With reported plans to slim down the list of “working royals” to just the sovereign and his immediate family when he ascends the throne, Prince Charles is no doubt delighted to hear that Princess Beatrice was recently offered a job.
Though Prince Andrew is said to want his daughters to be among those royals cutting ribbons and being a patron of several charities and organizations, it seems that Beatrice might be joining the daily grind the rest of us have to suffer through.
Beatrice, who graduated Goldsmiths College last September, was offered the position of “junior fashion assistant” at JoSoBlu Accessories. Monster and Critics obtained the offer letter, sent by Joelle Seksum, chief designer of the label.
“We understand that like many recent graduates you have been unable to find a job since leaving university last year,” the letter reads. ”I’m delighted to tell you that we have an opening for a junior fashion assistant at our accessory label JoSoblu and we would like to offer you the position. We have been impressed with your personal fashion style, particularly the beautiful Philip Treacy hat you wore at your cousin Prince William’s wedding last year, and we believe you would be a real asset to our young team.”
As a junior fashion assistant, Beatrice would be “assisting the designer, sourcing materials and attending product launches,” and (something they probably don’t teach at the palace) “filing and typing and other tasks such as fetching errands and making tea,” in the $23,000/year position.
In addition to the 28 days of vacation she would receive, Beatrice would also get an extra bank holiday off to celebrate her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II‘s Diamond Jubilee.
The princess has reportedly not yet responded to the offer letter.
