I can see that completely. Anne has no patience for drama and neediness and Diana could not get along with someone who just did not cater to her ways.

Disclaimer: My opinion. Lets not start another Diana war.

I would tend to agree with you - Princess Anne seems very no nonsense - in a good way - and in my opinion, I could see her rolling her eyes at Diana and the drama.

No war, this was nicely said and I think it is clear that Anne is not into drama; she will walk away from drama.

I think, just as a joke of for fun, some of the of the Queen's children should hug in public. They could spend the rest of their lives reading and chuckling over the press reaction. And yes, I know the family is not huggy. That's my point.

And before you say it, yes Will and Harry hug their dad and step mom. I know that and I know where it comes from.

This is true Anne seems a no nonsense lady. Yet I remember reading at the time that of all the (adult) BRF Anne was the one who was openly weeping at Diana's funeral. Relationships among family members, especially after a divorce, are always multi-layered and complex.

Can't really see Princess Anne and Diana getting along at all. That didn't necessarily mean that they hated or had a strong dislike for each other.

I would guess that Princess Diana and Prince Phillip didn't get along very well.

I imagine there are royals that don't like each other or have nothing in common with each other. They probably don't socialize or rarely socialize with each other. When it's not a family member, that's easy to do. What's difficult is when it's someone that's a member of you're family.

Anne is a no nonsense person. Diana was needy and popular. Anne was just that woman in that "ugly" dress. Anne is not necessarily the epitome of warmth and kindness. On the other hand, she loves her father, more than the others, she is his favorite, she strives hard for her foundations, but it is a job and she does well at jobs.

Regarding Anne and Diana, I agree. The two had completely different personalities and Anne certainly isn't a media-circus lady like Diana was. I've also always found it odd that Anne wasn't chosen as a godparent for neither William nor Harry (and that Andrew was chosen over her as a godparent for Harry; one would think that Anne would be the obvious choice as she seemingly is the sibling who is closest to Charles).

EDIT: Not implying that Diana was the only one choosing godparents, rather that the relationship between Diana and Anne could have been a factor. Come on now, this was not meant as a kickstarter for trouble

It's sometimes the people, the quiet ones, who seem gruff, tough, insensitive, etc. who have the most depth of feeling and hurt and love most deeply.... showing it is not always easy for the 'still waters run deep' type.

Given the warmth of the letters between Diana and Philip I am not sure I would bank on your statement as factual.

Prince Andrew is closer in age to Diana (he's only a year older) which may have been a factor. Princess Ann is nearly 10 years old than Diana. If they didn't get along very well (Princess Ann and Princess Diana) this could be a factor as well when chosing a godparent. Usually you chose someone you like.

Are we assuming that Diana not Charles is responsible for Anne no being chosen as a godparent? I don't, I either Charles, advisers and Diana were the responsible for picking godparents.

Anne is definitely no nonsense. It is also reported that she doesn't get along with Sophie either, but that could be down to age and very different personalities. Seems she wasn't too fond of her brothers' choices in wives! Did she get along with Sarah?

I seem to recall that Anne did get on with Sarah due to their love of horses/riding. They had a common interest.

Diana and Anne did get along but the tabloids wanted to make them enemies.

This was taken at a service commemorating the war dead. It was appropriate that they looked very serious.
