Last week, the world watched as the new royal baby, Prince Louis, made his grand debut in London. While members of the baby's family flocked to Kensington Palace to meet the newborn, one British royal was notably absent from the royal baby bonanza: Princess Beatrice.

The 29-year-old Princess was spotted on vacation in Jordan's Wadi Rum Desert with surprisingly A-list group of travelers. The royal was photographed with model and entrepreneur Karlie Kloss along with her boyfriend, Joshua Kushner (the brother of that other J. Kushner), designer and Meghan Markle's bestie Misha Nonoo, and singer Ellie Goulding.

Most of the attendees posted photos of the trip on social media, giving us an inside glance at the luxurious desert vacation. Kloss shared a photo with Kushner on Instagram, with the sweet caption "My ride or die ??"

The model also shared a photo with Ellie Goulding, showing the two on dirt bikes:

Princess Beatrice's low-key attendance on the trip was only confirmed in additional photos, including a group shot where Beatrice posed in the front next to Kushner:

Beatrice wasn't the only royal on the vacation: Prince Hussein of Jordan was reportedly hosting the group. The heir apparent to the throne of Jordan was spotted in Nonoo's Instagram story, according to W Magazine. While the Prince himself hasn't confirmed his attendance, he did post a solo shot on his Instagram feed from very similar-looking Wadi Rumi camping trip.

The collection of A-listers may seem random, but a little digging reveals the group's layers of royal connections. Goulding is friendly with the royal family (she performed at Will and Kate's 2011 nuptials), and Nonoo is one of the rumored matchmakers between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Kloss and Princess Beatrice have been friends for a number of years. Back in 2016, they were spotted together in a box at the U.S. Open in New York, where they were seated with Jared Kushner:

Other than the flurry of Instagram posts, guests have refrained from revealing details about the trip. We can expect to see Princess Beatrice at Harry and Meghan's royal wedding in a few weeks, where Markle's friend Nonoo may also be in attendance.
