According to Boutell's Heraldry, the labels for both Prince Andrew and Princess Anne were assigned by Royal Warrant 7 July 1962.

"British Flags & Emblems" by Graham Bartram states that the Princess Royal, the Duke of York and the Earl of Wessex have their own standards for use in Scotland, using the Scottish version of the royal arms with labels of cadency.

Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie

Wikipedia reports standards for Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie:

Beatrice - "The first, middle, and last points each bear a bee, while the second and fourth points are blank." -

Eugenie - "The first, middle, and last points each bear a thistle head, while the second and fourth points are blank." -
"cook876", 10 July 2011

These two standards may be a mistake. Although Beatrice and Eugenie appear to have been granted arms, I can find no reference to their standards other than in Wikipedia . They are not on Graham Bartramís World Flag Database. The contributor to Wikipedia may have assumed that all variations of the royal arms have a similar variation of the royal standard. This does not necessarily follow.
