacation in ill fitting swimsuits and leaving clubs with her mom.

Bea seems to spend a little too much time clubbing with Mommy, vacationing, and playing matchmaker to be working at a serious and legitimate internship.

Young royal and comedian were joined by their partners for dinner
The group ate at high-end Japanese restaurant Zuma in Knightsbridge
 


Celebrities love to court friends in high places, and in one of the more peculiar pairings of recent times Princess Beatrice enjoyed a double date on Wednesday with funny man Jimmy Carr.
The two apparent pals dined out at exclusive London restaurant Zuma with their respective other halves.
Beatrice was joined by long term boyfriend David Clark for the meal, while Jimmy was accompanied by his partner Karoline Copping
Leaving the luxury Japanese eatery the foursome looked happy and relaxed in each others company, walking alongside each other

Another day, anther date, another dinner.

I wonder if Dave will ever man up and start looking elsewhere; it's pretty pathetic that he's still hanging around after eight years.

He must be sure she's not interested in marrying and so he's taking pleasure on bonking a royal princess, or he's not interested; it's been eight years and still no interest in marriage? If we can view WK as pathetic, I think this is just as bad of a situation.

Does she EVER stay in? As Princess Beatrice dines at Roka, we bring you the hotspot-hopping royal's guide to London's smartest restaurants


Princess Beatrice is fast becoming the Royal Family's most enthusiastic gourmand, sampling London's finest culinary haunts night after night.
Last night, the 25-year-old was spotted leaving Roka Mayfair, the upmarket haunt by Rainer Becker, creator and founder of Zuma, Roka and, most recently, Oblix at The Shard.
In the last few months, she's visited the Chiltern Firehouse, Zuma, Nobu, Restaurant C, Balthazar, La Petite Maison, Les Trois Garcons and China Tang - it's a veritable roll-call of the capital's hottest dining destinations.

if Dave couldn't afford to take his gf out, he shouldn't have started dating a princess. Bea shouldn't be paying her own dinner with or without millions. andif Bransons sponsors those dinners - he's just cheap. Richard can afford a yacht, a vacation in Bali or in Ibiza, yet - he goes for the cheap sponsorship of a dinner  :cookie: and,seriously, 8 years is, as someone else said: pathetic.

I said it was pathetic; thing is, Beatrice is rich and why not treat a hardworking boyfriend to dinner? Or go out on her own and pay her own way. As for dating a princess, Dave can walk away at any time if he likes, but he apparently likes the royal connection. Beatrice has no problems dating Dave if it means that Branson will provide her with free yacht trips, access to Necker, and regularly funded vacations. She's as shameless as her mother.

I think Branson would be gladly providing the yacht and stuff (if he isn't already) if Beatrice were in fact dating Branson himself.

I think shes a pretty girl and normally i like what she weras besides i prefer beas clothes anyway.Like dani i agree is nice to see a girl who looks natural and herself and feel confortable with her own body.Thats why i hated this look.Not only she looks horrendous but like shes trying very hard to call attention.
Never saw her in such ugly outfit and shoes and make up and hair.Terrible!!!The dress is ugly so is the color and the horrendous shoes and the lipstick that dont combine with anyhting there.Now i can see why shes friends with cressida  :laugh:

I know im being a pain in the *butt* but i wonder if this was pippa or kate dressed like this what people would say  :laugh:

I dont think she looks good at all.And to me it proves that she and her sister are constantlly on a mission to call attention.Not only on how they dress but how they act and Always smiling enjoys attention.Always attend events and dinner dinner dinner aftre more dinners.After fashion shows and galas and etc etc etc.never doing anyhting good or substantial But always praised for doing nothing but enjoying life and the fame that came from theyre titles not form themslves at all.I used to be a fan of the yorks and im still a fan of fergie coz i simpathise with her.I think they are lovelly girls and etc but i dont deny anymore theyre the biggest hipocrites in RF.Theyre sues and fame seekers and is clear to see.I think even the bfs are too attention seekers as well Unlike thers who avoid being seen or dont enjoy trhe attention they love it and even give interviews to talk bout themslves theyre gfs and etc.Its too much in my opinions.More unclassy than a normal person trying to seek attention and social climb thorugh others or something is someone who clearll has some position or status doing and acting the same way.I find it all quite unclassy this yorks constant partying and being seen on social scenes as celebritys.Hanging out with celebritys and at celebritys places.Is bad.U dont see this kinda of exposition and adoration in shwoing off coming from any royal or someone linked to royals BUT the yorks.Is evident and quite sad already.
If it wasnt claimed by reports constantlly that both are working i would doubt my life they do.I still have my doubts even they mentioning it seriouslly.Again i wonder why whenever someone else is seeing having fun or vacationing for a few days theyre questionated about all.That includes not only people related to royals but royals themslves like prince harry and the cambridges.But with the yorks some let it pass  bignono

Her look for Trooping of the Colour?  Oh dear.  That beige does not for her coloring and the Flying Saucer/Vietnamese Farmer hat just screams, I'm trying to hide and would rather not be here.

SEBASTIAN SHAKESPEARE: Is Princess Bea batting for a bigger role in royal life?

Quote
Princess Beatrice showed off her table-tennis skills when she reopened the Charles Read Academy school in Lincolnshire this week, but is she hoping to play a bigger part in royal life?

Prince Andrew is said to have long cherished an ambition for his daughter, who turns 26 in August, and her sister Eugenie, 24, to join him as working members of ‘the Firm’.

nothing new here - the Palace wants her to get a job - she doesn't.


Title: Re: Princess Beatrice & Eugenie: News and Pictures II
Post by: Kuei Fei on June 20, 2014, 06:59:15 am
I think this is why I dislike her; she's obstinately refusing to get a job and determined to make the palace take care of her. Reminds me of Waity, only in Beatrice's case, it's even more pathetic. Her Uncle Charles doesn't want to support her lazy arse, but she's determined to mooch. This might be just me, but maybe Charles rightly wants to have a smaller monarchy, smaller amount of appearances, and will require less members, which would interestingly be a lot more healthy for the 'working' members of the royal family. Certainly she has no business living a lavish lifestyle while doing occasional fluff work.

Right now, she's setting herself up for quite a fall; she might have trust funds, but chances are high that once Charles is in charge, Fergie will be kicked out, the number of royal residences will be streamlined, and then of course, certain younger members will be cut off of the civil list gravy train. It's not like they'll starve since being associated with the RF will end up helping htem out one way or another and trusts will likely be set aside for their use. They'll still be well connected and toadied to. If Beatrice is that worried, she should marry David Clark.

there is no longer a civil list - they get a percentage of the profit made by the crown estates

I agree KF - get a career.  But I suspect Bea just wants to glam it up, do some engagements, vacation until she marries well and ends up  living in a Grandma provided estate or big house.

The problem is - what if the monarchy does not survive?  What does Bea do then?  Given her mothers life she ought to know that one can not predict the future - that one must be prepared.  Say what we want about Sara - but she has a work ethic.  Bea supposedly has an internship - out of school 3 years - and she is doing internships.

Yes she does the occasional engagement for Granny - but  her numbers are about the same - maybe less - than Kate.  Kate and Will get lambasted - but Bea is so beloved.  Figure that.  No real career - occasional engagements for the RF - constant jet setting - clubs, social events - yet she gets not a word of criticism.  Odd.

Eugenie at least does have a job although with a company owned by a friend of Will's.  Still she at least is making an effort.

I'm wondering whether Beatrice is in receipt of a Trust Fund that pays out a certain lump sum at 25 and then again at the age of 30. If there is something like that in place it could explain why she is not overly bothered about getting a job. On the other hand, perhaps Dave is partly supporting her financially. She certainly gets plenty of holidays because of Dave (and Virgin.)


Title: Re: Princess Beatrice & Eugenie: News and Pictures II
Post by: Kuei Fei on June 20, 2014, 10:13:50 am
She likely has substantial trusts, but she should be smart. She has her boyfriend to leech off of (lets call it what it is) and has free holidays off of Branson, but I am certain that at the same time, David might not stick around and she should get used to paying her own way through life. She's a lot like William has behaving and frankly she's using David as much as he enjoys the (very expensive) connection to the RF. He's certainly paying his way.

In absolute fairness, this is a perfect post.

Charles doesn't owe her anything and second, she's just frankly making a mess of her life. HM is burdened enough and living off of her grandmother is something that is just as bad as Kate is, living off of HM's reputation and hard work and certainly I believe that Beatrice is trying to wiggle in, making it impossible for her (Beatrice) to be extracted once Charles comes along and starts working to streamline. As for Eugenie, she's the same user, she's likely barely in NY and so she's at a point where she's just a name to that company and wasting a position that should go to someone else.

Beatrice should be using that coveted internship, should have gotten a useful degree, and also at the same time, made it a point to learn something she could use. She has no business making Charles and her cousin William support her and she has more than enough already. She can do some royal stuff when she has days off from work and could do evening stuff easily after work and if she created and runs her own business she could easily be running her own life and enjoy herself. She's just being shiftless and frankly I sincerely believe that cutting her off would be good for everyone involved.

Wherever the money is coming from, there is enough, but Beatrice has no right to make any taxpayer pay for her protection and pay for her lifestyle, leisure, and she has no business burdening her Uncle and William to support her and any family she might want to have. As for the monarchy surviving, that is something that all royal ladies should be trained and saving for. With animosity building by the month, Beatrice's behavior is ironically endangering the very institution she is relying on to support her lazy self. Just like how Kate is undermining the monarchy with her behavior.

Theoretically, Waity is busy being a wife and a mother.  Whether or not she is actually hosting dinner parties with Wm and has a full social calendar is up for debate.  She appears to have a decent relationship with George so she's clearly not leaving him solely in the care of her mother or the nanny in the nursery. 

Now Bea has neither a child or husband, she's not even engaged.  She's just playing house with Dave.  I'm sure she's an asset to a degree for Dave but he hasn't slapped a ring on her hand.  Her mother is a liability, and so is her father.  She's probably a nightmare at dinner parties since she can't close her mouth when she chews.  She's wealthy but it's impossible to determine to what extent and if she can actually get her hands on real money or if she's living off more of a trust fund allowance.  Her official role or lack thereof within the RF excludes her from most of the perks and privileges. 

Certainly, she's financially independent and if she doesn't want to pursue a career then she should throw herself into legitimate charitable work not sponsored by the RF.  Filling in once in a while is hardly going to catch the attention of the Queen, Charles, or the public.

She's clearly not serious about an RF role since her actions don't reflect that.  It's just as obvious that she's not interested in a career.  I don't expect great things from Bea and assume she'll be no different than her worthless parents.

For all that you say Beatrice might marry well (I'm addressing the board in general), I wonder just how 'well' since most rich men are not fools (these days) about people. So Beatrice might think the world (and rich men) owe her a lifestyle, but at the same time, she's a prisoner of the times. The government and Charles wants to streamline the RF considerably and at the same time, I wonder just how realistically well she could do on her own. She has her mother hanging onto her and that alone is a HUGE burden. Meanwhile the rest of the situation is unfavorable. She could work, but I wonder if the reality is that she  simply isn't smart or hard working enough (even with connections a high level business takes a huge amount of brainpower) to maintain herself regally.

Thing is, one way or another in life we find our level, hers might just be a respectable gentry level leisure lifestyle.

It is odd if Bea wasn't carrying any money.

I know historically the royals didn't carry cash but Bea doesn't travel with an entourage like her grandmother.

There was a story once about Harry not carrying cash with him while in the Army and a buddy having to buy his meal. 

Who knows???  Maybe the royals are used to freebies and friends picking up the tab. 

