Princess Anne has been experimenting with her style recently, donning white flares and jazzy check trousers for two recent engagements, but a trip to the Forest of Dean saw the Princess Royal return to a statement look she has worn many times over the years.

The 73-year-old was attending the opening of a community hospital in the area, and opted for a summer-ready ensemble of a jaunty yellow jacket, paired with a ditzy floral print dress.

Princess Anne added a chunky gold chain necklace and dangly earrings, as well as navy blue gloves, to keep off the chill given that it's rather cold, despite being mid-June.

Eagle-eyed Anne watchers might remember that the royal wore the exact same outfit in July 2021, right down to the brooch pinned to her lapel. She wore it again during in September 2021, during an engagement with her sister-in-law, Duchess Sophie.
