To celebrate Princess Beatriceâs milestone birthday â she turns 30 today!Â â we looked at just some of the fun, quirky things we know about Queen Elizabethâs granddaughter, known to her friends simply as âBea.â
Posting a FaceTime screenshot of her palâs reaction (her jaw dropped to the floor!),Â the model inadvertently revealed Beatriceâs private Instagram accountÂ by tagging the royal.
Their friendship goes back years. They were spotted hanging out at the U.S Open in 2016, and the two recently took a trip to Jordan together with a group of friends that also included singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding.
Animal-themed stationery just got a whole lot cooler.
In a tongue-in-cheek reference to her regal stature (she is eighth in line to the throne) and her name, Beatriceâs stationery features a motif of a bee and a crown. Her personalized writing paper was revealed when she wrote a handwritten note to support charity campaign âBe Cool, Be Niceâ forÂ Chaos magazine.

Beatrice might be a member of the royal family, but sheâs happy to tweet and Instagram â andÂ her rĂ©sumĂ©Â is even on LinkedIn. But donât expect to get a daily fix of royal gossip or filtered pictures of her favorite avocado toast recipe. Most of the posts are to promote her charity work rather than anything personal and her Instagram feed is private â so unless you are one of her 655 followers, her favorite brunch treats will remain a mystery.
Managing to combine her love of charity work, fashion and monogramming, Beatriceâs favorite bag of the summer has been her Pop & Suki box bag.
The bag, which she has in pink and black has the words âBe Cool, Be Niceâ written on the front, in reference to an anti-bullying campaign she helped to champion last year. And the vintage-inspired bag is almost affordable at $275.
Well, if it isnât, then it should be.
