Take out Mark Philips and it would look like a romance novel cover. I wonder what Anne thought of the pix considering she tends not to care how she looks.

Engagement photograph so it probably did matter at the time as it was them as a couple.

She did care then - you can tell by the official photographs and also, IMO, by the fact she had a professional make-up artist for her wedding

In the photo of a young Anne and Mark Philips, Anne looks very elegant, IMO. She looked nice when she had long hair (I’m not saying that she doesn’t look nice now! ) Mark also reminds me a bit of the Viscount Linley. Thanks for posting!

I remember this as one of 3/4 pictures taken prior to the wedding - by either Norman PArkinson or Snowdon.

The story went that when they originally posed in the long gallery at BP, the white dress she was wearing wasn't full enough - so she went and put another one on top. That's why the sleeves and neckline look slightly odd.

She's just my age there! (I'm 22, turning 23 at the end of July.)

Here is the one in the long gallery - and she is wearing 2 dresses. And I love the other one in the long grass - very romantic

I still love her 1985 interview with Terry Wogan. She looks so nice in her white blouse and long gray skirt, and her hair down past her shoulder blades! A real sight to see!

This is quite recent - but I had not seen it. It's from the RBS Six Nations and the Princess Royal has on a lovely expression. http://www2.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/P...KKU-L7oxnx.jpg

The picture of the Queen adjusting Anne's train reminds me of my dad at my parents' wedding. It was the third week of August 1976, and my mom was a few minutes late (she was having trouble with her veil). My dad was sitting in the front pew of the church, and the back of his shirt collar was sticking up. My grandma reached over and adjusted it, and my grandpa said to her, "Leave the boy alone!" They'll soon be married 37 years!

In 1984 Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles moved the christening of Prince Henry from Buckingham Palace to St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle so it would be closer to Princess Anne's estate.
This was done so that Anne might change her mind and attend her nephew's christening.
She had previously declined to attend the christening.
Even though Henry's christening would be held in St. George's Chapel, Princess Anne, for a second time, declined to attend.

Certainly Princess Anne had a right to be disappointed.
She had not been selected to be a godmother of either Prince William or Prince Henry.

The tabs really did try to drive a wedge between Diana and Anne back in the day. In recent years the tabloids have tried to do this with Catherine and Beatrice & Eugenie and imagine how it will be with Catherine and Harry's future wife.

When Princess Anne was asked how it felt to have Buckingham Palace as a private property, she shrugged.
"Don't know," she said. "It's not private property. The Palace belongs to the Crown."

Yes, whichever way you slice or dice it, it does seem as if this feud is intergenerational. How sad!

Anne is definitely keeping her distance here.

http://news.bbcimg.co.uk/media/image...al_2008_ap.jpg

Both Anne and Harry are obviously very uncomfortable here.

Oh dear, things just really can't get much worse!
