20th Century Royal Fashion History – H.R.H Princess Anne The Princess
Like all members of the royal family, H.R.H Princess Anne The Princess Royal has been a celebrity whose appearance and style sense has always been under scrutiny.
As the daughter of Queen Elizabeth, Her Royal Highness Princess Anne The Princess Royal has been a celebrity and widely photographed media figure since birth. Though she plays a less significant role compared to her brother Prince Charles, who is the heir to the british throne, her personal life and sense of style has been the subject of comment and gossip in the media for many decades now.
Photographs which are available in public have recorded her appearance and fashions she has worn over a period of time, which are closely linked to her personal life.
Princess Anne is known for her no nonsense approach to fashion, preferring to wear clothes which are convenient instead of blindly apinng the latest fashion trends, which may be both expensive and unsuitable for a person who leads a busy outdoor life. The marriage of Princess Anne to Lieuetenant Mark Philips was a widely photographed event, with a photo gracing the cover of Vogue magazine. The cover photo which many fashion watchers remember even today and have retained as a collectible has a glowing princess, dressed in a white wedding dress, in the prime of her youth with a great figure.
Though they had many common interests, especially in horses, the couple drifted apart, since Mark Philips was not interested in many of the official duties which Princess Anne was supposed to participate in, and was formally divorced in 1992. The princess has since then remarried captain . Over the years her appearance has reflected her age, as she has aged gracefully. Her fashion style too has remained functional, suitable for the outdoor activities she is very fond of and her interaction with people. She has wisely chosen to ignore the criticism.
