Princess Anne made a visit to Jersey on Thursday, looking lovely in her green satin dress as she carried out a number of official engagements.

The royal added a chic white blazer, navy handbag and her signature sporty sunglasses to her look as she arrived via helicopter for the visit, which had previously been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

During her visit to the school, Anne joined a cooking lesson with Year 7 pupils, who served up tomato soup, stuffed peppers and shortbread.

Later, she attended a church service at St Saviour's Parish Church, before making her way to Government House where she met Jersey Field Squadron personnel and their families. Finally, as patron, she visited wildlife charity Durrell to open the butterfly and tortoise house.

Anne's pretty new green dress seems to be a new addition to her wardrobe, which she also wore to Royal Ascot recently.

The Queen's daughter opted for a gold leaf brooch and wore a smart cream hat with her silky frock, also sporting a pin showing her allegiance to the Jockey Club, of which she is a member.

With a chic collar, button-up detail and subtle puffed sleeves and shoulders, it's a dress we could also imagine the Duchess of Cambridge wearing! No doubt the Princess Royal will make good use of it in her wardrobe, since she's known to recycle her favourite outfits for various engagements.
