A poignant and very unusual photo of Princess Diana carrying Beatrice on her back.

ROYAL SISTERS TO HONOUR QUEEN MOTHER



British royals PRINCESS BEATRICE and PRINCESS EUGENIE are being confirmed in the late QUEEN ELIZABETH, THE QUEEN MOTHER's favourite chapel, in honour of her memory.

The two teenage daughters of SARAH FERGUSON, DUCHESS OF YORK and PRINCE ANDREW will receive confirmation from the DEAN OF WINDSOR, THE RIGHT REVEREND DAVID CONNER - the priest who said the final prayers for their much-loved great grandmother moments before her death (MAR02).

The ceremony will take place at the Royal Family's All Saints chapel in Windsor, England, next month (JUN05), and despite speculation that the ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY would be the first choice, Prince Andrew was determined to pay tribute to the deceased matriarch by recruiting Conner.

A friend of Prince Andrew says, "All Saints is the parish church for Royal Lodge, which used to be the Queen Mother's home and is where Andrew now lives."

Beatrics Turns Cover Girl to Mark 17th Birthday

Prince Andrew's attractive elder daughter has turned glossy magazine cover girl to mark her birthday. Princess Beatrice, who celebrates her 17th in August, has just been photographed for the cover of UK society mag Tatler.

Styling for the shoot, which took place in a studio in Fulham, was overseen by the renowned Isabella Blow, while the fledgling model's sister, Eugenie, and mum Sarah also came along to lend their support.

The Duchess of York has recently made headlines with a high-profile modelling assignment of her own, appearing wrapped in just a swath of lace for a coffee table book published in aid of charity

Thanks for the updated news on Beatrice. I think it is very honorable that she and her sister will honor the Queen Mother during their confirmation. And I look forward to seeing the cover of Tatler and the pix. I hope it works out for her and doesn't cause problems down the line with the media and paparazzi. Thanks.

I think it's quite a dangerous road for Beatrice to go down. Appearing on the cover of a glossy is like inviting the paps in so to speak. Also it didn't do her cousin, Zara Phillipos any good when she appeared in Hello. Mnay people critized her for it. The only way she got away with it was that shes a private person - no HRH so no responsibility. Beatrice is different and she should remember that, like her parents should have when they sold intimate pictures of her and her sister to Hello when they were babies.

I'll be very curious to see what the photos (and I'm assuming article) is like. Any ideas on what the Queen and the rest of the royal family think of this?

I'm so happy for Beatrice! I think it must be every teenager's dream to be on the cover of a magazine like Tatler.
I don't think it will make to paparazzi coming after her. She's a princess, she's bound to get attention from the paparazzi; You can already see that there's a growing interest in pics of her... and besides, she's been on hello! and other magazines all her life, don't see what a Tatler cover would change.
i don't think the family will mind as long as the pictures are nice and she has enough clothes on
i so can't wait to see those pics

I really have to disagree, Martine. As far I as I can recall and please correct me if I'm wrong but Beatrice hasn't posed for any other photographs that have appeared on the front of magazines. They have been photo opportunities arranged by the palace. I'm not saying that it's wrong for Beatrice to do what she has done and I'm sure she had the Queen's permission or she wouldn't have done it. I just think she should be careful.

Thank you very much Martine for all the pictures of Beatrice and Eugenie at the Queen's Cup and at Trooping the Colour. :)

More and more Beatrice is looking like such a mix of both of her parents.

I think Eugenie is the real beauty between the two York girls. She has a quiet serenity about her; she always seems very poised and graceful, happy to be in the background (which I think she gets from Prince Andrew), whereas I get more a sense that Eugenie likes a bit of attention now and then.

Awesome pictures Martine.

I agree that I think that Beatrice seems to look more and more like both of her parents and that Eugenie seems to indeed be the real beauty between them. (But hey, that's just my opinion.)

