But neither Kate nor Pippa need to worry as Princess Beatrice has reportedly split from her boyfriend of 10 years Dave Clark. It was Prince William who introduced his little sister to Dave at a birthday party in 2008, but he later went on to regret his decision.
He never approved of Beatrice dating Dave. The prince also did not invite the latter to his royal wedding in 2011.
Beatrice’s parents Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson and her younger sister Princess Eugenie are “completely shocked” with the split news. “After ten years together, Beatrice and Dave had to wonder why they were not married,” said a source to Daily Mail.
The insider revealed that the pair called it quits a month ago after having a serious discussion about their future together. He said that Beatrice and Dave decided to stay apart and reflect on their future.
The insider added that the decision to split was mutual, and they “remain friends.” The split may have been due to the fact that Princess Beatrice had become more assertive and confident of late.
Pressure was mounting on Dave to propose to Beatrice, but he did not ask her to marry him in spite of her ultimatum and they split. Meanwhile, she has left her job to open her own start-up.
It is the fourth job in five years that the princess has left. There are rumors that Beatrice has left Sandbridge Capital.
However, Beatrice was vacationing in the Greek Islands with friends. Previously, the princess was in South of France enjoying downtime with her friends.
The reports of Princess Beatrice and Dave Clark’s split come at a time when the former will celebrate her 28th birthday on Monday. So now there is no question of a royal wedding for the princess anytime soon.
The Duchess of Cambridge can relax that Princess Beatrice will not upstage the society wedding of the year of her younger sister. They were rumors for a long time that Beatrice and Dave may take the vows soon, Celebrity Dirty Laundry reports.
