Today, Princess Anne proved that she is the original recycle royal. She stepped out wearing a green coat that she has had since 2015 and showed her thrifty skills.
The Queen’s only daughter, 71, looked elegant as she attended the Sovereigns Parade at Royal Military Academy Sandhurst today in Camberley.
The inaugural commissioning parade of RMAS was held 1948 at the Royal Palace in London. His Majesty King George VI was present and decreed that the parade be known as The Sovereigns Parade.
While Princess Anne attended her sixth commissioning parade, as the Sovereign’s Representative of the Sovereign, the Queen was at Windsor Castle for light duties. She has not been to the event in several years.

As she passed officers wearing uniforms, the Queen’s Daughter wore the mint green coat and black nubuck knee high boots.
Her fingers were kept warm by a pair leather gloves. She was carrying a bag that had a fringed zipper and matched it to her boots.
The Princess completed the look with a brown fur cap to finish her long hair.
Anne is well known for choosing discreet accessories. One example of this was a set of elegant drop earrings made from gold that sparkled in cold Camberley sunlight.
While passing the officers in the morning parade, Monarch’s Daughter looked calm.
As she was being greeted by officers, she also pin a brooch in the shape of a leaf to her collar.
The Royal, shown here, received appointments as General and Air Chief Marshall to celebrate her 70th Birthday in August 2020. She also reviewed officers during the visit.

In July 1948, the first Commissioning Parade of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst took place in His Majesty King George VI’s presence. He decreed that from now on the Parade would be called The Sovereign’s Parade.
For the training of Artillery officers and Engineers, the first Royal Military Academy was founded at Woolwich in 1741.
Royal Military College (RMC), founded in 1802, was home to both Infantry and Cavalry officers. The College moved from Sandhurst in 18.12.
After WW2, the RMA and RMC were merged to form the present Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.
More than 300 charitable organisations, military regiments and charities are involved in Princess Anne’s work.
