Princess Beatriceproves time and time again why she’s such an inspirational figure! Taking a trip across the pond to New York City on Wednesday (Sept. 26), the royal took to the WE Day UN stage to share some words of wisdom with the young audience, assuring them that they “are never alone, no matter what the obstacle.”
Stunning in a red-and-pink dress and stylish strappy pumps, the 30-year-old showed off her summer glow while chatting on-stage and delving into her personal experience with perseverance – especially with the eyes of the world on her as a member of the Royal Family. “As a young working woman in the public eye, I have had to learn some lessons the hard way, but those lessons have taught me to be strong and to never give up,” she said to the crowd, elaborating on her three pieces of advice. “Find that tiny flame inside of you that makes you shine brighter than you feel; that gives you the joy you deserve and the belief that you can change the world. The second is to never give up, no matter what obstacles are put in your way. If you push yourself a little each time you faced an obstacle, you realized your potential and get even closer to your goal.”
The princess continued: “And the final message is one that I have benefitted from the most: you don’t have to face anything alone. Not illness, not bullying, not anxiety or stress at school or at home. You can reach out to others. You should reach out to others. Find someone in your life you can confide in, and if you feel you can’t share with those closest to you, there are so many resources available.”
Her encouraging words were met with cheers from her adoring fans and fellow speakers at the Barclay Center, who included Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, Jacob Tremblay, Darren Kriss and Martin Luther King III. Despite being a royal, it’s certainly not easy living under a microscope – but luckily, Beatrice has the enduring support of her sister, Princess Eugenie , who’s set to wed Jack Brooksbank on Oct. 12 .
The two have been thick as thieves since birth, despite their differences. Back in 2008, Eugenie said of her sister to The Telegraph: “We get on fantastically well, perhaps because we do and think different things … Like all sisters, we have silly arguments about unimportant stuff, but we do love each other to death.” No matter what the royal goes through, we’re sure Eugenie is right there beside her, and as the bride’s Maid of Honour Beatrice is sure to calm any pre-wedding jitters!
