Princess Beatrice is one of our most super-stylish royals, and loves wearing trend-led pieces as well as classic wardrobe staples - but have you noticed one particularly personal detail about her style?

The royal - who is known to her close friends and family as 'Bea', or 'B' - loves to wear items with bumblebees adorned on them. Sweet!

On Christmas Day in 2019, Princess Beatrice looked elegant as she was pictured walking to St Mary's Magdalene church with the royal family, wearing a camel coat by The Fold Finchley, which she paired with Saint Laurent Babies ankle boots and a belt from Zara.

Sweetly, it was revealed in 2017 that Beatrice uses bumblebee motif stationary to write her personal letters. A handwritten note which was featured in Chaos magazine showed that her monogrammed paper features a bee beneath a crown. How cute is that?

During an interview with Vogue in 2018, Princess Beatrice and Eugenie revealed that just like all sisters they argue over clothes - and their worst argument was over a pair of shoes!
