Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles are having yet another war of words with Prince Andrew – this time it’s over his bid to make his daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie full-time royals.
According to reports, Prince Andrew raised the matter directly with his brother Prince Charles, as he wants his two daughters to be given the same royal privileges as Charles’ two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry.
Apparently, Prince Andrew wants his daughters to not only live in Kensington Palace, but to be also given taxpayer-funded royal roles. Prince Charles blocked the request, putting his 90-year-old mother in the center of a royal storm between her two sons.
Of course, there’s no way Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie will ever become full-time royals. They simply don’t have what it takes to be the kind of public royals who could take on important charity work along with royal engagements in a full-time capacity.
Even though Kate Middleton has long been criticized for being lazy with a work-allergic problem of her own, she can still make heads turn and command enough attention to her causes thanks to her celebrity status to give her charities the attention that it needs.
Beatrice and Eugenie don’t have the charisma, the character or even the popularity for Queen Elizabeth to even give them any sort of royal responsibilities, let along anything else.
If that weren’t enough, there’s speculation that Queen Elizabeth wants very little to do with Princess es Beatrice and Eugenie simply because she doesn’t want their mother, Sarah Ferguson, in the spotlight again.
Queen Elizabeth knows that both girls take after their parents Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson when it comes to their work-shy attitude who want to do nothing more than become celebrities who work off of royal benefits. They already live a jet-setting life while commanding every luxury the world has to offer, thanks to their royal titles.
The Queen already has enough embarrassment to deal with, thanks to Prince William and Kate Middleton, along with Princes Charles’ wife Camilla Parker-Bowles and doesn’t need more royal leeches damaging the monarchy’s already sketchy reputation.
Tell us, do you think Beatrice and Eugenie should be given full-time royal status? Is Queen Elizabeth unfairly treating Prince Andrew and his daughter?
