The 70-year-old royal looked elegant in a smart tweed blazer layered over a simple black dress, adding a pair of chic black gloves to complete the look.

But it was her special mask that caught royal fans' eyes, opting for a vibrant charity face covering that showed her support for the Injured Jockeys Fund.

Keen equestrian Anne, who is Patron of the charity, first debuted the face covering at Royal Ascot, wearing it for all three days she attended the races. Our favourite look has to be when she teamed it with a lemon yellow suit and a feather embellished hat.

The Princess Royal's latest royal engagement on Monday saw her tour the £21 million facility (an ambulance, fire and police station all in one), which has been open since late 2019.
