Well, Zara isn't royal. I think it remains to be seen what sort of duties the Wessex children do (or don't do).

Once Charles becomes King, Andrew and Edward and their children will be perceived...

I think the difference is that it's automatic for the next four in the line of succession to be Counsellors of State but the consort (and in the present reign, the Queen Mother) has to be added...

Someone could start a "gushers thread," but it wouldn't last long. We aren't a fan site any more than a site to dish gossip and try to compete with each other for the nastiest names to call people.

Well, with the way the Civil List is at the moment, they'll never be on it. None of the Queen's children draw Civili List income, but they're still doing royal duties, and in Princess Anne's case...

Well, as you said, it's harder (and probably less convenient) for the photographers to get sellable photos of Beatrice at university, so they try and get photos of her at play. It's like with Kate...

So you don't agree with the people who say the royal family should be restricted to Charles's descendants and Beatrice should expect to have a career outside the royal family?

I hope she's been...

How should Princess Beatrice spend the next few years?

The British forum mods have seen quite a lot of criticism and other opinions about what Princess Beatrice is doing with herself, what she plans to do in the future, and what our members think she...
