Telegraph newspaper writer Judith Woods has today, slammed Princess Beatrice and Eugenie’s use as business representatives for the United Kingdom, saying: “Flagging up Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie as ambassadors for British brands makes a laughing stock of us all”.
For two days this week HRH Princess Beatrice of York and HRH Princess Eugenie of York played the role of business envoys for the UK in Germany, representing and promoting British interests. We, as I’m sure many other people, feel that Princess Beatrice and Eugenie have done a wonderful job over the last few days.
Telegraph writer, Judith Woods seems to think less so. Calling the 5th and 6th in-line to the throne: “a laughing stock” and declaring, “the pair of C-list royals are on a Chuckle Sisters trade delegation”.
Not only is this a direct insult to the Royal Family but also to Princess Beatrice and Eugenie who have worked so hard to make the trip a success.
The article explains how using Beatrice and Eugenie as trade envoys is akin to the Spice Girls’ Olympics appearance this year and declaring that “nobody recognises them”, also adding the snub “they’re not even wearing their everyday diadems”. and condemning their visit, ‘they’re not suited to be business envoys’.
Meanwhile, back with not-so-bitter people, the visit has been heralded as a huge success and is believed to have strengthened bonds between the UK and Germany. Princess Beatrice’s first overseas speech was also regarded as a success, both by Britons and Germans.
