Princess Beatrice, who celebrated her 27th birthday on Saturday, is currently enjoying a break in Spain. The young royal was seen relaxing on not one, but two luxury liners off the coast of Ibiza during her latest lavish holiday abroad.
Beatrice was seen relaxing on the 1.5 billion pound ($2.3 billion) super-yacht owned by Russian businessman Roman Abramovich before being whisked off to another swanky boat, where it is believed she was invited for drinks with American TV host Oprah Winfrey. Also spotted on the extravagant trip was Dave Clark, whom the royal has been dating for more than a decade, Express UK reported. The pair was pictured in good spirits as they relaxed with friends, with the princess wearing a summery dress.
The second yacht visited by the princess is owned by billionaire American music magnate David Geffen. Beatrice opted to keep it casual for her pre-birthday bash, and was spotted in a loose-fitted patterned dress which covered her swimwear. She later changed into a black dress before being treated to a spin on a speedboat. The party then began when the royal reportedly met Winfrey, who was on board with her friend Gayle King.
Known for her jet-set lifestyle, Beatrice was making her 17th time abroad in a little over eight months, and her thirteenth this year alone. The princess quit her 20,000 pound ($30,985)-a-year role at Sony Pictures at the end of last year.
In the past few months, the princess has visited the U.S. several times - including to New York for her sister Eugenie’s birthday -- as well as holidays to her parent’s chalet in the ski resort of Verbier, Switzerland. The young royal has also enjoyed breaks in Greece, Italy and Caribbean. Besides, she has also visited Florida, Bahrain, China and the United Arab Emirates.
In February Beatrice hit back at her critics who called her “work-shy” by insisting at the time that she was up for two jobs. She princess is described as “in full-time business” on the Duke of York’s website, despite not currently being employed.
Meanwhile, Buckingham Palace confirmed in February that Beatrice had begun studying finance in the U.S. When contacted by Express UK, a spokesman for Buckingham Palace said they do not comment on the private time of royals. Prince Andrew’s eldest daughter moved to New York around three weeks ago to start work with a private equity firm, according to well-placed sources.
