I was thinking that it gets published by SJP or whoever as a counterpoint to the public engagements.

I think she and her sister will find a balance - I wish them well because I think sometimes their parents choices have left them between a rock and a hard place.

Princess Beatrice looked great at the opening and it looks like everyone enjoyed meeting her.

I'm amazed that people and the media are "surprised" when Beatrice and Eugenie do anything correctly! These are two well-educated, well-adjusted young women who have been raised by both parents to respect their lineage and the people with whom they come into contact. Why on earth does anyone think that these two can't do anything?

Give it up, people! These two may be the one thing that Fergie has done well. And, frankly, it's the only thing that matters in the end.

Amen to that.

Not keen on the outfit the top part looks secretary and the bottom part doesn't go at all. She did a good job but she needs to watch some of those over exaggerated facial expressions. It doesn't look good at all. The kids seemed to have a good time it helps not being that much older then them.

I agree, I've only been impressed at Beatrice. Attitude is everything in my book and she seems genuinely eager to step up and help whenever and wherever she can. I am one of those who think she can be an asset to the royal family.

Oh, I see what you mean. You are right. I meant different skit would have been much better. More tailored, not ruffles.

Nice catch with the curtain.

She speaks very well and is totally connected to what she is doing (unlike William and Kate who come across quite stilted when giving speeches).

Yes, she did very well. And she even handled the collapsing curtain with aplomb!

I'm wondering whether Dave might have been giving her some tips about public speaking.

Considering she was the Head Girl at her school I suspect that she has had some experience of public speaking before (note that neither William nor Harry were chosen for that role at Eton and yet Peter, Charles and Edward were all Head Boys at Gordonstoun and they have always spoken well in public while William in particular mumbles a lot - to the extent that I usually need to read the text of his speeches as he is virtually unintelligible while Harry isn't much better - maybe Eton doesn't worry about public speaking as a skill at school).

Yeah? I thought she looked quite nervous and kept thanking them over and over for having her there. Not a great speaker I though but a humbled and nervous one. She looked friendly and eager to please and with NO AIRS AND GRACES. I noticed too that her accent was quite normal unlike Kate's.

The curtain catch was spot on!!

I liked the fact that she spoke from the heart - no notes - and was referring to what she had seen and done at the school herself during the tour - so took notes of what she was shown and commented on that.

I think both Beatrice & Eugenie have learned a lot from their parents and grandparents. Both Andrew & Sarah are very good at public speaking and without notes. They have accompanied their parents on official engagements and The Queen & Duke of Edinburgh too.
