Great Ormond Street Hospital in London treats 200,000 in and out patients each year – children who are suffering from the rarest, most complex and often life-threatening conditions. They receive the best medical care that money can buy, but the government funding cannot meet these ever-rising costs, and that’s where the hospital’s charity, Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, steps in.In 2013 Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity aims to raise over 」50 million to ensure the hospital remains world class.

Love the photos of Princess Beatrice dancing. She looked divine, a wonderland ball sounds like fun, and what a great cause.

The comments generally are vicious; I think it has more to do with her parents than with Beatrice, though.

The fact that she doesn't have a job anymore and is only really reported on going to parties etc is used against her. If she had a full-time real job the comments could become more positive but she gave that idea away and her charity work isn't reported so all the general public knows is that she doesn't work and spends her days partying - and so the negative comments.

I think that one of the issues for Beatrice might be her dyslexia. She stayed on an additional year for her A levels because of issues. She did well, and she also did well in her degree. However, reading, writing and calculating speedly and accurately may have caused her issues.

This is speculation on my part, but I think it is a consideration. When she makes speeches at her charities, she learns them off by heart - no reading notes. This is what made me think about this as a possibility.

She either quit or was fired - I have heard both - but no reason was ever given.

Ugh--that is bologna on the part of the press and anyone who defends this point of view. HRH Princess Beatrice is 25 years old! As far as I'm concerned, she isn't doing anything that anyone else her age doesn't do--she's trying to find herself. She is trying to find a career and life path that suits her. Sometimes that means quitting a job or taking a break. Sometimes that means traveling the world. And sometimes it is confusing and hard to decide what you want to do with your life--especially in a family where most of you relatives and ancestry don't/didn't have a choice and know what their future looks like from the time of birth.

Perhaps things have changed since I was that age, and younger people think differently now, but in my opinion 25 is well and truly old enough to have made up your mind about what you want to do, at least for the first phase of your working life. I accept that it's fine to change direction if that first career choice doesn't work out, but you have to give it a fair shake and knuckle down and work at it for at least five years in order to find out. A year here trying some job, six months off on hols, a year somewhere else trying out some other job, another six months off partying, etc., just doesn't cut it in my opinion. People should be spending a good deal of time during their university years deciding what they want to do when they finish their degree, and the choice of electives should be made with a career goal in mind. They shouldn't be waiting till they've finished their studies to make that decision.

Things certainly have changed. For starters, earlier generations didn't go to college as readily as today's generation. Especially royals! Folks started families earlier than they do now. And women didn't really have much of a choice about what they did in life--now they do. Not only that, but it's not as if HRH Princess Beatrice is taking six months off just partying. She's doing what royals do--building up her list of patronages, attending charity events to bring attention to organizations that are doing good work. And she's spending time with her boyfriend.

Not only that, but keep in mind that these time tables ("A year here trying some job, six months off on hols, a year somewhere else trying out some other job, another six months off partying") are all pure speculation. We don't know how long Princess Beatrice held her last job.

She started the job in October 2012 and left it in June 2013 so we do know how long she worked - 8 months.

She studied History and History of Ideas and then went for a job in finance - which says she didn't think about a job or career before going to uni as the two don't really to together.

She is certainly old enough to have a clear idea of where she is going. My neice is the same age - 25 and her best friend is exactly the same age, born on the same day in 1988. Both have full-time careers and have worked consistently since leaving school along with going to uni - that is the normal thing for ladies I know, along with the partying and building a relationship not working for 8 months and then quitting and doing nothing other than party.

Speaking as someone who has her own issues when it comes to Math, an actual learning disability, I'm sad to say I completely forgot about Beatrice's Dyslexia. That makes perfect sense though as a reason for her leaving that particular job. Regardless of all the tricks and coping skills she's developed over the years, it would still take her a wee bit longer than the others around her to figure out anything written/printed out. Combine that w/having to also do the math needed for her job and...

Will we hear anything confirming that? Of course not, because I can't see Beatrice ever wanting to "use that as an excuse", because we all know what the Media will do to her if she ever did do that. Still...I think you're on the right track there cepe.

If her dyslexia affects her ability with maths, why the hell did she take a job in finance?!?
