Well, Beatrice hasn't been seen with Dave in public for about 2 months, and no one has come out to contradict the story, so I think that they did split. If the split wasn't over marriage, then maybe it would be different, but so far the rumour is that they split because Dave didn't want to marry her. If he didn't know he wanted to marry her, after 10 years and at the age of 32, then if Beatrice were my friend I would hope for her to find someone new. Every girl (and guy!) should be with someone who loves them enough to be sure about them. Not sure at the outset, necessarily, but sure after 10 years.
Rumors are just rumors. We have no idea what's really going on with Bea and Dave. I'm just saying that this story is to be continued.

Well, if it took him 10 years to figure out the ramifications of marrying Beatrice, he's not the sharpest knife in the drawer! If indeed they really split for that reason, then the only reason he can have stayed with her so long would be "connections", and that would make him pond scum. However, for Beatrice, it would have been devastating. Nobody likes to be used and certainly not publically humiliated.

I would doubt it. Beatrice has spent ten years exclusively with Dave so unless she met someone and lightening struck and it was "True Love", then she will be a real "Princess Bride"!

Now that I think about it, Nico and Dave kind of remind me of each other for some reason.
I don't claim to be an expert, but I did read in another paper that, while Beatrice got a lot of criticism for all those holidays, it was actually Dave who couldn't resist, and Beatrice has trouble telling him no.

That doesn't rule out their reunion; in fact, if the invitations start to dry up, it wouldn't surprise me to see Dave come crawling back.
I hope Beatrice knows better now.

When Dave worked for Branson I assumed he needed to mingle w/ the very wealthy to sell them those future flights into space. Now that he's w/ Uber it wouldn't matter so much, I assume.
W/ Beatrice reportedly wanting to go into managing other people's money, she'll need to mix and mingle w/ those who have money to persuade them to invest in whatever fund/venture she's w/.
That said, last year Bea and Dave where on Russian oligarch Abramovich's yacht in August (which I dubbed the 'Oprah trip' due to the photos of Bea and Oprah chatting on a neighboring yacht) this August there's been no mention of a similar jaunt for Bea nor has Dave surfaced as being on vacation anywhere.
Sometimes couples stay together long after the relationship's sell by date has passed - it may be convenience, habit, or in some cases one partner wants it to end but the other doesn't and the partner who wants it to end doesn't have the courage to end it or tries to end it but the clinging partner persuades them to keep trying to 'make it work.'
I can't say what the situation is w/ Bea and Dave, but I find it interesting that after he changed jobs & relocated to the USA Bea followed. At the time I assumed it was something they had planned together, but now I'm not so sure, taking the USA job may have been Dave's way of gently finishing the relationship, figuring time and distance would help it reach a natural or less painful end which was thwarted by Bea promptly relocating as well.

Beatrice looks quite nice there.
I guess she is still in the USA; (I hope that isn't because she hopes to reconcile with Dave Clark).

I hate when the Daily Mail makes it seem like Bea is on vacation 24/7. I don't know about anyone else but I haven't seen or heard about her since July,(unless you count the breakup)because she most likely is WORKING.

I think the couple is still talking to each other of course. I think there's more to come from those two.

Well since Dave was there Thurs. and Bea on Friday it wasn't a date. Interesting that Dave shows up and the very next day Bea shows up.

Looks to me like Dave Clark is busy networking!

I think William was right about him, he's a user.
Now he's working in the USA and doesn't need Beatrice any more, so he's finding a new social crowd.

She's better off without him. But she doesn't look happy.

Not sure that's fair to say.

I just think Beatrice and Dave dated a bit too long. When Beatrice got to her mid-twenties, 24/25, and there was no proposal (always supposing she wanted one, of course,) then questions should have been asked then.

If a relationship drifts on for nearly a decade and there's still no living together, no ring, no sound of wedding bells, starting a family etc, then IMO there's something up, and maybe it's just gone into affectionate friends territory.

I don't think they'll get back together, but the DM, in their usual fashion, probably photographed Beatrice at a boring part of the afternoon. Perhaps when waiting for a match to begin. Her escort looks a bit bored too and I don't think we should read too much into it, actually.

I always used to think Dave's smile must have been sewn on, we saw it so constantly!

That doesn't indicate a red flag to you?
