Princess Beatrice

Britain's Princess Beatrice has struck a friendship with Justin Bieber's manager.

The 24-year-old royal - who is the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah, the Duchess of York - was spotted talking and taking pictures with the 'Baby' singer's manager, Scooter Braun, at Coachella musical festival in California last weekend.

Beatrice, who was with her American boyfriend Dave Clark and a group of seven friends, took a break from the musical performances to relax in the exclusive VIP zone where she spent some time talking to the music manager and enjoyed margaritas with her friends.

A source told Australian publication The Age: "They ordered two each and he [Clark] paid. She was so polite and softly spoken."

The royal is said to have particularly enjoyed performances from British rockers The xx at Coachella, a sold out music festival that saw musical acts such as Blur, the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and more take the stage.

Beatrice has been dating Dave, 30, since 2006 when they were introduced by Prince William, who is Beatrice's cousin and friends with the businessman.

The young royal was recently named the new royal patron of the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre charity following her own learning difficulties as a child.
