Could Princess Beatrice get engaged soon? If she does, she'll no longer need to ask the Queen for permission!

According to the Daily Telegraph, 26-year-old Beatrice can enjoy a little more freedom after the birth of Princess Charlotte moved her down the line of succession from sixth to seventh.

The Succession of the Crown act requires the six members of the royal family nearest in line to the throne to receive the Queen's consent before marrying. Now that Charlotte has been born, Beatrice will no longer have to ask her grandmother's permission to marry.

Beatrice has been dating her boyfriend Dave Clark, 31, for the past seven years. Engagement rumors spark from time to time, most recently this January when Dave was rumored to have proposed to Beatrice on their New Year's holiday in St. Barts.

The couple is still going strong but there is no engagement ring in sight. Page Six writes that Beatrice and Dave were recently spotted taking a 60-minute class at Barry's Bootcamp Chelsea in New York before taking an Uber home.
