Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie are not only sisters, but the best of buds too.
The pair have lived together for over a decade. But the housemates are soon to be separated, as it’s been revealed that Beatrice is having to make a big sacrifice due to her younger sister’s impending marriage.
It’s been reported that 29-year-old Beatrice will soon have to move out of the pair’s apartment at St. James’s Palace, ahead of Eugenie’s October wedding to Jack Brooksbank.
According to the Mail on Sunday, Beatrice will have to move out of the palatial pad just after Eugenie’s wedding, as Eugenie will be moving out of the abode shortly after her big day.
And it’s said that Prince Andrew has reportedly decided it won’t be worth paying rent on the property just for her. Oh dear…
The Duke of York reportedly currently forks out £20,000 a year of his own money for the pad in rent.
But it’s thought that he won’t continue to fund the apartment, given that Beatrice spends much of her year in New York. The Princess works in business there.
Look’s like Beatrice will soon be house-hunting in the capital then!
Beatrice and Eugenie have lived in the palace for the last 10 years, although they’ve never been residents for free.
As they are not full-time working royals, the sisters do not get given royal accomodation for free, unlike Kate and Wills, who live at Kensington Palace.
Meghan and Harry are also allowed residence at Kensington Place rent-free, as they will both be full-time royals come their May 19th wedding.
They currently share the two-bedroom Nottingham Cottage – a place that Meghan is said to have made into a cosy marital home.
