The Princess Royal stepped out in the most perfect autumnal coat on Tuesday, as she attended the Reformation Parade of Number 30 Squadron.

Anne, 71, wrapped up in a rust-coloured double-breasted coat for her royal engagement, and accessorising with a gold RAF brooch to represent her role as Honorary Air Commodore of RAF Brize Norton.

Princess Anne's hair was teased up in her signature 'do for the event. Jessica Patching, founder of Marla Hair gave us an insight into the style of her iconic mane. "Princess Anne has always worn her hair in a classic 1920's style throughout her whole royal working life. From French pleats to twisted updos, each style she has worn has had lots of volume from the roots and usually brushed back off her face. With each style she has worn it so very elegant and gracefully."

The royal family's Twitter account shared photos from the Princess Royal's visit, adding: "The airmen and women of the Squadron will operate the @RoyalAirForce’s A400M Atlas, which can carry up to 37 tonnes' worth of aircraft and personnel."

In images shared by RAF Brize Norton's Twitter page, Anne even posed for a group photo with the Number 30 Squadron.

Just like the Duchess of Cambridge, Anne has perfected the art of literal dressing.

She joined the Earl and Countess of Wessex and the Queen's cousins on the opening day of the Chelsea Flower Show last week, wearing a pale blue floral embroidered coat dress, accessorising with a diamond and pearl floral brooch.
