Many royals have found themselves in the public limelight as the coronation approaches. The two main protagonists on the big day will obviously be King Charles and Queen Camilla, but Princess Anne will also be of tremendous interest.
Despite the terrible times the Royal Family has been through recently, the daughter of Queen Elizabeth II and sister of King Charles, who was given the title Princess Royal in 1987, has generally kept quiet, completing her normal obligations.
The princess has decided to speak out on the monarchy’s destiny just days before the coronation.
She turns out to be completely opposed to one aspect of Charles’ approach.
Princess Anne has always lived her life in the spotlight as a senior member of the Royal Family. However, she has never been the sort to make headlines for her career, but rather for her personal life and interests.
In her youth, Anne may have been more concerned with having fun and enjoying herself than with her royal duties. Nonetheless, she became – and continues to be – one of the most hardworking royals in the entire family.
Though she supports her elder brother, King Charles, they do not always agree on how the monarchy should be established in the future.
The story of the Princess Royal is fascinating. She is Queen Elizabeth II’s second-eldest child, but she is currently ranked 16th in the line of succession. So, how does that happen?
Let’s look at Princess Anne’s life and what she’ll be doing at King Charles’ coronation on May 6.
In fact, Charles is reported to have given the captain a nasty moniker.
“The Royal Family was not particularly kind to Mark Phillips.” “I heard Prince Charles christened his brother-in-law ‘Fog’ because he was dense and thick — not much going on,” Kay explained.
“Andrew and Edward were young then, and they used to have a joke,” Paul Burrell continued. ‘Let’s see how long it is before Foggy mentions a horse,’ they’d say, and they’d time him to the second.”
Not long after her divorce from Mark, Princess Anne remarried. She married Sir Timothy Laurence in a Church of Scotland ceremony at Crathie Kirk in 1992.
Savannah Phillips, born in December 2010, Isla, born in March 2012, Mia, born in January 2014, Lena, born in June 2018, and Lucas, born in March 2021 are her grandchildren.
Zara, Anne’s daughter, pursued a successful riding career like her mother. She took silver in the 2012 Olympics in London. Anne was the one who bestowed the medal on her.
Mark Phillips married equestrienne Sandy Pflueger in 1997, but the couple split in 2012.
Anne and Laurence are still happily married, and he has apparently become a much-loved family member over the years.
