Princess Beatrice, the eldest daughter of Prince Andrew, is reportedly set to launch her own business consultancy practice backed by a leading US investment firm.
Princess Beatrice (27) has apparently left her job in New York to ‘pursue her entrepreneurial ambitions.’
She is said to have the backing of leading investment firm Sandbridge Capital whose portfolio includes the likes of Topshop and Karl Lagerfeld in its portfolio.
“She and some other people have set up a consultancy business under the auspices of Sandbridge Capital.”
The friend said she had not been sacked, adding: “She was working, she resigned and is now concentrating her efforts on this start-up.
“She wanted to be more entrepreneurial, so she has set up her own unit within the group, but as a separate unit.”
Princess Beatrice went to university at Goldsmiths College, London where she graduated in 2011 with a 2:1 in History and History of Ideas before going on to work in business.
