Princess Anne Hosts Veterans Garden Party In The Queen’s Absence

Princess Anne will be attending the Royal Windsor Horse Show tonight to watch the Platinum Competition in celebration of the Queen’s Jubilee. The Princess Royal will join the audience on the grounds of Windsor Castle to witness a dazzling theatrical re-enactment of royal history. 1,500 artists, 500 horses and a crew of celebrities, including Ant and Dec, Dame Helen Mirren and Tom Cruise, will be in the ring for 90 minutes.

As a former professional horse rider, Ann is expected to embrace the competition.

While the Princess Royal is now best known for her commitment to her role as a working royal, she was previously recognized as a royal champ in dressage.

The Princess made her public competition debut at the age of 11, was the first Royal to take part in the Olympic Games and even participated in the Royal Windsor Horse Show.

However, Anne had to prematurely give up her equestrian career in order to devote her entire time to her public duties.

Now 71 years old, she has established herself as a loyal member of the royal family and has been awarded the ‘Most Serious Royal Work’ Medal.

Over the decades of public outings, Anne has also been praised for her timeless and elegant style.

Samantha Harman, fashion expert and personal stylist, praised the princess as “one of the most underrated members of the royal family when it comes to style”.

Like her mom, Anne doesn’t feel the need to make a big splash when it comes to her fashion choices, instead opting for classic silhouettes, monochromatic outfits, and sensible footwear.

She deals with fashion the same way she does her royal duties, not flashy but determined to do everything right.

Ms Harmont said: “Princess Anne is perhaps one of the most underrated members of the royal family when it comes to style.

“Sometimes we can look back through archives in a celebrity’s wardrobe and think ‘Wow! Their style has changed so much.'” But Anne’s style is “classic Anne.”

“There hasn’t been some major ‘change’ or ‘change’ in her style over the past 50 years – you can see that this is the same woman, and she has a strong sense of who she is.

“There are a lot of elements in her clothing that transcend times and trends, from the ’70s until today.”

While the personal stylist claimed Anne is “a fine example of someone who re-wears items, and buys classic shapes,” she also said that the princess is “not afraid to try new things.”

In December, the Princess Royal stepped out with knee-high tassel boots, an especially recent pick for veteran royals.

Ms Harman commented on her appearance, saying: “Considering that she is 71 years old, it is great to see that Princess Anne is not afraid to try new trends or looks.

“We usually expect to see her in a riding shoe, so the rim is an interesting touch.

“A lot of women get caught up in the idea that you should stick to the same things as you get older, but that’s not true at all.

“I think this is a great example of how to incorporate something new into your look.

“Take your classics—the coat has been in Ann’s wardrobe for several years—and add a new accessory or little touch.

“The look is still Anne’s signature but it shows her personality.”

As a proud clothing repeater, Anne had a sustainable approach to style long before sustainability became a buzzword in fashion.

The Princess Royal was recently photographed wearing the same dress more than once during her royal tour of Australia and Papua New Guinea to celebrate the Queen’s platinum jubilee.

Anne wore her double-breasted navy jacket twice in one week, an unprecedented move in the world of Royal Tours, especially when it came to female members of the company.

Just weeks ago, Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, staged a week-long fashion show during her tour with Prince William of the Caribbean, with a wardrobe meticulously thought out not only to deliver elegance but also to meet the demands and social policies of the occasion.

Ms. Harman advised to “take a leaf out of Anne’s book” by recycling past clothes.

She said, “Over the past decade or so, our consumption of fashion has accelerated to insane levels.

“We now buy five times as many clothes as we did in the ’80s.

For a while, it was ‘not cool’ to re-wear things, and we could order a new dress with the click of a button for a few pounds.

“But, I think we can all take a leaf out of Anne’s book and take care of our clothes and put them back on.”
