H.R.H Princess Anne The Princess Royal - Early days


Engaged - Her Royal Highness the Princess Anne and Lieutenant Mark Phillips Princess Anne and has often been chided for her dress sense and interest in fashion. The fact is Princess Anne is a classic no nonsense dresser and likes to stick with styles she feels happiest wearing.  Those styles work well for her life of meeting people and they also give her years of wear. 

She has had an enviable figure for many years and during her engagement to Lieutenant Mark Phillips she was photographed.  She revealed herself as a dazzling young woman. 

The images of Princess Anne stunned me at the time, yet these same photos of her are often long forgotten probably because she divorced Mark Phillips and moved on to a new marriage.

Her Royal Highness the Princess Anne married Lieutenant Mark Phillips on November 14, 1973.

Her Royal Highness the Princess Anne married Lieutenant Mark Phillips on November 14, 1973.  Despite their common love of horses Mark Phillips never enjoyed attending official duties with the princess and after growing apart in April 1992 they divorced.  

Later that year in December 1992 and by then known as the Princess Royal, the princess married Captain Timothy Laurence.  The marriage took place in Scotland very quietly without pomp or great ceremony.

Princess Anne Images

These are images from 1973. I've kept the pictures for years, because I though Princess Anne looked so radiant. This Vogue cover I've photographed looks wonderful framed.
