I tend to agree.
I think what would make Beatrice happiest is a life somewhat like Sophie's, where she could combine family life (I do think she would like to be married and settled) with her...

Where do they live now?
I know Eugenie and Beatrice share an apartment in St. James' Palace, but it was reported that Beatrice will move out soon.

Last I heard, Jack lived with his parents-...

That was somewhat dodgy though, wasn't it?
The place was rather derelict so why did someone pay that much?

I've wondered that too, mostly because it has been said that Fergie, unlike Diana, didn't receive much of a settlement after the divorce.

I've always thought Andrew was basically subsidized by the...

Charles and William may end up supporting the girls anyway.
I don't know if they can be described as trust-fund heiresses; they did have trust funds at one point, but Fergie had access to them (who...

Eugenie may be, but I think Beatrice has been drifting for quite some time. She is said to be building a business, but I doubt that will amount to much.
I think she is one royal who would truly...

I've noticed that many commentators don't seem to know which is which: I keep seeing references to the red-haired one or the dark-haired one.

Surely they are not that hard to distinguish?

I can't really fault Andrew for worrying about his daughters' futures, especially Beatrice, since her employment efforts haven't worked out.

But, as has been mentioned, many working royals are elderly, and may stop working quite soon.

And the point is that the public expects Beatrice (all the RF really) to do something besides go to...

It's been said that the Queen mostly defers to Charles these days, and his wishes are paramount.

That may be so, but I have to say, it sounds like something Charles would do.

I could easily see him deciding that his own family was sufficient and there was no need for any others.

Good point; It's possible she gets bored. A full-time job, with limited vacation time, is bound to have its dull moments, and perhaps Beatrice isn't prepared to accept that.

If you mean me, I don't believe Charles is mean and nasty at all, I have a lot of respect for him.
However, I feel he is very aware of his PR (it would be foolish of him not to be in his position)....

Still, it does seem lately as if the York girls are deliberately raising their profiles.

What I mean by this is, at the time of the Royal Wedding, many people barely knew who they were.

My point is that it seems a bit like a double-standard; people are troubled by Kate's work history but nobody cares about Beatrice's?
