    Default Princess Beatrice, the horsey mouth breather, looks around a £4.25million house

    For most students squalid digs are as much a part of university life as essay deadlines and hangovers. But not if you're Princess Beatrice.


    Bravely defying the property slump, the 19-year-old Royal has been househunting in Belgravia, one of London's most desirable – and eye-wateringly expensive – areas.
    Last week, Prince Andrew's daughter looked around a £4.25million four-bedroom, four-bathroom house in a street where David Blunkett and Enoch Powell used to live. Scroll down for more ...

    The stucco-fronted property boasts a first-floor drawing room with balcony, a "media/playroom", a 10ft by 10ft roof terrace and a 24ft patio garden – perfect for hosting student parties.
    There is also a study that might come in handy when Beatrice, who is currently enjoying a gap year, begins a history course at Goldsmiths College in September.
    Estate agents describe the property as "an elegant west-facing family house of 2,390 square feet in an exclusive street close to Eaton Square and Sloane Square".
    But it comes with a price tag that will shock millions of ordinary parents struggling to fund their children's increasingly expensive years at university.
    House-hunting: Beatrice on her way to see townhouse


    Beatrice, fifth in line to the Throne, is the beneficiary, along with her sister Eugenie, of a trust fund set up by the late Queen Mother in 1994. It's not known how much this is worth – one report claimed £2.5million – but Beatrice was granted access to her share when she turned 18 in 2006.


    Beatrice, a regular at fashionable London nightclubs such as Mahiki and Boujis, was casually dressed as she was shown round the Belgravia house last week accompanied by an estate agent, a friend and her Royal protection officer.
    Friends expressed surprise that she had been considering such an expensive property but confirmed she was looking to buy alone and not with her mother, the Duchess of York.
    "Her mother is taking a keen interest but nothing more than that," said one. "They get on very well and they are very close but they are not about to move in together.
    "Beatrice has been looking at a number of properties around Central and South-West London. She wants a flat or a house and the search has been going on for a few months.
    "I do think it's unlikely that she's going to be spending anything like £4.25million. I'd have thought £1million is more her mark. She'll be trying to put down as much cash as possible and not saddle herself with a huge mortgage."
    If Beatrice were to take out a 100 per cent mortgage on the Belgravia property – an impossibility for most first-time buyers given the current credit crunch – she would face monthly repayments of nearly £28,000 on a 25-year loan at 6 per cent interest.
    A deposit of £1million would reduce her repayments to just over £21,000 and a 50 per cent mortgage, requiring a deposit of £2.12million, would mean making monthly repayments of nearly £14,000.
    Beatrice doesn't have a job but is due to start a couple of internships in London soon, "one corporate, the other more creative", according to friends. Scroll down for more ...

    So if she were planning to buy the Belgravia house she would almost certainly need help from her parents. Her mother Sarah has lived for a year at Dolphin House, a mansion near Egham, Surrey, but two months ago she was forced to move out after a fire, started by a candle, caused £20,000 of smoke damage.

    She temporarily moved in with her ex-husband Prince Andrew at Royal Lodge in nearby Windsor Great Park.
    It may be that the Duchess of York's previous money problems have helped her advise her daughter. Sarah fell into debt after the end of her marriage in 1992 and owed about £4million four years later. She has since transformed her fortunes with a series of books and TV appearances in America and a lucrative contract with WeightWatchers. The Duchess of York's spokeswoman declined to comment.

    Nigella lives in Belgravia. Maybe they'll be neighbours.

    aww... y'all don't be so mean. I don't think she is completely unfortunate. I think she is cute but not beautiful. She looks like her father though.

    Her boyfriend is a hottie. And you know he wouldn't be with her if she weren't a princess. Surely she must know this...

    She has nice hair, but she's unfortunately gotten the short end of the royal attractiveness stick.
