I, too, used to be critical of her fashion sense, but on second thought, she is not a very attractive woman, but she lives her life quietly and well. She works very hard and has raised too lovely children. We all can't be beautiful. She could have had plastic surgery and all the help in the world, but she does not seem to be vain and has a good head on her shoulders. She should be praised for all her good efforts.

I simply don't understand why she doesn't advertise herself more. New hair do, softer make up ( or perhaps she doesn't wear that much) new line of clothing. Even her Mother has brought up her appearance 100% in the past few years. The Queen is truly looking well turned out and has gotten rid of those prints she wore for years.. IMO of course:)

Hi . Just reading your post after I sent mine. I tend to disagree with you view on her looks. She always looks stern, unhappy, a little miserable even, but when she was younger she had a nice quality about her appearance and looks. She has the best figure of any of the royals and has kept it through her exercise of riding etc..Take a look at some back pictures of her, when in her teens and 20's. She could look much more like that if she wanted to.

I think that she's very much the beautiful lady the public school boys adore. Matronly without the flab. I think she is attractive actually and her fashion sense is a little out of place but her clothes were nice when they were first worn. Now they're a little old fashioned. I think that she had the best wedding dress of all the brides, rivalled only by Camilla's blessing outfit.

Solo round the world yachtswoman Dee Caffari revieves the Trophy from HRH Princess Anne in torrential rain at Ocean Village on May 21, 2006 in Southampton, England. She is the first woman to sail solo around the world against the wind and tide.

Princess Anne (under umbrella) takes the salute of The Royal Scots battalion as they parade for the last time through Edinburgh, Scotland May 26, 2006. The Royal Scots, whose history dates back 373 years, are to merge with the Kings Own Scottish Borderers on Friday to form part of the Royal Regiment of Scotland

Proud Royal Scots march into history

THE proud 373-year reign of the Royal Scots was laid to rest today as crowds lined Princes Street to bid Edinburgh's regiment an emotional farewell.

Regarding her wardrobe and appearance, I agree with the post stating that Pss Anne dresses for the occasion. I've seen photographs of her in formal attaire where she looked lovely. She appears to me to be a no-nonsense kind of person who is probably much more at home in jeans and mud boots. Her strong affiliation with horse events allows for that. Having been born a royal (rather than having married into it) she strikes me as a realist who understands that being a princess isn't all about what you wear and how you look. I have the utmost respect for her. I think alot of people do.

The hat is not that bad. She basically has no fashion sense, but I don't think she really cares. She is a no nonsense person, but genuine. What you see is what you get. She is not a phony as some in the family. She works hard and does not whine. I used to have a different opinion of her, but I have come to admire her. She doesn't worry what she has on, because her job is more important that her picture.

Of course she´s a hard worker inside the Royal House..nobody can deny the quality of her duties and maybe her way of acting..but definitely her clothing sometimes is out of this world:p

I think once one settles into marriage she needed less of an effort to keep him. So I think she's settled into who she is and doesn't want to pretend to be someone else. Which is cool. On the other hand her husband is rather attractive I would put forth a LITTLE more effort. But they've been married this long no need to pull out the curlers and makeup now LOL
