People wanted to know what is "winter white." I didn't know how to explain so I looked on the web and fashionistas say it is creamier than just "white."

Anne's dress was pretty white. Grace's suit was more of a cream color.

(Not that that clarifies it!) I don't know, it was just a big uproar.

iowabelle 08-16-2005 08:33 PM

There's got to be photos here on this site showing the people at Anne's wedding. Right?

iowabelle 08-16-2005 08:36 PM

I looked. Doesn't seem to be ... how could we forget so I'll start one.

In some ways - especially in the above picture - her dress reminds me of Princess Leia's dress (Star Wars). :rolleyes:

I don't understand how Princess Grace could have made such a mistake as to wear white - even winter white - at someone else's wedding. How rude and inelegant. Especially if you consider that at that time North American women were not supposed to wear white after Labour Day and Princess Anne's wedding was in November.

Princess rededicates famous yacht

michelleq 09-07-2005 09:21 PM

She is most definitely one of the hardest working Royals today.

Princess BellyFlop 09-08-2005 12:33 PM

Her body shape - which you can see when she rededicates the yacht - is simply amazing. Too bad she's really not into fashion and doesn't care at all about it because she could easily be the stunning princess she was when she was younger. Just a new haircut could do the trick.

kelly1972 09-08-2005 02:09 PM

Princess Anne looks fantasic for a women who just celebrated her 55th birthday. As far as I'm concerned she is the hardest working member of the royal family with the exception of the Queen. Her devotion to her country is well known .

Here are the best bits...

Princess Anne's and Cherie
Mrs Blair's rift with Princess Anne is said to date back to 1997, when they met for the first time at Balmoral. The Princess Royal appeared to take an instant dislike to Mrs Blair after the Prime Minister's wife suggested she call her 'Cherie', the book claims. Princess Anne allegedly replied: "Actually, let's not go that way. Let's stick to Mrs Blair, shall we?"

Cherie's dislike of dogs
Cherie absolutely despises the creatures [The Queen's corgis]," said one source quoted in the book. 'She thinks it is disgusting that they hang around her feet (at mealtimes).

Cherie's manner
The Queen is said to be annoyed by Mrs Blair's 'hectoring legalistic tone'.

Cherie mortified by singing Queen Mum
The apparent tensions, however, did not stop the late Queen Mother inviting Mrs Blair to an afternoon tea party for her elderly women friends during a Balmoral holiday. According to Scott: "It was not just tea but a steady supply of sherry that was on offer to the titled OAPs. "The party began in a genteel enough manner, but as the afternoon progressed it steadily descended into a raucous singalong with the Queen Mother leading from the front and insisting that a mortified Cherie join in every tune."

Here is some:
https://www.femalefirst.co.uk/entertainment/93922004.htm

I like this part:
"She also said it was bizarre that when they yap a footman would have to escort them outside, wait for them while they went to the toilet, and scoop up what they left behind." :eek: :D :eek:

The Queen Mother was so cute. Singing and stuff that is adorable. I would have been laughing to much to sing along. I always liked Cherie, I think she is a kind women, I understand the dislike of dogs, not everyone is a dog person.

Maybe Princess Anne was having a bad day or was in a weird mood the day that PM Blair told her to call her Cherie instead of Mrs. Blair. You know women we have moods!

BeatrixFan 09-20-2005 01:23 PM

Re:
 
"Actually, let's not go that way. Let's stick to Mrs Blair, shall we?"



I think this is extremely sensible of HRH. (If it is true) I would do the same in her position - one never knows how long a PM and his wife will last in Number 10 and I wouldn't get too friendly with each PM because it would look bad to be friends with an ex-PM when the new PM came along!

Remember also that the RF like to seem unpolitical. Being too overfriendly with Cherie may cause people to say that Princess Anne was a Blair supporter and after Cherie's wrong-doings and the the whole Iraq thing, I personally think that Anne is wise to take this stance.

iowabelle 09-20-2005 03:24 PM

I wouldn't have minded being at the Queen Mother's sing-along, especially after a few drinks. She might have minded my singing, though!

The Blairs seem to have some interesting hobbies.

On the whole, I would prefer not to have Mrs. Blair as my house guest. What a rude woman. (Maybe she should have consulted an allergist before going to Balmoral, or even told the Queen about her health condition. It's not like the corgis are a surprise to anybody!)

