Inside Princess Beatrice’s Friendship with Karlie Kloss

Princess Beatrice of York, known as Bea, has well-connected friends. Just look at her boyfriend, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, who is connected to one of Britain’s past prime ministers.

Her social circle includes celebrities, fellow royalty, and more. One of her friends is model, Project Runway host, and Kode with Klossy founder, Karlie Kloss. Go inside their friendship, ahead.

How did Bea and Karlie Kloss meet?

While it’s unclear how exactly the two women met, they do have overlap in their social circles. As Bustle points out, Beatrice and Kloss are both friends with model and actress Cara Delevingne and musicians Ed Sheeran and Ellie Goulding. Goulding made an appearance on Kloss’ Instagram in an April 2018 post of the two sitting on ATVs in the Wadi Rum Desert.

Another mutual friend of Kloss and Beatrice’s is fashion designer Misha Nonoo. Nonoo is also a friend of Meghan Markle, which may be how Beatrice met the designer if not through Kloss.

It makes sense that the two would become friends because of how many friends they share. And they both likely get invited to the same industry events. Here’s hoping Beatrice makes an appearance on Project Runway to help Kloss out with hosting duties.

They attended a wedding together

When blogger Colby Jordan and art collector Alberto “Tico” Mugrabi were getting married in the south of France in September 2016, Kloss took Beatrice as her date. Kloss shared a picture of her and Beatrice at the wedding on Instagram, captioning the picture “my wedding date” with a kissy face emoji.

They watched tennis together

On September 11, 2016, the two were seen sitting in the same box at the US Open Tennis Championship in Queens, New York. Kloss was sitting with her then-boyfriend-now-husband, Kushner, while Beatrice was sitting one row back.

Kloss shared engagement news

Princess Beatrice was one of the people Kloss told about her engagement to Joshua Kushner (brother of Jared Kushner who is married to Ivanka Trump) on FaceTime, according to Harper’s Bazaar. Kloss posted a screenshot of Beatrice’s reaction to the news on her Instagram story along with other family and friends’ reactions. Her shocked face is priceless.

Kloss also tagged Beatrice using her private Instagram account, @beayork, revealing that she even had an Instagram account let alone a private one. As she’s a bit further removed from the throne, Beatrice is one of the royal family members who is allowed to have an Instagram account.

Did Kloss invite Bea to her wedding?

October 2018 was a busy month for both Kloss and Beatrice. Beatrice’s sister, Princess Eugenie, got married to Jack Brooksbank at St. George’s Chapel.

Kloss also got married in the same month to Kushner, her boyfriend of six years. Kloss was noticeably absent from Eugenie’s wedding, as Town & Country reported.

But did Beatrice get an invite to her friend’s wedding? Maybe. Kloss got married six days after Beatrice. But the ceremony for the wedding of Kloss and Kushner was reportedly very intimate with only 80 guests.
