Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie are adopting a "business as usual" approach to Netflix's explosive new Prince Andrew/Jeffrey Epstein film, Scoop. The movie tells a fictionalized account of the events leading up to, during, and after the Duke of York's "trainwreck" 2019 interview with Newnight's Emily Maitlis.

"Beatrice and Eugenie will communicate through their clothes that it is 'business as usual' as the new Netflix film about Prince Andrew comes out," style expert Marian Kwei dished.

Rufus Sewell and Colin Wells as Prince Andrew and Jeffrey Epstein, respectively, in Netflix's 2024 film, 'Scoop.'

"They will also state with their style that they are just like everyday people and want to be seen as being 'relatable' to the public and in touch with the times," she added. "We saw this when Princess Eugenie chose to wear a short black satin Me + Em dress accessorized with a cardigan and vegan Loci trainers at the Hong Kong convention center."

She continued: "The vegan trainers were in keeping with current non-leather trainer trends, showing that the royals are in touch with the times with issues such as sustainability. The dress and cardigan combination implies she is just like one of us. It will be important at this time to be seen engaged with the public and at work."

Apart from the York princesses' statement-oriented fashion past choices, the movie is starting to make headlines. The film features Beatrice in a supporting role played by actress Charity Wakefield, with Gillian Anderson as Maitlis, Rufus Sewell as the Duke of York and Colin Wells as Epstein.

Princess Beatrice reportedly aided her father, Prince Andrew, in prepping for the 'Newsnight' interview in late 2019.

"Rammed into a tiny room in Buckingham Palace, the three Newsnighters (me, Emily and Deputy Editor Stewart) faced Andrew, Amanda and a very unexpected guest — his elder daughter, Princess Beatrice," author Sam McAlister revealed.

"She was dressed in navy blue, asked sensible questions about the possible logistics, and it was clear, she was close to her father and concerned for his welfare," she added. The discussion was frank, firm, sometimes funny."

McAlister writes about the infamous interview in her new book, Scoops: Behind the Scenes, which was turned into the film. The interview led Queen Elizabeth II to banish her son from public view, and it was later revealed that she worked with Prince William on crafting a response to the controversy.

In his late 2023 book, Endgame, author Omid Scobie revealed that the then-Duke of Cambridge personally visited Queen Elizabeth II in 2021 to discuss the Duke of York. The future king did this as he thought she may go too "soft" on her favorite son, who William felt "can still inflict considerable damage to the monarchy."

As for Princess Beatrice, she and her sister, Princess Eugenie, have lived their lives unaffected since their father's Jeffrey Epstein-tied scandals first appeared.

"How could an interview that aimed to provide answers for vulnerable young women not end up hurting other vulnerable young women – his daughters – along the way?" Maitlis once wrote before adding: "These were things I struggled with in the aftermath that still cost me a fair amount of thought today."
