I'd have liked to see her in entirely the rose pink; what a beautiful color on her.

Princess Anne looks nice and seems to follow her mother, the queen with wearing those matching gloves.

I like the olympic rings necklace Anne is wearing. I really have no idea if just anyone can wear the Olympic logo, but perhaps the necklace was given to Anne for all her hard work she's put into the Olympic games over the years on the IOC committee?

I'm really hoping these games in London reflect all the hard work she's put into making it all a possibility.

Princess Anne is a member of IOC and President of British Olympic Association, so I daresay she's more than entitled to wear the lovely necklace.

Oh I agree 100%! What ever Anne takes on, she works hard at it.

Princess Anne looked really beautiful and elegant, definitely the best outfit I've seen her in lately.

Nice to see Tim Lawrence with her.

He seems to be attending more and more events with the Princess since his retirement from the Navy (which would make sense).

How little Anne found her sea legs aged three: Delightful picture shows Princess at the helm of her toy boat in 1953
Quote:
She may have been just three and at the helm of a toy boat, but the same wistful gaze to the horizon is plain to see. As this picture taken in 1953 shows, Princess Anne’s love of sailing began at a young age. Earlier this week, the Daily Mail revealed the princess is indulging her passion for all things nautical by splashing out £500,000 on a bespoke yacht.

Looked at the DM article and priceless error!

Caption attached to picture of PA sailing:
"Keen sailor: Princess Anne has always loved sailing, competing in various races including the British Steel Challenge in 1992 (pictured). She also won the 1971 European Eventing Championship in her recently sold boat"

Would have loved to see her yacht doing the dressage stage!

I would have preferred to see her horse sailing in a race!

When I was that age I was catching small fry off the dock of our cottage. Now I go out trolling in the boat.

Whoops! I just nearly killed Princess Anne... and got a right earbashing in return! Champion jockey Clare Balding on the moment she narrowly avoided knocking her royal rival off her horse
Quote:
Relations between me and Princess Anne had got off to an unfortunate start even before we rode against each other on that mortifying August afternoon in 1989. Then 18, I was competing in only my second season as an amateur jockey and we were about to take part in a Ladies Handicap race at Beverley in East Yorkshire. As was usual whenever the Princess was present, the ladies’ changing rooms had received a hasty makeover, but she changed alongside us and did not expect any special treatment.
