PRINCESS BEATRICE and Princess Eugenie were reportedly “banished” from the lives of Princes William and Harry after a falling out between their mothers Sarah Ferguson and Diana, Princess of Wales, a royal biographer has claimed. Princess Beatrice celebrates her 34th birthday on Monday. The royal, who remains largely out of the spotlight, is likely to spend the occasion privately, likely in the company of her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, daughter Sienna and step-son Wolfie.

 

 

Beatrice and Edoardo divide their time between St James’s Palace in Westminster and the Cotswolds. Their London residence is just a two-mile walk from the current home of Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William, although it has been reported that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will soon be relocating to the Windsor estate. The relationship between Beatrice and her sister Princess Eugenie and the Cambridges has been the subject of speculation in recent weeks.

Royal commentator Neil Sean claimed that the two princesses have been “struggling” with the Duke and Duchess after the removal of Prince Andrew from public life. He said “There is a big story breaking in the Royal Family that has remained under the radar largely, and it’s to do with Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge, and William’s father Prince Charles.

 

 

According to very good sources, Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice are seemingly struggling to remain cordial with Prince William, Catherine and Charles. “It stems from the deal organised by William, the Queen, and Prince Charles to remove their father Prince Andrew from royal duties following his disgrace in recent years.” Beatrice and Eugenie are believed to have once been close with their cousin, with royal biographer Tina Brown describing the pair as the “favourite cousins” of the Duke and his brother Prince Harry.

However, in her 2022 book ‘The Palace Papers’, Ms Brown recounted an earlier obstacle in the royals’ relationship, claiming that the princes’ mother Diana, Princess of Wales “banished” the York sisters from seeing her boys. Ms Brown noted how important Diana’s sons were to her, referring to the times the princess took the two boys “to theme parks, shooting ranges, films,” and mentioning Diana breaking royal protocol as she “kicked off her shoes and ran barefoot in the mothers’ race” at Harry’s nursery.

 

 

But, the royal biographer also claimed that “there was a destructive side to Diana’s mothering,” adding that a “rampant insecurity” dictated that the Princess of Wales “always needed to be first in her boys’ hearts”. Ms Brown described Diana’s “pattern of cutting out people” the two princes cared about, which “continued throughout their childhood”. She claimed a falling out between Diana and Sarah Ferguson saw the princess “banish” the boys’ “favourite cousins” — Beatrice and Eugenie.

Princess Diana

 

The late princess allegedly “fatwa’d her sister-in-law for revealing she had developed verrucae after borrowing Diana’s shoes.” Diana and Sarah — affectionately nicknamed Fergie — had a complicated relationship, which over the years saw them as rivals, best friends and all that comes in between.

 

 

Long before the two women married into the Royal Family, the pair had a friendship, given that they were fourth cousins and their mothers went to school together. However, they only became close in 1980 — when Diana was 19 and Fergie was 21. Fergie was invited to the Royal Wedding of Diana and Prince Charles in 1981, and soon became a confidante for the new princess as she came to terms with all things royal.
