The Queen’s granddaughter gave the heartwarming insight at a virtual event on March 31 – her most recent engagement before Prince Philip’s death. The Duke of Edinburgh died on Friday aged 99 at Windsor Castle.

During the event last month, Princess Beatrice announced her patronage with the non-profit organisation 20:40.

The organisation aims to help young people work on socio-economic issues.

The princess was asked to share some advice to young future leaders during the virtual event.

She recalled how Prince Philip had given her a valuable life lesson to focus on what you are trying to achieve.

Princess Beatrice said: “One of the things that I’ve always been inspired by is keeping your curiosity and don’t be afraid to un-think and un-learn.

“But also don’t feel like you have to have all the answers yourself, one of the things that has always helped me, and this actually is inspired by my grandfather, whose turning 100 this year, but you kind of become obsessed with solving the problem, don’t become obsessed with the solution.

“Because your route to actually finding a way to get through that problem will be different and the path will be different, and it might twist and turn.

“So don’t be disheartened if your first path is not the one you think you have to stick to.

“Keep focusing on what you’re trying to achieve and you’ll get there.”

She added: “My second piece of advice is be curious but find the best ways to collaborate and learn the best things that you can along the way, you’re not alone.”

Prince Philip is the longest-serving royal consort in British history.

On Saturday, the Palace announced that the Duke’s funeral will take place on April 17 in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, only 30 people will be allowed to attend the funeral which will be televised.

Prince Harry is expected to return to the UK from America to attend the event alongside his family and grandmother the Queen.

The Duke of Sussex’s pregnant wife, Meghan Markle, will not be attending after receiving medical advice not take the trip.
