Zara Phillips

Solving the Princess Beatrice conundrum

It’s been a frustrating year for Princess Beatrice. Ever since September, when she graduated from Goldsmiths’ College at the University of London with an upper second class history degree, she’s been hunting for a permanent job. It hasn’t been easy—she’s got a bit of a rep as someone very impressed by her own title. Still, most other royals of her generation have knuckled down, gotten jobs and built careers. Look at cousin Zara Phillips, who is going to the Olympics as a former world three-day eventing champion. And that’s a title that’s earned, rather than handed out to anyone with a nice pedigree.
