Beatrice at Wimbledon with Edo
Princess Beatrice, the eldest child of Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, just turned 35.
She has since earned the titles of “great role model” and “relatable Princess” among the Royal Family.
She has been referred to as the Royal Family’s “secret weapon” and is married to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.
She is the niece of King Charles III and the granddaughter of the late Queen Elizabeth II.
The royal, who has served as one of King Charles’s seven Counsellors of State for almost a year, has been compared in popularity to Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh, Princess Anne, and Kate, Princess of Wales.
Beatrice has ‘come into her own’, expert claims
Former BBC royal correspondent Jennie Bond told OK!: “Beatrice has put up with a lot of pressure and a lot of criticism in her life but she has really come into her own.
“We already have a divorced Queen on the throne. Now we have a relatable Princess.
“Beatrice is a stepmother, who talks publicly about her dyslexia and who has more recently had to deal with the trauma of her mother, Sarah, Duchess of York, having breast cancer.
“It makes her much more accessible. She seems to be universally liked.”
Princess Beatrice is a ‘relatable Princess’, expert claims
Royal expert and editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, Ingrid Seward added: “She has all her mother’s charm. She remembers people’s names and is so nice to everyone. In fact, she’s a natural with people from all walks of life.”
While many of the royals are working royals, which means they perform official engagements, Beatrice is an exception.
The Princess chose to work a regular full-time job in addition to attending many royal events as part of her duty to uphold the Crown.
Princess Beatrice, who is ninth in line to the throne, decided to pursue a career in banking.
She started out as an analyst at a wealth management company and eventually rose to become Afiniti’s Vice President of Strategic Partnerships.
Working a nine-to-five job may seem un-royal, but Prince Andrew admitted that was exactly the balance he wanted for his children.
