Got to admire Anne for doing engagements like that, not that many other members of the Royal Family would.

I'm sorry but if Prince Charles was asked to open the centre I'm pretty sure he'd turn up as well.

Why wouldn't he? They do the engagements they're asked, unless there are clashes.

My comment was a throw away light hearted comment and there is no need to make a fuss about it. It refelcts MY OWN OPINION that Anne is willing to do visits to a number of places not traditioanlly associated with Royals (for example the numerous visits to prisons she makes on behealf of the Butler Trust).

You would be amazed how little it takes to cause a fuss re: ANYTHING that could be construed as less than glowing about Charles.

which is hilarious as I didn't even specifically mention (or really even mean) Charles in my post. ;-)
Anyway...
This probavly should go elsewhere but it made me laugh, got to admire the way Anne is so frugal with her clothes and I don't blame her!!

Princess Anne's style is not to all tastes but our thriftiest royal will even dust off a look she's not worn for 32 years | Mail Online

I don't know much about ladies fashion but Anne dress as if she's at least in her 70's or 80's. She's a pretty fit lady and I think when it comes down to some of her outfits, she needs to think again.

Without turning this into a fashion page, I have to agree, as much as I like Anne she isn't teh best desser in the Royal Family (or any family) but then again its not what she is about. Wearing clothes from 30 years ago is just part of who she is.

Just how big are their wardrobes? - they must take up rooms!

Put away a coat which costs £1500+ and bring out again 20 years later. Seen twice in 20 odd years (this is not an exact example but gives the gist).

Is that frugal?

It seems like Anne just had her birthday, and she's coming up on another one!

I remember when the Queen was being shown round an exhibition of her clothes at Buckingham Palace before the summer oprning she commented something along the lines of "well one of the wardrobes somewhere must be empty" I know Anne is not the Queen but I imagine all the royal ladies to have massive wardrobes the size of rooms.
If she really only wears an item once or twice then no I suppose its not frugal but I rather suspect she wears them more than that whether its in private when we don't see or in public and just not picked up by the media.

How many women could still fit into the same dresses they wore 20-30 yrs ago? Most would have tossed them out years ago simply because they dont fit anymore.
