Princess Beatrice receives 2:1 in her history degree - mirror.co.uk

Beatrice has achieved a 2.1 in her degree of history and history of ideas (William also got a 2.1 in his degree).

I wonder what she will do with it or next now.

It wouldn't surprise me if she were to take on more and more royal duties, even if she does have a job. Many members of the RF are quite elderly and will probably gradually ease back on their commitments, William and Harry have their military careers, so someone needs to pick up the slack.

I thought it was very nice of her to lavish such praise on her tutors and the college.

We do, of course, have the reports from earlier this year that the girls have been told that they are to get jobs as they aren't going to be doing royal duties.

I do think if they have full time jobs then they can't be expected to also do royal duties.

It has been made pretty clear they are not wanted for Royal Duties. Has to do with their mother and the awkward situations she has caused. Charles wants the monarchy made smaller. They have to get real jobs. They will of course show up at the family events like Viscount Linley etc do. There is no reason why they shouldn't start working Peter and Zara both have careers, Princess Margarets children both worked. I wouldn't be surprised if Branson offered her some sort of job although what she is actually qualified to do is a good question. Yes she has a degree but what exactly can she do with it? I seem to remember some talk of her and fashion, which isn't a good idea especially after that hat! I do think she needs to do something on her own and not join up with her mother and her ventures.

But then who is to attend events, once the Kents, Gloucesters, Princess Alexandra do not?

As for her degree, perhaps she could work in a museum or library?

It has nothing to do with her mother at all.

It has to do with the aims of reducing the size of the royal family and was made clear to them as a result of Andrew and the peadophile earlier this year.

With a history degree she is able to do anything that involves research. With a degree in history of ideas she is also able to do things that involve thinking things through and seeing relationships between ideas and implementation - true humanitarian type degrees.

As someone with a history degree I do find it strange that people don't understand what use the degree is - research, communication and general understanding of a range of issues and cultures immediately come to mind.

When she has done charity work - which is what royals do - it has been largely associated with one or more of her mothers charities e.g. Children in Crisis of which Sarah is patron.

No one.

The idea, as I understand it, is that there will be fewer royal duties overall being undertaken as there will be fewer people to do the work and those that are doing the royal duties will be doing more.

Charles doesn't really even want his brothers doing too much - his sister yes but not even Andrew and Edward and certainly not their children. He does realise however that there are no other options for Andrew and Edward but he is certainly behind the reduction of the size of the royal family and this impacts on Beatrice and Eugenie first - with them being told to get real jobs (and also shows up with things like no HRH for Edward's children).

Harry's children will also not be called upon in the future.

Kate, William, Harry and Harry's spouse will have to do the work of the Kents, Gloucesters along with pick up those of the Duke of Edinburgh and The Queen (those that Charles can't pick up).

Simply put - fewer working royals = fewer royal duties and fewer organisations etc with a royal being involved.