PRINCESS SAFFY: Profile of Princess Beatrice

PERHAPS the bouncer didn't think it was quite right for a teenage girl to be out clubbing with her mother. Or perhaps he just weighed up the two striking redheads, one in her 40s, the other in her late teens, who turned up at the fancy London members' club L'Equipe Anglaise one night last month and decided they didn't quite look the part.

Whatever, when the couple reached the door he politely but decisively turned them away. He only changed his mind when someone in the queue remonstrated.

'We said, 'But you've got to let her in, she's the Duchess of York and that's her daughter, Princess Beatrice,'' says a fellow party-goer. 'It was obvious that he hadn't recognised her at all. Sarah Ferguson seemed quite relaxed. She turned round and flashed us a big grin, then Fergie and her daughter were whisked through.

Once inside, 'they didn't seem to know what to do with themselves,' says the source. 'They were sitting on their own like wallflowers. After a while I saw them chatting to quite a few people and they stayed quite late.'

It's an odd vignette, not least because most 16-going-on-17-year-old girls probably wouldn't be seen out on the town with their mothers.

But then this isn't just any teenager. Princess Beatrice Elizabeth Mary Windsor is the Queen's granddaughter and fifth in line to the throne, behind the Prince of Wales, William, Harry and her father Prince Andrew. Until now, she has remained relatively hidden from the spotlight that inevitably falls on the inner circle of royals. But this is shaping up to be a big summer for the decorous young girl on whom, it has been said, the Queen pins a lot of her hopes.

This month Beatrice is sitting her GCSEs, her first public exams, and in August she will celebrate her 17th birthday, a milestone that will be marked by a 'coming-out' appearance as a cover girl for the September issue of society bible Tatler, to which she has also given an interview.

What she will do after her GCSEs -- she is taking them a year later than her contemporaries, partly because she was very young for her school intake and partly because she struggles with dyslexia -- remains to be seen.

But the Tatler shoot was, by all accounts, a great success. The Princess was styled by the magazine's eccentric fashion director, Isabella Blow and interviewed by its editor, Geordie Greig, who says: 'Beatrice was charming and delightful, she really was.'

Well, he would say that. More of a compliment is the positive feedback from other Tatlerites, a notoriously unforgiving and bitchy lot.

'She's a nice girl,' said one. 'In some photographs Beatrice can look as if she's been unlucky enough to inherit the worst of her father Andrew (the goggling eyes and heavy jaw) and of her mother (the tendency to put on weight and the red hair) but in fact she's sweet and innocent and young looking for her age. She is pretty, too -- she comes across like a prettier, more demure version of her mother.'

Bea, whose mother famously put her on a diet at the age of eight, saying she looked 'chunky' in a swimming costume, will also be pleased to hear that the verdict is that she is, 'slim, though not in a skinny supermodel Jacquetta Wheeler kind of way.'

And, as she blossoms, those who know her best wonder if this might also be the year in which she steps away from her mother's shadow and shows herself to be not just Fergie's rather prim and proper little girl but a headstrong young woman in her own right.

Fergie is, of course, a real party animal -- as her dishevelled appearance this week at 3.30am outside Boujis, a London nightclub more usually frequented by Prince Harry and William and their raucous friends, testifies.

BEA -'the responsible one' as her father calls her -can sometimes come across as a Saffy figure compared with her mother's outrageous and Absolutely Fabulous exploits.

She sings in the school choir, has a healthy interest in sports from lacrosse to skiing and polo (Jack Kidd, brother of supermodel Jodie is one of her tutors), barely drinks, has never (yet) been pictured smoking and, when she was kissed on the cheek by the film star Leonardo DiCaprio responded with an old-fashioned, and rather endearing: 'Crikey!'

Some might think that Fergie seems to have done her best to bring up a hellraiser in her own image - dolling both Beatrice and her younger sister Eugenie up with makeup to attend a premiere when they were only 13 and 11, for example - but Beatrice persists in remaining sensible.

She hasn't even inherited that oh-so-royal way that Prince William, for example, has of taking wealth and possessions for granted.

