I SO agree, CP5! I could not have said it better. Too bad she doesn't use her mother's stylist...

Somebody should tell her its 2010, not 1980.
However, my dear! The Princess Royale is ever mindful of the current economic conditions and I am sure she wouldn't run out and buy a whole new wardrobe. My guess is that she would weave in new pieces bit by bit. Or, at least, IMO, she should.

I, doubt, that the princess is mindful of anything, except her distaste for fashion, which, usually shows. It is, also, okay. She has a wonderful figure, but, unfortunately for her, looks like a Hannover. The queen, until the past number of years had no style, either. She dressed like an 80 year old when she was 40. Her white gloves are archaic, and look ridiculous. Her, recent designers have done her much more justice and she looks much nicer. Anne is Anne. Somewhere she decided, she didn't care what she looked like.

That is such a shame, imho, Countess! Anne, most definitely, could care less what she looks like, and whether it matches or how out-dated she looks. The Queen dresses like she should... A Queen! Anne should start to look like what she is... The Princess Royal.

Being mindful of the economic conditions is completely okay...but she should still look nice when dealing with economics!! She should bring in new pieces bit by bit, but I'm losing hope in Anne. I doubt she'll ever care about her appearance.

I don't think she puts too much effort into her appearance either and I've pretty much resigned myself to it. As long as she's a hard worker and represents the monarchy well then I can accept her fashion faux pas. I do think her recent outfits have looked pretty nice so maybe there's hope.

Anne has never cared about fashion and I don't think she ever will. As for the Queen's gloves I remember reading that she wears them because all the handshaking bruises her hands. Maybe someone can confirm this.

I think it might be more than just bruising. Given that she meets a lot of people from all sections of society, often in quite quick succession, she may not always get an opportunity to wash her hands as often as she may like. IMO The gloves are just an elegant solution to this.

Yes I've noticed it too.
A couple other outfits where she has worn it in the middle:

I've seen it with other outfits too, these are just the ones I found right away.
I like the way it looks.

I wonder if that's one reason Anne doesn't wear white gloves is because they might get dirty shaking all those hands. Beige would be a better colour. But yeah you have a point as to why the royals wear them. All those sweaty hands they have to shake.

The black is out again with a rather unusual colour combination.
Again she has mismatched accessories, blue gloves/hat and black shoes.
Maybe she is color blind.

Also, there are a lot of viruses and such out there and you never know who might have a "bug", so wearing gloves helps protect from that as well especially if you aren't able to wash your hands after meeting all those people.

Very true, Opal, but why does she have to wear such awful colored ones?? Brown, Black, Navy... Why not just a classic white? At the very least, she should not be wearing navy and brown...

But white gloves can be washed, even bleached if necessary.

Indeed they can, blujean! And I would think that the Princess Royal could afford to buy more than just one or two pairs of white gloves... thus eliminating the need to be washing and bleaching every time she wears them. Just a thought, of course. :)

Imagine if she caught one of those "super bugs" that don't have a vaccine.
There was a time when royal ladies always wore gloves. I don't know when (or why) it changed, but perhaps they should go back to doing that with all these germs running rampant.

The brown gloves are out with not a bad looking outfit for where she was... more pics on her current events thread.

All things considered, not a bad outfit for Anne.
