It was just last year that there was all that unflattering publicity about Beatrice in a bikini so you think Eugenie could have learned something from that. However, since their mother seems to be their biggest influence and she saw nothing wrong with Beatrice's choice of swim wear, I guess I'm not surprised that the same thing is happening again. Sarah always goes on and on about how her daughters are royal princesses but I can't tell what exactly it means to them. It doesn't seem to imply that they should be held to a higher standard of behavior or be civic minded, and if Sarah's performance as a royal is anything to go by then the standards for Beatrice and Eugenie have been set pretty low.

Most teenage girls here wear bikinis. One-piece bathing suits are incredibly uncommon and usually such dull, matronly designs. At a push the more self-conscious teen here will opt for a tankini, but bikinis here are expected for anyone; irrespective of size.

Actually, I have a teenage daughter and many of her friends wear one-piece suits. There are some very attractive ones out there that are anything but matronly. There are swim specialty stores that have professional bathing suit fitters and these girls look at bathing suits the same way many look at how their pants or dresses fit. They know what to show off and what to hide.  Eugenie should have sought out some help.

Sorry to hear you don't have swim specialty stores, but then it might be a really good business opportunity for someone in the UK.

Considering the bikini had the US flag on it, I'd be surprised if she bought it in England. She has been partying around the world this last year and it's not like she's limited to shopping at home. For all we know her mother could have bought it for her. Anyway, I just wish that people who want to have their royal titles and privileges were just a tiny bit more cognizant of the expected behavior that goes along with it.

 Thumb up  I adored Speedo one pieces when I was a teen.

Most swim stores tend to carry Speedo one-pieces which are usually associated with professional swimmers. The designs tend to be functional rather than pretty, unsurprisingly, as they are aimed at those who have a specific interest.

I'm not really surprised that the UK doesn't have specialty swimwear shops or that the one pieces they have are more functinal rather than fashionable.  I guess the UK being further North of the equator than say USA or the mediteranean countries, I associate it with being less hospitable for swimming/water sports in general, which I also associate with no need for swimwear shops--maybe just catalogue purchasing of such things.  Obviously that is an incorrect notion and one I've pulled off the tele! (I've not been fortunate enough to visit the UK yet....)

But I was also kind of going with the USA flag motiff and thinking that she'd probably bought it in her travels this past year--
I strongly doubt that she would have bought a USA flag bikini anywhere outside the US!  Or, Fergie could have even picked it up in her travels, as a gift or souvenir.   

My impression is that she is young, and despite being well traveled she is quite naive.  I think that when the press dogs out her sister, and mummy comes running to defend saying that the press is wrong wrong wrong, that Eug might just think her mother is right right right--when the truth lies in the middle. 
Both parties are right actually:
Fergie says there is nothing wrong with her daughters' weight and health--correct!  Bea and Eug are perfectly fine the way they are and are apparently healthy as.
Others say that the York sisters are a bit bulgy and 'soft' and could use some fashion tips and advice--correct!  Bea and Eug both wear things that are unsuited to their weight and figures, and obviously have no idea what they wear well, what looks good on them.

With todays teens being as conscious of themselves and their looks as they are (not the same as self-conscious) (aren't they?  they seem to be!) you would think that both girls would be extremely aware of how clothes appear on them.

Perhaps they are a little bit more full of themselves and their social standing than they say they are; that because they are royal and princesses that they can do no wrong and commit no faux pas?  That they can wear what they want and nobody will say anything because after all they ARE technically in line for the throne? 
Not saying they are thinking this way; just posing another direction of my perception. 
However, if Little Star is correct (no doubt she is!), and it's just assumed that every woman will wear a 2 piece, and then every woman actually does wear a 2 piece, then the York girls really have nothing else to go on, right?  They are doing what everyone else in society does and accepts, so in reality they know no better, despite be well traveled and socially educated. 
People in general are sheep, and will follow the rest of the flock.  If the first one jumps over a cliff, the rest of them will too.

Well as spring is here most of the stores have starte stocking summer clothes, including swimwear and yet again it's mainly 2-pieces. I was on the Topshop website earlier, which is one of the biggest British retailers, and out of something like 4 pages of swimwear they had 3 1-pieces. There's just not that much demand for 1-pieces which can be a pain when yo do actually want one.
But I was also kind of going with the USA flag motiff and thinking that she'd probably bought it in her travels this past year--

he could have bought it here, you get lots of clothing that has different flags etc. A couple of years back during the summer whenit was one of the football events (World Cup or Euro, can't recall which) there were lots of T-shirts etc with other flags, motifs etc.

huh.  I am really surprised by that.  I just would have thought a 1 piece would be more common. 

Also, I'm kind of blown away that she may have very well bought her USA bikini in the UK.  I guess I'm just so used to getting flack for being American (I seem to be the sole representative of my home country whenever anything the US is involved in goes wrong! lol   Roll Eyes Wish I'd know that--I'd have asked for a raise!   ).  I automatically assumed we're unpopular world wide!  lol 

I guess it really doesn't matter though.  As long as people keep wearing unsuitable attire, we have something to talk about.  If they figure it out and wear appropriate things, there will still be OTHER things to talk about.   Wink

Well, if they did more charity work and seemed more compasionate toward those less fortunate, then the occasional holiday with security wouldn't be such an issue.

They are like it or not "princesses of the realm" and grandchildren of the current queen and souvereign.
As such they of course pose a certain risk, a threat to their own lives and a risk to Great Britain.
Imagine a kidnapping, say some insurgent group of the middle east kills two birds at once by blackmailing GB into some sort of UN or Nato disaster. Nice revenge for the colonial times, in which Britain had held some of these countries by the balls, and a nice and very effective act against todays allies. "get out of ... or we kill one of the Queens grandchildren" is IMO quite an imaginable scenerio. Might not work out in the end, but the rucus would cost....
