But David Beckham was in the presence of a true regal figure when he attended a formal reception at Buckingham Palace on Monday, hosted by none other than Her Royal Highness.
The handsome sportsman was a special guest at HRH The Queen's Young Leaders Event, which celebrates the UK's emerging business talent.

Even though Beatrice turned up to this first reception it's a pity that neither William or Harry were there to support their grandmother. Both have been appointed ambassadors to the Commonwealth-based programme and have made announcements and speeches about it. Neither could be bothered to turn up for an hour or so, however. It's pretty poor, IMO.

Wow...Pretty judgmental. William has a job in Norfolk and Harry hasn't checked in yet and explained himself. If HM had wanted one of them there, it would have been scheduled accordingly and they would have been there. And my opinion is that HM allowed Beatrice to be there to give her some experience and exposure not that HM needed her there.

They were both appointed ambassadors to it though, and made speeches promoting it. They are both associated with this programme. Bea isn't. If Harry is out of the country, then William should have turned up.

It's not being judgemental. As an Australian the Commonwealth is important to me, and I know it certainly is to the Queen. How do we know Bea wasn't being supportive to her grandmother?

And if Will did go I'm sure there would be some who wouldn't like him out shining Beatrice

I don't think so. I don't think it's that type of event. It is very important IMO for the younger royals to show an interest in Commonwealth programmes like this one.

In regards to the Young Leaders programme, we need to have an understanding of how the Firm works. The Lord Chamberlain would have had meetings with dept heads of William, Harry etc etc, probably up to six months prior. They discuss who is going to be available and possibly HM asked for Beatrice to be present, especially as Prince Andrew has been pushing for more duties for his daughters. Just because we don't see William, Kate, Harry or the others out and about, doesn't mean they aren't working for The Firm behind the scenes.

The Queen, accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, visited the University of Strathclyde. She also opened The Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, the Royal Hospital for Children and The Queen Elizabeth Teaching and Learning Centre - July 3, 2015.

She looked great as usual.
