Princess works at fashion store

Princess Beatrice
Princess Beatrice will work at the store until the end of May

Princess Beatrice has been giving style advice to shoppers in a London department store.

The 19-year-old, who is on a gap year, joined Selfridges in Oxford Street as a personal shopper on work experience.

A spokeswoman for the royal said: "She wanted to get experience of a big retail store and its buying process."

Fifth-in-line to the throne, the princess began her work experience earlier this week and will work at the store until the end of May.

Princess Beatrice of York will start a history degree at Goldsmiths College in the autumn.

Earlier this week the princess became the junior ambassador of Children in Crisis - a charity established by her mother Sarah, Duchess of York.