Mrs Blair's father is a rather dreadful british actor who played Alf Garnett's son-in-law in an old british sitcom. Truly dreadful type & Cherie's "airs & graces" really are ludicrious!

ysbel 09-22-2005 11:25 AM

Anne is someone I admire. She got out of a bad marriage and bad reputation with the press, found a husband and a life for herself that is really fulfilling. She is discreet but doesn't mince word when she does speak and doesn't suffer fools gladly. That last part would intimidate me if I met her though; I'd be scared of saying something stupid. :)

I think it's just a matter of protocol and training. Jackie Kennedy wore gloves often when she was in the White House, and the Queen did too in the 1960s and 1970s. (I'm not sure when the Queen's gloves became less frequent.) I think Diana was the one who "banished" gloves as part of her daily accessories.

Gloves also give your hands some protection if they're going to be squeezed a lot.

Zonk 09-29-2005 08:05 PM

They (Princess Anne and Andrew Parker Bowles) are friends. I believe they dated before he married Camilla.

Zonk 09-29-2005 08:06 PM

Also, Andrew Parker Bowles was the godson of the Queen Mother.

kelly1972 10-01-2005 10:03 AM

Andrew Parker Bowles is also a godfather to Princess Anne's daughter Zara and a close friend of her father Mark Phillips as well.

Her mother dresses 100 times better than her nowadays for gods sake. I wish we could see anne for a day dressed more in the style of for example a queen sophia, I would be satisfied. Anne definitely has elegance or prescence but terrible taste.

Anne's clothing
 
The Princess Royal is not interested in fashion only in doing her job. The I think 40th birthday picures of her were really good. She looked wonderful and she really looks good with her hair down. I can under stand that she is thrifty with her clothing but wearing clothes from 20 years ago is just crazy to me. Especially when they weren't stylish then.

Even her 50th birthday pictures were lovely. She has kept a wonderful figure, and it wouldn't be hard to dress her in a more attractive way.

kelly1972 10-07-2005 06:33 AM

I certainly agree that Princess Anne needs to be arrested by the fashion police. Her daughter Zara is very stylish and always looks impecable. I had read once that it was Zara that helped her mother choose her outfits that she wore for her 50th birthday portraits. It is really hit and miss with Anne. Sometimes she dresses lovely like in the pictures of her in this thread in the blue suit. Other times forget it.

Maybe if Princess Anne updated her hairstyle the out of date clothes would look better!!!!!!!!! :p MInd you I envy Anne the fact that she can still fit into clothes she wore as long ago as 15 years!!!!. She still is, and always will be one of my favorite hardworking Royals who leaves most others for dead:)

Toledo 12-14-2005 11:30 PM

Per Mrs. Toledo, she will look less severe with shorter hair more appropiate to her age as well as some high lights to soften her features.

Per Mr. Toledo, she could can the helmet hair and get something more modern. Her sister in law, Camilla, should drag Anne to a salon pronto and get her into the 21st century screaming if she has to.

Incas 12-14-2005 11:56 PM

That's a laugh, Camilla is being criticized for her own hair do. Now she is considered modern compared to Anne.

Toledo 12-15-2005 12:13 AM

Camilla's hair is like Farah Fawcett's circa 1974? Maybe is the light color that do soften her up, but she looks a little more modern than Anne who seems to be channeling the spirit of the Edwardian Era's Gibson Girl. Anne has room for improvement.

I have always admired Princess Anne, not just because she works hard but the fact she is her own woman. She never once felt the need to change who she was to please others. She is not into fashion or appearance that the is that. People used to hold this against her and now many admire her because she is not shallow. She does look wonderful at age 55, and you can certainly tell she wasn't a sun worshipper. Her skin is lovely. Diana had great skin as well, but she liked to tan and I noticed in the last year of her life she was beginning to show sun damage.

The Princess Royal has opened two new medical research centres in Glasgow that "will alter the face of Scottish health for generations".
A new £12m centre, funded by the British Heart Foundation and 1,200 donors, will target heart disease.
The "world-class facility" will study the causes of cardiovascular disease and research prevention and treatment.
The Princess Royal also opened a biomedical research centre tackling diseases like asthma and arthritis.
Both centres are based within the University of Glasgow in the west end.

