Miss Garnett's reasoning is theoretically logical, except for the fact that I think that there will be NO royal weddings in 2012 because of the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics. Beatrice is of course probably not going to be a full time working Royal, but she is still royal........... that would rule out a Christmas Engagement and I think that if the engagment is announced tomorrow, there is not enough time to fit in a Royal wedding with the Queen's programme for the remainder of the year now mapped out....
............................which means that I do not think we will see another Royal wedding in 2011 or one at all in 2012 [reputedly the BRF wanting to get Williams's and Zara's weddings well out of the way before the Diamond Jubilee.....]

Just my thoughts,

Alex

True, but that doesn't preclude an engagement announcement, with the wedding itself scheduled sometime in 2013. Although I know the RF does not generally favor long engagements...

Let's not speculate on a Beatrice and Dave (or anyone really) engagement....if it happens...it will be announced by Buckingham Palace, and the appropriate threads will be opened.

Thanks!

Today with it being Beatrice's 23rd birthday, this was featured on AOL and I thought I'd share the like with all of you. When you look at the collection of photos that they've put together, Beatrice is not only a very strikingly beautiful young woman but a lot of her outfits do look great on her.

I don't find Beatrice beautiful she can look pretty but her eyes and mouth seem so big and out of proportion. Her dress sense has improved but she always blows it somehow either with a belt or a hat. I can't work out whether it is because her teeth are so big or what it is she always has this gaping look with her mouth open and she tends to look at times like her eyes are popping out of her head. Not a natural beauty at all. Her hair is great and her new figure is good but generally she doesn't look attractive. Eugenie is far prettier to me and when she gets her dress sense right she looks really good far better and more natural a beauty then Beatrice. If Bea wasn't a Princess you wouldn't look twice at her. Of course this is my opinion as they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

I agree - she can be a strikingly beautiful woman - particularly with those large eyes that are just so gorgeous (I wish I had eyes like that).

Her hats still could be toned down a bit but her dress sense has certainly improved and she now usually looks great - except when she has to wear a hat - when not wearing a hat she looks fab.

Maybe, just maybe, she'll watch Kate and realize that hair in itself can be a crowning glory.

Personally, you'd have to hog tie me and maybe slip me a mickey before I'd wear a hat. I've never liked them at all but that's just me. I do have to say though that when I first saw Beatrice with THAT hat on the wedding day, I had to clean my monitor. Looking at the pictures yesterday though, it really didn't look quite as bad and did fit in with the outfit.

It is a genuine pleasure to see how her style has evolved over the years despite the incredible handicap of having a severely fashion-challenged mother in tow.

I love her hat choices! She will never bore me and I can always look to her for a little sartorial whimsy.

I really do think if the hat had been smaller it would have been fine but it was the size that was just over the top. Had it been the size of the one she wore to Zara's wedding it would have looked good with the rest of the outfit.

Royals grow up wearing hats - it is part of the 'royal uniform' and so they wear them to church and the races etc but most of them don't wear them every day anymore.

I really hope she had a great birthday. Recent past events have been tough on her, and I wish for everyone that one day, their birthday, be happy and care-free.

She really is a pretty girl and she looks like a good humored person, too. You never see Beatrice or Eugenie doing that odd looking sulky pout/simper thing a lot of young women do in photographs.

For the life of me I can't remember just where I got the notion but its been with me for a long time that the Queen would always wear a hat to symbolize the royal crown as it would be pretty impractical to wear the crown everywhere she goes. The more I think about it, in my mother's era, every refined woman would wear hats and gloves to church and social occasions.

Thanks for posting this link. I have always thought Pss Beatrice was beautiful. I love the hair and the big eyes. While I've sometimes questioned her choice of fashion, I think she's always been a striking woman. When the time comes, I think she'll make a beautiful bride.

I would agree- A few outfits were but overall beautiful!
I do have one observation something I never noticed till now:
Beatrice seems to love blue fascinators, that look like satellite dishes.

She seems also to like high waisted pieces, when I think she looks lovely in a regularly cut dress. She likes things that go across her middle, apparently. The gold miniskirt is the best looking of these pieces, because it is one color and not quite so high and doesn't give as much of the effect of a big ribbon tied round the waist.

She's a cute girl and I'd love to see her with a different team of stylists and designers.

I love Beatrice! She's clever, funny, and apart from being a royal pretty ordinary. She doesn't seem to mind being photographed and often waves for the cameras. Her royal wedding hat was hideous, but it was really good of her to auction it off for charity.

Absolutely stunning. This is a shot from the Young Victoria film. I was an extra in that (although they cut practically all of us from that scene) and I spoke to her briefly, although it was difficult to say much because so many people were trying to meet her!

I am so used to seeing fashion horror stories about Beatrice that I almost forgot that mostly people believe her to be the worst dressed, vulgar young person by dint of sheer repetition.

Over and over and over again we are told everything that is wrong with her. From her parents to her hair to her teeth to her dresses to her shoes to her hats to he . . . . . . .

But hold on a minute. All the photo's of her, on this page alone show, a very attractive young woman, so why to we think otherwise?

Bad news sells, and Bea Bashing sells really well! But the one thing in all these pictures that has really caught my eye is her smile. She is almost always smiling! And, when you think of all the bad press she and her family have had over the last few years I think that is pretty special. She looks happy, well adjusted and happy. How great is that?
