Yes, I know that is the case, but there was a mention of the Duke of York's birthday. Had their been no mention would she have received her own entry?

To be honest, I don't think that Beatrice is cut out to be a Career Women, not all women are. She seems to come alive when she is doing her charity work and I feel it is a shame that passion is wasted.

I tend to agree.
I think what would make Beatrice happiest is a life somewhat like Sophie's, where she could combine family life (I do think she would like to be married and settled) with her patronages.

It's too bad she will not be an official member of The Firm; I suspect she counted on that and everything else now seems second-best.

I agree, I think her heart was in being a working member of the family and she's never really been interested in anything else in the same way.

Actually, I think Beatrice is set to have the best of both worlds at her fingertips. She can do as much charity works as she wants to and yet still call the shots on when, where, why and how without being on a rigid schedule from the "Firm".

Once married, perhaps raising a family and doing her charity work will be fulfilling for her. She's in the position now to make her life to be any way she wants it to be.

There is nothing to stop her doing charity work, if that is what she wants to do.. but she is nto required by the RF to be on the official roster.

That was my point. She can call the shots and do or not do whatever floats her boat without having requirements. She could marry and move to the far reaches of the earth and teach belly dancing and raise her family in a yurt if she really wanted to.

To me, it also shows that the charity work that she does do is because she wants to do it rather than it being expected of her as her role of a princess. I do think she realizes this and being a member of the "Firm" isn't something she'd be overly vocal about being excluded from.

All of this discussion on Beatrice's private affairs go to show me that *not* being a full time royal working for the "Firm" actually is in her favor. Her private life is just that. Private. Whatever decisions she makes on just about anything to do with her life are hers and hers alone.

I don't know. I think maybe she and Eugenie did hope to be take on as Royal wrorkers..but I think now they realise its not going to happen. ANd Boht of them do a little charity work.. I don't know if it is because they have a particular interest in certain charities or because they feel it is part of being a Princess to take on some causes. But if either of them chose to be full time devoting themselves to causes, and not taking a paid job.. that would be fine provided they don't tread on the toes of any other royal.. and Im sure they have enough money to live independently and do not need to work at a job.

It seemed to come naturally to both Beatrice and her sister. Just like accompanying Granny to the Maundy Thursday Service and helping with the flowers when they were young. Once Zara was fully involved in riding and education she turned Christmas and Easter over to them as well.

When Louise was old enough they trained her and now even James has been known to help. It is something that is handed off to the younger Royals and Beatrice and Eugenie were the first I really noticed. And how faithfully they fulfilled that task.

They have carried those early lessons into adulthood and they both undertake work for their few Patronages but mostly they work in fundraising which is hard but worthy work and they have involved themselves at a Joe Blogs level, running in sponsored marathons, etc.

Few patronages? They both until a few recent editions, had more then Kate. And the visits that they make to their patronages are very much the same thing working royals do. The only difference is that they don't get any recognition for those visits or any paid staff to help.

Yes Beatrice has taken it one step further, and should be applauded for that. Not 'well she mainly fundraises' like that's a bad thing, or lower then the cutting ribbons her cousins do. As a founder of Big Change, she actively raises money through things like marathons, triathalons, climbs and such.

Eugenie mainly does the tours. But then again she also works a full time job at an art gallery. Beatrice does work as well, though her schedule is far more flexible.

Any comment on 'few patronages' or limited work should also remember this is not their job. Unlike their cousins, being patrons is not their full time work. They both balance jobs on top of their patronages.

Both Beatrice and Eugenie are patrons of charities that personally mean a lot to them like Helen Arkell Dyslexia Society and the RNOH as well as patrons of the charities their mother set up and have founded charities of there own. I think they actually do quite a bit for non full time royals but it often doesn't get reported on at all. Half the info comes direct from Eugenie's instagram.

Yikes!!! I poked the bear. Sorry guys didn't mean to make their charity work sound "less" in some real way than that of the working royals when the exact opposite is true. Leading from the front, as they so often do, motivates other young people to get involved with fundraising and let's face it, it takes a lot of donations to raise the required amount for specialised hospital equipment, etc. So no, I love that they are prepared to get down and get their hands dirty with everyone else whether running a marathon, scaling mountains or riding bikes. Their bubbly input is invaluable.

Beatrice has shared her learning disability in a real and painful way, sharing the difficulties and celebrating the wins, showing youngsters that dyslexia and other such learning disabilities are an obstacle that doesn't have to ruin their lives. Eugenie's wedding dress was the "cherry on top" of her work with scoliosis. What a stunning and elegant wedding gown, with its dramatic and amazing back, showed every young sufferer that surgery wouldn't make them look ugly.

I think over the years I have probably been taking their work for granted because they have done it for so long compared to their cousins, William and Harry. Their happily collecting flowers for 'Granny' with brilliant smiles when they were young is a 'duty' like any other but Beatrice and Eugenie just made it part of the event.

Both have been gifted with wonderful natural smiles and that is their default expression. A smile is the ultimate icebreaker, helping them in many charities and causes and when I see the very rare photos of them doing their "second" jobs it always brings a smile to my face.

Lately we’re beginning to see more of Beatrice and Eugenie.
I know they won’t be full time royals, but i think it’s very likely that they’d be part time royals - something like Prince and Princess Michael of Kent.

I don’t know why, but as the Queen is aging, I see her giving some of her patronage’s to her York granddaughters
