Saskatchewan Lieutenant Governor Gordon Barnhart,left, greets Princess Anne at the airport as she arrives in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, on Friday, June 1, 2007. The Princess is on a trip to help celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Royal Regina Rifles in which she is the Colonel-in-Chief of the regiment.

You are welcome as always, Skydragon and Avalon ,and what you've both said about her clothes is what I had
thought as well when posting
I think I HAVE seen her wearing similar things like these before, and it always makes me smile, but in a positive
way, she has her special "Anne style" and that makes her very likable in my eyes, even if I would never ever
wear these clothes myself

What on earth has she done to her hair? She needs a new hair dresser right away. Or at least some heavy duty conditioner!

Thank you for the picture and article. Although a little bright for my taste, the colour and fit suits her and as a result, she looks sensational!

I love the outfit but it's very very 80s, especially the hat. I wonder if Her Royal Highness will ever get rid of the shoulder pads?

Shoulder pads have been out of fashion since that Dynasty-fuelled come back in the 80s. I actually have a friend who sews them into her clothes and I tell her all the time, "Take them out, you look like a bloke". Not that I'm suggesting Princess Anne looks like a man, but the shoulder pad era is definately over. They suited Joan Crawford, they don't suit Anne.

This is hilarious. Anne is a classic example of a royal set in her ways, this is what she's always worn, how she's always done it, it works, leave her alone! She won't hear any word about it from anyone -- not the staff, not you or you or even her children -- especially not her children! Here is my theory on Anne getting ready for an engagement:

"Ok, I've got my shoes -- they fit, I can walk in them, they don't look too worn, do they? Right, all set. Purse -- big enough to carry all the essentials? Does it match the shoes, the skirt? Good then, now, the hair.... brush it through, pin it up, jolly good then, let's roll!"

BeatrixFan, I meant to tell you, I love your new avatar. That color on Camilla is ravishing.

That's exactly how I imagined Anne to prepare for an engagement. She doesn't seem at all vain which is most endearing.

Thanks for the avatar compliment - I agree with you, the colour is gorge.

I don't think they are completely out of fashion, my new trouser suit has them, although not as padded as they were in the 80's. They help retain the shape and drape of the jacket.

Fashionable or not, I thought Anne looked really smart.

Well, as long as she doesn't start going for Imelda Marcos shoulders I suppose we should be thankful for small mercies.

Poor Anne, she is probably like the majority of us, although the fall probably hurt her physically, the embarrassment hurt more!

I hope she is not too sore today and I hope the official has learned a valuable lesson in how not to grab a female!

You always feel bad when someone falls, but for the Royals it is so bad. I hope that she is not hurt.