While it's admirable that Princess Anne does not live by fashion polls, she should try a little bit more. A soft shorter haircut would be a nicer start, and then to send Trinny and Susannah over to Gatscombe would be helpful, too.

ROYALS: Princess pays a flying visit
THE Princess Royal paid a special visit to the county yesterday.
Hundreds of enthusiastic royal-watchers gathered in Wisbech and Huntingdon, waving flags to welcome Princess Anne.

She was in the area to open Orchards C of E Primary School's new hall and a new treatment centre in Hinchingbrooke Hospital.

Wearing a cherry red long coat and long boots to keep out the cold, the Princess's first stop in Wisbech was at the school.

She flew in by Royal helicopter, landing on the school playing field, to be greeted by Richard Barnwell, the deputy Lord Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire.

She spent more than an hour touring the school chatting to teachers and pupils before unveiling an official plaque in the £1.9 million new hall.

In terms of Anne's appearance I think she presents herself as a clean individual who will dutifully wear acceptable attire for the occasion. There is definately a need in EII's family for children who will play a backseat role. If you don't fit in at the classy events why not accept that and try to save the children?

And speaking of children, you have to give her at least partial credit for how her own turned out. I don't know if they get their looks from their father or a young Prince Phillip but who would have ever guessed she'd produce two offspring that were attractive? Kudos to her!

I, too, used to be critical of her fashion sense, but on second thought, she is not a very attractive woman, but she lives her life quietly and well. She works very hard and has raised too lovely children. We all can't be beautiful. She could have had plastic surgery and all the help in the world, but she does not seem to be vain and has a good head on her shoulders. She should be praised for all her good efforts.

She really was a beautiful bride and her dress had more class and sophistication and style, then any of the other royal brides and that includes Princess Diana's;) :) . I simply don't understand why she doesn't advertise herself more. New hair do, softer make up ( or perhaps she doesn't wear that much) new line of clothing. Even her Mother has brought up her appearance 100% in the past few years. The Queen is truly looking well turned out and has gotten rid of those prints she wore for years.. IMO of course:)

Hi . Just reading your post after I sent mine. I tend to disagree with you view on her looks. She always looks stern, unhappy, a little miserable even, but when she was younger she had a nice quality about her appearance and looks. She has the best figure of any of the royals and has kept it through her exercise of riding etc..Take a look at some back pictures of her, when in her teens and 20's. She could look much more like that if she wanted to.

I think that she's very much the beautiful lady the public school boys adore. Matronly without the flab. I think she is attractive actually and her fashion sense is a little out of place but her clothes were nice when they were first worn. Now they're a little old fashioned. I think that she had the best wedding dress of all the brides, rivalled only by Camilla's blessing outfit.

I love the way she is dresses in the theme it seems. Her colours almost match the uniforms. She looks very lovely

Proud Royal Scots march into history

THE proud 373-year reign of the Royal Scots was laid to rest today as crowds lined Princes Street to bid Edinburgh's regiment an emotional farewell.

Regarding her wardrobe and appearance, I agree with the post stating that Pss Anne dresses for the occasion. I've seen photographs of her in formal attaire where she looked lovely. She appears to me to be a no-nonsense kind of person who is probably much more at home in jeans and mud boots. Her strong affiliation with horse events allows for that. Having been born a royal (rather than having married into it) she strikes me as a realist who understands that being a princess isn't all about what you wear and how you look. I have the utmost respect for her. I think alot of people do.

The hat is not that bad. She basically has no fashion sense, but I don't think she really cares. She is a no nonsense person, but genuine. What you see is what you get. She is not a phony as some in the family. She works hard and does not whine. I used to have a different opinion of her, but I have come to admire her. She doesn't worry what she has on, because her job is more important that her picture.

Adry 07-01-2006 10:15 PM

Of course she´s a hard worker inside the Royal House..nobody can deny the quality of her duties and maybe her way of acting..but definitely her clothing sometimes is out of this world:p

I think once one settles into marriage she needed less of an effort to keep him. So I think she's settled into who she is and doesn't want to pretend to be someone else. Which is cool. On the other hand her husband is rather attractive I would put forth a LITTLE more effort. But they've been married this long no need to pull out the curlers and makeup now LOL

Well she had a really nice outfit at Ascot so maybe she's changing her style?

ysbel 07-02-2006 08:13 PM

Actually I like this last hat.
