I have to admit that Anne's recycling formula is pretty interesting. I really don't see anyone wearing clothing they wore over thirty years ago, especially well known public figures. I guess Anne see no harm in it since her clothes is well taken care of and her figure hasn't changed. Then again, I'm still able to fit into some of my clothing that I wore in high school and that was nearly 20 years ago. So I guess it isn't all that bad!

It would be nice to see her wear her hair down every now and then. But she may think she's too old to pull it off.

While the outfits themselves look stylish still, and HRH fits them, the colouring and contours of her face have altered and I don't think those older clothes flatter her in the way they once did.

Exactly so enya! To me Anne's ability to re-use "ancient" pieces of clothing is an extraordinary skill!

It is also difficult to tell which decade it is because her hair style hasn't changed in 30 years.

In gloves at Queen's Awards for Enterprise 2015 Reception.

I mean this with humor. In the summer, with all my outdoor work my hands work hard. I sometimes have problems getting the stains out from under my fingernails. I do scrub and scrub and resort to a bit of bleach in the dish water, but split nails or cuticles can be a persistent problem - over days.
That's what runs through my mind when I see The Princess Royal show up at an event in gloves. And yes, before anyone kvetches, I know she wears gloves often, but just as often takes them off and carries them.

Proper etiquette says that a lady or a gentleman should offer an ungloved hand. You see all continental royals often holding one glove in the gloved left hand, so that the right hand is free for giving correct handshakes. Exception on the rule forms the so-called "opera gloves", these can stay on.

Queen Elizabeth II is known for ignoring this standard etiquette. Maybe she has reasons for doing so, while all other Queens and the Empress of Japan offer a bare hand. What the Princess Royal did was really weird, holding a glass with a gloved hand. Very uncomfortable too.

I read a long time ago that because Queen Elizabeth and Princess Margaret did not have a lot of contact with other children when they were little, they did not build up an immunity to diseases. Nor did they suffer from measles etc. So when out among the public shaking many hands the Queen wears gloves. As an adult if you contract some of these things it hits you a lot worse than if you were a child. Anyway this was the reason given. I read it in a magazine from the 1970s, so true or not I couldn't say.

The gloves look ridiculous, unless she has poison ivy.

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.
