Does the Princess Royal have a PA that travels with her? In all those photos I have looked at, I have never noticed.

Princess Royal missed an engagement due to bad weather and the helicopter not being able to manage.

She obviousyl doesnt rate the vitriol that Catherine got, and she was only late.

Oooh, lavender and camo - one of my favorites. Seriously though, a nice visit by a hard working Royal.

Well, year in year out she is one of the hardest working members of BRF, so I imagine that the 'man on the street' is wlling to cut her some slack if the helicopter couldnt fly and she was hours away by car. Those who are less consistantly hard working might not be given the benefit of the doubt.

New and different handbag!

As to missing an engagement and not being raked over the coals, I suspect this is the upside of being considered one of the less interesting of the royals. I do love it when she choppers out and does 5 stops in a day!

(Putting my proud of my area cheering cap on...). The diamonds on the brooch of the cap badge of The Frey and Simcoe Foresters? Came from the diamond mine in my hometown!! We're more well known for our Nickel and Copper Mines, but about 10 years ago a mining company had the bright idea that since we're in what's considered to be "The Mother Lode" area of The Canadian Shield, the odds there were also Diamonds to be found could be worth the risk. Sure enough, there are!! :)

Sorry for the bragging, but AFAIK, this the first time any of the Diamonds found in our area have been used for such an important and very Special Gift. Wonder if HRH will wear it for The Festival of Rememberance?

If Princess Anne had gone just 25 minutes up the road, she would have been in the birthplace of the greatest folk singer of all time (who is fast approaching his 75th birthday), just shy of 2 hours north of where I live. HORRIBLE rush hour traffic though, for a city of only 30,000 people. It took us 3 hours to drive the last 120 miles home from the cottage this summer. I doubt Princess Anne has any interest in folk music though. Too bad, because the auditorium of the local opera house is named after him.

I was really shocked when I saw that on CNN this morning. Most equestrians are horrified at the thought of eating horsemeat. To me it would be like eating a baby.
