Princess Beatrice is the new (royal?) patron for the British Skin Foundation

Days ago, we heard that Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank are considering a move to California. They’ve had one foot out the door for a few years now, and they’re already splitting their time between the UK and Portugal. As much as I genuinely believe that Eugenie is prepared to Eugexit the UK, I also believe that her sister has been auditioning for “working royal” status for more than a year. Beatrice and her husband Edoardo seem especially keen to move in royal circles, undertake royal work and have a public role. I kind of wonder if King Charles is softening a bit on the issue. Speaking of, here are some photos of Beatrice at the Blizard Institute at Queen Mary University of London today. She was just announced as the new patron for the British Skin Foundation.

Princess Beatrice stepped out on Tuesday for the first time in her newly appointed role as patron of the British Skin Foundation.

Beatrice, 34, visited London’s prestigious Blizard Institute at Queen Mary University of London to see first-hand how scientists are tackling the UK rising skin cancer numbers.

Speaking about her new patronage, the Princess said: “I am so pleased to be able to support the work of the British Skin Foundation. I have admired their work and research for many years, and they have helped so many people through the foundations pioneering efforts. I am grateful to be working with them, to learn as much as I can about their ground-breaking endeavours.”

Is this the most prestigious of royal patronages? Nope, but that’s exactly why Beatrice could take it. Queen Camilla didn’t want it, and the Princess of Wales does f–k all. This is probably the kind of patronage which would have gone to Princess Anne or the Countess of Wessex. It’s interesting that it went to Bea. Maybe King Charles understands that his slimmed-down monarchy is pretty old, lazy and boring.
