Princess Beatrice Just Offered a Rare View Inside St. James's Palace During Brand-New Video

Princess Beatrice rarely shows us the inside of St. James's Palace, but we just got treated to a special shot of her royal living space.

The recently-deemed contessa shared a video in honor of World Book Day, where she read from Kate Griggs's book Xtraordinary People. The children's story highlights the many strengths that come with being dyslexic.

While Beatrice is seen sporting a gray gingham top, our eyes were drawn to the rare shot of her London residence. We are treated to a view of some gorgeous crown moldings and a series of cream-paneled doors and cabinets.

The Princess's at-home reading was in partnership with the Made by Dyslexia charity, of which she is an ambassador. In a promo video for the event, she discussed her own experiences with dyslexia, which she was diagnosed with at the age of 7.

In the video, she says, "What you may not know about me is that I am 'made by dyslexia,' which was a bit of a struggle when I was at school. But now, thanks to all the practice and a lot of support, I feel so lucky to be 'made by dyslexia' and working with some incredible organizations, who are there to support you on your journey to find out what your superpower is."

In addition to her charitable efforts, Princess Beatrice has been enjoying newlywed life with her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. The two secretly got married last July at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor, after the ceremony was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
