Tensions are running high between royal sisters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie after news emerged that Beatrice is being turfed out of their shared apartment at St James’ Palace.
According to The Mail On Sunday 29-year-old Beatrice will move out of the royal accommodation once Eugenie, 27, marries ance Jack Brooksbank in October. However New Idea sources say that Eugenie’s upcoming wedding is causing friction between the sisters.
‘Eugenie and Beatrice just aren’t seeing eye to eye at the moment,’ spills the insider. ‘Bea is pretty jealous watching her sister get ready for a big royal wedding when she’s single and lonely. ‘
Despite Bea – who split from long-term boyfriend Dave Clark in 2016 – having been linked to playboy CEO James Williams last month, she hasn’t met anyone special. ‘She always thought she would be the first one down the aisle, so it’s making her sad realising that her own fairytale ending is still a long way away.’
Also, the fact that Eugenie is moving out has caused huge problems for Bea, with their father, Prince Andrew saying he won’t pay the rent on a huge, expensive apartment if only Beatrice is living there. ‘This whole wedding has just caused a lot of tension between them and no-one would be surprised if they fall out.’
