I was very excited last night - through my job I do occasionally get invited to posh dos, and I was at one last night with Princess Anne - and I was put on the list to be introduced to her! We chatted fairly innocuously about volunteering, but I wanted to touch her to check she was real. Of course I wanted to make her over, but we'll let that one go. Anyways, she seemed incredibly down to earth, and very very knowledgeable about the charity sector (where I work) with a depth of understanding that many people in the sector do not have. Anyway, I have achieved a goal, and at last have met a Royal! Hurrah!

The Queen might be off to Windsor, or she might be at the Palace, but doing other of her schedules. But as i have explained earlier on, the Investitures have been divided, so Prince Charles and Princess Anne sometimes stand in, and give the Queen a hand.

Congratulations, James. I might have an opportunity to stumble across Norwegian royals but otherwise it's not likely in the Midwest, unless you're in Chicago.

Well done, James! Down-to-earth are words that are often used to describe The Princess Royal.

However, the 30-year-old said she hopes to be able to accept a separate offer from the Princess Royal to visit her home, Gatcombe Park in Gloucestershire, to take tea and watch polo

Oh, to be a fly on the wall during that meeting! An odd pairing of people, IMO

yes, jordan is the person i would least expect to meet the princess royal. oh well, life has strange things, i guess. i wonder if it was true that anne invited her to her house or if what she meant is that she would like to be invited. it sounds to me most odd. is katie actually a good horsewoman?

The Princess Royal endeavoured to bring a touch of summer to the Easter gathering at Windsor Castle, opting for a choice of headgear that stuck an incongruous note with the dismal skies overhead.

apparently she is a decent rider and has written a book on pony care which was slated by experts for being basic but commended by vets and animal welfare groups for being a practical beginners guide with very good advice for the new pony owner. (I havent read it) I did see an interview with Jordan?Katie? where she talked about it cant remember where.

see, that's one reason why I like Anne...she is brave and has a great self-confidence^^. That makes her cute in some ways.
while taking about cute, look at that picture. Isn't it kind of cute?
