Princess Beatrice, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and Family, Current Events 2: Sep 2022 -


If you have answers, please help by responding to the unanswered posts.
Prncess Beatrice attends the Brilliant Minds conference June 13-14 in Stockholm as one of the moderators.
Prince Daniel and princess Sofia attend the conference today, Sofia attends also tomorrow.

Princess Beatrice's speaker biography confirms that she is still working, but apparently she has left her vice presidency at Afiniti and since 2022 has worked as a freelance consultant on "emotional intelligence in an age of artificial intelligence", though she retains an advisory role at Afiniti and two other companies. Her daughter was born in September 2021, so I wonder if she made the transition to secure more flexible working hours.

Beatrice York founded By – Eq Limited in 2022, an advisory organization focused on adding more exceptional emotional intelligence in an age of artificial intelligence. She holds advisory roles at Afiniti Technologies, Scale AI and Liontree Asset Management.

Beatrice is a trustee and co-founder of The Big Change Charitable Trust, which identifies and supports charitable projects throughout the UK, reimagining education. Beatrice is a champion of women in leadership and has worked and spoken at a range of events across the world working to promote role models for positive leadership development. She is dyslexic and as such, is a champion for neurodiversity in the workplace as well as a supporter of a range of organizations working with dyslexia. Beatrice is also a Patron and on the board of various charities in the education and young person space including Opus, a next Generation Leadership body.​

I like how she lists herself as Beatrice York

Yes, and it also avoids capitalizing on her princess title for the role.
I hope that the eventual King William will allow Beatrice and her sister to resume their premarital "of York" styles.
 
This is nothing new. Bea and Eugenie both have a dozen patronages and have hosted events for them before.

The only difference between them and working royals, they do this out of their own volition. They get no recognition from the court, no funding and the public over looks it unless there is some trip or bad clothing involved.

Its time for the royal family to embrace what continental royals have, the concept of part time royals. These girls have full time jobs and family, and yet still find time to do patronages. It would be a great asset to the royal family to aknowledge one or both as part time working royals.
There are no part time royals. No continental royal has any part time royal role. Extended family members have jobs.
 
No continental royal has any part time royal role.

Then am I to understand that you believe all royals in non-British European monarchies either have a full-time royal role or no royal role at all? How would you classify the role of, say, Carl Philip of Sweden or Joachim of Denmark?

Joachim is not a part time royal because he undertakes duties, nor is Carl-Philip of Sweden. The first part of your comment is true. Plus the York girls in contrast have never done royal duties.
 
Princess Beatrice attended an Earthshot Prize Water Roundtable:

What do you think a royal duty is? Simply knighting people and banquets?

The majority of a working royal's work is patronages. The only difference between the York patronages and William's? He gets a blip on the calendar and payment to cover his costs, and people to write speeches. And the Yorks do it on their own time and dime.

The European continental royals embrace the only ones who need to devote their lives to 'royal life' are the monarch and heir. Others should be free to have careers and lives. And still represent the royal family with patronages and things like state banquets etc. The all in or all out is indeed a British thing.

There is not a royal family in Europe where a sibling of the heir is completely private and doesn't take part in royal duties. Except Martha Louise due to her activities.

The difference is that the York girls have not been nor will be working royals. Obviously, the York girls do whatever charitable works on their own dime and time, but no one is forcing them to do anything, they chose to do patronages. No one in the U.K will make complaints about the York girls abundance or lack of patronages. So what if someone writes William’s speeches? elected officials and unelected ones have speeches written for them so I don’t get why you added that.

Secondly, the British have the Commonwealth and the realms to visit which is generally a lot to cover compared to the continental royals that’s why lots of representatives were needed at one point. The various non working royals in the continent who have patronages of their own are ones who independently manage their patronages, but their work is acknowledged. The York girls have been awarded for their patronages.

Most of the siblings of royals are relatively private, if they are invited to a state banquet, it’s because of their close relation and proximity to the respective royal. Also, the British public do not want to fund more royals.
 
On the continent, most royal families have minor official (not private!) roles for the less senior royals, so they perform royal duties on a part-time basis (sometimes next to a full-time job; sometimes in addition to some private projects or no other formal jobs/roles). They will typically (N.B. Denmark and Belgium are exceptions - as they get a dotation; but that will end with the next generation) be compensated for the costs directly associated with these official engagements but don't receive a fixed salary/dotation.

Carl Philip is indeed a good example, on the royal court's website it is stated that "HRH Prince Carl Philip performs a number of official assignments each year on behalf of HM The King". So, he is not just a private individual going after his own charitable interests but undertaking activities on behalf of the head of state.

If the individual is not using their title for personal/commercial gain but has an uncontroversial career, this arrangement works fine and benefits the royal house (and hopefully also the royal involved). So, in theory, there is no reason why it couldn't work for the British royals, including Beatrice - however, recent history makes it a bit more complicated.

Joachim is not a part time royal because he undertakes duties, nor is Carl-Philip of Sweden. The first part of your comment is true.

Thank you for clarifying. So, to you, a royal who undertakes any royal duties, even occasionally, is a "full-time royal" and not a "part-time royal". However, please be aware that this is not the terminology used by most other posters. It is not that they are incorrect, they are simply applying different terminology than you do.

The difference is that the York girls have not been nor will be working royals.

Countessmeout was not claiming that they were/are working royals, she was saying that they ought to be.

Excellent post, but SirGyamfi has clarified that under his definition Carl Philip is a full-time royal.

Princess Beatrice and Edoardo on the last day of Glastonbury Festival:

 
Yesterday, July 3, Beatrice and Edoardo attended a dinner in London to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Maria Sharapova's first Wimbledon title:

Edoardo made a lovely post for the couple's 4th wedding anniversary today, July 17:


Added bonus of a new photo from that very special day!
 
There have been some amazing photos from that most private Royal wedding, but that has to be one of the best... second only to the one with Princess Beatrice peeping out of the flower decked church door!🥰

I thought that was a great photograph, so unlike the usual royal wedding photos.

I think it is a unique and totally unrepeatable royal wedding, courtesy of COVID. Just the absolute minimum of family members attended and everything had a 1940's feel to it with a borrowed dress, no hairdressers, not even a sort of formal photo of the bridal party.

For all that, I think it is one of the most romantic Royal Weddings in recent history.
 
Love conquered all, Beatrice became one of us, no breaking of the rules , just like hundreds if not thousands of brides across the country during COVID. Yes a 40's feel sums it up.
