Today Princess Beatrice took advantage of royal privilege to get on board with her younger family and escape from a snowstorm in Switzerland.
As the oldest child of the Duke and Duchess of York, this 33-year-old mother-of-two is 10th in line for the British throne.
The down-to-earth princess decided to ride public transport, after her and her children were trapped in a blizzard while they had lunch in Verbier’s luxurious ski resort.
This comes at a time when Beatrice’s father Prince Andrew was struggling to get the US sex case against him thrown out. A judge in New York told the royal he would find out ‘pretty soon’ – most likely within days – if his bid to have the lawsuit dismissed would be successful.

Beatrice waves today after her and her family became stranded in Verbier’s blizzard.
Beatrice set out today, along with her husband Edoardo Maggi Mozzi and their daughter Siena as well as Christopher Wolfe, also known by the nickname ‘Wolfie,’ to make a run for the No. 1 bus. They would be heading to the ski chalet to meet Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess.
After the two-mile and ten minute journey, Beatrice and her family alighted on the free “navette” ski-bus that took them to the summit of the mountain.
After seeing the struggle of the family, a friend offered to take her to the chalet.
The royals then marched up the mountain through the snow to their £17million chalet which boasts fantastic views over the Bagnes Valley.
Beatrice, her husband in property development was seen beckoning Edo into a café where he seemed to be paying for the meal. Famously, the Royal Family doesn’t carry any cash.
Yesterday, Princess Beatrice (left), and Edoardo Mozzi (right), were also seen walking in Verbier.
As her husband Jack Brooksbank walked in Verbier yesterday, Princess Eugenie was seen with her skis.
Barry Beville, an onlooker said that he was shocked to see Princesses get on public transport. She’s very down to Earth and friendly.
She acted as a mother in times of crisis. The snowstorm was over and they needed to move on. She waved down at the bus, trying to prevent it from departing.
Her 31-year-old sister, Princess Eugenie went skiing with Jack Brooksbank. The snowstorm was avoided by the Duchess and she stayed inside.
It comes after a US court was told that the accuser of Beatrice’s father Prince Andrew waived her right to sue him for sexual assault when she signed a $500,000 (£370,000) settlement agreement.

Andrew B Brettler was Andrew’s lawyer. He argued that Virginia Giuffre and Jeffrey Epstein had made a confidential arrangement which, she claimed, allowed her to pursue other men.
This document, which was published Monday, described Andrew’s 2009 $500,000 payoff to his accuser and agreed that Epstein, as well any person or entity, would be’released, acquitted, satisfy, and forever discharged’.
According to the lawyer for the duke, Ms Giuffre claimed that her claim for damages was unfair and unjust. He should have dismissed it.
The case is being presided over by Judge Lewis A Kaplan. He told parties that he will make a decision “very soon”.
