How distant are the days when Princess Beatrice of York, with her sister Eugenie, were the rebellious teenagers of the British royal family! Now 34 years old, the young woman has become one of the pillars of this clan, discreet but always present, serious and fulfilling mother of her little Siena, born in September 2021. But in the coming weeks her role should still evolve and grow with her uncle, the new king Charles III.
In fact, the young woman is about to be named special adviser to the monarch, a role that consists in replacing the sovereign when he cannot take on a journey or an assignment. As proof that the young woman has her head on her shoulders and that her uncle trusts her, even if he will share this new function with the four members of his family who precede her in the order of succession and who are over 21 years old, namely Queen consort Camilla, Prince William of Wales, Prince Harry and her father, Prince Andrew.
However, when we know that Prince Harry lives in the United States and no longer represents the royal family, and that his father, involved in the Epstein affair, has retired from public life, we tell ourselves that we should see her much more often … Very attached to her little sister Eugenie, Sarah Ferguson’s daughter should finally come out of her secrecy, but she is always present during great family events.
And in particular the Jubilee: like all her cousins (except Guglielmo), she had not appeared during Trooping the Color, but she had made a notable appearance at mass in a blue dress, on the arm of her husband Edoardo Mapello Mozzi. She also appeared to her cousins this Saturday when the royal family visited the small church near Balmoral. Dressed in black, she arrived with her sister and very moved by her, she even curled up in her father’s arms.
Then we saw her comforting her cousin Louise and then speaking to the crowd: much appreciated by the public, she did not hesitate, like her sister, to find curious people who gave her flowers and sent her all their condolences. She is very moved, she should now be present on Monday 19 September, at the official funeral of her grandmother, and perhaps this Monday in Edinburgh: a religious ceremony will be celebrated in the presence of several members of the royal family including King Charles III.
