Princess Beatrice has been called upon to help facilitate an exciting creative activity! As Hello! reports, Beatrice will once again be judging artwork for a contest put on by Forget Me Not Children's Hospice, which she has been a patron of since 2012.
Princess Beatrice calls judging competition "such a pleasure"
Princess Beatrice recently expressed her enthusiasm about being involved in the activity. "I’m really looking forward to judging the Forget Me Not Summer Art Competition this year," the royal said in a statement shared on the organization's website. She said that doing so in 2020 was "such a pleasure," wishing the entrants luck. The royal also mentioned that she "can't wait to see all your beautiful pictures."
This year, Forget Me Not Children's Hospice is encouraging submissions on the theme of their mascot "Russell Bear" celebrating his 10th birthday. Anyone in the United Kingdom 16 years old or under can enter, with the winners announced by September 9. The top three works of art as selected by Beatrice will receive "fantastic arts and crafts hampers."
Princess Beatrice commented on wedding drawing last year
Princess Beatrice will likely make a video sharing this year's finalists for the Forget Me Not Summer Art Competition, since that's how they were presented last year. The royal held up each drawing she selected and briefly talked about them as she showed off the illustrations, which were themed around "Russell Bear's" summer holiday.
One of the drawings even happened to feature a special event Beatrice herself took part in last year— a wedding! In the video, Beatrice mentioned that her wedding was "so much fun." She and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, who tied the knot in a secret ceremony last July, are now expecting their first child together!
