The royal has previously been open about her strong connection with the Queen. In October 2017, Princess Beatrice revealed that the two most important women in her life are her mother, Sarah, Duchess of York and her grandmother.

"They are both formidable women. I think having female role models is incredibly important and I am very lucky that I happen to be related to these two incredible women."

"I find my grandmother inspiring every day because her overwhelming sense of duty is linked with an overwhelming curiosity. Every day she's curious to learn something new, to do something new, and I think that at 91 years old, she goes out into the community with a genuine curiosity as to how she can be a force for good in the world."
