Princess Beatrice keen on Strictly

2011-11-14 16:39

London - Britain's Princess Beatrice wants to appear on Strictly Come Dancing.

The 23-year-old royal is a huge fan of the British celebrity ballroom contest but was upset when her father Prince Andrew banned her from being a contestant on the BBC programme.

She is quoted by Now magazine as saying: "I absolutely love Strictly.... The costumes, the glamour - it's a real girly show.

"If I were on it, I'd certainly give judge Craig Revel Horwood a run for his money. I mentioned it to dad but it was a stern no."

Last month, Beatrice - whose mother is Andrew's ex-wife Sarah Ferguson - visited the show and was seen socialising with contestants afterwards.

Australian actress Holly Valance later revealed she had invited the princess to support her in the competition.

She said: "My friend Princess B came along on Saturday. She's on strict instructions to vote for me. That's the only time I can boss a princess around."

    Strictly come prancing perhaps, she looks like a horse.

      @goyougoodthing. Clint bro. Maybe you got your poor sense of humour from Vega but didn't they at least teach you about homonyms and how to spell? The 'bridal' word is strictly come wedding. The 'bridle' word (and I assume the one you meant)is what is used for a horse. By not knowing the difference between the two you have shown that while Beatrice may (in your opinion) look like a horse you form a very special part of the horse. The part that sits under the tail.

      No, just a bridal and a saddle
