So this is what Beatrice and Eugenie do to earn money, and it’s nothing royal

Who knew?

We wouldn’t blame you for assuming that Princess Beatrice and Eugenie don’t work.

At the end of the day, they are royalty – and their gran is Queen Elizabeth.

However, you’d be incorrect.

The two lovely princesses have actual, real life jobs!

Princess Eugenie has a full time job in a London art gallery where she is an Associate Art Director.

Eugenie has previously spoken about her career, saying:

“I knew I definitely wouldn’t be a painter, but I knew this was the industry for me. I love being able to share my passion for art with people.”

As for Princess Beatrice, she works for a US-based technology company called Afiniti, according to People.

The reason why the two Princesses have jobs is quite interesting.

Apparently the sisters are not working royals, like their cousins Prince Harry and Prince William.

This basically means that they’re not supported by the Sovereign Grant, which is the tax-funded cash money given annually to fund the Queen (and family) in their official duties.

Unsurprisingly, Prince Andrew was pretty pissed that his kids weren’t entitled to the fund.

Could you blame him?
