Princess Beatrice is busier than ever after a jam-packed weekend of back-to-back coronation events!
Last night, the royal attended the winner's ceremony of Oscar's Book Prize—an annual prize for the best picture book of the year for young children— at The Ivy West Street in London. For the occasion, Beatrice donned Hill House Home's cult favorite Ellie Nap Dress in a navy and gold colorway from a previous season. She wore it over a navy silk blouse with a contrast collar and paired the elegant ensemble with a black YSL Sac de Jour Nano bag and blue Carvela pumps.
While Beatrice's exact Nap Dress is no longer available, Hill House Home continues to design the reasonably priced style (it's available for $150) in a number of different shades, patterns, and fabrics. This season, you can get your hands on one in navy, red, black, white, pink, green, and in several prints including florals, stripes, and gingham.
The princess is a patron for Oscar's Book Prize, which celebrated its 10 year anniversary last night. The award was founded in honor of Oscar Ashton, who died from an undetected heart condition in 2012 at age 3. This year's winner was The Boy With Flowers in His Hair by author and illustrator Jarvis. According to the summary, it tells a tale about friendship and being there for someone when they are at their most vulnerable.
Speaking at the event, Princess Beatrice said: "The award holds a very special place in my heart." She also referenced her uncle King Charles's coronation ceremony, as well as her late grandmother Queen Elizabeth's love for literacy, and said how she "was reminded this weekend, (it’s been a bit of a big weekend), about the importance of community."
Beatrice continued, "Growing up in a world surrounded by books, we can take for granted that not everyone is so lucky. We need to remember in a world of screens and AI, it is moments of community, including between parents and children, that we need to keep alive."
