Princess Beatrice pays tribute to the Queen for encouraging her curious nature of asking ‘why not?’ and ‘why can’t you?’ – amid her father Prince Andrew’s sacking from royal duties

  • Newly engaged Princess Beatrice feels the Queen encouraged curious nature
  • Royal, 31, praised her grandmother during a tech summit in London, on Tuesday
  • It comes after her father the Duke of York, 59, was ‘sacked’ from royal duties 

Princess Beatrice has revealed that it is the Queen that encouraged her curious nature of asking ‘Why not?’ and ‘Why can’t you?’.

The newly-engaged royal, 31, praised her grandmother during a tech summit, which she hosted for 150 guests at St James’s Palace in London, on Tuesday.

When one attendee asked how the monarch inspires her, Beatrice said she was mostly influenced by the 93-year-old’s inquisitive nature of always asking ‘Why not?’ and ‘Why can’t you?’, according to Hello!.

It comes after her father Prince Andrew was ‘sacked’ from royal duties in a desperate bid to contain the fall-out from his disastrous Newsnight interview about his years of friendship with Jeffrey Epstein.

Meanwhile, Beatrice invited entrepreneurs, CEOs and students to the Silicon Valley Comes to the UK summit last week.

The special event was an opportunity for people on both sides of the Atlantic to discuss tech issues – and according to the publication, it was a roaring success. 

One guest reportedly praised Beatrice for being an ‘excellent role model for the Royal Family’, and another suggested she was following in her grandmother’s footsteps.

The private occasion was said to involve roundtable discussions and talks at St James’s Palace, followed by a glamorous dinner at the Design Museum. 

Beatrice, who is Sarah Ferguson’s eldest daughter, is set to marry Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi after an 11-month romance.

Her father, the Duke of York and the Queen’s second son, has effectively been retired by the royal family aged 59, after last night announcing he would step down from public duties for the ‘foreseeable future’.

The Duke was forced out of public life after lengthy discussions with his eldest brother the Prince of Wales, who is touring New Zealand, and the Queen. 

A royal insider said: ‘When the Queen and the Prince of Wales stand firm together they are a pretty formidable combination in terms of getting things done.’  

It is unprecedented for a senior royal to be asked to stand down in this way and illustrates how damaging Andrew’s BBC Newsnight interview was for himself, and the monarchy.

The 59-year-old prince and his team – led by private secretary Amanda Thirsk – knew speaking publicly about the Epstein scandal was a huge gamble.

But they felt backed into a corner following the sex offender’s suicide and repeated claims by Virginia Roberts that she was ‘trafficked’ by her abuser to have sex with the Queen’s son on three occasions, the first when she was just 17.

Mrs Thirsk and her team hoped that by choosing such a formidable interviewer as Emily Maitlis the general public would be convinced of his innocence and honesty. 

Instead, millions of viewers were left astonished by Andrew’s attempt to explain his relationship with Epstein. 

The Duke told Maitlis in his appearance that he did not have sex with Virginia Roberts.
