It has been reported that Princess Beatrice, 27, has ended her 10 year relationship with boyfriend Dave Clark. 10 years. A decade. I think you get the point. This is probably a rough time for our Bea, so I will be kind. Or try to anyway. So, let’s do this.
It was reported that PB and Dave had some ‘make or break’ talks regarding getting married. Well, hot damn. After 10 years, I should like to think that the ‘make or break’ talk happened like 7 years ago. But we are all different. I totally get it. In the below picture, Beatrice and Dave are pictured on the left. They seem happy here. Dave appears to be counting all of his gold as Beatrice is thinking about how she is going to spend it. Yikes. I did say I was going to be nice. This is going to be harder than I thought. But I will try.
Anyway, a source who is close to the pair has commented that their breakup was a mutual decision and that the pair remain the best of friends. Well, of course they would say that. You are SUPPOSED to say that. I mean, who wants to be known as not coping and having a total meltdown? Nobody. Nobody I know. I mean, Beyonce did sing about this issue when she sang:
‘Cause if you liked it then you should have put a ring on it
If you liked it then you shoulda put a ring on it
Don’t be mad once you see that he want it
If you liked it then you shoulda put a ring on it
Oh, oh, oh
It is almost like Queen Bae wrote those lyrics for Princess Beatrice. Seriously. In addition, Queen Bae also wrote about being ‘drunk in love’ too. The point I am trying to make here is that if you should find yourself having man troubles (and let’s face it, admitting it… IS the first step) then you should listen to some Beyonce. For real.
As for me, I was hoping for another royal wedding for next summer. I mean, things seemed to be going well between our Beatrice and her beau. Further, members of the Royal Family are said to be ‘shocked and saddened.’ I mean, no one saw it coming. Beatrice’s family, to include her Mum, Fergie and her Pa, known as ‘Randy Andy’ and her sister Eugenie, are said to be ‘completely shocked’ and devasted by the news. Devasted? Did Dave Clark break up with them too? Well, he kind of did. Sarah, Duchess of York has said that she feels as though she lost a son. What a sad and telling thing to say.
The pair in happier times. Am assuming this photo was pre-breakup.
The REAL reason (actually there are a few…)
So apparently, another source has commented on their break up. The sources said:
‘Sarah considers Dave to be part of the family. She is very sad it didn’t work out. They have been together longer than many marriages last.’
It is interesting to note that rumours have circulated for a LONG time that Prince William DID NOT approve of the relationship between Beatrice and Dave, and thus demonstrated his DISLIKE of Dave, 32, by refusing to invite him to the Royal Wedding in 2011. Apparently, Prince William is said to have considered Dave an ‘indiscreet’ addition to the extended family and was opposed to the prospect of his little cousin marrying him. Wait. Hold up. What the what? Who does Prince William think he is? I mean, apart from our future King…he simply had no right to get involved. Seriously, he should have put his royal nose elsewhere and out of his little cousin’s business. I mean, come. on.
Another reason is that apparently pressure for Dave to propose intensified in a BIG way, in May last year after the birth of Princess Charlotte. Yes, really. That tiny tot has a lot of influence in the Royal family and she is still a toddler. You see, Charlotte pushed Beatrice down to SEVENTH in line to the Throne, this meant that Beatrice no longer had to seek permission to marry, from the Queen (who would have probably taken William’s advice on the matter…as he would have told his nan ‘hell to the no’ when discussing their possible marriage).
It was thought the Succession of Crown Act (which requires the first six in line to the Throne to seek Royal approval) had been somewhat of a stumbling block for the pair. But when dastardly Dave failed to propose for more than a year after Charlotte was born, Beatrice decided to address the problem head-on, by head butting him. Ok, I made that up. But she DID address the ‘problem.’ A source has indicated that Beatrice, who has of late become more assertive and confident (respect) gave Dave an ultimatum-but it backfired because he DID not ask her to marry him. As a result, they both agreed that with no marriage in their future, it was time to go their separate ways. Yikes. Beatrice, if you are reading this (and I know you are) I just want to tell you that it is a pretty unwise thing to give a man (or anyone) an ultimatum-because it could backfire. I mean-please, girl-child, you should have known this. But remember this for next time. Just sayin.’
So that’s it. Actually the pair have been broken up for a month now-they still talk of course, and sometimes they even refer to their split as a ‘break’ but I guess you will tell yourself anything to feel better. So like I said, they have been split up for a month and there is no reconciliation on the cards.
So in closing, I am sorry that Princess Beatrice has broken up with her boyfriend of 10 years. You probably don’t believe me-as I may have appeared to make light of her current situation, but really, I am sorry for her. She must be devastated. I mean, people break up-it happens. But normally when we break it off with people, it is not scrutinised in the Press, and that in my opinion…kind of sucks. As it is kind of a private thing between her and Dave.
So with that being said here is my advice for Princess Beatrice… chin up girlfriend-there are plenty of fish in the sea.. have some ‘me time’ for a little bit, practice some self-care/love, go to a spa, get a mani and pedi and throw your energies into something else. Go shopping on Oxford Street. Go to the movies or take yourslef out to dinner-ALONE. You need to wash that man right out of your hair. You can do it mama, I believe in YOU. That is all.
