So, apparently, there is a Princess Beatrice. And apparently, she's fifth in line to the British throne. We have already learned so much more than we usually do on Mondays.

But wait, there's more: we now know that Beatrice drives a BMW 1-series. Or rather: drove, since the poor German coupe was crushed to death between two busses. Bea and her bodyguard are fine, although the royal was apparently very shaken. We have images of Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston in our heads, though the scene alongside the roundabout where the accident took place probably wasn't that entertaining. Then again, neither was The Bodyguard, so the bar is set pretty low.

We're happy to hear that the princess is okay, but happy to see the BMW go. After all, it's the same one that was stolen last year (when Bea went shopping and left the keys in the ignition). Maybe someone's trying to tell her something. Something like: BUY A BRITISH CAR. THE ASTON MARTIN DB9 IS LOVELY.
