As one of the most connected people in Hollywood it’s no surprise that Karlie Kloss hobnobs with the royals.

Beatrice and Karlie posed for pictures together on the model’s Instagram in Jordan in 2018, while on a holiday with a flurry on A-listers including Misha Nonoo and Ellie Goulding.  

When Karlie announced her engagement to Ivanka Trump’s brother-in-law Jared Kushner in 2018 she posted Princess Beatrice’s joyful reaction to her Instagram story – revealing her private account in the process.

Beatrice was also a guest at Karlie’s wedding later that year in Wyoming alongside other stars including Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, and Diane von Furstenberg.  

Beatrice is close friends with Holly Branson, daughter of Virgin founder Sir Richard.   

On the announcement of the Beatrice’s engagement, Holly, 37, took to Instagram to say that the Princess and her fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 36, are ‘made for each other’ in a heartfelt post.

The mother-of-three shared the sweet message alongside a selection of snaps of her and Beatrice together, including a glamorous black tie photo and one of their 2012 climb to the summit of Mont Blanc. 

The images document the women’s friendship throughout the years, including their various joint charity outings. 

One shows the friends as they prepared to take part in the 2010 London Marathon as part of a 34 person human caterpillar. 

Another more recent shot showed the pair at a charity gala in November last year. 

Holly was a guest at the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank in October last year.  

Beatrice was among the guest at Ellie Goulding’s star-studded wedding to Casper Jopling last year, and the pop star was also spotted at the Princess’ engagement party at Chiltern Firehouse months after. 

The Love Me Like You Do singer, 33,  has been good friends with Princess Beatrice and her sister Eugenie for years, with the star even holidaying with Beatrice in Jordan in 2017. 

In December, Beatrice referred to Ellie as her ‘dearest friend’ when the hitmaker appeared on Micheal McIntyre’s Big Show on BBC One.

Ellie was dared to take part in a segment which saw the comedian compose a message and end it out to all of her contacts.

He wrote: ‘This might sound a bit weird but I’m writing a song all about you. I’d love some help with the lyrics.

‘What do you remember about that unforgettable moment? And if you can make it rhyme even better. Hurry! I’m in the studio right now and my creative juices are flowing lol x (sic)’ 

This prompted a reply from Beatrice, where she wrote a sweet poem.  

It read: ‘My dearest friend I love so dearly. I feel so lucky, I adore this girl so clearly.

‘From wedding chats to Saturday evening, I adore this lady with every feeling. There truly isn’t a time that our friendship could equal a rhyme.’ 

Celebrity nutritionist Gabriela Peacock, 40, is friends with both the Princesses of York, with Tatler describing her as a ‘BFF’ of the elder sister.

‘Gabriela Peacock is on speed dial anytime she needs advice on looking and feeling fabulous,’ the society bible claimed.  

Eugenie is believe to have leaned on Gabriella to slim down ahead of her nuptials. last year, and the fitness guru is also reported to have helped Prince Harry drop half a stone ahead of his big day.  

Her website lists Jeremy Clarkson, Donna Air, and Alan Carr among those who have praised her services.

Gabriela was a guest at Princess Eugenie’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank, but could be set for a more prominent role on Beatrice’s big day.  

 

As membership director at exclusive members only club Annabel’s, Astrid Harbord, a former close pal of Prince Harry, is one member of high society many are trying to impress.

Part of the so-called ‘Glosse Posse’ a chummy band of William and Harry’s pals from Gloucestershire, Astrid has often been spotted at events with Princess Beatrice.    

Beatrice and the Astrid have even holidayed together, notably during a trip to Verbier for Valentine’s Day in 2015 – where they were joined by Harry, Eugenie, Jack Brooksbank, and Beatrice’s former flame Dave Clark.  

She is also close to the Cambridges and is thought to have been one of the select few who attended Kate Middelton’s secret hen do.

Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend, who recently starred in ITV drama, White House Farm, is very much still part of the royal circle and is often seen out on the social circuit with Beatrice and Eugenie. 

In fact, the York sisters’ friendship with the high society blonde pre-dated her relationship with Harry and it was the girls who first introduced the former couple.

The RADA-trained actress and dancer, 30,  has been spotted out in London with the royals in recent years and even enjoyed a skiing holiday with them in Verbier alongside Andrew and Fergie.

 

Socialite Sabine Getty is often seen in royal circles and was one of the famous faces at Beatrice’s star-studded engagement party last year.

Beatrice also attended the wedding of Sabine to billionaire heir Joseph Getty in 2015. 

Jewellery designer Sabine, 35, is never far from royal days out, and she made a sweet nod to Princess Diana in her outfit choice at another royal wedding. 

She carried a Lady Dior bag – a style loved by the late royal – when she attended the nuptials of Jean-Christophe Napoléon and Countess Olympia von und zu Arco-Zinneberg in Paris last October. 

Writing in the February issue of Tatler, Sabine, a contributing editor for the society magazine, explained the process of putting together the outfit started as soon as she and husband Joseph, a financier and member of the Getty dynasty, received the invitation. 

Beatrice’s aunt, Princess Diana, was famously close to her mother, Sarah Ferguson and the Yorks would have no doubt been touched by the gesture. 

Known as the Hogwarts Heiress, she grew up the grand Alnwick Castle where the Harry Potter films were shot, Lady Melissa Percy runs in the same circles as both the York sisters. 

The socialite, 32, who goes by Missy, is best friends with Prince Harry’s ex Chelsey Davy and was married to one of their best friends, Thomas van Straubenzee.

She retreated from the the royal set after she split from Thomas in 2013. Their wedding three years earlier was dubbed the ‘Royal Wedding of the North’ and was attended by Beatrice, Eugenie and Pippa Middleton. 

Princess Beatrice, 31,  is famously close to her younger sister Eugenie, 29, and was her maid of honour when she wed Jack Brooksbank last year.

The daughters of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson are often photographed together and Eugenie even took Beatrice’s engagement portrait.

Writing on her Instagram page at the time of the engagement announcement,  Eugenie said: ‘I’m so happy for you my dearest big sissy and dear Edo. It’s been a long time coming and you two are meant to be.’

This afternoon she shared a sweet photo of the pair as bridesmaids when they were children, dropping a hint that she’s already been lined up for the role. 

‘Today the family announced Beatrice will marry Edo on 29th May 2020. Very proud of this moment,’ the proud sibling wrote. 

Kate Moss attended Princess Eugenie’s wedding last year, and the model has a long-standing friendship with Sarah, Duchess of York. 

The cover girl has been on several holidays with Sarah Ferguson, and has even travelled with the Yorks to the royal wedding of Prince Christian of Hanover in March 2018. 

Her boyfriend, Count Nikolai von Bismarck also has a longstanding connection to the family and even snapped Beatrice’s official portrait for her 18th birthday.  

Whilst they aren’t often seen out and about together much, Princess Beatrice has been friends with Cara since childhood and the supermodel attended Eugenie’s 25th birthday celebrations in 2015. 

Cara attended Princes Eugenie’s wedding in October 2018 along with her sisters Poppy and Chloe. 

Their mother Pandora Delevingne is one of Sarah Fergusons oldest friends, having attended school together. 

Their daughters grew up enjoying playdates and going on holidays to Spain and Greece. 

In an interview in 2008, Poppy said the families had always enjoyed a ‘fabulous time’ together, and said that she felt very protective over the York sisters.
