Beatrice’s VERY eclectic holiday crew: Princess jets to Jordan with Karlie Kloss, Ellie Goulding, Meghan’s pal Misha Nonoo and Ivanka Trump’s brother-in-law (with the Crown Prince as a tour guide!)
- Social media snaps capture Duke and Duchess of York’s daughter in Jordan
- Joined on holiday by star-studded pals including Ellie Goulding and Karlie Kloss
- Ellie and Karlie’s respective partners Caspar Jopling and Joshua Kushner joined
- Heir apparent to Jordan’s throne Crown Prince Hussein seen with the group
While her younger sister paid a visit to Kensington Palace to visit their cousin William’s new baby this week, Princess Beatrice was enjoying an exotic getaway with a star-studded group of pals.
Social media snaps taken on Tuesday show the 29-year-old royal in the desert in Jordan with a gang that includes the supermodel Karlie Kloss, her boyfriend Joshua Kushner – brother-in-law of Ivanka Trump – the pop star Ellie Goulding, and Meghan Markle’s friend Misha Nonoo.
The blonde fashion designer and ex-wife of Old Etonian Alexander Gilkes – who in the early days of Prince Harry and Meghan’s romance was hotly rumoured to be the matchmaker that set them up – posted snippets from the holiday on her Instagram that show the high profile gang enjoying camel rides, quad biking, and an impromptu acoustic performance from Goulding.
The pop singer’s boyfriend, Old Etonian and Team GB rower Caspar Jopling, can also be seen in a group shot at Wadi Rum shared by Nonoo, as can American actress Nora Kirkpatrick and her husband, the filmmaker Bryn Mooser.
It was a fourth international trip in the space of three months for the jet-set Princess, who was snapped enjoying a dinner date in LA with British businessman and fitness guru James William in February, dropped in on a tech conference in Barcelona in March, and joined guests including Kate Moss at the wedding of Alessandra de Osma to Prince Christian of Hanover in Peru less than a month ago.
Read on for who is who in Beatrice’s holiday crew…
Beatrice’s holiday crew at Wadi Rum in Jordan: (1) Old Etonian and team GB rower Caspar Jopling; (2) his girlfriend, the pop star Ellie Goulding; (3) fashion designer and friend of Meghan Markle Misha Nonoo; (4) supermodel Karlie Kloss; (5) US actress and comedian Nora Kirkpatrick; (6) Kirkpatrick’s husband, the American filmmaker Bryn Mooser; (7) Joshua Kushner, Kloss’ boyfriend and brother-in-law of Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka; (8) Princess Beatrice; (9) Hussein, Crown Prince of Jordan
The fashion designer’s profile rocketed when her friend Meghan Markle wore her Husband shirt for her first public appearance with then boyfriend Prince Harry at the Invictus Games in Toronto, but Bahrain-born Nonoo was already firmly ensconced in society circles.
She’s the former wife of Alexander Gilkes, who attended Eton with Princes William and Harry. Guests at their nuptials included Princess Beatrice and her younger sister Eugenie, and Kate Middleton’s brother James.
Princess Beatrice attended a WE Day event in March wearing a skirt from her friend’s fashion line, which also includes a black polo neck called ‘Beatrice’ – perhaps in a nod to her royal pal.
Prince Hussein of Jordan
The 23-year-old Crown Prince of Jordan is the eldest son of King Abdullah II and Queen Rania, and heir apparent to the throne. He appears to have acted as tour guide to the high-profile gang of friends during their stint in Jordan, having previously popped up on Joshua Kushner’s social media snaps from the trip.
The supermodel Karlie Kloss is dating Joshua Kushner, whose brother Jared is married to President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka. In 2016, she and Princess Beatrice both took in the Mens US Open final from the VIP box. Ivanka Trump was also there.
Kloss’ long-term boyfriend and brother of Donald Trump’s senior advisor and son-in-law, Jared Kushner. The 32-year-old businessman is the founder of Thrive Capital, and has been in a relationship with the supermodel since 2012.
Believed to be a former flame of Prince Harry, the 31-year-old British pop star’s links to the royal family are well known. She performed at Kate and William’s wedding reception in 2011, and her boyfriend Caspar Jopling went to Eton – Harry and William’s old school.
Ellie Goulding’s 24-year-old boyfriend is an old Etonian and Team GB rower. The couple, who have been seeing one another for around a year, are said to be keeping things casual, but appear very cosy in the group shot taken at Wadi Rum.
American actress and comedian Nora Kirkpatrick starred in the US version of The Office and the TV series Greek.
Married to Kirkpatrick, LA-born Mooser is a two-time Oscar-nominated filmmaker, as well as a humanitarian credited with helping to build the largest cholera centre in Haiti.

While Beatrice was on her desert getaway, her relatives were having an eventful week in Britain. On Monday, the day before the Princess’ trip to Wadi Rum, her cousin Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge welcomed their third child, a baby boy, Prince Louis.
Beatrice’ younger sister Eugenie, who will wed Jack Brooksbank at Windsor Castle in the autumn, was snapped driving up to the gates of Kensington Palace to meet the new arrival on Tuesday, hot on the heels of Kate’s mother Carole and sister Pippa.
Meanwhile it was confirmed that Prince Harry has asked William to be his best man when he exhanges vows with Meghan Markle on May 19th.
