Princess Beatrice attended a rare royal engagement on Monday afternoon, according to the Court Circular. The 31-year-old was listed under an entry for her father, the Duke of York who held a meeting with Mr Charles Philipps, Chairman of Outward Bound. Beatrice is a Trustee for the educational charity, which helps young people to defy limitations through learning and adventures in the wild, while Prince Andrew is its patron.

The royal currently works full-time in business and is Vice President of Partnerships and Strategy at Afiniti, a data and software company based in Washington.
Beatrice celebrated her engagement to
Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi last month, after the property developer proposed in Italy with a bespoke diamond ring, designed by Mayfair atelier Shaun Leane. Princess Beatrice and Mr Mapelli Mozzi said in a statement: “We are extremely happy to be able to share the news of our recent engagement. “We are both so excited to be embarking on this life adventure together and can’t wait to actually be married. “We share so many similar interests and values, and we know that this will stand us in great stead for the years ahead, full of love and happiness.” They are yet to set a date for the wedding in 2020, but Beatrice’s mother, Sarah, Duchess of York confirmed the nuptials would take place in Britain.
