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?

tommy100 01-19-2014 07:16 AM

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.

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.

Baroness of Books 02-13-2014 07:43 PM

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?

Just watched the BBC's countryfile show with Princess Anne on (tbh didn't know she was going to be on). I was surprised at the extent of the farming that goes on at Gatcombe. I love how Anne seems to have a rather matter of fact approach to the countryside, especially her views on GM crops and how they differ from Charles' - but as she says when you have 9billion people to feed it might be worth getting all the help you can!!

The Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) is a UK based charity which works to improve the lives of people living with disabilities through education and fun. They do this through hippotherapy, where therapy is provided by letting the people with disabilities ride horses and ponies, a task which also gives them enjoyment and a sense of achievement. Members additionally work with a local physiotherapist, Dr Cooper, who provides them with therapy before they begin their riding. An eager horsewoman herself, Princess Anne is the President of RDA, and was an ideal choice for the opening

Actually one or other member of the royal family visits Canada on a routine basis as representatives of the Canadian royal family. Many of these visits are rather low profile (wiki has a list). Princess Anne last visited Canada just last year as colonel-in-chief of her regiment in Barrie, Ontario.

Princess Anne on the island where they think her father Prince Philip is a god | Royal | News | Daily Express
Quote:

PRINCESS Anne yesterday returned to the tiny South Pacific island where her father Prince Philip is worshipped as a god.

Villagers in a remote part of Vanuatu have been convinced since the Royals visited in 1974 that the Duke of Edinburgh is descended from their spirit ancestors.

Anne, 64, was also on the tour aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia 40 years ago when the Katom people around Yaohnanen village on the southern island of Tanna started worshipping the Duke.

They believe he is the son of a mountain spirit who, according to legend, travelled over the seas to a distant land where he married a powerful lady but vowed to one day return to them.

Did you know that The Princess Royal is Colonel-in-Chief of seven #Canadian military units?


This time last week I was saying to a friend how having HRH attending The National Service of Remembrance at The War Memorial would make it an even more memorable. Little did any of us know. :(

Princess Anne and husband Timothy Laurence are currently in the USA.

Yesterday, November 6, they attended the opening of an exhibition celebrating the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC. The exhibition features the Lincoln Cathedral Magna Carta, one of only four surviving copies of the original issue in 1215.


They also attended a ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery (pic 6).

Princess Anne has joined Canadians to remember their war dead, weeks after a crazed gunman shot and fatally injured a soldier standing guard outside Parliament.

Anne is in Canada to represent the Queen at this year's commemorations, which will take place later today at the National Memorial in Ottawa.

The visit comes just weeks after the death of Corporal Nathan Cirillo, who was murdered by an Islamist fanatic as he stood guard outside the Canadian Parliament building.

She is indeed a remarkable member of the British royal family. I'm not sure there will ever be another Princess Anne.

Yes, she is quite unique. And most likely there won't be another lady like her..Canada likes her and she likes us. :) One a side note: I was surprised how good her French pronounciation was. And it was touching that she mentioned Cpl Cirillo.

This made me smile. And to be fair, while she can be quite frosty if you are out of line, she's not nasty. She doesn't seem to play games either.

Not exactly a current event, but there isn't a general news and information thread about Princess Anne, so I decided to post this here. Please feel free to move if in the incorrect thread.

The fanatical loner who tried to kidnap Princess Anne believed he ought to be thanked for highlighting serious flaws in Royal security.
Ian Ball, who ambushed the Princess’s car en route to Buckingham Palace on March 20, 1974, said the police realising that the Royal Family needed better security was the ‘one good thing’ to come out of his ‘audacious’ crime.
Ball seeks to justify his actions in police files which were supposed to remain classified until 2048 but which have been obtained by The Mail on Sunday following a seven-month Freedom of Information battle.

I just checked on their website and it seems the AGM was on 14 November -were you thinking of a different event for 9th January?
Anyway, here is a link with a picture of Anne attending the AGM - click on the pic and you get a larger image.
