Beatrice and Dave always look so good together; they appear to be a close and affectionate couple. You just don't get this feeling with William and Kate.

I think too that they can be more relaxed together in the open as a couple because the press and the world isn't going to go on a binge predicting a royal wedding the first time they're caught smooching. There's not been one hint of a rumor of a wedding yet if I recall... that's the perks of being royal but not THAT royal. ''

One bad photo of Kate glowering because of something.. could be the weather, could be PMS.. could be the press showing up.. she's glowering at Wills for someting says the press and they're splitsville. Bea and Dave aren't subject to that.. the press has more fun with her mother.

Another reason why no discussion of a wedding would be her age - she is only just 22 after all.
If she is still with Dave in three years I would expect the press to be predicting wedding bells then or even possibly next year after she finishes uni but not now while she is still at uni.

Some people have been saying that Beatrice will marry before William, and I can see why they would think that.

I can see her marrying next of the Queen's grandchildren actually as William has his SAR stuff and Harry has to actually establish himself in the army yet and Zara has the 2012 Olympics to aim for and then the 2016 ones while Mike still has at least one World Cup in his sights.

That being said I don't see her marrying for at least another three or four years.

I can see it too.. could even elope ovenight and it'd be what.. a three day sensation.

I do have to admit to something here... as weird as it sounds.. but when I first heard the name Dave Clark as a bf of Bea's... I thought woah.. flashback to the Dave Clark 5 of the 60s

Whatever happens.. I'll um.. be glad all over.

Of course unlike the rest of us an elopement won't lead to a legal marriage. Until Beatrice is 25 she must have the monarch's permission to marry and after that either the monarch's or the parliament's.

I'm really liking them as a couple too, more every time I see them. Beatrice and Dave seem so peaceful together, like they just get along really well without any conflict. You never hear rumours of drama between them or that they've broken up. It contrasts with Harry and even William's break-ups with their girlfriends.

I can see Beatrice marrying Dave when she is 25. Especially because he is significantly older--27 or 28 now? and he seems to have a secure and well-paying job. He seems like he would be at a point in life where he would be thinking about marriage soon. The other thing is that with the constant criticism of Beatrice and Eugenie's lifestyle and now Sarah's debt, marriage might provide Beatrice with a kind of security. Since Dave seems pretty well-off, if she married him, he could be seen as the one providing for her lifestyle rather than the taxpayer.

I think that Beatrice's father covers her expenses now, and his expenses are covered by HM. The exception would be protection officers when/if Princess Beatrice performs royal duties, clothes for official foreign visits, and renovations made to publicly-owned buildings where she lives.

Hi Osipi,

Loved your quote that you would be "glad all over". I remember the song. And like you when I heard Bea's BF's name, the first thing I thought of was the Dave Clark 5.

Princess Beatrice has come a long way since unflattering photos of her in an ill-fitting bikini went around the world.

In a little over two years, she has lost a stone and a half and run the London marathon.
Now those achievements have been matched by the accolade of being ranked alongside Hollywood darling Jennifer Aniston in a survey to find the world’s ‘hottest bikini body’.

It'll have to wait till later today, as it's very early AM where I am and I really should have been in bed a couple of hours ago. So I'll have to wait to look at the Mail Online's version of this article. Anyway...About that poll, Beatrice worked hard to attain that body she's got right now. While I do a half hour on a Stationary Recumbent Bike and then another half hour on an Ellipitical Machine here in the basement every night, unless I've gotten home from a trip like tonight or something else that popped up, it's one thing to have the disclipine to work out inside.

Beatrice did the majority of hers in the very early morning and outdoors regardless of the weather IIRC. Now the disclipine to do that, plus the fact she took the commitment to take part in the Cattapiller World Record attempt for the London Marathon so seriously, just so impresses the heck out me. Sure, it's just a silly poll, but Beatrice *earned* that spot by hard work. Good for her!!

I'll join the Beatrice and Dave Fan Club. I can't put my finger on it, but it's the same feel I get w/Zara and Mike and also Edward and Sophie. The only way I can describe is, that it's like they've known each other far longer than they have. If that makes any sense. They just oooze such a deep and loving bond, but they're also each other's best friend too.

It wouldn't shock me if they or Zara and Mike are the next ones of this Generation to marry, but as rmay286 Iluvbertie both stated the reasons why in their respective posts so very well, not for a couple of years at the least.

Princess Beatrice looks all puffed out as she runs Windsor Half Marathon | Mail Online

Quote:
She's credited running for helping her lose weight and even completed the London Marathon earlier this year.
But Princess Beatrice looked as though she was struggling as she ran in the Windsor
Half Marathon yesterday.
The 22-year-old royal looked exhausted and fed up as she made her way around the 13-mile course.

You know what I admire about Beatrice?

Before she did the marathon running in the spring, she was by her own admission someone who didn't like exercise and wasn't into physical activity. But not only did she train for the London Marathon in the spring, but it looks like she's kept it up, both the weight loss and the physical fitness. That actually takes a lot of discipline and dedication. I'm pretty sure I couldn't do it...well, not unless someone dragged me outside to the track every morning.

Well good for her. That's a lot more than Russo could do and she's doing it for a good cause.

I think that Beatrice shows determination and grit. She's also a great example to follow for those of us who should be more active; i.e. yours truly.

Beautiful! I can't believe she has lost so much weight and gained depth of beauty. For some reason it looks as if she's taller. In any event I congratulate her on her athleticism and looking just fine. I can't believe how beautiful she is. Quite the looks.

And rmay286 one of the best things I've ever purchased was a treadmill where I can run or walk at any given instant and enables me to find an avenue to achieving the exercise I can handle and feeling truly alive and healthy. I recommend of all things that to staying as healthy as you'd like.