At least for once they press isn't mocking her clothing or mother.....too bad it's such a non-story.  Why can't these tabloid writers delve into something more interesting for once.  Like I don't know Bea's 5 year plan or the status of her relationship or something of interest.  That story was hardly a page turner.


Title: Re: Princess Beatrice & Eugenie: News and Pictures II
Post by: meememe on June 25, 2014, 01:38:25 pm
A couple of points:

I find it insulting to those of us who have History degrees to have them described as 'useless' - having a history degree is not useless and they aren't easy to get.

Beatrice doesn't get protection paid for by the taxpayers but covered privately - not local police in other words.

Andrew is one of the hardest working members of the royal family. For the last few years only his older siblings have done more although this year he has been a bit quieter and is approaching 200 for the year (the Queen, Edward, Charles and Anne have topped 200 so far this year with Sophie not far behind). Andrew doesn't get the coverage of his engagements because there is no partner to write about but he is out there supporting young people and other charities etc.

When you start to analyse the number of engagements and who is doing them it makes some interesting reading. If you have never visited The Royal Forums there is a poster there who does a weekly update which includes the percentages of people in different categories and it is quite interesting to read and see how much is being done by those already over retirement age.

http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/f23/annual-engagements-for-the-british-royals-2014-a-36291-7.html

75.3% of those engagements being carried out by The Queen, her children and their spouses.
42.9%. done by the main line (The Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Duke of Cambridge, Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry)
17.3% of all engagements are being done by those over 85.
23.4% done by those 70 and above
62.9% are being done by those over 60.
40.7% were done by those in their 60s.
10.6% have been done by The Queen.
12.5% were done by Charles.
5.1% were done by Camilla
51.3% were done by those over retirement age
11.6% were done by Anne


Add 20 years to the current ages of the royals - no one in the next generation stepping up as George will be just approaching 21 and the 'young royals' will be in their 50s with only 3 and maybe 4 under 70 (assuming Harry has married). Having someone in their mid-40s will reduce that age gap a bit.

I am torn about whether or not Beatrice will be needed and sometimes think she will be and that it would be unfair to turn around in 20 years time and say 'we need to you to work for us'. If she is keen to do it, and she does seem to be so maybe it would make some sense to use her - particularly if William and Kate are going to hide in Norfolk for another 5 or so years and Harry wants to build a career in the army.

Then the next time I think about her I think she should simply disappear and only appear at really big royal events such as coronations etc and maybe not even then forcing William, Kate and Harry to have to step up a lot more and a lot sooner than they appear to want to do.

Leggy lady! Princess Beatrice shows off her pins in LBD at Chiltern Firehouse
SHE'S known for wearing opaque tights every time she steps out in a dress, but last night Princess Beatrice finally decided to show off her bare legs.


The 25-year-old royal got all dressed up for a night out on the town and she certainly looked good.

As she arrived at celebrity hotspot Chiltern Firehouse, the redhead showed off plenty of leg as she stepped out of her vehicle and headed inside the Marylebone venue.

Her little black dress fell way above the knee and featured a cowl neck whilst showing off her slender figure perfectly.

Why not?

Rumour and innuendo shouldn't be a reason to destroy a person's reputation.

Would a reputable school have him on the board of trustees and openly use him to promote their school and fundraising efforts if they had any concerns? No I don't think so (he is on the board of trustees of Lakeland School in Canada).

There is NO proof and NO charges etc -  only some people choosing to believe the worst of someone because a friend is unsavoury.

Post by: meememe on June 26, 2014, 06:26:24 am
It isn't always the case that where there's smoke there is fire.

I will give you an example of destroying someone's reputation and career based on rumour and innuendo.

About 10 years ago I was working with a lovely young male teacher - early 20s, just finished his training and he loved it. He was teaching Year 2 and one of the parents complained that she had seen him 'kissing one of the pupils in another Year 2 class'.

He was stood down until there was a 'full investigation' but in the meanwhile other parents said they would never want him near their child etc etc.

However they didn't know all the important facts - the child he was kissing had:

a) fallen over and injured herself
b) he had been the first teacher to reach her and comfort her
c) he had kissed her on the head (not as implied by the allegation anywhere really inappropriate)

by now most of you are ready to argue that he acted totally inappropriately and join the hand, draw and quarter club:

but there is one other very important fact that was also overlooked:

d) she was his niece and actually lived with him and his wife as her own parents had been killed in a car accident.

It took THREE years to clear everything up but by then his reputation was in tatters and he couldn't get another job in a child-related industry - even worse - the child was removed from the care of her loving family and it now in a foster home and not allowed to see her uncle and aunt, even though he has been cleared of any wrong doing the mud has stuck.

I always tread very warily in these cases for that very simple reason - rumour and innuendo can destroy an innocent person.

meememe I would be inclined to agree with you except - there was a lot more than smoke here - now - let me be clear - there is no suggestion of pedophilia on his part but rather that he was well aware of what was going on and did not report it - cease to hang with Epstein nor stop going to the parties.
 Even after charges were brought against Epstein he continued his relationship with him.  Epstein paid 1 million dollars to Fergie - to assist her in relieving her debt.  Lot of money that is.  Andrew finally stopped associating with Epstein after the Brit newspapers got a hold of it and caused pressure.  Photographs at these parties of Andrew in the presence of these girls were published in US newspapers (and can still be found in a search).  He knew - he still went to the parties.

Do please recall - that because it was deemed an embarrassment to the Queen - the state of NY had to turn the case over to the feds - who then did not prosecute - again because Andrew's involvement would have embarrassed the Queen - so Epstein got a "no prosecution" agreement and still lives freely in Palm Beach.  He was however - due to the overwhelming evidence against him - given a number one status on the sex offenders list.  ALL court records were sealed.

As you say 'no suggestion' that Andrew has done anything wrong - so why shouldn't he continue to work with organisations that support and help children? Which is what started this discussion in the first place.

All there is in innuendo and rumour - and as I have said - I don't believe that as I have seen how that can destroy a person.

Princess Beatrice dodges ferry queues by hitching a lift with the navy: Royal hops aboard HMS Ranger rather than face the crowds
Most people on a day trip to enjoy the picturesque beauty of the Isle of Wight would hop on a ferry.

But when Princess Beatrice paid a visit she avoided the queues and bustle of Portsmouth sea terminal – not to mention a £17.20 return fare – by hitching a ride with the Royal Navy.

The 25-year-old’s decision to hop aboard HMS Ranger, an Archer-class patrol boat, when she travelled to the island last week raised eyebrows, with one resident saying: ‘Why couldn’t she come on the ferry like everyone else?’

It is not known whether Prince Andrew, a former Navy Commander, pulled any strings to help his daughter hitch a lift, but insiders were quick to insist that the boat-ride did not place an additional burden on the taxpayer.

The HMS Ranger/Royal Navy always trains at Isle Of Wight Cowes, I don't see How Princess Beatrice could have added any tax burden of any sort to British Civilians, doesn't make sense. Plus ,the Isle of Wight visit was arranged by a Lord Lieutenant  from start to finish that includes arranging transportation for royals. it was a Lord Lieutenant's choice to have Princess Beatrice transported by the royal navy not her, besides I think a Lord Lieutenant  would know what he was doing I don't think he would add any unnecessary tax burden to civilians .  This is the dailymail creating unnecessary drama and not doing their research

Apparently HM must be skimming funds to support her family, since I don't see the palaces in good shape (as far as I've heard). So the Yorkies must be getting some taxpayer assistance via money that should be used to maintain the palaces. Apparently Buckingham Palace is a crumbling mess, but the Windsors can afford lavish KP renovations and are able to end up paying for new helicopters and for various other stuff that isn't needed.

The Queen's  grandchildren would be in receipt of trust funds. Prince Edward's worth 45 million dollars, Charles 210 million, Andrew 82 million dollars. I don't think they are shaking begging bowls around.
Huge ancient structures like Windsor Castle are in constant need of maintenance. Buckingham Palace has always been in need of structural repairs. When a building dates from the 18th century in parts, that's just the way it is.

This year the Queen, or rather those who administer the Sovereign Grant, spent £900,000 on part of a ten year project to replace the roof, a huge endeavour for a building which dates back to the early medieval period in parts. £800,000 was spent on asbestos removal at Buckingham Palace in this year alone.

yes Rosella and I think that gives you an idea of how huge BP is - the 800,000 was for asbestos removal in the basement - not the whole building - the asbestos removal was a prelude to work that is supposed to be done this year on re wiring and new venting - big job.

I like Bea,  :flower: but she's taking a 'course(direction)' dangerous/said / worrying
just one example: Makes 5 commitments / work and take two weeks of vacation  ... like William.
The work (she- sonny / he- RAF )  :spy: full of doubts and ''obscure'' information about this.

The HMS Ranger/Royal Navy always trains at Isle Of Wight Cowes, I don't see How Princess Beatrice could have added any tax burden of any sort to British Civilians, doesn't make sense.
I disagree
If it were someone else?
Kate, for example, ... for her to go on vacation.

^ yes - it is about perception not burden on the tax payer. 

And her father funds these engagements - because he keeps trying to get her a job as a full time royal.  Pushing his daughter for his own ambition.

Exactly; I have to wonder about Beatrice, since she isn't making it a point to either marry very well or build a career for herself that would enable her to live in regal style. She could work with the Arab royals, making a mint off of them and live regally and enjoy an undemanding position.

Princess Beatrice stands out from the fashion crowd at glamorous charity event


All eyes may be on the Duchess of Cambridge's wardrobe choice today as she visits a primary school in London but another royal family member is quietly holding her own in the fashion stakes.
It seems that with each public appearance she attends, Princess Beatrice pushes the style boundaries further and further.
The young royal looked on-trend in a colourful boxy A-line skirt and white blouse as she attended The Masterpiece Marie Curie Party event in London last night.

Once again she demonstrates that certain pieces just do not work together.  The shoes???  The floral pattern is a bit much with the skirt!  The necklace doesn't work in part bc it competes with the neckline of her blouse and doesn't lay correctly. 

Fashion forward she is not.  She doesn't have the figure or the "stuff" to pull it off.  Some women just don't, she needs to stop letting her clothes wear her.

I like the way that Beatrice experiments with fashion even though she does not always get it right. Eugenie is a very pretty girl and quite natural looking. Does not need to trowel on the make up. Love Emilia Fox's outfit.

wow - what a difference

Beatrice looks great - great shoes too - too bad she did not have purse in the lilac color too

Eugenie is a pretty woman - nice choice in dress also - beige shoes not so much and what is with these women - the Camilla syndrome -  good fitted bra needed!!!!   


Title: Re: Princess Beatrice & Eugenie: News and Pictures II
Post by: Rosella on July 02, 2014, 01:38:36 pm
Yes cate, I like Eugenie, but she is very bosomy! Some time in a good lingerie shop being measured and fitted for the right bra would work wonders. As for Camilla, I do wonder sometimes whether she has a touch of osteoporosis, causing a bit of pain in the shoulders and back. She too is quite bosomy. Sometimes she seems to slope a bit, and that could affect her underwear choices.


Title: Re: Princess Beatrice & Eugenie: News and Pictures II
Post by: cate1949 on July 02, 2014, 01:57:38 pm
didn't Cam's mother have osteoporosis too?  There is medication for that but ultimately once it happens - really ladies - need to keep fit - good muscle tone helps prevent osteo.

Wonder if Camilla might have just a bit of arthritis too - the way she slopes.


Title: Re: Princess Beatrice & Eugenie: News and Pictures II
Post by: Kit on July 02, 2014, 03:20:51 pm
Camilla may have bone health issues...she's a smoker but she's not thin and clearly soaks up plenty of vitamin D based on her tan.  Estrogen therapy helps improve and maintain bones.  When estrogen therapy is administered correctly other bone density treatment drugs are often unnecessary.  She's not fit so it's hard to say.  She may just be out of shape and have poor posture.

