Princess Beatrice is renowned for her jet-set lifestyle but this latest jaunt to Ibiza might be the most glamorous yet!

The 26-year-old was spotted relaxing with boyfriend Dave Clark on Russian billionaire and owner of Chelsea Soccer Club in the UK, Roman Abramovich‘s £1.5billion superyacht Eclipse.

It is the second largest yacht in the world, just behind megayacht Azzam. Superyacht Eclipse is an enormous 532ft (162m) long – which is about the length of one and a half football fields!

The amazing boat can accommodate 36 people along with 70, yes 70 crew members (that’s a ratio of almost two to one!) and has three helipads, a 16m long swimming pool, a Jacuzzi and even an elevator!


And if this wasn’t luxury enough, the daughter of HRH Price Andrew (third child of Queen Elizabeth II) and Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson was invited on board another stunning superyacht, Rising Sun – owned by movie and music mogul David Geffen!  She is thought to have been invited for drinks with Oprah Winfrey, her best friend Gayle King, and Disney CEO Bob Iger.

Princess Beatrice is quite the seasoned traveller especially since she gave up her £20,000-a-year job at Sony last year. She has been spotted taking numerous breaks including three skiing breaks to her parents’ £13million chalet in Verbier , two trips to St Barts in the Caribbean, two trips to New York and two to Italy. And if that wasn’t enough, she has also been to Greece, Florida, Bahrain, the Bahamas, China and the United Arab Emirates. The life of a princess eh?

While it has been reported that Beatrice moved to New York three weeks ago to start work with a private equity firm, she turned up on Thursday on Roman Abramovich’s superyacht which was sailing near the Spanish island.

We wonder if she arrived by helicopter?!

Her boyfriend Dave Clark was apparently already on board waiting for her to arrive and they looked as though they were having a great time on board – with Dave taking some time out to enjoy one of the water toys!

Later on that day, she enjoyed the company of Oprah Winfrey who was on board with her friend, Gayle King. The princess’ mother, the Duchess of York, had a six-part documentary series about her ‘personal battle to rebuild her life’ aired on Winfrey’s OWN network in 2011.

The group were pictured on the Rising Sun, which has a wine cellar, movie theatre and a basketball court. Oprah also spent the summer of 2013 on board the boat – friends in high places…
