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.”
“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.
