I suspect if she were dressing a top model, her choices may well work.

Anyways, my own view is that there is a host of career options open to Beatrice and Eugenie, and they will do well to pursue them with a gusto. If they are seen to work hard and do well in their careers, they may well be useful additions to the working BRF, if required, at the appropriate juncture, in the fullness of time.

Maybe she is interested in history but didn't want to study history as a main topic because she didn't want to have to do nonstop with the history of her own family. But I think the basic methods of academical research and scientific studies are the same at the more "artistically" orientated Goldsmith College of the University of London as they are in other institutes of historical research of that university. So just wait and see where she will end up. I think fashion is talked about as a potential choice because it is one interest of her that is known while others are not so public knowledge.

I think that Princess Beatrice might be better leaving the fashion industry to the likes of Victoria Beckham and Stella McCartney.

Beatrice, I feel, will work in a socially more helpful and humanitarian field.
I can see her working in museums, aide organisations, Church of England charities, research, education and training, British industries, health care, or the military.

Royal engagements would couple well with private work that involves not only the privileged. The fashion industry mostly services the wealthy.

Royalty services the non-trendy, the needy, the elderly, the environment, the traditional as well as respecting all cultures and religions and supporting the arts, sports, works and trades that people practise.
Where Royals spend their time is not influenced by popular vote nor political persuasion.

That is the benefit of having a non elected Royal family... and the reason why it's important that they maintain their practise of religion ... so to cultivate reflection, kindness and self meditation and evaluation. Royals have to be dominated by something higher than profit and fame. (That's not to say that they are perfect but that they recognise that they are definitely not perfect; they are not Gods nor ruled by the 'Gods' of society - money and power.)

Princess Beatrice, while having fun with fashion, will work in an area that requires depth of compassion.

Brain storm ... Actually, Beatrice could start up an innovative select line of robust clothing made from pure wool/woollen blend and made in Britain. The range could be really practical - well made over coats, jeans, socks and jumpers that look at home on any street. She could set up a 'Two For One' shop. People would pay twice as much as they normally would. The buyer then takes their purchase home and, at the same time, ( this is the clever part) an IDENTICAL item is placed in a mini van ready for distribution to the needy. C of E charities and The Salvation Army would be well placed to hand out the clothing. Similarly, Beatrice could design a cotton/woollen garment or two for children to be sold at the same shop. The duplicates of these could be given to The Red Cross for use in overseas emergencies ... There, that's Beatrice all worked out - poor girl!

I'm not really sure.Beatrice has never made a public statement of what career she wants.Just because she likes fashion does not mean she wants to be in it.The same thing with her degree in history.Maybe she has interest in it but does not want a career in it.Who knows.

I saw in a interview that she did for her 18th birthday that she wants to "be like her mum".Maybe that means doing chairity a lot.

But I hope she takes advantage since some of her cousins and family did not have a choice of having a career.

I don't think that will ever happen. There is no reason to 'announce' what she's doing.

One of her cousins didn't have a choice. And even that is not a lock, William could surprise us and decide that he doesn't want to be king. A long shot that I'm not willing to put money on but still there.

As for being like her mother. Yes, Sarah does have plenty of good examples but I think it'd be best to go through the Firm for help with that rather than her mother.

I'm not so sure that Beatrice wants to go to work. If I had a full purse of my own or adequate spending money from another source, I don't know if I would work either.

I wonder whether there's a possibility that Beatrice has been looking for work and not finding anything. There could be a perception among employers that hiring her would be a headache: that she might want a very flexible schedule, that they'd be accused of hiring her because of her social status and not for her employability, that she wouldn't be as good a worker as someone who really needed to work, etc. I've been reading some articles in American Vogue by Princess Elizabeth von Thurn und Taxis. Is there any reason why Beatrice couldn't do something like that? She writes articles about culture and travel. http://www.vogue.com/vogue-daily/art...t-berlin-baby/

That's certainly a great possibility, it goes alongside the theory of a royal getting a job over a commoner getting one. The press and public would put it down to connections, favours and even bribes. That's not really going to help the York girls.

I really think if Bea was looking for work that we would hear about it. Showing up at parties and holiday spots isn't good PR but a Princess trying to find a job would be. It could be that she just wants to party she doesn't need the money but if that is the road she has chosen then she can't complain if the press have a go at her!

We have. I don't know which thread it was in but Diarist posted a part of an article that stated Beatrice was looking for internships I believe.

According to BP, at the time of her graduation, she was supposed to be looking for some internships but that was four months ago and ever since then all she appears to have done is party and holiday.

If she is looking for internships she could be keeping a low profile about it as she wouldn't want to put undue pressure on the company to take her over someone else. According to the DM there are on average 23 people for every job in Britain at the moment so she might be biding her time - but she needs to be seen to be doing something constructive and soon - even accompanying 'Granny' occasionally while 'Grandpa' rests wouldn't hurt her image - not to do it officially but just as a companion - like Sophie does at Christmas.

Many of the employment possibilities suggested for Beatrice are in highly-competitive fields, and she'll be in for criticism if she gets one!

Museums have been mentioned; I don't know about Britain, but many in the US have a hiring freeze. The few jobs available have many many applicants with much better qualifications than Beatrice has.

It's the same in publishing or fashion, many more applicants than positions.

There are so many organizations out there that need volunteers. Beatrice could even take a short-term position in a Commonwealth country to help out with a project. I have nothing against Beatrice socializing, but I do think that she needs to be seen doing something "to give back" as well.

I think Beatrice will marry within the next two years. I don't think she'll ever work.

Do you think she won't work because she's married or because she doesn't want to?

There are a number of professions she could go into, if she really wanted to. Yes, there are a number of applicants for every job, but if she truely gets the job on her merits, she should not worry about any adverse press comment. She could go into Accountancy, the Law, teaching, catering, Media (Production), Academia.... the list goes on and on. Its the willingness to commit and work hard that employers (and the British public at large) will look at.

Unfortunately, I think that you are spot-on. I would be very surprised if we ever see Beatrice do any real work. She does not appear to have any ambition to be either a working royal or to work in the business world.

I don't think I would classify the possibility of her never working as "unfortunate." I know I enjoyed being a housewife. Although Beatrice has a college degree that is no indication as to whether or not she is suited to or wants to do any kind of work. She should have her own choice.

Unless you have a cleaning lady, a housekeeper, a cook, a chauffeur for all the errands and a gardener...being a housewife is work. So is being a stay-at-home mother (provided you don't employ nannies) and it's not an easy job.

If Beatrice is not going to be a working member of the BRF and the public purse is no longer funding any of her expenses...ie.security, then she definitely should be allowed to live her life as she chooses.