Either way most of the royal ladies should invest in better foundation garments and Kate just needs to wear them.

A good seamstress would do wonders.  A great and expensive dress looks cheap when it doesn't fit correctly. 

Eugenia's dress just didn't fit.  I'm sure it's more challenging for her to find items that work with her curvy figure that are not matronly. 

Bea's make-up was a bit much, too heavy, bordered on clownish.  Had her dress been another color her look would have been more striking. 

They didn't hit home runs but at least for once they didn't land on the worst dressed list.

How DOES she manage her diary? Beatrice arrives at the tennis after attending every star-studded event this week - and it's only Wednesday! (And sister Eugenie isn't far behind)
She may have had her dancing shoes on for not one but TWO parties last night but that didn't stop Princess Beatrice from grabbing a good seat at Wimbledon.

The busy royal has been spotted at today's quarter-final match between Sabine Lisicki of Germany and Simona Halep of Romania.

Beatrice joins star studded spectators including cousin Prince William and his wife the Duchess of Cambridge in her Wimbledon whites.

1. Eugenie isn't bothering to pretend to work in the US, in any serious way, anymore

2. Beatrice has trust funds, but that does not make it right that Charles and William are supposed to support her.


Title: Re: Princess Beatrice & Eugenie: News and Pictures II
Post by: meememe on July 03, 2014, 01:49:25 am
Don't people in the US get holiday time? Eugenie has been seen a few times in the UK since early June - Trooping the Colour - and it was also stated that she would commute so it is still conceivable that she is having a holiday or even one week in NY and one week in the UK for royal events (and her employee may even have agreed to her having a couple of weeks 'extra' leave time to do royal engagements - as often when her name is mentioned in the press so is the name of the company and thus free advertising). The plan always was that she would only be in the US until September this year as the company is supposed to be opening a London branch and Eugenie would be working there - so again they could be ahead of schedule and she is already working in the UK at least in setting up the office.

Beatrice's trust fund should be substantial enough to support her without needed Charles or William to support her - just as The Queen doesn't support her extended family now. She pays the costs of their official expenses only not their day to day living expenses so all Charles and William would be asked to pay would be the costs associated with her if she became a working royal. As that has never been confirmed - a comment from a staffer in 1992 that Charles had said in a meeting that was an idea is not confirmation of a definite plan in 2014.

I am still thinking that maybe she will be working for the royals full-time in her 30s simply because of the number of engagements - around 4000 a year now with over 50% of those being done by people already past retirement age and Anne doing around 13% more. The bulk of the rest of the engagements are being done by 3 people with one in her late 40s and the other 2 in their 50s (and they do about 25%+ between them) I have calculated (using the figures by the poster on TRF) that the Cambridge's are doing less than 7% between them. As the older group age, slow down and even die, someone has to be willing and able to take up the slack and the Cambridge's don't seem all that willing, Harry is full-time in the army (and yes when he represents The Queen he is actually 'on duty' not on leave) and about to turn 30 so from September this year no working royal under 30 so there could easily be a place for Beatrice. She has taken on another patronage just this week - interestingly in Berkshire where Bucklebury is - as is Windsor of course.


Title: Re: Princess Beatrice & Eugenie: News and Pictures II
Post by: cate1949 on July 03, 2014, 01:56:37 am
right - she does get vacation time!

Bea may not yet get her income from her trust - but her father is said to be worth 82 million so I doubt PC is supporting her.  Also - her father picks up the costs of most of her engagements or so the papers said.

That 4000 number is a bit misleading - the royals have an interesting method for counting - if they go on an engagement - the meet and greet - shaking hands with people in the street - is counted as one engagement - the event inside is counted as another and the picture taking is a third.  Really not so accurate  than - the number.

I suspect she won't work full time for the RF - because that requires staff and they are already complaining about how many staff and the cost.  The claim has been made that Harry and Will cannot increase their engagements because it would require more staff and hence more money.

Eugenie seems to be carving her own space not so dependent on the RF.


Title: Re: Princess Beatrice & Eugenie: News and Pictures II
Post by: meememe on July 03, 2014, 04:03:13 am
The royals actually don't do a 'count' at all.

The CC simply lists everything that a royal did officially.

A man named Tim O'Donovan started, in the early 1980s, to do a count which he then sent to The Times and The Telegraph each year and that has become the 'count' over the last 30+ years.

He is the one that counted things the way that is described here not the BRF. The poster that does the count on TRF started, if I remember what was said, by wanting to figure out how Mr O'Donovan was doing his count and although they don't always agree with Mr O'Donovan's figures they have been pretty close.

Other royal families might just say - 'xxxx visited yyyy town' and leave it at that while the BRF gives more details such as the different places within the town where they visited such as 'visited aaa school and then toured bbbb church and had lunch with the Mayor at cccc'.

Looking at Prince Edward the other day:


The Earl of Wessex, Chancellor, University of Bath, today presented Degrees at Bath Abbey and was received by Her Majesty's Lord-Lieutenant of Somerset (Lady Gass).
His Royal Highness, Chancellor, University of Bath, this evening attended a Reception at Victoria Art Gallery, Bridge Street, Bath.
The Earl of Wessex, Chancellor, University of Bath, later attended the Chancellor's Dinner at the Pump Room, Stall Street, Bath


Some would say that that is one engagement because everything was done as Chancellor of the University of Bath but Mr O'Donovan, I believe, would count that as 3 engagements because he had to go to three different venues within the town and did three different things - presented degrees at one venue, then attended a reception at a second venue and then went to dinner at a third venue.


On the same day The Duke of Kent: The Duke of Kent this evening attended a Reception at St. James's Palace for Addenbrooke's Trust


So The Earl of Wessex clearly did more than The Duke of Kent but should they both only count as one engagement or three for Wessex and one for Kent? Both had attended a reception but Wessex also presented degrees and went to dinner.

Counting the number of days on which engagements were carried out shows that these two men do work on a different number of days with Wessex having carried out official engagements on 70 days this year compared to Kent's 63 - so have they done the same amount just on number of days or has one done more because on the days he does work officially he does more?

It is an exaggeration to say that if they go on an engagement - the meet and greet - shaking hands with people in the street - is counted as one engagement - the event inside is counted as another and the picture taking is a third.  Really not so accurate  than - the number. is counted as one engagement as that isn't how they record engagements at all.

Take Charles and Camilla from the same day as above:

The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall this morning visited St. Illtud's Church, Llantwit Major, Vale of Glamorgan, and were received by Her Majesty's Lord-Lieutenant of South Glamorgan (Dr. Peter Beck).
 His Royal Highness, President, National Trust for Places of Historic Interest and Natural Beauty, and Patron, Welsh Historic Gardens Trust, and Her Royal Highness this afternoon visited Dyffryn Gardens, St. Nicholas, Vale of Glamorgan.
 The Prince of Wales later visited Sony UK Technology Centre, Pencoed Technology Park, Pencoed, and was received by Her Majesty's Lord-Lieutenant of Mid Glamorgan (Mrs. Kathrin Thomas).
 The Prince of Wales, Royal Patron, the Dylan Thomas 100 Festival, and The Duchess of Cornwall this evening gave a Reception.
 The Duchess of Cornwall, Patron, War Memorials Trust, this afternoon visited the Welsh National War Memorial, Cathays Park, Cardiff, as part of the In Memoriam 2014 campaign to protect war memorials from theft.I
 Her Royal Highness, Patron, Arthritis Research UK, afterwards visited the Clinical Research Facility, University Hospital of Wales, Heath Park, Cardiff.

They both went to: St Iltud's Church and Dyffryn Gardens
Charles went to: Sony UK Technology Centre
Camilla went to: the Welsh National War Memorial and the Clinical Research Facility
They both gave a Reception

I believe that Mr O'Donovan would count that as 4 for Charles and 5 for Camilla. The press shows the meet and greets and the events that may take place inside and uses photos of the events both official and unofficial at times but the CC just lists the event.

^^Of course Cate, in a decade or two most of the older royals sadly won't be with us any more. The expenses of senior royals won't decrease of course, but Bea might well be called in to assist (and have her expenses paid) when it becomes clear that the elderly King Charles and his family are becoming snowed under.

She doesn't have a model's body, that's for sure, but then again, most of the population doesn't.  Yeah, sometimes she looks pretty bad, but then when she looks great, she looks really great.

I don't like the skirt or blouse combo on her because they make her middle too boxy, but I disagree about not having the legs to pull off a shorter skirt (which isn't that short, IMO).  She's got muscular legs, so why shouldn't she want to show them off?

They both get a tick in my book for wearing Westwood. Kate's too boring for Westwood.

Camilla is involved with the Osteoporosis charity. Her mother had the illness. She has campaigned for all women over 50 to have a DEXA scan. They do this in some countries but not the UK. It identifies potential problems early on and the person can take measures to prevent any further bone loss.

In the UK many people suffer from lack of Vitamin D. This means that calcium is not absorbed as well.

PRINCESS EUGENIE sat front row at Wimbledon this afternoon to watch Eugenie Bouchard play in the women's final against Petra Kvitova
.
Although the Canadian was a runner-up in the ladies final match, it will've cheered her up to see her namesake in the stands supporting her.

Bouchard was named after Princess Eugenie and it's well known her family are royal enthusiasts.

Speaking after the match, Bouchard said: "First of all I want to congratulate Petra - she played fantastic for these two weeks.

"It was really tough for me today but I am proud of how I have played for these two weeks, I love coming back to Wimbledon so thank you guys. I feel like it's a step in the right direction, I 'm not sure I deserve all your love today but I certainly appreciate it. "

Despite her age and privileges, she and her sister are still very immature; there's little chance she's going to drop the celebrity behavior and I believe she's throwing her life away in hopes that Charles will support her desire to be a working royal, if only because she's done little else. Like Kate, waiting around to obligate William.

Princess Eugenie has done such an impressive job during a trial in New York with online auction house Paddle8 that she's been offered a permanent role.
Eugenie, 25, was expected to return to Britain after spending the past 12 months in America, but will now extend her stay, with Paddle8 founder Alexander Gilkes describing her as a 'great asset to the team'.
And it looks as if she could be joined in the Big Apple by her boyfriend Jack Brooksbank.
The 28-year-old, pictured, was recently working at London nightspot Mahiki but a chum says: 'There are discussions going on about Jack finding a way to live there too if he can.'

If this true and she takes the permanent role go for it .sine she went to New York getting away from that crowd she changed and grew New York was a good move for her

Mummy's little Princess: Proud mother Duchess of York hugs daughter Eugenie as they have lunch and a stroll in New York

The Duchess of York hugged Princess Eugenie in a heartfelt moment while visiting her in her new home of New York.
Sarah Ferguson's youngest daughter, 24, is well and truly flying the nest as she has just been made permanent in her new job in the Big Apple.
And her proud mother, 54, took the first opportunity to fly out and congratulate her, as the pair were spotted hand in hand on a day out in Soho yesterday.

what made Eugenie think she looked good in that shirt dress?  These two York girls clearly do not look in mirrors before they leave the house.  And the baseball cap? 

Fergie still has great legs and her hair looks so much better up like that

Princess Eugenie could have been mistaken for just another chic Manhattanite — were it not for her rather unusual accessory: an ice hockey stick.

The 24-year-old History of Art graduate was posing with the stick in the middle of New York, where she works for online auction house Paddle8.

The younger daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, has long been a fan of hockey, even breaking her hand at the age of 11 during a school match.

don't care for the dress  :wopedo:

Happy Birthday Bea

Move over Kate Middleton, Prince Harry and Prince William – there’s a new coolest royal in town, and she goes by the name of Princess Beatrice.


