In some of the photos I have seen she seems to have been taking a photo rather than texting someone - and again we don't know but maybe The Queen wanted her to take some photos or film it or who knows ... but



York bashing is alive and well so let's think the worst of Beatrice rather than look at her history of deference and love for her grandmother and ask 'is this normal behaviour for her at royal functions?' answer 'no' so why would she did it now?' We will probably never know but she normally treats her grandmother with a great deal of respect so why assume she isn't doing so here??? Simply because it is Beatrice and therefore as a York she has no manners etc ....



If it had been Harry - it would have been seen as a fun way to record the evening but Beatrice - has to be due to bad manners and being disrespectful of her grandmother.

Agreed- she really gets criticized very unfairly. Whenever she does interviews, she seems delightful. I loved the one about the Queen's playhouse that she refurbished.

It looked like she was texting for a few seconds and started to put the phone down but it's hard to say. She's not the first person to text at a concert/service that lasted 2 hours. She just got caught. In other clips she was clapping along and commenting with her sister about the concert.

Just finished watching the YouTube video of the show. Wow what a great show. Loved the riders from Azerbaijan, the bands and the parade of animals at the end. The Queen and Philip looked super excited when the cows came out. The regimental goat got a lot of mentions 🐐

My criticism would have been the same if it had been Harry, William, Catherine, Zara,etc.. It has nothing to do with 'York bashing' and my criticism is based on the poor manners exhibited by a very privileged 27 year old who should know better. There are venues were texting is ok - music festivals, for example, others were texting is rude and this event was one of the latter IMO.
I haven't had time to look at any videos - were Peter and Autumn there?

I saw a photo of Peter teasing James, so I would guess Autumn was there as well.

I was hoping there might be a list of attendees in the Court Circular but there's nothing beyond 12 May at this point.

As I said earlier - How do you know what the circumstances were?

We know Beatrice is very respectful of her grandmother and loves her to pieces.

Why assume that this was something bad if not York bashing???

Guardsmen fainting, especially in hot weather, seems to be an annual tradition! The heat, those busbies, the thick uniforms, combined with stress, do it every time.

It is very well possible Princess Beatrice just made a photo and was seeing it. When I make pictures with the mobile, I always see the result: to delete or not to delete? Nothing wrong with it, just an unlucky moment. It is not the Address from the Throne, it is just a show.

I had also noticed Beatrice spending a fair amount of time staring at her phone. Quite inappropriate, IMO

I loved Louise was riding her grandmother's pony

Louise probably felt so grownup, getting the jubilee medal and getting to take part in the event with her dad. And I bet she was pretty excited she got to ride Grannie's pony for the event, a big deal for her likely.

Grannie was probably just as proud to see her on Emma.

Thanks. I wasn't sure I had spotted Zara, but it would have been odd not to see her riding...

The "Wales boys"? You mean between the Wales and the Cambridge boy?! Interesting word for 30-something year old men...