One of her close friends is Zenouska Mowatt, the daughter of Paul Mowatt and that other royal black sheep, the Queen's rebellious young cousin Marina Ogilvy, who are now separated. The pair spend hours sitting in Bea's bedroom, chatting like any other young teenagers and Zenouska recently emerged with a dress that Bea had grown out of and thoughtfully passed on.

While she may not have her cousin Zara's trendy dress sense, or her other cousin Harry's flair for misbehaving, she does seem to enjoy going out -- albeit with her mother.

'They go everywhere together,' says one socialite. 'You see them at parties all the time and if you spot one you know the other will almost certainly be there somewhere. When Fergie talks about how chummy they are she's not just saying it for effect. It's true.'

The extent of this mother-daughter socialising helps to explain why, last autumn, when Fergie gave an interview in which she joked that she liked to go out 'on the pull' with Beatrice, 16, Prince Andrew hit the roof. 'He got straight on the phone to Fergie and went ballistic,' reports a friend. Usually the couple, who divorced in 1996, get on well, but at times Andrew likes to pull rank. He is still the Big I Am,' says the friend.

The incident is a reminder of how much Beatrice -- and younger sister Eugenie, 15 -- have had to put up with over the years.

'In many ways it's a miracle that they have turned out so normal,' says one royal observer. 'If these were the children of a working class family who had fallen on hard times, their traumatic background would be enough to explain away bad behaviour or any personality defects.'

It's a fair point. Beatrice was only three when her parents' separation was announced, and although Andrew and Sarah now have a much closer relationship than many other divorced couples there have been difficult times.

She has had to watch the painful spectacle of her mother being stripped of her title and frozen out by relatives.

When Princess Diana died she and Fergie 'weren't on speakers', a row that Fergie blamed for causing a rift between Princes William and Harry and younger cousins Beatrice and Eugenie. Now, while her daughters spend Christmas with the Royal Family at Sandringham, Fergie is conspicuously not invited.

This has, she admits, caused some embarrassing moments with her daughters: 'I think [Beatrice and Eugenie] both want to know why I am excluded from the Royal Family and family engagements.'

Then there have been the damaging and upsetting headlines about their mother's finances, her weight ('the Duchess of Pork') and the ever- changing staff, some of whom the two girls became quite close to.

JANE ANDREWS, for example, was Fergie's dresser for many years and doted on the two young princesses. After Fergie fired her she continued to send them birthday presents and to receive handwritten notes of thanks in return. One can only imagine their distress when she was convicted of murder after driving a kitchen knife through the chest of boyfriend Thomas Cressman.

Then there have been the men who rushed through Fergie's life, and thus those of her two daughters. First, there was oil heir Steve Wyatt. Then, Fergie took up with her toe-sucking financial adviser John Bryan, to whom Beatrice is said to have become close. After that there was Fergie's flirtation with Italian Count Gaddo della Gherardesca.

All in all, Beatrice seems remarkably unscathed by it all. Those who know her say it would be a mistake to believe that she is simply a quiet, if charming, young lady. It is true that she is beginning to show signs of coming out of her shell.

With a host of young men taking an interest, perhaps it is no surprise that Fergie prefers to bat off rumours with jokes about how both of them would like to find a chap -- and also to remain close to her daughter's side.

Even so, over the past year Bea has been photographed with a number of good-looking young men. There has been James Green, with whom she went to Wimbledon and who was later expelled from Harrow amid suggestions of a drug scandal.

She was pictured holding hands with Nikolai Bismarck, the great-great-grandson of Prince Otto van Bismarck. Carlo Carello, son of the former chairman of the Italian car manufacturer Fiat has also been touted as a possible boyfriend.

But one relationship provides more insight into Bea's personality than any other and that is the rapport she struck up with Peaches Geldof when they met at a ski resort this winter.

If Bea and the outspoken Peaches can find things in common then one thing is for certain. Fergie's nights out on the town with her eldest daughter must surely be numbered.

Princess Beatrice has an astonishing resemblance to Queen Victoria.

Princess Eugenie has a very beautiful face. She resembles Prince Andrew, The Queen, and the Queen Mother.
