Princess Anne has a gap in her Future Events during the Olympics. She is either taking a break or is going but has not announced yet.

Anne is the rare Brit Royal that publishes her FE well in advance.

The FE is now listing Anne as attending the Winter Olympics and the pre-games IOC meeting. That was not on the FE on Saturday when I last checked so has only been put up in the last day or so (note that she had many engagements listed for well into March before then).
