Pics 13.10.2009

The Princess Royal makes an official visit to Donaldson's
School on October 13, 2009 in Linlithgow, Scotland.

I wonder what exactly had happened with the little girl
in pic 2, the laughter in pic 1 seems to be a result of
it as well - it looks quite funny..

The Princess Royal has joined survivors of one of the darkest days in the history of British warfare to lay wreaths on the water at the scene.
HMS Royal Oak was torpedoed by a German U-boat at its base at Scapa Flow, in Orkney, on 14 October 1939.
It sank with the loss of 833 lives, while almost 400 crew were saved.

The Pony Club's new offices at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire are being officially opened today (17 November) by the Princess Royal.

Staff moved into the new offices early this year, which marks the Pony Club's 80th anniversary.

Princess Royal bows out as Pony Club president - Equestrian news, equine news, horse news - Horse & Hound

-----------------------------------

Not being a horse person, the first time I heard of Horse and Hound was in Nottinghill with Julia Robert and Hugh Grant. I had no idea it was a real magazine!

Mandrake can disclose that the Queen's daughter, who is currently a rear-admiral, is to be promoted to her husband's rank next month.

"The Princess Royal has been hugely supportive of the Royal Navy and has done a lot of work for the Services over many years," a Navy spokesman informs me. "This promotion recognises her contribution."

Why the Princess Royal won't need to look up to her husband, Tim Laurence - Telegraph

Congratulations to The Princess Royal!

Indeed, congratulations to Princess Anne!
A very worthy and well-deserved promotion.


Zonk, "Horse & Hound" is the oldest equestrian magazine in the UK (and the world, I think): it has been published since 1880's. Among those who actually read the magazine, it is better known by its nickname - "Nag & Dog". “Horse & Hound” is my favourite equestrian magazine: I greatly enjoy reading the printed version and visit their wonderful website practically every day. “Eventing” comes close second though.

Look how nice her body and legs are at 59. Even as a 26 year-old man, I have to admit that The Princess Royal has a very nice figure where lots of younger ladies can't beat her.

I agree. YOu know, I have never read of TPR dabbles in natreopathic medicine or wholeistic. Would be interesting to know since she obvious takes excellent care of herself!

TPR looks lovely. Do recipients know in advance that PC or TPR are going to be standing in for HM, I wonder if they feel disappointed at all

I don't think that the invitation to an Investiture states that; but I am sure that when you expect The Queen, you have a very perfect 'stand-in' in the form of Charles or Anne. And I have the impression that The Princess Royal really takes it as an honour and a duty to do it for her mother; because I see that she laughs more and enjoying herself more than perhaps on endless other visits, when she sometimes has a more 'serious' and in my eyes sometimes dull appearance on the face. Here she really shines and gleames.

Lovely pictures. Good at Charles or Anne may be at carrying out the investiturtes, I personally would feel a bit cheated if I was expecting HM, and ended up with one of the "substitutes", for want of a better term!

iceflower - thanks so much for the pics. It all looks good except for the coat TPR is wearing

My immediate thought was she could lend it to Gail Emms after the ceremony to cover her baby bump for the journey home
