I like most of these espcially the lavender hat and outfit I know may will disagree but I like alot of what she wears she is not fussy and she has a figure many women would love to have she may not be the most stylish princess but that is not her goal I think she does what is best for her the only thing I would really change is her hair I would have it shorter and more modern

I like The Princess Royal--she's no nonsense in both her attitude and her fashion sense. Loved seeing all the recycled clothing--not too many of us can say that we've worn the same clothes for decades!

I have to agree, and as much as I would like to commend Anne on her frugality and carefree ability to wear clothes that have gone out of style decades ago (she does have a fine figure), I believe her sense of style would be called "dowdy" or "boring" at the best of times.
(And lets not get started on her hair)

Many of her hats these days are far from new. The small pillbox hats she wore on photos in this section are from the 1970s and 1980s. Many of her hats are bought with one design, but different colour. If you see the white hat worn for the 2003 Service to commemorate the Coronation, the service for the Diamond Wedding, these are perfectly the same, but in different colour. The dress worn at Charles and Camilla is exactly the same in all the four photographs shows in that post.

I think I am just going to echo what everyone else says.

Yes, yes yes, it's fabulous that Anne recycles so many outfits, but some of the ones she chooses to recycle are just so dated. The red suit at East Mids airport, for the eighties, it was just so, well, seventies.

And as for the turquoise suit for Charles and Camilla's wedding. It was hideous, and totally inappropriate to wear a suit for this occasion that she had worn at other high profile events (the Linley wedding, and QM's 100th b'day).

Of course - the prime example of recycling is this! Princess Anne recycles dress she first wore 27 years ago | Mail Online Funny this, I loved it on her at Charles and Di's do, but now, she makes me think of Bette Davis tryig to recapture her lost youth in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane...

27 years ago!! Oh for a storage area so large, without moths, rodents or dust. I wonder if she's got it all catalogued on computer, the day outfits, the ball gowns, the dinner dresses, the hats, the bags, the shoes, the tiaras, the jewellery

If your going to keep a dress like that (WHY) you should do what PDiana did. Change to a blouse, change neckline, something, to make it look more updated. But I think in this case, the money you waste by discarding saves so many people from suffering from fashion migraines. Do It for the People PAnne!!!

Do you really think that woman would catalogue her clothes on a spreadsheet?! Good God, I'm not even sure she puts them on with the light on. There has to be a reason for the omelette outfit surely? Oh Anne... why? Such a shame - such a great figure, but terrible taste. Being a princess is really wasted on some women isn't it?

I noticed during the past months that The Princess Royal began the custom of wearing her brooches 'dead centre' like Queen Mary, her great-grandmother used to do it. I really adore her, because she is such a character and a tower of a monument, as I experienced when meeting her three years ago. But as all people say, her choice of chothes, hats and jewellery is sometimes out of date.

Another royal 'blunder'. I can not say how much I adore The Princess Royal, not only for her work, but for her appearance as well. I saw her on a regimental gathering for St Patrick's Day; and although dressed in a woolen boring dark Emereld green coat, fur hat and riding boots; she was 'The Princess Royal' and everyone knew they were in the company of a royal. However, this hat is again a disaster. I love her coffee brown deux-pieces, but the hat is beyond understanding a bad choice!!! She seems like a fruit-picker on The Queen's estate. I would have prefered her the hat she wore for the Diamond Wedding Anniversary service, which would have been better with this outfit.

I am really puzzled as to why she chose this hat. It looks like something one would wear while gardening. The fruits on the back are kind of whimsical, but not the best thing to wear to Easter services.

i honestly dont know what to say about the easter hat - i know she has never wanted to be known for her fashion choices instead concentrating on her royal duties and charities but this choice is simply very strange
This is the stuff of fairytales
