Only a couple of days after the Duke of Edinburgh's visit (see here), Princess Anne has been in Sennelager, Germany as well.

Yesterday, May 30, she visited the troops and presented operational medals.


The green of Anne's outfit looked great with the red uniforms!

Anne looks great and seems in a happy mood.

Her BFF, Andrew Parker-Bowles!)

I love that nautical windbreaker on her, but, my, she does rock a uniform! I love that rear shot of her waving to the cruise ship. Thanks for all the photos, Iceflower.

Anne has always had a staturesque, regal air about her and it really shows when she wears a uniform. Something floaty and in taffeta just isn't Anne.

Exactly, Osipi, Anne has that regal and dignified air about her that so suits a uniform. She seems more at home in military garb than in dainty, frilly outfits.

I find her far more authentic in uniform. She has a regal and no-nonsense aura that fits perfectly with military garb.

I'm always amused when people compliment Anne so highly when she wears a military uniform, but others degrade Edward so much for doing the exact same.

I've never degraded Edward at all in his military uniform, nor ever would. From a fashion standpoint, Anne excels in this look; I'm not getting into the whys and wherefores of should or should she not wear a uniform, and the same goes for Edward. I do think he looks dapper in uniform, but doesn't have his sister's air and presence.

I was basically commenting on how the cut of a military uniform suits Anne so well not the fact that she does or does not wear one. It would be like commenting on how the cut of a military uniform suits Edward and his demeanor and have nothing to do with whether or not he should wear one.

Some people just look horrid in a uniform while others wear them perfectly.

Ladies, I never pointed the finger at anyway. I said 'people' and 'others'.
