Beatrice and Eugenie both work full-time jobs, but have been called out for taking one too many holidays. Beatrice works for Afiniti, a U.S.-based technology company, while Eugenie is a director at London art gallery Hauser & Wirth.

“It’s hard to navigate situations like these because there is no precedent, there is no protocol,” Beatrice told the mag. “We are the first: we are young women trying to build careers and have personal lives, and we’re also princesses, and doing all of this in the public eye.”

The sisters have also faced their fair share of harsh criticism and even mockery for their fashion choices, specifically the fascinators they chose to wear to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding in 2011. Throughout the criticism, the sisters say they’ve been “each other’s rocks.”

“There was a horrible article that had been written about Beatrice and she got really upset. We were just about to step out at a Buckingham Palace garden party and she had a bit of a wobble and cried. I was looking after her. And then about an hour later, I had a wobble and started crying and Bea was there for me,” Eugenie admitted.

Despite the pressure they feel, Eugenie says she’s isn’t worried about at least one thing: her upcoming October 12 wedding to fiancé Jack Brooksbanks, at which Beatrice will be her maid of honor. “I’m not stressed at all. It’s very nerve-wracking because you want it to be perfect but then you realize that you’re going to be with the person you love forever and nothing else really matters,” she said.
