Balancing a day job and being a princess isn't easy, according to Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie."We are the first: we are young women trying to build careers and have personal lives, and we're also princesses and doing all of this in the public eye," Princess Beatrice, a business consultant, told UK Vogue."It's hard to navigate situations like these - there is no precedent."They also highlighted the social media pressures on them as young royals."It's so easy to recoil when you see a perfect image, but it's important that it's real. We're real," said Princess Eugenie, who started posting on Instagram in March.
