Princess Anne, 72, proved her sartorial prowess on Sunday as she stepped out in the spring sunshine beside her royal family. 

The sister of King Charles III looked immaculate in a crisp bouclé pinafore-style coat, complete with a flattering front panel adorned with oversized cream buttons and a romantic puffed collar. The royal mother-of-two added a set of perfectly coordinated navy accessories, including slick leather gloves, elegant navy heels, a suede clutch bag and a striking boater hat complete with fabulously feathered detailing.

Princess Anne styled her raven hair in her signature chignon style, highlighting her ageless beauty glow with a rosy blush and slick of timeless red lipstick.

The late Queen Elizabeth II's daughter opted for a most striking brooch to complete her unrivalled appearance; a gold pin featuring layered palms clasped around a cluster of rubies and sapphires.

Princess Anne is rarely seen without a glittering brooch to accompany her outfits, many of which have been treasured in her archive for several decades. 

One of the Princess Royal's favourite brooches is a dazzling gold ribbon knot brooch, set with 12 diamonds. Anne was first photographed wearing the classic piece when the Royal Family welcomed Apollo 8 mission Commander, Colonel Frank Borman, to Buckingham Palace in 1969.

The late Queen's daughter has also worn the brooch for several other high-profile outings, including in Washington D.C. in 2014 and the ANZAC Day service in 2015, and accessorised her outfit for Royal Ascot with the dazzling jewel in 2016. 

The brooch has also been her statement piece of choice for Easter Sunday services at Windsor in both April 2017 and 2018.

The annual Easter service at St George's Chapel is an important fixture in the royal family's calendar. This year's service was particularly poignant seeing as it marked the first Easter service since Queen Elizabeth II's death, and the second anniversary of Prince Philip's passing. 

Despite the bittersweet occasion, the royal family were out in full force, including the Prince and Princess of Wales' youngest son, Prince Louis, who made a charming debut at his first Easter Mattins service.
