A birthday fit for a princess – and a few billionaires, too!
Princess Beatrice, who turns 27 on Saturday, has boarded a mega yacht off the coast of Ibiza. And she’s brought along some seriously high-powered guests.
Princess Beatrice was on the luxury yacht, Eclipse, which is owned by Russian billionaire and oligarch (a wealthy businessman with tremendous political influence) Roman Abramovich. She was then spotted on another yacht, Rising Sun, with TV royalty Oprah Winfrey. Winfrey’s good friend, Gayle King, was also pictured enjoying some R&R on the impressive super yacht.
Also spotted on the massive boat: Bob Iger, CEO of the Walt Disney Company.
The globe-trotting princess was pictured (barefoot!) boarding the yacht in a casual print dress, while Winfrey sported a flowing white ensemble.
Beatrice’s mother, Sarah Ferguson, has been interviewed several times by talk show queen Oprah Winfrey over the years.
The Duchess of York even had a documentary series on OWN called Finding Sarah, which explored her journey of self-discovery.
Beatrice’s longtime boyfriend, American-born Dave Clark, also came along for the ride. The couple has been dating for more than seven years.
The U.S.-born, U.K.-raised Clark is famous among the couple’s inner circle “for his cheeseburgers,” a friend previously told PEOPLE. “In fact, it’s a joint effort, as Bea helps too.”
Clark, who left Virgin Galactic to work at car service Uber, lives in New York City – where Beatrice has also settled to start a new role at a private equity firm following the short finance course that she took on the West Coast earlier this year.
The elder daughter of Fergie and Prince Andrew left her job at Sony Europe last December.
With her 27th birthday right around the corner, Princess Beatrice got a special shout-out on Thursday from dad Prince Andrew on Facebook, when he shared an adorable throwback photo from one of her first official portraits.
“#ThrowbackThursday Two week old Princess Beatrice in 1988,” the Duke of York’s Facebook page captioned the photo “HRH will celebrate her 27th Birthday on 8th August.”
