"It was wonderful to hear from the young people about the great impression Her Royal Highness made on them by listening to their stories. Thank you to everyone who helps us make a difference."

The Queen's daughter often strikes us as an unexpected style symbol, and we love her effortless ability to accessorise with statement pieces to elevate any look.

Silk ties are considered a very stylish addition to any wardrobe and the royal often uses one to add a pop of colour to her look. Anne is also a fan of knee-high boots, both practical and fashionable, adding elegance to her outfits.
