So to put this in a nutshell it seems a good part(or perhaps the main part) of the PO´s job is to think for her.....

I hate to put it like this but I just think that Bea is a silly little girl and has the potential to be a real PR liability for the BRF. The Queen and Charles probably need to put their heads together and decide how best they can prevent the York girls from being a future liability. In the past when people have comokained about her sense of dress and her size I have argued that Bea is very young and needs a little time to find her own two feet, but her behaviour over the last 6-12 months has only proven to me what I had always known!

We have special schools/homes for that.

What she needs is a mind/er.

I go with common sense. She's old enough to know better.

We know Bea is in trouble when avid fans of hers (like Bella) are endorsing a dose of common sense for her!

Needless to say the Lent term has already started, and Bea had better knuckle down and start studying seriously. If I was in her place, I would make damned sure I would not be seen out partying too often now..... just not appropriate. That said, I ave io doubt there might be 3-4 sightings of her in the coming weeks outside Nobu or some other expensive eatery or night club!

I don't believe they asked them to stop them from doing anything stupid because my friend said Barbara Bush the Senior TOLD them to stop. And of course, NOBODY goes against that battle ax!
I was hoping HM would do the same with her granddaughters!

I take umbrage with your saying that Barbara Sr is a battle ax! (Ha!) Rather she is a Very strong leader of her "Clan"!!
I hope that you are not suggesting that HM is unable to lead Her clan but it seems that way. The York princesses need guidance and it should come from the Queen, imho. Whether they would listen remains to be seen...

I tried to change my post but once again it got erased. I was trying to make a light-hearted post but it came out wrong. The First post I wrote was Perfect. This one is NOT!! My apologies to Russo.

I don't think that Princess Bea is as smart as Buckingham Palace likes to say. I think that Eugenie is the smart one - I just wish that she would distance herself from her older sister.
Of couse, Fergie has always had a wild streak in her - I guess that the apple doesn't fall very far from the tree.
It makes me think of Chelsy who is tucked away in Leeds studying hard. This is the one whom I would suspect to be out partying but she is not.
London has too many temptations and Bea needs to knuckle down and get serious. She has already had her gap year where she could play. Guess Andrew will be supporting her for the rest of her life.
Of course, she is studying fashion - like she has an apptitude for fashion - NOT! She is a walking disaster fashion-wise. This young woman has no talent for fashion and is wasting her time.

Entirely my view. Thats not to say as a young student she can't be seen out partying, but there needds to be some moderation. That said, the numebr of times she appears in the press does seem to have come down in the last few weeks.

I thought she was doing a history degree, and not one in fashion.

She's doing a history degree, the fashion thing was bandied about by the press as part of their guessing before the information was released as to what exactly she was studying.

How do you know that, Pamk?
There are so many successful stylists that really are walking fashion disasters!
Just think of Karl Lagerfeld, Galliano, Cavalli ..............

I was going to make a similar post. One of my dearest friends always looks as if she has been dragged through a hedge backwards and even if she spends £1000's on a dress, it looks as if it came out of someones rubbish bag..... but, she can put an outfit together for any of her friends and make them look and feel like a million dollars.
