Princess Beatrice & Princess Eugenie deliver rare joint speech about life lessons

Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie delivered a rare joint speech in London on Wednesday in which they shared their advice about the lessons they have learnt in life.

Taking to the stage at the Wembly Arena, the sisters urged people to ‘never give up, no matter the obstacles’ and ‘reach out to others.’

Beatrice and Eugenie were speaking at WE Day – an annual event that celebrates the achievements of young people working in their communities around the world.

Together, Beatrice and Eugenie said: “We stand here to support not just each other, but all women. Women are working together to impact great change.’

“Today we are here to offer three lessons that have helped us… that have taught us to be strong and value those around us.

“1. Never give up – no matter the obstacles.

“2. Find that tiny flame inside of you that makes you shine brighter than you feel, that gives you the belief that you can change the world.

“3. You don’t have to face anything alone – you should reach out to others.”

Princess Beatrice, who is the eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, has spoken at WE Day events every year since 2014.

According to their website, WE is a “movement that brings people together and gives them the tools to change the world.”

The charity aims to empower communities to lift themselves out of poverty through their holistic, sustainable international development model.
