Amazing to be able to wear a dress from 27 years ago but she is an athlete and lives on a working farm so she has had and maintained the most amazing and healthy figure of any royal woman.

That being said: She looked awful in the dress at Lady Rose's wedding because the dress hasn't remained quite as opaque. Silk doesn't hold up and deterioates...and the dress looks limp where the ruffles should look perky.

The hat was beyond awful. It looked like a Range Rover had run over it and they tried to fluff it out. Fresh hats and headwear is a must.

All in all, Princess Anne is a sensible woman which is always refreshing.
She never looked more elegant and beautiful than her 50th birthday portrait.
Oh, and let's hope the dress doesn't bring the newly married couple the same bad luck as Charles and Diana!

She is so beautiful when she smiles! I wish we could see her do more of it.

Thank you for all the wonderful pictures iceflower! Anne's got sense, she knew to cover her mouth so the media couldn't get a lip reader in!

Gatecombe is hosting another horse show this coming weekend. Due to waterlogging at this weekend's planned show at Highclere, Gatecombe might go extra day.

Princess Anne riding in Gloucestershire, Britain - 29 Aug 2008

The first pic is very nice, on the second one it looks like she
was wondering how to come back down

My goodness, she's smiling at the camera! That must have been a mistake.

Just checking to make sure the horse is sound. It may have been limping.

And she has a beautiful smile -- she should certainly do it more often. She even looks almost pretty. Maybe it is that we don't see her hair style. I would love to have her go to a "make over" stylist and have a really pretty style done. I know she would look remarkable.

Could not agree more that smiley Anne looks lovely in the pictures in posts 51 & 52! Its amazing what a smile can achieve - one would hope to se more pictures of her smiling.

And yes, as somebody suggested, a makeover of sorts for Anne would not go amiss!

She's a pretty no-nonsense kinda gal (which is why I like her) she may not have the patience for a make over. . . .

Anne would soon sort out the likes of Trinny and Susannah.

Anne knows what she likes and what she is comfortable in, it may not be what others like, but that is what self confidence does for you!
