Princess Beatrice DID NOT step in for the Princess of Wales

The British tabloids are at it again.   Daily Mail headline screamed, "Princess Beatrice champions one of Kate Middleton's favourite causes: Royal attends student mental health roundtable in London."    

The Mail and other newspapers pushed a story that Beatrice was filling in for Catherine.  She was supporting one of her charities.

Princess Beatrice is not championing one of the Princess of Wales's favorite causes.  This is one of Beatrice's patronages.  She is one of the co-founders of Big Change.  The organization was founded in 2012 by the princess with Holly Branson, Isabella Branson, Phil Nevin, Sam Branson, and Sam Richardson.  

This organization is not affiliated with the Princess of Wales.  

Princess Beatrice is also a trustee of the organization.   She does not use her title and is styled as Beatrice York.

Princess Beatrice does not carry out official engagements.  This means the Big Change event will not be included in the Court Circular.  Beatrice and her younger sister, Princess Eugenie are not included in the official charities and patronages database.  

In November 2022, I wrote an article that advocated for Beatrice and Eugenie to become part-time working royals.  This is unlikely to happen, however.

What is worse is the number of gullible people who fall for tabloid nonsense!
