Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice of York has become patron of the York Theatre Royal, Royal Central has discovered today.

Princess Beatrice, who turns 25 tomorrow, paid a visit to the costume workshops in 2012 during preparations for The York Mystery Plays. According to the theatre’s website, “The Princess’s visit culminated with Her Royal Highness turning her hand to Pattern Cutting, as she cut the first piece of fabric for an Angel costume under the supervision of Community Wardrobe Supervisor Janet Hull.”

York Theatre Royal Chief Executive Liz Wilson said “We are delighted and looking forward to welcoming her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice to the Theatre Royal on her next visit to York to personally thank her for her support”.

Currently, Princess Beatrice works full time for an ‘unnamed venture capital firm’ (finance) and occasionally performs royal engagements. She is patron of only a few organisations including being royal patron of The Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre and patron of the York Musical Society.

The Royal Household have expressed there is not intention for Princess Beatrice or her sister Princess Eugenie to become full time royals. When Prince Charles comes to the throne, it is expected he will seek to reduce the number of active members of the Royal Family, in favour of a ‘slimmed down’ monarchy.
