The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge aren’t the only members of the Royal Family passionate about ending bullying. Though Princess Beatrice isn’t an official working royal, she has contributed a note to a book seeking to end this horrible practice.
The Princess wrote her note on ‘Queen Bee’ embossed stationery – a lighthearted pun on her royal status. The stationery has a bee and crown embossed on it.
In her handwritten note, Beatrice says, in part: ‘kindness takes you all the way.’
In an interview with Hello! Magazine, the princess opened up about her mother’s strength and how she overcame the adversity of being one of the most misunderstood women in the world, according to Beatrice.
In the interview, Beatrice spoke of her mother’s: ‘anything is possible, no matter where you think you think the world is going to put you next.’ attitude.
She added: ‘We’ve been through some incredibly stressful times together as a family and every single minute she created joy.’
The book, titled Be Cool Be Nice has been published in conjunction with a global anti-cyberbullying campaign. With the help of make-up artist,
Pat McGrath, the princess posed on the cover of the book with a glittery red pout. The book has been released with different covers featuring other celebrities such as Cara Delevingne, Adwoa Aboah, Kendall Jenner and Karl Lagerfeld.
Former stylists Charlotte Stockdale and Katie Lyall are the brains behind the publishing venture. They have worked previously for the likes of Dolce and Gabbana, DKNY, Viktor and Rolf. The women worked for ten years as the creative directors of the Victoria Secret fashion show.
Beatrice’s note continues by saying: ‘Take the time to listen to yourselves. Be passionate about things that matter. Support each other. But most of all be kind to each other.’ Beatrice also advises people to be kind in everything they do and say.
‘The Be Cool Be Nice book reminds us all that each and every one of us must play our part to create a more just society,’ said Baroness Amos, United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs.
‘The message is simple, the impact profound.’