1 She’s not afraid to steal the show.

It was the biggest wedding of the year and watched by millions of people around the world – but Princess Beatrice had no idea that her choice of Philip Treacy headwear would upstage the bride at the Royal Wedding in 2011.



2 She has a healthy attitude to her weight.

She’s always had a gorgeous figure. But when she signed up for the London Marathon in 2010 (the first royal family member to do so), Beatrice knew she had to get fit. She worked with a trainer doing boxing, squats, lunges and outdoor workouts to prepare.

oh jeez - did she really say this?

The young royal has reportedly complained that Kate ‘gets the glamour jobs, the clothing allowance, the limos and the royal protection team, while I travel economy,’ according to Woman’s Day.

if she did then she does not understand her own family nor her place in that family.

It says she's "reportedly" said that. She's not been the type to put her foot in her mouth so I'm leaning towards that being B.S. or possibly out of Andrews mouth and it being attributed to her.

Royal fans would no doubt agree with Princess Beatrice when she says she looks forward to seeing Prince George grow and develop.

The Duke of Cambridge's cousin spoke about one-year-old George at a recent event. "It will be really exciting to see how he grows and what sort of person he becomes," she told The Sun newspaper.

The 26-year-old, who works for Sony, was named Royal Patron for the Sick Kids Friends Foundation last year and has previously visited the hospital in Scotland to see the work they do

She is still working for Sony - as every report of this event has reported.

It is possible that she has some time off - for the day to fit in this engagement.

She doesn't work 24/7 and so does have days off and on those days she can do what she likes.

Many companies in the UK also operate a skeleton staff or even close down for August so that everyone is on holidays - and that could be the case for Beatrice and the work she is doing at Sony. There may also have been an arrangement that when a 'charity royal event' came up she would be given the day off. She may also have flexible working hours - so does 40 hours a week but can work 45 hours most weeks and thus have a day off in lieu of the extra hours worked. There are many options for workers these days that would allow her to have a day away like this.

Beatrice doesn't have to be a full-time working royal to do charity work, if she wants to spend her free time doing this then so be it. Quite frankly, the BRF needs to stop f#cking around and bring her back on because as we've all seen their direct in line and his leech wife doesn't want to do sh#t. Bringing Eugenie on and putting her to work doing a couple hundred engagements a year would actually be in their favor.

I always liked Bea but i dont think shes hard working at all.I mean come on.I dont blame or judge her especially coz she has been kinda of expeled from the list of working royals but i find her interest in being an active royal quite questionable.I dont like eugenie but i think at least shes trying to show she can do something else and start something on her own.Even with the easy kinda of art job she got through conexions and sharing the same lifestyle as her older sister she does seems like shes going into some direction.I see eugenie with a good future actually.I see her more like the Philips for example.With royal conexions and all the benefits that comes with it but also with her own life.As for Bea i dont know.Her future looks confusing to me.She have a very weird relationship with this guy for years.I dont see them getting married and if a marriage happens i dont see it lasting.Dont ask me why.She seems to have no direction professionally speaking.This job to me sounds like an excuse for her to say she is doing something while she does what she does ( partying, vacatioing and enjoying rich life) or even lie whathever.I dont buy it  :sorry:

I agree she wanst to be a full time royal and i believe that being a born and raised princess is her right and the royals should use her in some way.But i dont think shes hard working at all there was never any indication of it anyway.What has she done besides smiling at galas and some events.Dinning 3/4 times a week at very expensive restaurants with vips friends and celebs?Vacations with vips and celebs.I think she has a very nice life and working has never been part of her plans.
I do believe she only is insisting on this coz she wants the good life and benefits that may come with royal life (without the responsibilites obviouslly) She reminds of her mother a lot.Someone who refuses to grow up and dont want to live in the real world and with a real carrer and job and having to  make and use her own money.I think she wants the royal life coz its the easier thing for her to do.I think Bea is lost and i royal life is all she ever known so for her it may be the easier choice.Thats why shes so insistent about it.I dont blame her i mean she was raised to be a princess anyway and now shes said she cant be one coz they can keep her.She has to be a normal person and live a normal life.Deal with it.Yeah its probablly hard.

I do think shes a very nice girl with a huge heart but i think all this insistence in being royal has more to deal with her reluctance in accepting that shes been denyed a golden ticket than anything else.The Golden ticket in reality is not so gold and i think ( hope) she will change her mind eventually.I see potential in her .Hope she finds her way anyway :thumbsup:

Princess Eugenie sips champagne during the US Open men's final alongside dashing New York business man


Perhaps buoyed by the news of the upcoming royal birth, Princess Eugenie looked in excellent spirits as she watched the tennis.
A known tennis enthusiast, Princess Eugenie of York attended the 2014 US Open Men's Final at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City yesterday to watch the hotly anticipated game between Marin Cilic and Kei Nishikori.
The 24-year-old royal was spotted quaffing champagne with New York entrepreneur Phil Winser and they talked and giggled throughout the match before heading into the exclusive Moet & Chandon Suite.

Post by: meememe on September 09, 2014, 09:57:53 pm
I suspect that they will be quite pleased with the news.

It moves them further from the throne. Eugenie is already in a position where she doesn't need The Queen's permission to marry (or won't once Australia passes the Succession to the Crown Act) and Beatrice won't need it once this second child is born so a greater freedom for them.



Title: Re: Princess Beatrice & Eugenie: News and Pictures II
Post by: Emperor on September 10, 2014, 01:29:14 am
That also means that there may be more pressure on her to make it on her own. Her father would rather she became a working royal but with this new baby it puts her much further from the crown and hence puts on a greater amount of pressure on her to create her own destiny



Title: Re: Princess Beatrice & Eugenie: News and Pictures II
Post by: meememe on September 10, 2014, 07:13:06 am
Yes and No.

She always knew that she would get pushed further away but...she is still the first female in the line of succession at the moment and will be the first adult female for at least another 18.5 years (if this baby is a girl and if it is a boy for even longer).

She is currently the 5th adult in the line of succession so unless the Queen lives until George and probably the sibling are both 18 then she should have to serve as a Counsellor of State meaning she could have to received or farewell ambassadors/high commissioners or even sign legislation.

Eugenie might be able to get away with moving to the UK but for Beatrice it is a bit harder simply because she is that one person closer to the throne.

If anyone would be unhappy, it would be Beatrice mainly since she's (Beatrice) been angling and working on being expected to make appearances and certainly this makes her more superfluous, unneeded, and seen as a burden if she wants to work as a royal and be able to continue to lead her gilded life.

yes - Cantor Fitzgerald - it is really a remarkable story.  They lost 2/3's of their employees that day.  The president of the company committed to giving 25% of the company's profits to the families of their employees who had died for 5 years - which they did.

They rebuilt the firm - largely because of the surviving London office staff.  They continue to donate all their profits made on 9/11 in all their worldwide offices to charity - having raised like 100 million so far.  Pretty amazing. They did not change their name - they just have all kinds of subsidiary companies including BGC.

A celebration of London Fashion Week: From Sir Paul McCartney on the front row at Hunter to Princess Beatrice at Markus Lupfer, the buzz in the British capital is unrivalled (and it's only the second day!)
Forget New York because London is giving the stateside style capital a run for its money - and it's only day two.

The bi-annual fashion showcase, which kicked off yesterday, has seen a veritable galaxy of stars land in the capital to celebrate the best of British style.

Today's Hunter Original show was case in point. It's only his second show at London Fashion Week but the brand's Creative Director, Alasdhair Willis, drew in the starriest crowd.

Well said.

Sarah was supposed to be at the Cantor Fitzgerald offices or somewhere near them at the time the plane hit killing around 600 employees. She has been involved with this event for her own charity (Children in Crisis) and the Cantor Fitzgerald side of things since its inception because she has felt so lucky that she was running late that morning.

Interestingly, Kate hasn't gone to a single fashion show since becoming a royal duchess; thing is, that she really trivialized herself during her ten year campaign and she had a lot of work to do in order to become a 'serious' working royal. Apparently she wanted to go to fashion shows in Milan, but was refused. Then there was that rumor that she wanted to design the uniforms of her household staff, but ended up being refused that as well. So she hasn't really been very fashion-oriented.

Cate and MeMeMe,

I was speaking in general not about this particular Fashion week.

KF, I agree she has put herself between a rock and a hard place. By wearing clothes from the high street on visits where she represents the Queen she has set a precedent for herself. I don't have a problem with any female (or male) showcasing British fashion when on Royal duties.


Title: Re: Princess Beatrice & Eugenie: News and Pictures II
Post by: cate1949 on September 14, 2014, 09:32:52 pm
I think the problem with attending Fashion week stuff is that it is  such a celebrity event and it is not in the best interests of the RF to become too associated with celebs.  The Brit people clearly do not like it and it trivializes the monarchy.

No one expects the First Lady to attend the fashion week stuff in the US and most would probably not be happy if she did.  I do think Kate should promote British designers but not by going to Fashion Week.

I admit I love fashion and I watched the videos of Brit fashion week - the clothes were insane - unwearable for a normal person and unaffordable too.  Reminded me of the Emperor's new clothes.  Listening to MacDonald go on and on about how he envisions woman as mermaids who should be surrounded by shells and coral was laughable and rather sexist.   Best Kate is not associated with that in the eyes of the average Brit. IMHO

Princess Beatrice is now a firm fixture on the London social scene, attending a string of charity events, galas and parties every month.
But the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson is clearly still carving out time for her long-term boyfriend Dave Clark.
The 26-year-old princess was seen last night with Virgin Galactic executive Clark, 31, enjoying a date night at Berners Tavern just off Oxford Street.

You're far more generous than I am, Fly; Bea's skirt was not the first thing I noticed in that ensemble. :P Is the unbuttoned, braless look the latest trend to emerge from LFW? If so, maybe it's for the best that Kate stays away after all!

On the plus side I love her accessories and always have done. I know that black on black isn't the most ground-breaking or difficult combination to get right, but even when viewed apart from the rest of the outfit her bags and shoes are always great.

Kate vs Beatrice: The royal rift
July 21st


Duchess Catherine and Princess Beatrice has gone public and the royals are taking sides.

Amongst royal circles, it’s no secret that the pair are hardly the best of friends. Ever since Catherine married Prince William in 2011 and became the new darling of the British monarchy, tensions have been simmering between them.

This year alone, Catherine has been winning hearts around the world – especially in Australia, during the international Royal tour. With darling young Prince George in her arms as she went, the world can’t get enough of the beautiful doting wife and mother.

Meanwhile, Beatrice and her sister Princess Eugenie have been relegated to attending garden parties and cutting ribbons. And playing second fiddle to Kate, 32, is a bitter pill for Beatrice, to swallow.

Woman’s Day’s sources reveal that Beatrice, 25 refers to Kate as “the Chosen One”, and complains to friends that “she gets the glamour jobs, the clothing allowance, the limos and the royal protection team, while I travel economy”.

http://www.womansday.com.au/celebrity/royals/2014/7/kate-vs-beatrice-the-royal-rift/

Quote
Fortunately for Catherine, she has found an unlikely ally in Zara Phillips. “They never used to get on, but they’ve become friends in recent years,” we’re told. “They’re both hard workers so they feel they’ve been cut from the same cloth, and neither Kate nor Zara have time for the whingeing that comes from Beatrice.”
Yeah ok  :laugh:


Princess Beatrice's fury: Duchess Kate ruined my wedding!
September 22nd

With news of Duchess Catherine’s second pregnancy dominating headlines, the young Princess Beatrice is reportedly furious at having to postpone her nuptials as her spotlight is stolen.

