When seeing today's look, I'm somehow reminded of the young Princess Anne in her early twenties..

It's deliciously old fashioned : a 20 years old dress, opera gloves. It's appropriate, it's regal it's so... Anne.
What a contrast with the young Queen.

You realize that the Floral tiara that the young queen is wearing was commissioned as a wedding gift for Queen Maria Christina in 1879, don't you ?

So I think we cannot accuse Queen Letizia of being too "modern".

You make me laugh. Are you disappointed by something... again ?

You can't deny a difference of "allure" between the two ladies. But both look great tonight, each in a different style : a traditional and safe one for Anne (an it suits her) and a regal and yet modern style for Letizia (an it suits her as well).
Two generations of royal ladies, two styles !

I was thinking the same, this is the kind of dress you can only expect Anne to wear and look good in. She's always deliciously herself.

Anne has kept her figure that's for sure. Good on her for being able to still fit into a 20 year old gown (and all her other vintage clothing.)

I adore Anne. Recycling a 20+ year old dress. I love it! It also fits her well and is appropriate for the event. The jewels are delicious. Of course, she could try the "Princess Mary trick" and re-work the dress, I would simply take the "puffs" off of the sleeve, and bingo, new more modern dress.

Anne looks great...that she can wear a dress from 20 years ago is something! She looks very royal...love the whole look.

Princess Anne looks so majestic and elegant in her gown even if it is 20 years young. She is simply a very beautiful woman to this day and carries herself with such dignity and grace. Yes one lady is of the older generation and one of the modern generation and both look great. IMO to be able to wear this gown that is that old, says something about the woman who wears it and still looks beautiful.

I can die happy now. Seriously, she was on her game tonight. I'm close to her age and so I can understand her fashion challenges. I realize this is a fashion thread, but as evidence of how she rocked this look, I submit this picture in which The King clearly appreciates her complete and unique Princess Royal-ness; and she right back at him.

I loved the photo of King Felipe kissing her hand as she curtseys, it's a wonderful moment because the King looks kind of shy (DM calls it chuffed), he even has a slight blush on his face. But that photo gives a fantastic rear view of Anne's hair, which is gorgeous, and her smile later is indulgent.

(AND the clothes are becoming!)

No wonder her name is Princess Royal for this is a *Royal Princess* raised by a queen who knows just how to be in these situations and events. I have always so admired this woman for she seems very intelligent and suffers no fools. IMO this is a *Real Royal Princess* like no other. Now what else has she saved over all these years that is hiding in her closet/closets, oh to dig through that closet would be such joy......

She really was full of verve! What deep curtsies, what a great figure, even her hair looked good with all her dainty diamonds. Do we know for sure the dress was twenty years old? I would guess more like thirty plus, the eighties, because of the dropped waist which I love. Just wish something had been done to the sleeves

She looked beautiful and regal

My only point wasn't fond of were gloves. Makes it too Disney.

She's from the era of gloves ...and she pulls it off. As the Queen does too.

I really like her jacket. It is very different and yet suits her.
