Since Meghan Markle and her husband, Prince Harry, have stepped down from their royal duties, Queen Elizabeth II has found a reliable ally in her daughter, Princess Anne.
According to a royal expert, Princess Anne, who has been a hard-working member of the royal for the past 50 years, has no plans to slow down.
The absence of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and her spouse have made it possible for the Queen to appreciate her daughter’s work ethic and commitment fully.
According to royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams, Princess Anne is a crucially important member of the royal family.
Her tireless work ethic and commitment to the Crown are one of a kind and will be extremely valuable within the New Firm.
Fitzwilliams revealed: “The Princess Royal has a record of consistent excellence in the way she carries out her duties. She also continues to be an expert on equine matters. She summed her role up in a recent documentary celebrating her 70th birthday, saying ‘sitting still doesn’t happen very much.’
He added: “Her work for Save the Children is truly remarkable; it has been a 50-year stint, which has earned her widespread popular approval. There are now fewer senior working royals, and this level of commitment is extremely valuable to the Royal Family; she is clearly an indispensable member of the new inner circle of royals.”
In 2017, Princess Anne carried out 507 engagements, and in 2018 she took part in 521. Despite the pandemic, Princess Anne stepped up to make sure the holidays were special for the royal family.
Recent reports indicate that Princess Anne had some exciting things planned for her Christmas celebrations, but she was still responsible enough to maintain the requirements of social distancing and wanted to ensure that everyone stayed safe in the difficult situation.
The Princess Royal, 70, had a small gathering with her immediate family, including her husband, Timothy Laurence, and pregnant daughter, Zara Tindall, along with her grandchildren in order to keep things in line with the rules laid out by the government, which dictate how many people from different households are able to gather in one place.
Princess Anne has received a lot of praise from her followers for showing the kind of responsibility that other major world figures have apparently been unable to.
Many royal supporters have pointed out that if a major figure like her can endure the current limitations, then so should anyone else.
However, in the end, as expected, most sentiments still fell back on the idea that the ideal case would be if things just resumed to normal by the end of this year.