Woman’s Day understands Princess Beatrice was preparing to confirm that, after seven years of dating, she and her boyfriend Dave Clark are getting married. But before the official press release could be distributed, Kate and Prince William made their own announcement – that Catherine is pregnant with baby (or babies) number two.

Much to Princess Beatrice’s dismay, her royal rival the Duchess of Cambridge has unknowingly blown her engagement plans out of the water – again.

Adam Helliker: Princess Beatrice 'resents' Duchess Kate's success
IS THERE a rift between the Duchess of Cambridge and Princess Beatrice?


According to gossip doing the rounds, Beatrice, who is sixth in line of succession to the throne, feels “overshadowed” by Kate and has become “resentful” of the worldwide interest in her.

This febrile chatter has now been amplifi ed by an Australian magazine, Woman’s Day, which has reported that “while Kate has been winning hearts around the world, Beatrice and her sister Eugenie have been relegated to attending garden parties and cutting ribbons”.

The magazine claims that Beatrice, 26, “complains to friends that Kate – the ‘Chosen One’ – ‘gets the glamour jobs, the clothing allowance, the limos and the bodyguards, while I have to travel economy’”.

It says that Beatrice makes openly snide remarks about Kate and her sister Pippa, whom she describes as “vacuous” and “pushy”.

Beatrice, the elder daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, is alleged to have called Kate “a commoner” and to have made withering comments about Kate’s determination to maintain a slim frame.

The report adds that Beatrice, whose most recent job has been as an intern at Sony Pictures in London, was scheduled to announce her engagement to her boyfriend of seven years Dave Clark but before she could go public Kate “hogged the limelight again” with the announcement of her second pregnancy.

For some time there has been talk, not reported by the magazine, that William and Harry do not get on with Dave, who works for Sir Richard Branson. It has been said that they view him as “too fl ash”.

When I raised the subject of a rift with a friend who is close to William and Kate, it was quickly dismissed as mischievous tittle-tattle.

He added: “It’s not true; Beatrice is too good-natured to say those sort of things. She admires Kate.”

Women's Drivel run with this story around the time of the pregnancy announcement and are so short on stories they have to run it again with more details.

I doubt that Beatrice would be all that concerned about Kate as she knew that whomever William married would get all the attention, the clothes etc as the wife of the future King.

Maybe she was planning on announcing her engagement but...she also knew that Kate and William had indicated that they wanted more than one child and that therefore there was a good chance that they would be pregnant again this year.

As for William and Harry not liking Dave - one of them introduced Beatrice to Dave so they must have liked him at one stage.

This to me is an article designed to sell magazines with no real substance.

Beatrice knows that she is a minor royal who won't be doing the royal duties routine so has to make her own way in life even if she would prefer to be a working member of the family. She has done 3 engagements officially all year - one was to represent her father at a funeral, another was to attend a church service and the third was a garden party. When she does other things The Queen doesn't record those as official events which even Beatrice realises means that she isn't going to be doing the glamorous things that will come Kate's way.


Title: Re: Princess Beatrice & Eugenie: News and Pictures II
Post by: cate1949 on October 27, 2014, 12:49:36 am
^I think you are right MeMeeMe that Beatrice knows her place in the grand scheme of things  and so some of the things said in this article are nonsense.  She surely does not expect to be sent on grand tours of Commonwealth countries.

Woman's Day of AUS has already printed some pretty off the wall stuff so their credibility is strained at the least.

But there is certainly evidence of some tensions - the great who has to curtsy to who under what circumstances ruling from HM shows that there were some conflicts and "commoner" versus Princesses of the Blood issues in the family.  That Andrew has made some "Princesses of the Blood" remarks and that there is apparently some tension between him and Charles about both his and his daughters future roles is another indication of a degree of conflict.  Beatrice also clearly had an expectation she would be a working royal and while she surely has come to see that is not going to happen she did have to adjust to a new life plan which might leave her with some resentments.  We know that pre marriage Kate and her sister have had a run in here and there with Eugenie/Bea.

And of course - if you are unhappy about changes in your status or future status - you direct that unhappiness towards the least powerful person and the newest member of the family - especially if she and her sister have not always been so diplomatic - who is of course Kate.

I rather doubt it is open warfare but it is to be expected - human nature being what it is - that there are some resentments and bumps in the road.  Personally - Eugenie appears to be the tougher of the two sisters - Bea night complain - but I'd put my money on Eugenie being one who would take action.

First, Kate is doing fun stuff because she's worthless in every other area.

Second, as wealthy as the BRF is, Beatrice is wrong in expecting to be taken care of by the RF and needs to be smart and make her own way. Deliberately making herself useless is going to end up with her causing resentment among the 'main' RF and it is smart that Charles cut the extended royals out.

I don't see Beatrice making much of an effort to be anything other than a royal version of a trustafarian, but that on a whole is a bad idea. Life changes and so do our plans and we have to adapt or drop. Beatrice is now as far as we know, sixth in line and that means she has no future as Sovereign.

Charles is not obligated to take care of her and second, Andrew should be thankful that Charles isn't using the alleged pedo scandal with Epstein against him publicly. If Beatrice wants a pampered lifestyle, she will have to work for it or make it a point to end up marrying very well, maybe some oligarch.


Title: Re: Princess Beatrice & Eugenie: News and Pictures II
Post by: meememe on October 27, 2014, 02:07:22 am
Charles has never said that he is going to cut out the extended royal family.

That idea is linked to a comment by a staffer in 1992 and not attributed to Charles but more a general view that they won't need as many working royals going forward but no actual figure was ever given as to how few that should be.

Currently there are 15 people who regularly undertake official royal duties but of those 15 none are now under 30 and 5 are over 70 with another 4 in their mid-late 60s.

Add 20 years and the youngest of those 15 will be in their early 50s with at least 10 years before the next generation will be ready to take up duties (George, like those before him, would expect a gap year, 3 - 4 years at uni and some time in the military).

That is where the 'smaller royal family' could become an issue - Charles, Camilla and The Duchess of Gloucester in their late 80s, Anne in her mid-80s, Andrew in his mid-70s, Edward at 70 with Sophie in her late 60s and William, Kate and Harry in their early 50s.

Who knows if Harry will ever marry - he seems to have trouble holding onto a relationship that will end in marriage so it is possible he won't marry and he has indicated he wants to stay in the army until retirement age - so in 20 years he still won't be working for the family full-time (and if he isn't his wife, if he has one, won't be expected to do so either).

Beatrice has had a number of internships and has been at Sony all this year. In the UK internships may or may not be paid positions and can last up to a year or more. She is obviously trying to find her niche in the working world, in a very competitive job market in the UK with unemployment in her demographic being quite high.

The next question is what has she actually been told and by whom? We don't know if The Queen and/or Charles have said directly to her - 'no you will never represent us' or 'we want you to have some real work experience first and then will add you to the roster in your 30s' or something in between.

The curtseying thing is also a misdirection. The actual direction affected 'private precedence' - that is which women enters a room first when ONLY women are present and was first put out when Camilla joined the family because Anne didn't want to have to take a backseat to her own former lover's ex-wife. Generally the royals don't curtsey to anyone other than The Queen and Philip - so that curtseying situation simply won't arise. What it means for Kate and Beatrice is that if they are the only two people about to enter a room, in which only women are present, then Beatrice enters first but as soon as there is any male present e.g. both ladies are to enter a room with The Queen and Philip - Kate enters first as William's wife and then Beatrice but if only The Queen is present then it is the other way round. Same thing if they are both visiting Prince and Princess Michael of Kent - if just Princess Michael is there the Beatrice takes precedence - over both ladies mind you but if Prince Michael is present then Kate takes precedence and would take precedence over everyone in the room.

Well, that article doesn't make sense to me Bea's supposedly jealous  because of the glamour jobs  etc. For one Kate  barely does events, she not known as heavy weight for events.  How can one possibly be  jealous of someone whom most of the time isn't there?  The thing is  they both do events that have do with ribbon cutting and glamour , just one does it officially and the other doesn't. Ironic since the one who has more patronages and does more charity work is Bea.  Sure,  kate has more attention, but seeing how she gets her attention really ain't nothing to brag about.

the monarchy will reinvent.... again.


Charles (Camilla) ,Wiliam (Kate) and Harry (wife) will also be Anne,Andrew , Edward (Sophie).
maybe there will be less travel (for commonwealth). they will have less protection officers and security spending
maybe there will be changes in the choices (Institute of charity)
maybe .... example: William manages/administers the duchy
and Harry administers Trust.

Post by: cate1949 on October 27, 2014, 05:21:32 am
there is a lot of evidence and commentary re: changes in the RF  And not in the DM or other tabloids but in policy discussions.  It is very clear the government expects reductions not just in cost but in the size of the family and that trend had been apparent for years - the end of the civil list and withdrawal of support for the extended royal family - charging market rents for KP and other residences the recent switch to private security guards for royal residences.

The notion is that the focus will be not on making all these visits but on foundations and the work they do.  We see this clearly with Charles Will and Kate - they support those charities with appearances that are funded by their foundations.  So the point often raised about who will do all the engagements - it is moot - they won't be doing engagements as they have in the past.  They will do engagements with those organizations they sponsor through their trusts/foundations.

Yes - I think Harry will get Princes Trust - his appearances do already include activities funded by the PrincesTrust/Charities.

I have to ask, is that her slip hanging below her skirt or is the lining of her skirt falling below the skirt itself?

The 26-year-old royal was attending the annual Bloomberg Tradebook Charity Day in the firm's London office – a one-day venture that raises money for various causes.

Looking her usual elegant self, Beatrice donned a royal purple dress and gave a nod to her mum's charity by proudly wearing its yellow sticker.

They do not have any traditional royal privileges (direct public funding/bodyguards/job for life/housing) and no one really likes them. Meanwhile the cousins do whatever they want and people consider them super normal and down to earth.

Anyway they are not going to like her...

Doesn't the Queen provide housing for Bea?  She also received an inheritance from the Queen Mother and Andrew's not exactly penniless.  The Yorkies get all the perks minus the responsibility.  They clearly don't need to work.

If these girls had an ounce of sense they would either buy themselves a husband before those Windsor genes kick in or devote themselves to charitable pursuits.  They don't need to represent the Queen or be official royal patrons.   It wouldn't be that difficult to overcome their parent's history.  

I don't think either York girl would be difficult to like if they did something of substance and stopped dressing like they were teenagers shopping the closets of their friends and mother.  

They're both lucky that Waity is such a disaster otherwise they'd be toast.

So Eugenie's done nothing of substance by leaving home and working in another country? Yes, she clearly got the job via connections but at least she's doing something. Even better, it makes use of her degree. I think it's time to stop talking about the York girls as a tandem cause, right now, Beatrice is the one who seems to be directionless, not Eugenie.

I think Beatrice just wants to be on HM's/Charles' hands so she can be granted a working life as a royal princess. Kind of like women who make themselves as useless as possible for some reason.

They do not have housing for life. As they do not work for the RF they will have to pay for rent like Prince Michael does.

I'm not sure about Windsor Lodge, is this the same where Andrew lives now? There is an interesting read here about this house BTW http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/this-britain/a-30room-mansion-in-the-grounds-of-windsor-castle-to-you-sir-acircpound250-a-week-6146197.html

Beatrice is also working now. If she wasn't the press would have told us countless of times like when she left her last job.

Both went to college, got her degrees, are working and do charitable pursuits. They also go partying but so do the cousins and no one says anything against them. They even appear nude (LV/France) and that makes them more approachable. Imagine if it had been the Yorks...

Busy B! Princess Beatrice gives her colleagues a helping hand as they shoot scenes on the streets of London

While she's often been seen out on the London social circuit, or lending her support to various philanthropic endeavours, it's rare that she's been spotted getting stuck into her day job.

