Royal fans were convinced Princess Beatrice was going to make an appearance at the 2024 Met Gala after she stepped out at the Empire State Building in New York for her first live TV interview on Monday. 

Speaking as a trustee for Outward Bound, the royal spoke to This Morning about the thrill-seekers and celebrities who were preparing to abseil down the iconic New York landmark to raise money for the charity.

Post-interview, it would have been more than convenient for the stylish Princess to flit across the block to the Metropolitan Museum to put in an appearance at fashion's biggest night of the year; an occasion she first attended in 2018.

 However, the royal was nowhere to be seen on the steps of the Met, leaving the sartorial spotlight for the likes of Zendaya, Lana Del Ray, and the Kardashians.

Royal style watchers may have missed out on a red carpet moment from Princess Beatrice, but unseen footage of the royal, captured by Instagram account @experiences.xo at the Formula 1 pre-race in Miami on 4 May, showed that she clearly brought her fashion A-game to the States.

Dressed in a glamorous co-ord, Princess Beatrice wore a floral print cotton blouse and matching skirt from Parisian brand, Thierry Colson. 

Complete with elegant puffed sleeves, a button-down bodice and a flattering, midi-length skirt, Beatrice's feminine ensemble was reminiscent of the late Princess Diana's 80s skirt suits.

Adding a modern twist to the look, Princess Beatrice slipped into black 'Cotton Pierre Sneakers' from royally-loved brand Veja. The auburn-haired royal wore her fiery locks down and straight, as she appeared to go makeup-free for the VIP event.

The Princess clearly has a penchant for pastel colours, proven by her array of floral garments and array of colourful dresses that formed a bouquet of beautiful looks during last summer's season of events.
