Princess Beatrice has graciously explained who she is to an unaware royal fan, at the Platinum Jubilee celebration, before acknowledging how “lucky” she is to have the Queen as her grandmother.

The 33-year-old princess complimented her grandmother during the Queen’s four day Jubilee celebration.

In a recent video shared to TikTok by @royalfamilyfanpage5, Princess Beatrice could be seen at the Big Jubilee Lunch event last Sunday, as a woman there touches the royal’s arm before asking her who she is.

After introducing herself as the Queen’s granddaughter, Princess Beatrice briefly noted how “lucky” she was to have the 96-year-old monarch in her life.

“The Queen is my granny,” she said, while holding a lunch guest’s hand. “Yes, she’s my granny. I’m very, very lucky.”

As of 8 June, the clip has more than 2.7m views, with TikTok users in the comments praising Princess Beatrice and how she communicated with the woman at the event.

“She is soo underrated tbh!” one wrote. “But I love how she is doing her duty even though she is not part of the senior royals, she’s still doing her duties.”

“Beatrice is lovely,” another said.

A third person wrote: “Did you see how she held the woman’s hand? How sweet of her!”

The royal family member has previously opened up about her relationship with the Queen. While speaking to Hello! back in 2017, she noted how her two role models in her life were her mother, Sarah, Duchess of York, and her grandmother.

Regarding the Queen, Princess Beatrice acknowledged how much of an inspiration the monarch is, as she’s been very involved with her community.