But on Thursday, Princess Beatrice of York was busy helping her colleagues from Sony as they shot a video in the Soho area of London.

The 26-year-old redhead appeared to be in high spirits as she helped oversee the camera work taking place on the streets of the British capital.

Pretty in a navy and blue lace dress and with her glossy red hair swinging around her shoulders, Princess Beatrice was every inch the royal style icon as she arrived for a charity dinner in London last night.
With her was her mother, Sarah Ferguson, who showed off her newly slimline figure in a tailored black suit and matching cashmere top.
The pair were attending the Bell Pottinger Charity Dinner at Lancaster House, a vast Georgian palace now owned and run by the Foreign Office.

I don't think either York girl would be difficult to like if they did something of substance and stopped dressing like they were teenagers shopping the closets of their friends and mother.  

They're both lucky that Waity is such a disaster otherwise they'd be toast.

So Eugenie's done nothing of substance by leaving home and working in another country? Yes, she clearly got the job via connections but at least she's doing something. Even better, it makes use of her degree. I think it's time to stop talking about the York girls as a tandem cause, right now, Beatrice is the one who seems to be directionless, not Eugenie.

She's been in the US for a little over a year and has taken a lot of vacations especially for a person just entering into her career.  I think it's a little too soon to suggest that Eugenie is different from her sister.  Time will tell but I think she may be benefitting from the anonymity she receives while in NY.  Maybe she does have her act together but Bea was able to give that impression at first too.

it's no doubt one of London's most popular celebrity locations for a night out.

And Wednesday night saw a host of famous faces walk through the Chiltern Firehouse's doors, including the likes of Princess Beatrice, Kylie Minogue, Jeremy Renner, Luisa Zissman, Tom Felton and Jimmy Carr.

The young royal led the way at the end of the night as the guests left the central London location

Has royal family been compromised by Sony Pictures cyber-attack? Princess Beatrice was working at studio when hackers 'linked to North Korea' stole details about staff

Princess Beatrice, the first woman in line to the throne, may be among the victims of the Sony cyber-attack.
The 26-year-old eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson was working at Sony Pictures in London when hackers breached the company's computer network.
During the hack last Monday, sensitive medical files, email exchanges, pay details and other private information about staff were stolen.
Princess Beatrice, who is the sixth in line to the throne, took up an internship at Sony Pictures at the beginning of the year.

Princess Beatrice’s salary revealed in Sony hack: she makes $30,300 a year?

Quote
*Princess Beatrice has a job with Sony’s offices in London. Her job description is listed as “Intermed Coord, Prod” which just sounds like a fancy title for a production assistant or intern. Surprisingly, even though Beatrice has crazy-amazing royal connections, her salary is relatively paltry: she makes £19,500 or $30,300 a year. That’s probably a lot of money if she barely does anything for them, but overall, if a princess gets a cushy job at a studio, you would expect it to pay a bit more.

*Seth Rogen & James Franco’s salaries were revealed for their film The Interview (which is about North Korea). Seth made more than James! Seth got $8.4 million and James got $6.5 million. The film only cost $44 million to make, which actually is a pretty small budget. And they paid Kevin Federline $5,000 for his cameo.

Eugenie gets arty in Miami! Princess joins friends for day out inspecting the wares at ultra-cool modern art fair
She's busy forging a career as an art dealer in New York but that doesn't mean Princess Eugenie is immune to the lure of a little time off - even if some work is involved.

The royal, 24, was spotted enjoying the sunshine in Miami, where she joined friends at Art Basel Miami Beach - an offshoot of the prestigious Swiss art fair.

Dressed in a relaxed black jersey dress, a pair of mirrored aviator shades and a battered pair of Converse, Eugenie looked every inch the art enthusiast as she admired the wares on show.

Princess Beatrice takes no chances for the Queen's Christmas lunch, debuting a new hair-do for the occasion

not a hair is out of place, even if she is your grandmother.
Princess Beatrice is now almost as famous for her shiny locks as her cousin by marriage, the Duchess of Cambridge, but she was taking no chances when it came to attending the Queen's Christmas lunch.
The 26-year-old royal was spotted emerging from a South Kensington hair salon early this morning, hours before being driven to Buckingham Palace for the royal family's annual festive event.

another of today's many posts on the royals 'sex-capades'.  It does appear that something is being let loose in the media.


Quote
While the Princess was as sensible as ever, Bee had earlier posted a picture of herself in a bikini on social media having one of her breasts groped by a blonde girlfriend.
It was not the first time she has raised eyebrows with a racy picture. Bee has posted a series of scantily clad shots on Instagram.  Even when she took part in the charity ice-bucket challenge she made sure she was wearing a white T-shirt that revealed her bra when wet.

Princess Beatrice and her boyfriend Dave Clark look relaxed as they enjoy a holiday on Caribbean island of St Barts as her father prepares to fly home to face the Queen

Princess Beatrice was spotted stepping out for a stroll with her long-term boyfriend, Dave Clark, in St Barts.

The couple, who have been dating for more than six years, looked relaxed as they walked along the waterfront of the Caribbean island, where they have been enjoying some winter sun.

The sighting comes after it emerged that Beatrice's father, Prince Andrew, will fly back from his skiing holiday in Verbier today to tell the Queen that he did not have sex with underage girls.

When Epstein was released from his alleged "jail" he threw a party for Andrew - which was attended by among others - Katie Ciuric and George Stephanopolous.  Obviously - his history as a alleged pedophile did not end his ability to get famous folk into his home for a party.  So I rather doubt Bea and Eugenie will suffer too much from their association with Andrew.  People will not shun them because of the allegations against Andrew.  Some people just won't believe the allegations - some won't care.

So yes they are both probably embarrassed but I doubt they will suffer socially.

I wonder how this is going to effect the princesses; as it is Beatrice is yearning for an official role, but this likely won't happen since Andrew is too damaged to be a credible proponent of his daughter's interests and of course, Beatrice isn't credible as well, she has a lot working against her.

Another Royal Wedding? Princess Beatrice 'engaged' to long term boyfriend

Britain's Princess Beatrice has quietly gotten engaged, according to reports.

It was while holidaying in St. Barts that Dave, a Virgin Galactic executive, is said to have got down on one knee.

"Dave has wanted to ask Beatrice to marry him for some time and has been planning it for months. He had originally intended to do it back in October, but then work got incredibly busy after the tragic Virgin Galactic crash, so he decided to wait and did it on holiday instead. Dave is a traditional guy," a source told British magazine Grazia.

Beatrice is the granddaughter of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, and the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of York, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.

The news will no doubt be a joyous occasion for the family, who are currently battling a media storm over Prince Andrew's friendship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

Princess Beatrice Is Not Engaged, According to Friends

Reports that Princess Beatrice is to marry her long-term boyfriend, Dave Clark, are a tad premature, Royal Watch has confirmed.

According to a now-discredited report in Grazia , Clark, 31, who has been dating 26-year-old Beatrice for the past seven years, asked the princess to marry him during a recent trip to St. Barts. The magazine wrote that he proposed during the New Year vacation and Beatrice reportedly said yes.
But sources close to Clark, an executive at Virgin Galactic, told Royal Watch that he has yet to pop the question.

“I have personally spoken with Dave and he has denied the story,” one of his best friends told us. “They were on holiday, but he says he didn’t ask her to marry him.”

The couple are said to be happy, in love, and Beatrice’s parents, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, apparently “adore” Clark.

Nevertheless, another friend added, “We did think that Beatrice might come home with a ring on her finger, but it doesn’t seem to be the case.”

If there was to be an engagement, the tabloids would run with the story, pushing her father's story off the pages.

The old diversionary tactic again. So we'll need to wait and see.

She needs to stop dangling him and if she's not serious, she should let him go and stop wasting his time. It's been eight years and she's still uninterested. I'm sure he would be glad to get married, but Beatrice is acting like William, acting like Dave is just a person to pass the time with.

This isn't right for Beatrice to pull something like this.

First, she's leeching like William was leeching off of Kate/Gary/Middletons and she's lucky she has a title or he would have dropped her or not bothered dating her in the first place. Second, she's been in this relationship for nearly a decade and she's obviously waiting for better to come along, although I doubt it will happen.

If I were her I would land him as a husband and enjoy the Branson largesse for life rather than wait for 'better.' If her father ends up a wanted man, Dave might in fact drop HER and move on rather than deal with her, her family drama, and any possible taint by association. It's not fair, but it happens. She's playing with his time/life.

Princess or not, she needs to stop toying with his life and time and start making choices. I do think she wants better, but won't let him go since she's uncertain about whether or not she will end up even getting another boyfriend who would treat her half as well and put up with her dithering and entitlement attitude.

Princess Beatrice relaxes in St Barts days after Prince Andrew denies sex claims

The daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson was spotted casually browsing the local shops in Hermes shortly after departing from a yacht.

It comes just days after her father denied any truth that he had sex with a teenage girl.

Princess Beatrice, 26, stuck to a casual look by wearing a loose-fitting plain black dress, complete with a colourful beach bag and gold flip flops.

Her look of relaxation was topped off with her long auburn hair worn down in loose waves.

The Princess spend a New Year holiday on the same Caribbean island with her boyfriend of six years, Dave Clark.

I do think having her father branded a possible alleged pedophile has caused her to possibly comfort eat and I do think that she's worried that this will jeopardize her chances of becoming a working royal and become supported by the UK taxpayer by the time William becomes King. Or Charles for that matter. This has stained her father forever and I do believe that Charles will use this as the perfect reason to make her get off of her backside and end up making her own way in the world. If I were her I would marry Dave quick and get the eternal posh lifestyle that she's hankering after and have Branson's eternal indulgence.

I can't get over how Beatrice and Eugenie think they have a right to a free ride on William and Harry's backs. I never thought streamlining the monarchy was a good idea, but now I see the benefit of it. Charles is right to cut them out, they have no business making him carry them or take care of them. Secondary royals used to be kept well, but only because it was temporary until they married their own prince for the sake of the nation and moved on in life. Since neither do anything for the nation, they have no business being so lavishly supported. Eugenie has a token job that she leaves constantly and to me, let them fall on their face if they end up standing on their own two feet.

Making appearances is now considered a laugh, or something a royal should do as a child or teenager. They're not arduous and it's not likely they're doing back-scenes charity work all that much, if at all. So what's the point?

Princess Beatrice unemployed after quitting her job at Sony

PRINCESS Beatrice has quit her job at Sony Pictures, it emerged today.

The Queen's 26-year-old granddaughter left the £20,000 per year post in December, according to The Sun.

Nevertheless Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson's eldest daughter will continue to lead a life of luxury, despite having no working income.

She continues to live at her family's 30-room Royal Lodge in the grounds of Windsor Castle, but also has a four-bedroom flat at St James' Palace.

^ The reason they're going hard on Bea is because they don't want to do the same to Will and Kate. This would be the point where they'll write something about Harry, but so far this year all they've got is him hosting dinners and visiting wounded vets, which would only make Will and Kate look worse. I'm not saying she didn't deserve the negative press as I do think she's a freeloader - this is what, the second internship she's left since finishing her degree? - but that is why they're going after her.

Post by: Kuei Fei on January 31, 2015, 01:50:06 am
Yes, well, Beatrice isn't helping herself. For someone who wants to be part of the royal team, she's being a huge drag on herself, no one else. She's going on these holidays, she's dangling her boyfriend Dave for the past near decade, and she's at a point where she blew her place at Sony. She was supposedly doing hedge fund work, supposedly doing all sorts of stuff, but as far as can be seen, she's been essentially mooching around hoping for a few patronages, a few appearances, then a vacation.

