I believe it would entirely depend upon context. She'd probably be very gracious if you did that while she was at a royal engagement, but probably would find it inappropriate if you approached her in a public restroom and curtsied.

A changing room probably isn't the best place for observing formalities and introducing oneself :)

I see your point!

Princess Anne's Favorite Teddy Bear

This happened a couple of months ago:

Princess Annes favourite teddy loses fight with her dog | UK News | Express.co.uk - Home of the Daily and Sunday Express


"She is admired for her devotion to duty rather than her sensitivity. Yet now the 61-year-old royal has shown her softer side by being left mortified when her dogs got hold of her most treasured possession, a threadbare teddy bear given to her by her mother when she was two. A source said: The Queen gave Anne the cuddly toy when she acceded the throne in 1952 and the Princess has treasured it ever since."


How sweet! My heart just melted when I read this! To be 62 and be so emotionally attached to something you've had since you were 18 months old? I love it that Anne still has that inner child in her.

The goddess of the green... or the fat slag (heap)? Divisive 1,300ft woman landscape sculpture seen from the ground for first time | Mail Online

"Variously nicknamed Big Bird, Jordan and even ‘Slag Alice’, she hasn’t quite convinced the locals yet. But the designers behind Northumberlandia, an enormous sculpture of a naked woman carved into the landscape from the waste of a former coalmine, hope tourists will be rather more enthusiastic when it opens to the public tomorrow. The 1,300ft artwork at Cramlington, also known officially as the Lady of the North, is the largest of its kind in the world. Taller than an eight-storey building at its highest point, it cost 3million and took two years to build."

My mom told me this morning that Princess Anne is a hands-on kind of girl; she'd rather be out doing things than sitting at a desk all day. She's also not seeking too much attention and being hounded by the press like Diana. She's very smart! I think that's what I like about her; not to mention that she's a real sweetie to boot! And just look at those eyes in the picture of her at the lectern!

You can hardly justify the sentence 'sitting at a desk all day like her mother'. The Queen, at 86, has to be one of the hardest working monarchs I've seen.

On September 11 Princess Anne attended a Thanksgiving Service and reception to mark The Queen's Diamond Jubilee in Melrose Parish Church, Melrose and as Patron of the Jubilee Woods Project later visited the Glen, Innerleithen, Peeblesshire, to mark the planting of the Diamond Wood.

Nice photos - she is surprisingly fit for a woman of her age and "employment." She also very at ease on these single engagements. I find more and more about her that I like. She is not at all how she has been represented in the US press.

Not that she gives a hoot what I think - and that's all to the better, as well.

62 years old and still wears a size 10 - Now there's a woman! She's beautiful and funny and intelligent and tough and she's smart enough to avoid being sucked into the press. She and I are a lot alike!

She's not smart enough, the press don't bother with Anne because she's not that interesting. I don't see how you can tell she's a size 10 exactly?

It was in an article I read about her. And she IS interesting!

To a press who just printed topless pictures of The Duchess of Cambridge, Anne is not interesting. She does what she's meant to as a royal and doesn't make a show of herself.

Interesting as a person and interesting as a celebrity are different things entirely. The paps may not love Anne, but her charities do, and her family does - Zara once said that she hoped to be as good a mother to her children as her mother was to her, which is the highest praise a daughter can give. Anne's never been one to cuddle strange children like Diana would, which made her seem cold in comparison, but that is because she is old-school and maintains a public reserve while, by all accounts, being perfectly demonstrative and loving as a parent in private. I'd believe that she's a size 10 - her steady weight, without fluctuations, is testified to by her photographed history. This demonstrates a healthy lifestyle.

The press certainly tried to bother Anne when she was younger, but her constant character, her lack of surprises, led to a dearth of material, thus they let her go. But was this because she was boring, or was it because she decided to paint her public character as boring to the press so that she'd be left alone? Given that she insisted her husband not be given a title, doing her best to raise her children, not as royal grandchildren, but as normal children whose granny happens to be Queen, I say the latter. A boring royal sheep would have allowed convention to rule and her husband to be titled, so her children could be Viscount and Lady. Anne is a woman of opinions, and the rest of the world can, I quote the lady herself, "naff off."

Good for Imogen that she got to present flowers to Princess Anne! I would be tickled if I got that opportunity! (The only drawback was that Imogen
didn't curtsy.)

She doesn't have to curtsy. Also if she's a patient at the hospice (I currently can't watch the video so I don't know), she maybe too ill to do so.

Her dad's a patient; he has terminal cancer and has months to live.
