Princess Anne’s tight friendship with lesser-known royals is revealed in a newly discovered bridesmaid portrait.
PRINCESS Because of her sense of responsibility and laid-back manner, Anne has garnered the adoration of royal enthusiasts.
The Princess Royal, 70, has demonstrated her dependability and trustworthiness since she was a child. Princess Alexandra asked her to be her primary bridesmaid when she was just twelve years old.
When Anne’s mother’s cousin married Sir Angus Ogilvy, she took on a big burden.
The royal couple married in front of the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, and Princess Margaret in Westminster Abbey in 1963.
Anne and Alexandra are photographed admiring a gold bangle given to Alexandra as a present on that day.
The Queen’s cousin, Princess Alexandra, is the daughter of Prince George, Duke of Kent.
Prince George was Edward VIII’s and George VI’s younger brother.
She has two brothers, Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, and Prince Michael of Kent, and is known as The Honourable Lady Ogilvy.
Princess Alexandra has grown in prominence as a working royal since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle left the Firm.
The outbreak of the coronavirus compelled several of the lesser-known royals to step up to assist the Queen with her royal responsibilities.
Last week, Alexandra bestowed a new patronage on Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, who has also stepped up to aid in recent times.
