The grass is always greener on the other side! Do these girls not understand their privileged position, and the responsibility that comes with it? Or is it that they just need to learn to be careful of what they say?

They do understand but they're also in their early twenties and privileged beyond belief. The reality is that the York girls, and to an extent the Wales, know they can do as they please without much consequence.

The "immortality" someone that age feels makes for crap decision making. Add their status and you're going to get a ton of mistakes and constant bristling at the attention paid to their actions. Fifty years ago, hell thirty years ago it would've been unimaginable but today, especially with the older generation still churning out the duties at such a blistering pace, these kids don't feel the pressure.

The Yorks will continue their calm existence for as long as they can and then they'll settle into duties as they're passed along to them. If anything the media coverage of today's world means that, despite being the children of the second son, they will have a lot more clout in the future than previous minor royals but for now. Meh.

Hopefully in the future they'll remember that anything they say can and will be printed in the press, and reprinted and reprinted. They're going to have to learn to be more guarded.

My view is that York girls are really not going to have major roles to play in the monarchy going forward, and hence, they really need to be thinking carefully about building lives independent of royal careers. As a result of this, my sense is that their sense of responsibility is probably a wee bit less than that of the Wales boys. That said, these views are based on what one observes and reads in the press, and so may not truely be accurate.

Good grief. Are none of the designers who did Diana's clothes still in business? Someone please take these two girls to Catherine Walker. Please.

Probably not, or at least she doesn't think so.
Beatrice looks alright. They looked much much better at Easter.

They're just tights/leggings. It's not like her knickers are showing or anything.

These are young girls at university and dressing accordingly for a night out with their friends.

At Easter they were dressed appropriately for the occasion the same as they were for a pub crawl.

They are young and people seem to forget some of the awful outfits Zara wore a decade ago when she was their age and compare them to her now.

Left-overs from Madonna's last tour I suspect... A true inspiration!
