Princess Beatrice was reportedly seen eating at a popular vegan restaurant in central London. According to commentator Richard Eden, the elder sister of Princess Eugenie was trying plant-based food at 123V restaurant on Bond Street.
And, according to a restaurant source, the royal was particularly keen on the vegan sushi on the menu.
The insider told the Daily Mail diary editor: “She was telling staff she wanted to eat the vegan sushi on offer, because she is trying to move to a plant-based diet.
“The princess says the hardest thing to give up is sushi, so was pleased the vegan offering is almost as good as the real thing.”
Approached by Express.co.uk, Buckingham Palace did not comment.
This isn’t the first time it is reported Beatrice is getting closer to a plant-based lifestyle.
Ahead of turning 31 in 2019, the Mail on Sunday claimed the princess had sought the help of caterers The Admirable Crichton to create a three-course fully vegan dinner menu for her birthday party.
Beatrice wouldn’t be the first member of the Royal Family to choose to eat fewer animal-based products.
Three years before marrying Prince Harry, Meghan Markle – then an actress in the popular legal drama Suits – told Best Health: “I try to eat vegan during the week and then have a little bit more flexibility with what I dig into on the weekends.
“But at the same time, it’s all about balance.

“Because I work out the way I do, I don’t ever want to feel deprived.
“I feel that the second you do that is when you start to binge on things.
“It’s not a diet; it’s lifestyle eating.”
More recently, Prince Charles revealed he avoids eating meat or dairy products on certain days in a bid to cut his environmental footprint.
In an interview with the BBC, he said: “I haven’t eaten meat and fish on two days a week and I don’t eat dairy products on one day a week.”
The Prince of Wales said this was just “one way” to help.
But, urging others to follow his example, he added “if more did that you would reduce a lot of the pressure.”
Princess Beatrice reportedly headed to the vegan restaurant with her daughter Sienna.
The baby was born in mid-September at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.
Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi announced the full name, believed to give a nod to both the property developer’s Italian roots and the Queen, of the tot two weeks later.
Princess Beatrice and Edoardo have chosen against releasing a picture of their newborn baby for the time being.
In lieu of a photograph, they have shared a snap of the footprints of the baby taken on the day she was born.
Sienna was born 11th-in-line to the throne, immediately after her mother and grandfather Prince Andrew.
The baby is also the 12th great-grandchild of the Queen – and the second born following the death of Prince Philip in April.
This weekend will mark Beatrice’s first Christmas as both a parent and an aunt, after her beloved sister also gave birth to a baby, August, in February.
