Princess Beatrice is the elder daughter of Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and Sarah, Duchess of York. She is ninth in the line of succession to the British throne, followed by her sister, Princess Eugenie. Born on August 8, 1988, the Her Royal Highness will turn 32 today. Princess Beatrice is quite close to her sister Princess Eugenie and has often been captured together attending different events, marriages and meetings. On her birthday, we bring to you some interesting facts about the UK royal family member.

  • Princess Beatrice is just a year older to Princess Eugenie and has retained a close relationship throughout the years.
  • Beatrice volunteers and attends royal engagements alongside other members of the royal family.
  • Beatrice is understood to be the vice president of partnerships and strategy at Afiniti, a New York City-based artificial intelligence company.
  • Beatrice and her sister Eugenie are known as "blood princesses," meaning that they are born royal instead of marrying into the family.
  • Other than the Royal family, Princess Beatrice has a wide circle of friends. She has been spotted with David Geffen, Karlie Kloss, Ivanka Trump, and Wendi Deng among others.

Beatrice is also a charitable patron of several organisations including children's welfare and education. As she is dyslexic, many of the organisations she supports are centred around learning difficulties. We wish Princess Beatrice a very Happy Birthday and hope all her dreams come true.
