Charity to play Bea in film about dad’s car-crash interview


PRINCESS BEATRICE would no doubt like to forget the part she played in her father’s career- ending interview with Emily Maitlis. But Charity Wakefield (main picture) is to make sure that her role is immortalis­ed on screen.

The talented actress, 42, is to play Prince Andrew’s elder daughter, 34 (inset), in a Netflix film about the Buckingham Palace encounter.

‘I have the honour of playing HRH Princess Beatrice alongside a, quite frankly, frightenin­gly good cast,’ confirms Sussex-born Wakefield.

Producer Sam McAlister, on whose book the film is based, has said she was caught off-guard when Bea joined them. ‘[Andrew] said, “Oh, by the way, I’ve brought someone with me.”

‘I didn’t buckle because she was the rainmaker, in my view. She was the difference between yes and no, so I was really attentive to her. She was just looking after her dad.’
