Gold, red and blue, the show-stopping patterned accessory complemented Anne's muted look, adding an even greater air of elegance to her outfit.

Throughout her life, the Princess has been seen sporting chic scarves, which are one of her favourite ways to pep up a look.

But our favourite of all has to be the silk patterned necktie she wore on her first solo Royal Tour in 1971.

To mark the Princess Royal's 70th birthday in August, the royal family shared a series of incredible throwback photos of Anne throughout the years, including some of her touring Kenya.
