The Duchess of York took to her twitter account to express her enthusiasm after Princess Beatrice was awarded a 2:1 in her honours degree in history at the University of London’s Goldsmiths College.
Sarah – who lovingly wore a bracelet with Beatrice’s name on it at the graduation event – tweeted: “Beatrice graduating today from Goldsmiths today. So proud of her achievement. As all mothers/parents are, well done… All graduates.”
Beatrice’s father Prince Andrew of York also attended the celebrations, which saw the 23-year-old royal – who was diagnosed with dyslexia at the young age of seven and had required extra classes to help her understand reading and writing – sporting a traditional mortar board and gown with a brown hood, the colour of a Bachelor of Arts degree from the top university.
Beatrice is now set to take up a wider role within the royal family after carrying out a series of internships.
A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: “This will develop her experience, particularly in business and philanthropy.”
Beatrice – who is an ambassador for the Children in Crisis charity – studied classic texts from famous figures including Freud and Aristotle during her degree.