Really, this is no different from Kate and as far as I'm concerned, if she has to work hard to avoid being stigmatized by her parents, she can after all end up learning to live with it like so many others do, who have horrendous parents who fail to do the right thing all the time by distancing themselves from it. She could have taken her education seriously and done well, learned a practical trade from trade school, and then ended up working quietly except for the occasional appearance.

Instead she chose to take the jet set freeloader route and as far as I'm concerned, she's at a point where she has no business whining and moaning about life or how fair things are. She chose to spend her teens drinking like a fish and going to trashy clubs and hanging around shady rich people. Frankly, she blew a lot of very real chances. I don't think and never will think that she's supposed to get sympathy just because her gravy train free ride is at an end.

As with Kate, if she didn't put herself in these situations, Beatrice wouldn't be getting criticized like this.

Beatrice has no business mooching so much and then mooning around the holiday resorts. It's selfish and to me, Charles is justified in cutting the Yorkies out.

Life's a beach for Princess Beatrice's boyfriend Dave Clark as he relaxes with a model friend - while royal stays inside on their St Barts break

Quote
He's holidaying in St Barts alongside his girlfriend Princess Beatrice and a large group of friends.

And Dave Clark was making the most of the good weather on Saturday by taking a dip in the ocean after sunning himself on board a luxury yacht.

The handsome 32-year-old showed off his six pack as he splashed around in the sea alongside model Allie Rizzo, while Beatrice gave the beach a miss.

I do think thought the writer is correct - the young royals ain't so young anymore and it is time for them to stop with the jet setting and goofing off - settle into proper full time work and lay off the luxury vacations.  That sort of behavior endangers the monarchy.  And at 26 Bea is old enough that her "finding herself" mantra is nonsense -

Streamlining of that family cannot happen soon enough


Title: Re: Princess Beatrice & Eugenie: News and Pictures II
Post by: Kuei Fei on January 31, 2015, 05:32:24 am
Agreed. At 26, you're not a kid and you're often either working and going to school, working, or just finishing up graduating from college. How on earth does Beatrice have any excuse? At this point in time, even kids with fat bank accounts are more stable and career oriented. She has no business fluttering around like a ditz bunny.

At this point in time her work history is hideous and her vacation history well documented and frankly, her "History of Ideas" degree is such a joke. She's well behind her same age peers and she has no business expecting her Uncle to fund her pampered lifestyle. It's just a burden on her uncle who has enough on his hands already.

Beatrice has had advantages and has no business being so unaccomplished. No appearances, she should be cut out and made to work for her bread and butter. She has a huge home, a thick stack of cash to fall back on, and should figure out a way to get a good living for herself.

There's no reason to ban her from living in a palace or having some kind of privately paid security, but she should be expected to get a job like everyone else. Sick of honest work being treated like some kind of bizarre disease and frankly it's telling that she's not courted by any wealthier and more powerful men as you might expect.

I think that it's more likely that Andrew took it for granted that his girls would be taken into 'the Firm' as adults. (He seems to have emphasised that they were the only 'Princesses of the Blood' in their generation when anyone hinted that they should plan for a career.) Andrew appears by all accounts (by ex royal servants etc) to be a rather pompous and arrogant type. It seems pretty clear, IMO, that the Wessexes children and all the great-grandchildren except for William's offspring are destined to have private lives, and I think that's a good thing.

^  I think everyone thought the York princesses would play a role when they were born in 88 and 90.  At that time, the monarchy was riding high, Majesty and Royalty magazines were big and glossy and full of all the minor royals as well as the senior.   It all came crashing down in 92 and has continued its downward spiral with Diana's death and Charles' remarriage.    Andrew has stayed back in the 80s, not willing to change with the times.   I speculate that Eugenie was quite willing to move on to a career -- and has, it seems -- but Beatrice was promised a role by Granny who found it difficult to refuse Andrew and so compromised by saying one of the girls could have a role.  But it isn't working out because Charles isn't cooperating and Andrew is in hot water . . .

You're right, it was likely taken for granted that they would have royal roles, but I do believe that she and others should adapt. I don't think that Beatrice wants to work on her own or for anyone, but wants to do asinine tours and fluffy appearances, but frankly, I do think she should just grow up.

As with everyone else, life threw her a curve-ball and she's at a point where she has to adapt whether she likes it or not. Cadging free holidays will last only for so long if her boyfriend gets fed up with being dangled and led on. She should try working at the palace offices with the courtiers and have the palace housing, work, light schedule, and a huge bank account. Doing something solid and not getting what she wants is the reality for everyone these days.

A lingering issue is Counsellors of State.

"Counsellors of State are members of the Royal Family who temporarily carry out some of the Sovereign's official duties in the absence of The Queen."  "Counsellors of State are appointed from among the following: The Duke of Edinburgh and the four adults next in succession (provided they have reached the age of 21).  These are currently The Prince of Wales, Prince William of Wales, Prince Harry of Wales and The Duke of York." It isn't clear to me if this means there are 5 Counsellors of State or four. Is the spouse automatically a CoS, followed by the first 4 in the line - totaling five?

With Charles as king this becomes: Camilla (spouse), William, Harry, Duke of York, and Beatrice until George turns 21. If DoY passes before George is 21, Eugenie becomes a Counsellor of State.

William as king: Middleton (spouse), Harry, Duke of York, Beatrice, and Eugenie until W&K's children come of age. If DoY dies before George is 21, Edward becomes CoS but ranks below Eugenie. This would change when/if Harry has children, but as long as his kids are under the age of 21, it means an official role for Beatrice and possibly Eugenie as Counsellors of State.

A lingering issue is Counsellors of State.

"Counsellors of State are members of the Royal Family who temporarily carry out some of the Sovereign's official duties in the absence of The Queen."  "Counsellors of State are appointed from among the following: The Duke of Edinburgh and the four adults next in succession (provided they have reached the age of 21).  These are currently The Prince of Wales, Prince William of Wales, Prince Harry of Wales and The Duke of York." It isn't clear to me if this means there are 5 Counsellors of State or four. Is the spouse automatically a CoS, followed by the first 4 in the line - totaling five?

With Charles as king this becomes: Camilla (spouse), William, Harry, Duke of York, and Beatrice until George turns 21. If DoY passes before George is 21, Eugenie becomes a Counsellor of State.

William as king: Middleton (spouse), Harry, Duke of York, Beatrice, and Eugenie until W&K's children come of age. If DoY dies before George is 21, Edward becomes CoS but ranks below Eugenie. This would change when/if Harry has children, but as long as his kids are under the age of 21, it means an official role for Beatrice and possibly Eugenie as Counsellors of State.  




True - but if they are permanently living outside the UK then they are also ineligible to serve which brings Edward and Anne back into those roles in time, and even Louise when she turns 21.

Beatrice goes back to school! Princess follows in sister Eugenie's footsteps as she heads to the US to begin a course in finance

Princess Beatrice is set to follow in sister Eugenie's footsteps and has temporarily relocated to the US, the Duchess of York has revealed.

The 26-year-old princess, who is thought to have already arrived in the US, will study for a qualification in finance during her stay.

In a statement, a spokesman for the Duchess said: 'Princess Beatrice started a finance course in the US this week' but refused to confirm which institution the royal is studying at.
The news, which was first reported in Hello! magazine, means both of Prince Andrew's daughters are now living in the US, even if, for at least one of them, it isn't permanent.

Princess Beatrice supports close friend Holly Branson as she gives speech at charity dinner... on her first day back to work after having twins!

They're great friends who attend events, share pals in common and even climb mountains together, so attending a charity reception where Holly Branson was giving a speech was no stretch for Princess Beatrice.

The royal wore a blue jacket over a black dress, with a black crocodile clutch at a cocktail reception and dinner ahead of We Day UK event on Friday.


Holly Branson, Sir Richard Branson's daughter, who co-chairs the day-long charity festivities, gave a speech to an audience that included her father, brother Sam Branson and actor Martin Sheen, on her first day back to work after having twins in December.

The royal legbomb! Princess Beatrice oozes Hollywood glamour as she attends new exhibition honouring Alexander McQueen


Princess Beatrice showed she has a royal flair for fashion as she turned up at the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition in a black tuxedo gown slashed to the thigh.

The 26-year-old guaranteed all eyes were on her, yet still managed to appear elegant as she flashed some leg on her way into the venue.

The slender princess inadvertently brought back memories of the 2012 Oscars, when pictures of Angelina Jolie 'legbombing' went viral on the internet.

Duty calls for Beatrice, the freeloading Princess

In these tough times, the Royals have to give us value for money.

With unfortunate timing, Princess Beatrice has given up her job and appears to be lurching from treat to treat with three dream holidays in the space of a month.

The timing is bad because the spotlight is still firmly on her father, Prince Andrew, who is at the centre of sordid accusations. He certainly doesn’t need any more negative headlines or publicity right now.

It's one of India's most colourful festivals and when Princess Beatrice was invited to get involved during a London cocktail party thrown to celebrate it, she just couldn't resist getting stuck in.

Luckily for Beatrice, that meant bindi accessories inspired by the sub-continent rather than the paint-throwing that characterises the real thing.

The 26-year-old was back on the fashion circuit for the second time in less than seven days, having stepped out for the gala launch of the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty retrospective last week.

Andy.

And judging by her nine foreign jaunts since Christmas, it seems Princess Beatrice is keen to follow in his extremely well-trodden footsteps.

Despite insisting she is ‘exploring her career options’, the unemployed 26-year-old has found time to jet away for luxury ski trips, sun herself on a Caribbean yacht and party with her friends in Greece.

Well, in one way she is of course, since her money comes from a trust fund and many of her expenses are paid by her father. That won't stop the Daily Fail in the future, though! I'm a bit puzzled by Beatrice. Work, especially enjoyable, satisfying work, defines most people. Yet she is perfectly happy drifting along with short term jobs and taking lots of holidays, one after the other. Maybe she is still hoping for a public role within the royal family and her father is pressing her to keep that hope alive.

Eugenie has clearly accepted that she isn't going to be a working member of The Firm but Beatrice I do think still is hoping for such a role but she should have realised by now that it simply isn't going to happen.

I think that her plan is to argue - "I can't get a full-time job and keep it for one reason or another" e.g. her details were made public due to the hacking of Sony, "so I need to work for The Firm or I will simply drift giving bad publicity". No doubt other reasons were used to justify why she left her other job. She is hoping that they will put her on the firm's duty roster simply because she has nothing else to do.

I also think ... if given that chance ... she would step up quite well and be a working princess for the firm in the way that Alexandra and Anne were in earlier generations. When she has undertaken charity work she has done so with dignity and grace.

However we do have reports that when she asked to do more in the Jubilee year both Charles and William said 'no - we won't ask The Queen to allow you to do more' but she still hasn't got that message it seems.

I wonder if her bond with her mother isn't hte reason she's being cut out. Charles might not mind Beatrice or Eugenie, but would in fact balk at having Fergie be supported by proxy by living off of her daughters and going to appearances with them. So Beatrice and Eugenie are paying the price for their mother's continued freeloading.

Eugenie has clearly accepted that she isn't going to be a working member of The Firm but Beatrice I do think still is hoping for such a role but she should have realised by now that it simply isn't going to happen.

I wonder when she will get that message; she is only damaging herself and making her uncle and cousin disgusted with her. It's not just the appearances she wants, but the posh living that comes with it. She could easily live well, but she wants the carefree security that comes with it. She wants the ability to swan around, wear an expensive frock, similar to how Princess Diana had it, how her mother had it.

Unfortunately for her, those days are past and royals are supposed to be more practical and more efficient.


Title: Re: Princess Beatrice & Eugenie: News and Pictures II
Post by: empirestate on March 30, 2015, 01:03:42 am
I believe the problem comes from the fact that William gets to play that same game with far less trash being thrown his way. He gets lambasted but the media still tip toes around him, still does the fluff pieces when he needs them. If it's true that Charles and William were the one to cut her off a few years back (and it seems very possible considering what that balcony looked like) I'd understand her annoyance.

