I have always thought that PB was a very pretty girl, she has a great attitude and that is what counts. She seems like she is sure of herself and has high self confidence and that the most important thing. She does have issues with her clothing choices what of most I don't care for and wonder about, but her body type and face are nothing to be complained about. She is just an attractive young lady trying to find her way in life through this family she was born into and all the media following her through out her life.

Isle Of Wight Transportation

Quote:
Princess Beatrice dodges ferry queues by hitching a lift with the navy: Royal hops aboard HMS Ranger rather than face the crowds
Most people on a day trip to enjoy the picturesque beauty of the Isle of Wight would hop on a ferry.

But when Princess Beatrice paid a visit she avoided the queues and bustle of Portsmouth sea terminal – not to mention a £17.20 return fare – by hitching a ride with the Royal Navy.

The 25-year-old’s decision to hop aboard HMS Ranger, an Archer-class patrol boat, when she travelled to the island last week raised eyebrows, with one resident saying: ‘Why couldn’t she come on the ferry like everyone else?’

It is not known whether Prince Andrew, a former Navy Commander, pulled any strings to help his daughter hitch a lift, but insiders were quick to insist that the boat-ride did not place an additional burden on the taxpayer.
Princess Beatrice dodges ferry queues by hitching a lift with the navy | Mail Online
The HMS Ranger/Royal Navy always trains at Isle Of Wight Cowes, I don’t see How Princess Beatrice could have added any tax burden of any sort to British Civilians, doesn’t make sense. Plus ,the Isle of Wight visit was arranged by a Lord Lieutenant from start to finish that includes arranging transportation for royals. it was a Lord Lieutenant’s choice to have Princess Beatrice transported by the royal navy not her, besides I think a Lord Lieutenant would know what he was doing I don’t think he would add any unnecessary tax burden to civilians . This is the dailymail creating unnecessary drama and not doing their research

Another patronage for Beatrice taking her total to 7 I think:

York Musical Society
York Theatre Royal
The Sick Kids Friends Foundation
Forget Me Not Children's Hospice
Broomwood African Education Foundation
Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre
Berkshire Community Foundation

She is also:

Ambassador to Teenage Cancer Trust
Global Ambassador for Children in Crisis

And was involved with the Branson kids and other friends in setting up:

The Big Change Charitable Trust

She is certainly building her portfolio of patronages which is a good sign for her as she clearly wants to get involved in these things.

Princess Beatrice arrives at Wimbledon after attending every star-studded event this week | Mail Online

Whilst she may be taking on a few patronages, Beatrice certainly seems to have time to visit all the celebrity parties and events, in the latest designer gear. How much must hse spend on apparel in a year? £100k?

Just speculating here ( a no-no I know!) but could the York girls possibly borrow some of their party wear from designers? That could explain why we seldom see any repeats.

I don't think members of the BRF are allowed to do that; otherwise they'd be accused of shilling for the fashion designer.

Sounds like Beatrice isn't working at Sony anymore. Going out every night is a bit much for someone if she had a fulltime job. If she borrowed clothes she would get into trouble for getting freebies she does have money, David has money and her father pays for her apartment and probably other expenses.

SEBASTIAN SHAKESPEARE: How busy Bea bagged a very fancy party dress | Mail Online
Well, according to this article the designer of the dress attended the Serpentine party with Beatrice as her 'walker' (whatever that means) which makes me wonder if in exchange for publicity Beatrice may wear and return as many Hollywood types do (indeed the Hollywood types get paid to wear designer's dresses.)
The article does suggest that Beatrice is still working as the designer said Beatrice had to rush over during her lunch hour. I hope so, and I hope she's found a niche that she enjoys.

Don't know whats up with all all the old fogies around here.

When coming back from a visit to the country my sister and I found ourselves driving through the city and noticing all the lightly clad young people heading in. These were all pretty normal young people, Varsity students, first jobbers, yuppies and it was a Sunday night. We both laughed at us showing our age because we didn't feel the cold at their age and we didn't head out to clubs, etc. until 9:30 - 10:00pm either. More than that, going to work, etc. the following day wasn't a biggie.

There is an old saying that "youth is wasted on the young" and in some cases I would agree but, when it comes to a social life you had better believe that they utilise it. Their sheer stamina leaves one gasping. They are having a ball and guess what? They aren't even young royals who the DM seems to think are incapable of keeping a job and socialising. Belive it or not that seems to be like thinking one cannot walk and talk at the same time.

Now that Bea has been acknowledged to be borrowing dresses (if that is true, the article in not entirely clear), she is clearly going down the celeb list. Slippery slope that!

If that's the case, they've been doing for some time now. Must be okay'd by their father, mother and The Queen.

I doubt it was okay'd by HM. As far as her parents are concerned, there judgement has not always been the best, when it comes to matters of finance.

I doubt the Queen would know. There is reason why the Royals aren't supposed to do this sort of thing and it isn't like Beatrice doesn't have money to buy her own dresses. All these events haven't been official duties they have been private parties etc that is a big difference another reason I doubt the Queen would give the ok. Also he wouldn't say if he gave her the dress or it had to be returned after it's been specially fitted to her it's pretty useless to anyone else. Love how since people are questioning if she still is working suddenly she is so busy she had to fit in the fitting in her lunch hour yet she has had quite a bit of time off lately she even managed a few days at Ascot and she was Wimbledon so I must admit I am expecting to see her on some luxury yacht over the Summer.

The Queen knows about her granddaughters wardrobe. She see them on a regular bases and know what they are up to all of the time.

I like the fact that Princess Beatrice is a patroness of York Theatre Royal.
The York Theatre Royal homepage mentioned the theatre has one of the largest youth theatre groups in the United Kingdom.
It is fantastic when young people are able to participate in theatre!!

ANOTHER fashion hit for Princess Beatrice at wedding of Prince Amedeo of Belgium | Mail Online
Does anyone recognize the young man that Beatrice is walking with? He appears to be a fellow guest and I would assume they are acquaintances.
