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.

Princess Anne as President of the Edith Cavell Centenary Appeal, together with husband Tim and Princess Astrid of Belgium attended the celebrations marking the centenary of the death of Edith Cavell in Uccle, Brussels today, October 12.

"The British nurse Edith Cavell was killed hundred years ago by German during WWI. Edith Cavell is celebrated for saving the lives of soldiers from both sides without discrimination and in helping some 200 Allied soldiers escaped from German-occupied Belgium during the First World War, for which she was arrested. She was subsequently court-martialled, found guilty of treason and sentenced to death. Despite international pressure for mercy, she was shot by a German firing squad. Her execution received worldwide condemnation and extensive press coverage"

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...
