Thanks for posting this. I really enjoyed it. She certainly has a quick wit.

She's such a good girl, isn't she? Such a pretty girl!

I think that's a picture of Anne at the official dinner on the eve of William & Catherine's wedding in 2011.

A "good girl"? I think Anne stopped being a girl around 40 years ago.

It was and she was 60 at the time.

Yea I have to agree with Lumutqueen- that sounds more like a description of Lady Louise than it does the Princess Royal.

Although I did get a laugh trying to imagine Princess Anne's expression if she'd were to read that description!

Deep down, I'm sure PA is still a girl at heart especially around her grandchildren!

Anne was cute when she was a child:

She looks a lot like HM in the last one.

Those are adorable photos; thanks for posting. There's such a resemblance to Louise in the second one. Strong family traits.

I was thinking the same! ;)

When my youngest brother was born, for a while we thought he was going to be a redhead (there's red hair in our family) but it too turned dark brown. He's now 17 and 6 foot 1; and he's almost the spitting image of our dad at that age: while I resemble our dad's sister.

That's the same as me- I had a fringe as well, which went when I was around 3 or 4.

There are no words I can use to describe that portrait of Anne.

The way she's wearing the festoon tiara there is very interesting- very far back on her head. It suits though. The whole thing looks like it could be the cover of a romantic novel from the seventies, but I mean that in the best way possible. HRH does look lovely.

*blinks and takes a good hard second look*

I have seen this picture many times over the years, but had never noticed she was wearing the Festoon tiara in it due to both the soft focus of the photo and how far back on her head Anne has it. Thanks for mentioning it.

Sigh....It is truly amazing just how great HRH can look when she really puts her mind to it for a formal portrait. Like the great ones that were done of her for her, IIRC, 50th Birthday. I showed them to my Mom and she hadn't a clue it was Anne. Just simply because she looked like, in Mom's words, "What you expect a Princess to really look like."

I do love just un fussy and no nonsense she is, but I also wish she'd surprise and dazzle us a few times more than she does, because when Anne wants to look va-va-voom, she really can and does.

I have always thought that was the best photo of Anne ever made public.

Baroness of Books 02-22-2013 05:14 PM

She looked absolutely ethereal there. Oh, right, I just noticed Mark Phillips in the photo, too!:lol:

sarahedwards2 02-22-2013 06:24 PM

I heard that when Charles saw Anne on her wedding day to Mark Phillips, he said "She's too made up."
