On This Day

In 1987 Princess Anne was given the title Princess Royal.

She is Colonel-in-Chief of the Royal Signals and I met her a few times and was quite taken with her down to earth attitude. On one occasion when we lived in the mountains of Cyprus my wife commented that it was the only place where you could get fresh brussel sprouts Anne's comments was "come to Sandringham, all you can see is bloody brussel sprouts".

Her security detail also reckoned she held the record for the quickest drive between Salisbury and Blandford Camp, a trip she does regularly, so watch out if you on that road.
