Prince William‘s cousin, who loves to wear fabulous fascinators, put on a more tame and traditional topper Friday for her graduation from Goldsmiths College.

With her parents, Prince Andrew, the Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York in attendance, Beatrice, 23, received BA Honors degree in history and the history of ideas, according to the U.K.’s Daily Mail.

“I have had the most amazing university experience,” Beatrice said. “Goldsmiths College is a wonderful place to study. I am so lucky to have had the support of the incredible tutors and staff. I am so excited about my results. I wish everyone graduating today congratulations as well.”

What will she do next? “‘Princess Beatrice will over the coming months broaden her knowledge and experience to complement her position as a member of the Royal Family,” a palace spokesman says. “This will involve undertaking a number of internships to develop her experience, particularly in business and philanthropy.”

Well, hats off!
