The pair are both patrons of different organisations, with Kate being a patron of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG), while the Princess Royal is a patron of the Royal College of Midwives (RCM). On Wednesday, the pair will visit the joint-headquarters of both the organisations, which was designed by the RCOG in order to foster collaboration across the sector.

The royal ladies are good friends

Princess Anne often tops the list for the hardest-working royal, and she carries out hundreds of engagements each year for some of the 300 charities and organisations she's involved with. She topped the list last year carrying out an astonishing 540 official duties both at home and overseas.

The royal is recently back from a royal tour of Australia and Papua New Guinea, and she looked so elegant on every day of the trip.

Anne was recently undertaking royal duties in Australia

Last week, she looked gorgeous as the royal wore a wrap blazer that cinched in at the waist, highlighting her feminine silhouette.

A trio of accent buttons added elegant detail to the royal's fit, which featured a creamy yellow hue with a flecked textured fabric.
