LOL or worse! I seem to recall a couple of incidences where she said worse!

I am quite certain that Anne couldn't care less what people think of her clothes, hair or anything else about her. She's not the type dears!

Ha that's true. But still ... to wear a dress to a recent wedding that you wore 30 years ago to another very prominent wedding (Charles & Diana)! She must pack her clothes with tons of moth balls to keep them fresh.

I'm envious of the fact that she fits into a dress from 30 years ago.

I thought of that, too. I remember the dress, which, sorry to say was ugly, but she has on great figure.

Oh come on. Do you really think that she can still get into a 30 year old dress without a seamstress doing a little bit of work on it?? Her measurements are hardly the same now that she has had 2 children and she is 60! Granted she still has a nice figure for her age but we all change in places on our bodies over a period of years... even if it's only the hemline.

No not bad. I like the long jacket. Is she wearing a long skirt or are those flaired pants?

Princess Anne wore a green and grey coat for the fourth day of Cheltenham races. She paired it with black leather boots, black bag, gloves and a lovely horse-shaped brooch. Princess Anne had worn the patterned coat before, for the Christmas day church service at Sandringham.

For the second day of the races, Princess Anne wore a burnt orange overcoat with fur hat and brown leather boots.
She had previously worn the same coat orange overcoat at last year's Grand National.

Now, I think the patterned coat is nice but the hat is just vile.
As for the orange overcoat, it's not horrible but I much rather prefer it sans the hat and with a lovely black Chanel bag (as worn for the Grand National).

Anne's hat would have looked better if it were a darker color, maybe black. It's too light against the dark pattern of the coat, but I like the fedora shape. But it's certainly an improvement over the scarf she wore at the Christmas services. The pattern was so bad it looked like she was sporting a blue Elvis pompadour on her head, or someone slightly taller with blue hair was walking beside her.

The burnt-orange coat would have looked nicer with a patterned scarf and a different hat. She looked better last time without one.

A pumpkin colored coat, with a hat that looks like the remains of a black cat.

The orange coat looks much better than the grey-green one, which looks totally outdated, IMO.

Agree with posters who feel the latest two coat outfits look dated. I dont like either one a bit, sorry! : (

I'm with you, Patra. I don't think either one one of these coats are fashionable or flattering on Anne.

Everyone is going to think I am nuts but I like Anne even with the odd clothes and old fashioned hair style. She reminds me of a rather eccentric great aunt. Some how even though her clothes and hair aren't close to being fashionable in a strange way they suit her.

For days at the races at this time of year I don't think high fashion is a primary concern and it certainly not ever a prime concern of the Princess Royal since she can reach into her closet and still wear outfits from 30 years ago. Cheltenham is not Ascot.

I don't mind the coat, but the hat was awful. It looked old and mis-shaped and did nothing for the shape of her face. Fedora + narrow jaw = disaster.

I understand what you mean. Anne strikes me as someone strong-willed and uncompromising, and her clothing expresses that.

I am likely the sole person who feels this way but I love the coat - and absolutely love the hat! Its great - especially the color. So there you go - to each his own! I love it!

Don;t like the color of the orange coat. The patterned coat is not bad. Imagine if she had worn an elegant hat with it what a difference the whole look would be.
