Princess Eugenie and Beatrice snubbed from Queen's job re-shuffle

By Bang

Princess Eugenie and Beatrice haven't been asked to take over some of their grandmother's charity patronages.

Prince Andrew - who is the son of the monarch and her husband Prince Philip - has been fighting hard to ensure that his daughters are treated as "major" royals like Prince William and his brother Harry, but it looks like his efforts have been a waste of time as the girls have been missed out of the queen's job re-shuffle, according to the Daily Mail newspaper.

Last year, the 90-year-old monarch gave up 25 of her charity patronages and decided to pass them on to her other family members to reduce her workload.

But, after hearing that Beatrice and Eugenie have been snubbed from the re-shuffle, Andrew, who inherited three patronages from his mother, will be fuming.

However, the girls shouldn't be too upset as Beatrice, 28, is already patron of nine charities, while Eugenie, 26, is patron of the late Mark Shand's Elephant Family.

Beatrice has been unemployed since July but it's believed she's currently working on developing a business app, although details on that aren't known.

She's also been raising money for charity through sporting events.

Eugenie, on the other hand, works at an art auction house.
