Queen Silvia of Sweden also wears gloves when shaking hands with a lot of people at receptions. I've also read that the Swedish royal ladies always carries desinfectants in their purses.

I think for some royals, gloves are just part of their uniform and it also protect the hands.

I think gloves are perfectly justified as they often shake hands with an awful lot of people in the course of one engagement. If I was in their place, I would do the same.

The Princess Royal was not shaking hands but rather sipping from a glass. Looks awkward to say the least.

You are not supposed to eat or drink with gloves on, right?

I think Anne wearing gloves at that reception looks odd. I would imagine that anyone she is likely to meet there would observe ordinary hygiene protocols so I suspect there is a reason she's wearing gloves that's to do with her hands, not the company. It might be that she has a rash on her hands, or an infected nail or cuts with bandaids on them, and she wanted to cover them.

She looks like she usually does. Fashion should not be mentioned with Princess Anne. They don't touch people. Others in the world who shake a lot of hand, live through it. There have no deaths reported by shaking a zillion hands.

So right. But Anne has such a good figure and she frequently dons bright colours and lively prints, this is so dull for a flower show.

I loved Anne's ensemble for the Flower Show, especially her cape and lovely shoes which are hard to find these days. They seem to make skyscrapers and granny shoes!

However, to my great pleasure, it seems that capes of various types are all the rage this season, I can't believe it . . . I'm back in fashion again (I've got three).

A woman asked me about a black cape I was wearing and wanted to know where I bought it. I told her where but said I purchased it "several years ago". I did the math . . . I can give Anne a run for her money on that one.

Handshaking does indeed spread germs. For those of us who only shake a few hands a week or year, it's not much of an issue. But for an elderly person shaking a 'zillion' hands a year, it's a possibility to be concerned about. Some have suggested that 'fist bumps' are a more sanitary way of greeting. Let me know when you see HM or the Princess Royal do that!

I see nothing remotely pretty about Anne's outfit. It's huge on her, way too dull for such a festive event, and well, old. I don't care how hard she works, it's time to start caring about how she looks. But she never will. Sad, in my opinion...
