According to this report in the Daily Express, Beatrice has declined the chance to undertake royal duties for the Queen.
She is in the middle of serveral periods of work experience, and is due to start a more prominent one next week. Her parents are fully supportive of her decisions.

This is good news for Beatrice and her future - a private individual who just happens to be part of the royal family. It is also the first sign of the reduction of who will do royal duties - in future the children and siblings of the monarch only along with the grandchildren of the heir it seems (and spouses of course).

Great news for Beatrice as she will have a life without the constant nastiness in the press and I bet that had some bearing on her decision and her father's acceptance of that decision.

How long do yo think it will take for the press and some members of the public to leave her alone and treat her like a private individual? The vitriol about her and her sister is unbelievable. I can just see people hollering that she "took" a job from someone who actually needs it, or she got her job even though she is unqualified. Ugh...I do not envy her at all.

I sincerely hope she finds something that she likes doing and provides her some fulfillment. I don't know very much about her, but what I have seen, I like quite a lot.

Although she will get those sort of comments to begin with as she continues to go underneath the radar and works every day people will begin to leave her alone - the first week or so there will probably be some media interest but that won't last long.

I saw that Zenouska Mowatt (Beatrice's cousin & HRH Princess Alexandra of Kent's grand-daughter) was also there. I found that she is/was a committee member for WSPA. Are you able to find any photo? What is Zenouska doing nowadays?

I couldn't agree more with you; Beatrice is highly unlikely to become a full-time working royal, so finding a job and carving a niche for herself in this life is a step in the right direction.

I want a real job: Prince Beatrice plans to become a career woman

Quote from the article:
Quote:
The 23-year-old princess, who is fifth in line to the throne, is undertaking a series of work experience placements as she battles along with thousands of other university graduates to find a career, Buckingham Palace said today.

The last thing I heard was that Zenouska was working for the Bridgeman Art Library in Paris.

I agree. Beatrice is not followed regularly during the daytime. I expect it will be like when she and Eugenie have had a summer job. There'll be a couple of pictures of them going to work, and that will be it until the next time they show up at a club with famous friends or at some high-society social event or an important engagement in the BRF's calendar.

At first I thought this was an old article, the same one I read at the time of Beatrice's graduation. It seems a rehash of previous statements.

I really doubt she'll be doing much battling either.
And although much of the commentary is rather harsh, I suspect they're right about a make-work sort of job being found for Beatrice.

Yes, well - it's Daily Mail after all.

Says it all, really. Those unnamed sources, friends and insiders really start getting on my nerves.

I can understand her wanting to participate though. She was lovely in the Andrew Marr documentary.

Agreed. I rather enjoyed her tour of The Little House; it was actually quite sweet.
Beatrice could become a valuable asset to the Monarchy if they figure out how to counter all the negative press she gets. Apart from Kate, Beatrice and Eugenie are now the only female royals of the younger generation who could work on behalf of the Queen. However, in order to do that, both Princesses will need to prove themselves; Princess Anne was criticised a lot, yet she kept doing her duty and now is one of them most popular members of the Royal Family.

Wouldn't she be more like Princess Alexandra..cousin to the current Queen...where Beatrice is niece/cousin to future King? B and E might look for a well off fellow to marry and then they could stay involved in "lesser royal" activities. However, I think that they'd do well to carve their own niche and eventually enjoy royal obscurity...living their own lives yet filling up the royal presence at state dinners and the like.

Perhaps Beatrice or Eugenie could "hostess" for her father when events are held at one of the Palaces. People like to have a princess around at these things. A well-dressed, friendly lady adds glamour to things.
