The source claims the Yorks hoped the BBC would screen the interview the same night it was filmed and were left disappointed when producers told them it would take a few days to prepare the footage. The publication alleged Beatrice was "mortified" she did not do more to prevent the video from airing.
"Even though she's their daughter, both Sarah and Andrew rely on Beatrice's judgment a lot when it comes to dealing with the public as she's got an old head on young shoulders," the source said. "You can't really blame Beatrice because I think the odds were stacked against her on this one."
"Andrew, Fergie and Amanda decided they had to do it."
Prince Andrew's disastrous interview has allegedly hit Princess Beatrice so hard that she was tearful during her fiance, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi's 36th birthday party.
"Beatrice was sombre and make-up-free for the birthday dinner," a member of Beatrice's inner circle told The Daily Mail. "She was probably worried that her mascara would run. She seemed quite tearful at times. In fact, Beatrice has been in tears every day since the interview went out."
