Beatrice showed off a more relaxed side to her style in a silk shirt and printed mini skirt at the Masterpiece Marie Curie party in July and best of all, she's a fan of the high-street too - the princess can often be seen showing off her latest bargains from Asos en route to dinner at the Chiltern Fire House.
