Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana wanted to be introduced to Beatrice – daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson – as they both sat in the front row of designer Elie Saab’s show, but was allegedly stopped by a bodyguard.
After Sirivannavari explained herself, Beatrice’s protection officer reportedly told her: “She don’t want to meet no princesses. She’s sitting here, not getting up.”
A furious Sirivannavari – the granddaughter of Thailand’s King Bhumibol Adulyadej – turned on her heel and, according to the Daily Telegraph, said: “Is that the sort of princess you’ve got?”
A spokesman for Princess Beatrice said: “The princess’s visit to Paris was in a personal capacity. We do not comment on security issues.”
Princess Sirivannavari – who is a fashion student in her native country and attended five Paris shows alone – was unavailable for comment.
