Princess Bea lands new job - as a shop assistant at Selfridges
Princess Beatrice, who, as fifth in line to the throne, must be used to being waited on herself, has landed a new job - as a shop assistant at Selfridges.
Prince Andrew and Fergie's daughter has a new - unpaid - post as a personal shopper for VIP customers, which she is undertaking as a work experience in her gap year.
Her job - which she'll carry out from 9-5 for the rest of the month - involves fetching and carrying for rich customers.
So far, the items that the working Bea has sold include an £825 Matthew Williamson summer frock, a £310 Burberry jacket and a pair of £175 James Jeans trousers.
Bea herself dressed in a smart black dress, wide waist belt and flat shoes for her down-to-earth duties.
A Selfridges source told The Sun: 'Beatrice is a natural. Our personal shoppers are popular with wealthy Arabs, celebrities and footballers' wives.'
In fact, Beatrice's cousin, Prince William, used the service when he bought girlfriend Kate Middleton earrings just before Christmas.
