On Monday evening, Princess Anne joined other members of the royal family at the very first autumn RHS Chelsea Flower Show, held at the Royal Hospital Chelsea. The show is usually held in the summer months, but due to the pandemic, it was postponed slightly. We are so pleased to see one the Queen's favourite events back and in full swing!

Although there isn't a formal dress code when it comes to the show, lots of people tend to dress up for the event, sporting their best summer dresses and smart shirts. Princess Anne was a great example of this. The 71-year-old looked delightful as she arrived, wearing a gorgeous outfit that consisted of a pale blue floral embroidered coat dress, accessorising with a diamond and pearl floral brooch.
She carried a navy suede clutch bag and wore matching heels and gloves, finishing her look with a pop of red lipstick.

While she was there, the mother-of-two had a tour of the RHS Queen’s Green Canopy Garden, which highlights the importance of trees and woodlands to the environment. The QGC is a tree planting initiative celebrating Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee next Summer, by inviting people across the United Kingdom to plant trees from October, through to the end of 2022. Anne also had a look at the Guide Dogs’ 90th Anniversary Garden.