It all comes back to her parents. William, despite needing to be far more busy than he is, has yet to completely milk his mother's goodwill dry so he can ride this out a little longer but Beatrice doesn't have that luxury, she has to live with stigma of two parents that many, if not most, can't stand and unfortunately she’s seemed to have picked up some of the crappier traits her parents exhibit. Her sister mentioned how she likes to be glamorous like their mother which, combined with her desire for an easy life, has left her floundering.

Eugenie is a royal but naturally more laid back so getting a relatively low key job, in a city that she can mostly disappear in works for her. England was a bit toxic so she simply said “F--- this noise,” and left, knowing that all the advantages she had a as a royal were going to remain intact. Beatrice can’t do that, her personality leaves her dead set on the spotlight.

I wonder if anyone else has had this thought: Could this behavior, gaining and leaving jobs at the drop of a hat, the vacations that have come so hard and fast it makes your head spin, essentially be Beatrice throwing a tantrum in response to the rejection? Like a child bawling in public, is she upping the cringe factor in hopes of getting a spot in the firm? It makes sense, she can’t really be punished, and her reputation is in the damn toilet at the moment so she’s nothing to lose aside from the patronages and those she does a rather good job so she’d be unlikely to be dumped. They’d be the first to defend her since, at least with them, she’s sparkling.

Post by: Kuei Fei on March 30, 2015, 03:36:42 am
I bet you're right. She's pissed that she won't be getting a free ride/official role and so she's pretty much doing damage to the BRF as 'punishment.'

I do think that she's inherently self destructive and as a result, we're seeing her on a downward spiral. She's kind of destroying herself and this is her way of punishing Charles and the RF for not giving her a means of keeping her going. She's going down and she's going to take the monarchy with her.

Party Princess Beatrice goes hell for leather as she makes 2am exit from ultra-cool East London private members' club

endless kebab shops and quirkily dressed locals, Shoreditch, London's hipster hub, might have been gentrified but it's still the last place you would expect to find a royal.

But that all changed last night when Princess Beatrice gave the area her seal of approval courtesy of a night spent partying at Shoreditch House.

The 26-year-old royal was joined by boyfriend, Virgin Galactic's Dave Clark, 31, and looked glamorous in her knee-length black leather dress.

HRH Holiday Addict: How 'full-time businesswoman' Bea, 26, had 11 money-no-object holidays in under six months
According to the Duke of York’s official website, Princess Beatrice Elizabeth Mary of York ‘works full time in business’.

The site also trumpets the many charitable pursuits of HRH (as her father Prince Andrew is so keen for her to be known). Its message is clear: the sixth in line to the throne is busy, self-sufficient and no burden on the public purse.

The only problem is, the activity that appears to keep her most busy is, well, holidaying. This week the 26-year-old jetted off to Verbier in the Alps and is enjoying her 11th break in less than six months

^Not saying bea doesn't like the luxury life, who wouldn't? She seems to ardor it, she loves holidays. However, two of these holidays happened in 2014. Not that it makes much difference, she vacations a lot . I can see why they mushed it together since it was close to january? It kinds of reminds when the press and the monarchy had the agenda to make kate seem like a hard working royal in 2012, they combined two years worth of events. Expect now the press is trying to make bea seem like a holiday addict to fit whatever agenda they have. They probably  aren't too far off from the truth though, bea makes it easy for them to label her as such because she lives a luxury filled life. As for the recent easter holiday, I don't buy it, for now.  First off the photo they used is back in 2012,  from what I've seen could be wrong there could be more photos. The original article reporting this is the the sun, which isn't known to be reliable, least in my book. Not saying she's not floating  to one vacation to another, just pointing things out

Interestingly enough on other news of Bea, the telegraph has reported:

Quote
Beatrice recently completed a finance course at a university in San Francisco and has said she is keen to build on her time working with the London investment firm Cabot Square Capital, where she spent a year in 2012.

Would Beatrice get all these freebies if she weren't dating an employee? Branson is not so generous that he doesn't want something in return. When he was supposedly being so 'generous' to Diana in letting him use his tennis court, he supposedly was trying to get her to sleep with him.

When Harry was dating Cressida, he was getting Branson to fork over chunks of change for his various trips like the polar hike and other events. I do thinkn Branson is in fact holding the strings as much as Beatrice thinks she is over Dave. Beatrice is being manipulated by Branson and Dave might be a pawn.

Either way, Dave should go to the US, give Branson the finger, drop Beatrice, and then move on.

Branson gets the royal seal. Remember that the Yorks have been to his island on several occasions. Branson is an anomaly in that he actually broke through the aristocratic ranks. Most people like him will make their money and get invites to certain events but they wont be amongst the elite. His influence has carried him far enough that he's gotten quite tight with the royals but he knows that he can't let up. So he keeps Beatrice sweet with the vacations because being seen with a royal is stamp of approval.

^Seems that way, there's been nothing since that fatal accident months back. Take into account the monumental amount of money that's been sunk into the project and you see why someone might just walk away. Anyway, it always seemed like Dave didn't really do anythign so his leaving doesn't seem like it'll do much more damage. Like i said, Branson needs the royals more then they need him so it's not like he'd have it in him to give Dave the cold shoulder as long a Beatrice was still his girl.

GIRL ABOUT TOWN: I told you! Bea's off to be a private equity Princess

Quote
She has been portrayed as a workshy princess who has been on 11 holidays in six months paid for by her privileged family and rich pals.

But now I can reveal that Prince Andrew's eldest daughter Beatrice has accepted a job at a top private equity firm in New York – as I predicted last week.

Beatrice is set to follow in the footsteps of her sister Eugenie and move to America permanently.

She is already flat-hunting in Manhattan, where her new office will be based, and sources tell me she wants to move across the pond 'as soon as possible'.

As I revealed last week, Beatrice recently completed a short finance course at a San Francisco university to prepare for her job search.

After several interviews in recent weeks, she is now in the final stages of negotiating a contract. And, as my impeccable source tells me, the job offer she accepted was one of several that she had on the table.

hope ... this is true.  :flower:

------------

Beatrice:  should be demonstrate/sampled for .... William / Charles that she will be like Anne/Duchess of Gloucester.
... and not as his mother (for Firm).
if she demonstrate/sampled that is positive (for the public) for the Firm ... or as the oldest royal (+ duties and - right.)

Because I doubt they(Firm /Charles/William)  want more drama and critical / negative pr  (  :tehe: they have contributed)
after all, the 'shell' end when the queen dies.

Must be nice to be a royal...private equity firms usually don't hire graduates in art-history. And I guess she won't have a problem with getting a work-visum for the US either.

Anyway, I wonder if this is a smart move, private equity companies are known for the scorched earth-business model: buy a company, sell the real estate, use the pension fund and sell what is left of it, or liquidate while firing the employees.
It is how Romney made his money.

Anyone with a sense of morality wouldn't consider that job. But well, knowing her parents, I guess morality wasn't part of the upbringing.

Interestingly enough,I saw dave update his twitter it says Future Astronaut with Virgin Galactic / Uber DRIVER location London. Either he got a job with Uber London or he's probably waiting till the big move to change his location.

Beatrice boyfriend Dave Clark is following her across the Atlantic after quitting his role as head of astronaut relations at Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic.
As I revealed last week, Bea has accepted a job at a top private equity firm in New York, and now Dave, 32, has joined taxi app firm Uber, which has offices in the city and in California

Princess Eugenie showcases her glamorous style as she mingles with silver screen stars at Tribeca Film Festival event

serious hipster style on the streets of New York in recent weeks, but Princess Eugenie proves she can dress to impress too.

The 25-year-old royal, who has been living in the US for a year now, looked glamorous as she arrived at the For The Love Of Cinema dinner in New York City on Thursday during the Tribeca Film Festival.

The cousin of Princes William and Harry looked serene in a chic white dress with gold embellishment.

Another week, another holiday for Princess Beatrice: Royal in fourth trip in a MONTH after visiting Bahrain for the Grand Prix


After 11 Holidays in under six months, you might have thought Princess Beatrice would be ready to put the brakes on her globetrotting.

But yesterday the underemployed 26-year-old was spotted enjoying the high life in an overseas location yet again, this time at the Bahrain Grand Prix .

I think  people are very nasty about bea but then again being a royal is all that seems to keep her living her life seriouslly.Its easy to blame her title for the bad things but forget all the good things it brings her and she seems to love about just saying.Truth is if she didnt had any title she probablly would be working by now and on  a real job not offered to her simply coz shes a princess.She wouldnt be getting freebys and free trips around the wolrd either.I dare to say her bf wouldnt even be inetrested in her seriouslly.As as as it seems its the tile that brings her the good things aparenlly.But it also bring some bad things.Are people suppose to feel sorry for pooor Bea coz she gets all she does and gives nothing in retunr or does anything.Simply coz get some critics ?Seriouslly.I dont see any of this as na excuse for her to just enjoy life and gives nothing in return.Her sister does why cant she?Even her trpubled mother seems to do more substantial things.I dont think the problem is the tile the problem is bea  :-

Bea need to grow up and stop acting as a poor thing coz she has a title and people are mean to her  :wopedo:
The day she drop her tile people will stop caring for what she does with her life/her daddys money and etc.While shes a royal people will worry abut what shes doing and right now whathever shes doing is not very nice or representative of RF.It doesnt matter who shes daugher of.Honestlly.IF she was vacationing while doing something as Harry has bem doing fo example.If in anyway she was impsirational for others or was even doing something of her life besides being lazy as she is she would definatelly not be so criticized.

Again  :wopedo:  She is arrogant, or have no idea?
''Speak ill, but speak to me.'' .....

The more I see, I do not believe  :June: ''she is sad because he can not work for the Firm.''
She does not want to be like Anne. Working for Firm.
I think Beatrice... more, more .... like Sarah. Celebrities with royal seal.

I agree with both  :thumbsup:

Theres no excuse for her at all.I dont think is nice to be criticized coz ure public person but then again i dont feel sorry for her when she does nothing to change anything.Everyone on her familly delas with the same shes the only one who keeps on doung nothing acting like a poor thing and still some insists on finding excuses for all she does.Or nothing.So ure not a working royal.Move on.Theres nothing more revolting than see someone who has it all and does nothing with it.No wonder shes so scrutinized coz she acts as she does and all in public and worst she dont seem to mind.I dare to say as someone else sugested shes doing it all on purpose LIke a spoitled child saying if u dont allow me to be a princess i will ridiculize myself and the familly and etc  :bored:

Shes so ridiculous at this point she dont realize the only things shes maiing is people deslike her even more and the only person being ridiculized is herself  :sigh:

I actually like bea and i see great potentcial in her but the way things seems to be going i have to agree she may end up getting worst reputation than her mother.EVEN Sarah at some point did suibstantial nice things before falling into a dark place.All bea does is Always for herself and just remian on this same place, confort zone.I think her problem is clearlly maturity.She has none  :sigh:

yes ... Beatrice is choosing this path.


The question of appearance or not the son of Diana.
No more excuses.  :flower:  sorry,but  .... is time past.
Just look at the love and respect that the public has with ZARA.



Title: Re: Princess Beatrice & Eugenie: News and Pictures II
Post by: camilapitanga on April 23, 2015, 03:53:18 am
Exactlly and i dont think Zara is perfect at all.Thats anothe example of how being son/daughter of someone in the RF dont really counts.
If they do nice things they will be congratulated and if they do bad things they will be criticized.

Zara was very criticized many times for many things.Even though shes not a titiled royal and lives on her own  :bored:
