The members of the British royal family, Princess Beatrice of York, left, and Princess Eugenie of York, right, pose for the media during a promotion event for the Great Britain MINI Tour 2013 at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, Germany, Thursday, Jan. 17, 2013. It was meant to be a Mini adventure that nearly became a major embarrassment. Two British royals on a mission to promote their country broke German road rules by running a red light near Berlin's iconic Brandenburg Gate. With photographers and police in tow, Princess Eugenie and her older sister Princess Beatrice then took a swift right into the safety of the British embassy compound. At least the 22 and 24-year-old sisters didn't have to decide which side of the road to drive on. The entire 500-meter (550-yard) staged tour was along one-way streets (AP Photo/Michael Sohn)
