thanks for the beautiful pictures iceflower. you always find good pictures. bravo!

i have to say, Princess Anne's hairstyle has always been a disaster through the years. she should get a real hair stylist. she is pretty, but it seems she never paid much attention to her looks, even at her 20s.

i think fashion and appearance aren't so important to anne...she'd rather be comfortable...which is fine too.

I'm glad you liked the pics, Madjenn and I understand completely why you like these two best :)

It's the aquamarine and diamond tiara given to the Princess Royal by the Queen Mother. It's been shortened at the sides. Here is a colour pic of the tiara.

Bella, you are most welcome! :)

By accident I found this pic of Anne and Mark on the backside of another article and I like it a lot: so romantic as if they were alone..:)

I've always liked this picture of Pss. Anne and Capt. Mark Phillips. Thanks again, Iceflower. I haven't seen it in a very long time. I think Pss. Anne made a beautiful bride.

i love the photo of anne and mark. it's really lovely.

Anne was a stunning young woman. Judging from photos of her at Ascot, she hasn't lost the ability to turn heads.

Indeed, Bella, there are a lot of similarities between mother and daughter :smile:

Two portraits that were made for Anne's 21st birthday in 1971, to me they look like being taken from a fairy tale book :smile:

These are great pictures, Iceflower!!! I've never seen them and they are, for lack of a better word, "enchanting." You can see a lot of her aunt, Pss. Margaret (when Pss. Margaret was younger) in these photos of Pss. Anne. I wonder who's idea it was for the background. Pss. Anne never struck me as whimsical (always seemed very practical and no-nonsense). I don't care what anyone says, Pss. Anne was quiet beautiful.

Those are two of my favorite pictures of Anne. She was such a stunning woman back in the day, as it were. I love her hair and especially her side profile in this picture.

Thanks a lot for the additional pics, Ianna, the one at the window is a bit strange ;) but on the colour pic she looks so wonderful and relaxed again! Great addition to my Sarah collection :smile: By the way what does CdeI stand for?

Two portraits of Anne, Mark and Peter I love:

Here is a nice portrait of a happy Anne with Mark Philipps in 1973:

Princess Anne as a mother and as an aunt
I have heard a lot of talk about Princess Anne as a Royal ambassador but not a lot about how she was as a mother. I would love to know what other have heard about her as a mother. I think she is very lucky to have (2) well adjusted children, did she have anything to do with it, or was it just good schools and nannies?

christinacg 07-24-2007 09:58 AM

From what I've seen through pictures, she seems to have a close relationship with both of her children. I'm not sure though how much of a role she had in their upbringing. I'm quite sure she used nannies and probably sent them to private schools. So I'd love to hear other peoples insights to this as well.

In an interview I read that Zara gave she said that her mother has had a huge influence on her not just in horseriding but other things to. Anne seems to have an easygoing relationship with both of her children and Mike and Autumn as well which makes it easier on Peter and Zara. Of course their nannies played a big role but I think both of their parents were great influences.

Penny Lane 07-24-2007 11:12 AM

I have always read that she has always been close to both her children and really doted on Zara as a baby.She always made them as much of a prority as her are royal duties.

Skydragon 07-24-2007 04:33 PM

Nannies and schools are not the only reason Peter and Zara seem so well adjusted and happy, IMO. They are loved and they know they are loved. They have the support of both parents, who appear to have listened to what their children are interested in doing and then encouraged them all the way.

Judging by how the children appear to have turned out, I think it fair to say Anne has done a marvelous job.

Anne can be a little cold in public, but you can tell that she's a good mother to her kids. They seem happy and healthy, and though they went through most of the regular teenage stuff, they came out all right. Peter and Zara seem very well-adjusted.
