Thats a brilliant one. I suspect things will change after teh wedding and she may not always be able to rely on older clothes.

I think this is terrific. I hope she continues to do it. Her disregard for fashion is one thing I have always liked about Princess Anne. I have always thought far too much attention is given to what royal women are wearing. There is no need to wear very expensive high fashion designer clothes. I'm not saying she should shop at Target, just that she should not always wear the most expensive designer stuff.

I too think her style is great- fresh, unique and independent. Just like Diana- Wills is brilliant for snatching such a great girl!

I think that she has her finger on Britain's pulse. A lot of people aren't able to afford new clothes with the recession.

Hen night??
I'm guessing that's a bachelorette party?

It is indeed.
Hen night for the bride and Stag night for the groom.

Thanx LQ
That's much more fun than saying "bachelorette party".

It's easier to say Hen night when you've had a few.

The Princess Royal's clothing is very expensive, although not high fashion. It's also very classic, so it lasts forever and she wears it forever. I'm proud to have that in common with HRH.

It is known how Catherine hates it when paparazzi make money with her. I think the same thing applies to fashion. I wouldn't wonder if she chose the engagement outfits by purpose in the knowledge that they are classical enough to be considered highly fashionable but from former collections so it's difficult to actually make money from her wearing those.

It will be different I think when she starts as a Royal to support British fashion designers. So far as a private individual she can buy and wear clothes from last year's collections at reduced prices and wear them whenever she feels like it.

Probably because it takes more creativity to make stuff up than to report facts.

They are paid to write it because people pay to buy it.

I think this article might have been spurred on by the constant attention to her weight and the fact that she might be too small. Even here on the forums, it's been discussed, and it will be discussed for years to come....so really this "non-informational nonsense" is brought on by the fact that it's what people talk about. Sad, isn't it?

And it is what some people like to talk about the most. Even more sad, imo.
