Princess Beatrice Takes Uber From LAX After a Flight From London to Los Angeles

On Friday, Princess Beatrice arrived at Los Angeles International Airport after a flight from London. The royal hailed an Uber and waved to photographers before hopping into her car.

On Friday, Princess Beatrice arrived from London to Los Angeles. She was seen exiting the terminal in a bomber jacket, white shirt, and a pleated midi skirt by Misha Nonoo. Whether her visit to the West Coast was for a business trip or personal remains unknown. But, we do know what she did after she landed.

You might have expected a personal driver to whisk the princess away to her destination, but nope, the royal pulled out her Uber app and called herself a car—a Lexus Hybrid to be exact. We had so many questions: Does the princess frequently use Uber in London? What's her Uber rating? Does she ever pool?

If the royal wanted to arrive to LA undetected, Uber probably is a good choice. After all, having your driver hold a white sign that says "Princess Beatrice of York," can cause quite the commotion. It seems photographers, however, recognized her anyways and snapped a few photos before she hopped into her Uber. The princess, of course, waved to everyone like it was no big deal.

This uber-exciting news (see what I did there?) comes after reports that Beatrice is dating multi-millionaire Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, a property developer and CEO of Banda. She reportedly introduced him as her boyfriend at a party in London last week and he has already met her parents, the Duke and Duchess of York.
