Normally, royal residences are decorated to be in keeping with their era, containing lots of antiques and traditional pieces of furniture.

While Anne's abode is filled with lots of historical pieces there is a mix of newer items too. She has a rather normal-looking flatscreen TV perched on a wooden cabinet, for example.

The royal also has statement furniture in an orange floral print and there is a modern-looking dog bed in the corner.

When this image of Anne's private residence was revealed, many were taken back by how untidy the room was.

However, considering #cluttercore is a trend we've seen sweeping Instagram and Tik Tok, some would argue that Anne's abode is bang on trend. The premise behind the look is the more things on display the better to express your personality.

Speaking to Countryfile, The Princess Royal spoke candidly about the farm on-site at her home: "It's really nice to come back and just be yourself in an area like this. Being able to take on a place like this – for me, I’ve got to make it work. This is not something that comes free, this has got to pay its way, otherwise I can’t stay here."

Princess Anne's children Zara and Peter are reported to live on-site too, in cottages within the grounds, along with their families.

The Queen's daughter also has a London apartment inside of St James's Palace, and she still uses it as her city base when in London. She is afforded the luxury because she is a working royal, making official engagements on behalf of the monarchy.
