"The Princess Royal planted the last of 88,000 trees in the new 70-hectare woodland. As well as providing valuable forest cover for military training exercises, Loggy’s Diamond Wood marks the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012."

May I ask why Princess Ann has the title of "Princess Royal"? Her brothers are" Prince of Wales", "Duke", "Earl" . Is it because she is the only daughter of Her Majesty?

Wikipedia has an article on the title 'The Princess Royal' here Princess Royal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In short its traditionally given to the eldest daughter of the sovereign, its the sovereign's personal gift and can only be held by one person at a time. Sons of the sovereign had many titles they could be given, Prince of Wales for the eldest, Duke of York the second eldest etc. This one was to recognise the female side of the family.

Many thanks! :-)

Princess Royal has been busy - and I'm not talking about the Olympics.

Whilst in Russia, she has undertaken engagements not connected to the Games. She has done 11 in Moscow and just completed another 3 in St Petersburg and there are more to come.

Obviously that book she was reading wasn't gripping enough!

Olympic engagements (mtgs and attending Games) = another 11 engagements.

She does work hard and believes in getting value for money out of this trip.

Nothing like a multi-tasking royal! Good for Anne for using whatever opportunities come along wherever she is. I'm curious to know the title of the book she was reading.

Thanks, Iceflower. You know you have made it when the press runs a map showing where your grave is.
I wonder if Anne was a big fan. This is not her usual sort of "opening." Maybe because of the Queen Victoria film?

iceflower 03-07-2014 05:01 PM

You're welcome! But I fear we won't find out about that..

Today, March 7, Princess Anne attended the Grand Military Race Meeting at Sandown Racecourse in Esher, Surrey.
