To be fair, these constantly-photographed princes are bound to have some off photos now and again. It's normal. Neither of them are ugly or dumb.

"Handsomer"?

When you put together all of the elements of their individual make up -- the looks, manners, humor, height, sensitivity, ... they look good.

Perhaps "ugly" is not a fair or accurate description of William and Harry, but to be honest there were and are better looking Royal men in Christendom.

But in terms of prestige and world fame, it's advantage Windsor all the way.

It seems that different standards are applied to blood princesses and blood princes. Commenters who consider Prince William or Prince Harry to be "ugly dim princes" never question why the former Kate Middleton or the former Meghan Markle chose them over handsomer men; the mere fact that they are princes is regarded as being more than enough reason. If the genders of Beatrice and Edo had been reversed, I imagine Eda Mapelli Mozzi would have been seen as fortunate to marry Prince Bertie of York, no matter how his looks compared to Eda's previous boyfriend.

I would assume that the commenters who would write that "When you put together all of the elements of their individual make up -- the looks, manners, humor, height, sensitivity, ... they look good" are not the same commenters who would write that they are "ugly dim princes". Even if they were in fact the same group of commenters, that would not account for why they apply a different standard to Princess Beatrice.

As they should. I don't understand how Bea, Edo, Pippa etc put up with being constantly followed around by the paparazzi and I don't understand why the pics that are the result of it are being posted here on the forums by us who should know better.

They are public figures to an extent.. not as working royals but as minor royals and connections. Pippa seemed to be quite happy with a certain amount of media attention a few years ago, though I think since her marriage she's perhaps given up hope of having some kind of career and is happy to be a housewife and mother.

I agree with them being public figures, but I still don't understand their paparazzi pictures being posted by people who lament the media treatment of other royals in other threads. I'm not pointing fingers at anyone since I'm sure that I've done it myself too.

I'm kind of ambivalent on the photos existing. I don't think we get that many pics of Bea and Edo, maybe once a week or less and it probably amounts to less than 5% of their day. There's a bit more interest now she's announced she's married/pregnant but before their marriage we could go for many months without photos or even years if you don't count official events.

Sarah has talked about bringing her girls up to accept some public interest in them and to smile at the photographers which I think is a more helpful outlook than constantly battling them, simply for the sake of their peace of mind. I assume if they stepped over the line then a complaint would be issued.

The nastiest coverage they're received hasn't really been about paparazzi photographs at all but articles their appearances at official events, their perceived "desperate hanger on" status and their parents' scandals and personalities.

Most photos of Eugenie come directly from her own Instagram.

I think the treatment of Kate and Pippa in the early 2000s was awful but it seems to have calmed down a whole lot for all of them since then.

I dont think that the media are so terrible to Bea and Eugenie these days. They did get stick from the tabloids for a time but I think that was partly because they were perceived as being "flitting about socialites" and also because they shared in some of the unpopularity of And and Sarah. But now IMO coverage is reasonably favorable and is just the odd photo of them..and they get a bit of favorable notice for their charity work.. which is good.
Anyone n the RF has to expect a bit of press notice.. and they will get boht unfair criticism and extravagant praise.. and both extremes have to be tolerated.

They mirror one anothers body language...both of them holding the left hand across their stomachs at the same time.

Fascinating!

It is a wonder that The Daily Mail does not give an account of each item of food that Princess Beatrice and Edoardo eat. Would the public absolutely be interested in such news?
