Princess Beatrice attended a New York charity event with the Swedish royals and appeared happy. However, her friends are concerned about her recent appearance.

Pictures posted online show her with Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia at a function to raise awareness of dyslexia. Her friends are saddened but not surprised after the tough start to the year.

According to an insider, ‘Bea looks a shadow of her former self.’   Since her dad, Prince Andrew, went from hero to zero, they have been worried about her. The most hellish family dramas have entirely overshadowed the joy of welcoming her daughter, Sienna.

When times get tough, Bea typically turns to her sister, Princess Eugenie. However, their usually rock-solid relationship is at an all-time low, with the siblings divided over their loyalties to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

According to an insider, Beatrice attempted to warn Eugenie about her alliance with Prince Harry and Meghan. The two sisters have reportedly had tense phone conversations.

Beatrice is concerned that she and Eugenie were not approved to appear on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during their uncle King Charles’ May 6 coronation because they came as a package deal. According to an insider, the reason why she doesn’t want to lose standing with the King or alienate William and Catherine, the Prince and Princess

of Wales, because Bea and Eugenie have argued about it, and now Bea feels like she’s lost her best friend.

In addition to this, Beatrice is also being dragged back into her father’s shocking association with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. Production began on the Netflix film Scoop earlier this year. The film dramatizes Andrew’s disastrous 2019 Newsnight interview. Bea worked behind the scenes on the much-maligned chat and will appear as a character in Scoop.

According to a source, there was a better time for Bea not to have her sister’s advice.

With so much weighing on her mind, friends say Bea and her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, will put their plans for a longed-for second child on hold.

Beatrice feels overwhelmed with all her responsibilities, and the stress affects her.

She has always been a worrier, but now she is exhausting herself with concerns about her family’s issues. She notably misses her close grandmother, and the Queen always knew how to handle things.
