The History of Ideas at Goldsmiths is a three-year course which combines the broader study of history with a more specific focus on the nature of ideas and their role in history.

Princess Beatrice arrives for her first morning lectures - Telegraph

The flame-haired Royal has decided to take up a place to study textiles and design at Goldsmiths College in London

I really like Beatrice, but again: this dress I hope, her studies will inspire her for better outfits.

Considering how the British press love to criticise the Yorks is it any wonder that the public are so catty.

The way the British press carry it is a wonder the British royals don't just say 'stuff you have a president and seen how much that will cost'

Her parents would pay for her clothes, meaning that the Queen would be footing the bill as Andrew is supported by his mother not the taxpayers (his civil list payments are reimbursed by the Queen).

The comments section and the articles seem to spur each other on as far as the Yorks are concerned.

Thank you for the link,Queen of the Light!The girls look really good & happy.
I'm afraid I can't say the same thing about Sarah.She looks aged in these pics.

I doubt it was because of her position, she doesn't really have one. Why is History a surprise?

I agree Melina, she does appear to have aged about 10 years. Her daughters look fair better.

First of all, Beatrice does has a position. Her position is #5 in line for the British throne. Considering that both William and Harry have a desire to serve in the British Armed Forces, anything can happen to them. So the concept of Queen Beatrice is not totally crazy. Most likely, as they marry and have kids she will fall further and further down the line.

In regards to Sarah, for goodness sake...she looks like a woman who is 49! Older woman really can't win.... if they age naturally they are criticized for aging (and shown on the pages of magazines and newspapers as if they committed a crime) and if they attempt to stop the aging process they are criticized for trying to look young and not aging gracefully. She looks exactly how she is supposed to look...a 49 year old woman who has most likely spent too much time in the sun.

On another note...Beatrice does look good. I do wish she cut her hair though...not to short...but just to see how it looks.

I agree with Zonk... I'd rather see a woman age naturally than one made completely out of plastic (ie: Joan Rivers). Sarah looks fine! She's a woman whose had 2 great kids. As for Beatrices credit card and the catty comments on the Daily Mail... give the poor girl a break. Royals are people too and they aren't spared from anything.

I agree. It was maybe the best outfit in which I ever saw Beatrice. It flattered her figure so much and was simply elegant, she looked stunning.

As for Sarah - yeah, she turns 50 this October. She doesn't look that bad (IMO I sometimes think because of her outfits and hairstylings she looks today far better than twenty years ago ).

As they wore different clothes from the ones in the gallery
posted by queenofthelight and the pics in Sarah's thread,
it seems to have been another day. Maybe August 30.

I couldn't agree more, Janet. It really flatters her figure. Her waist is so small!

Well she certainly has some nice legs. No doubt inherited from her mother.

Sarah has said in interviews that Beatrice is "reading history" so I think the article about her studying the "History of Ideas" is the right one. Maybe she used to want to study fashion design, but I'm pretty sure she is actually studying history.

The photographer should be ashamed of himself--that was so inappropriate!
