‘Lost in admiration’ Princess Anne amazes with 20 engagements in just four days


It is a schedule that has left royal staff “lost in admiration” as, contrasting to other senior royals, Princess Anne gets on with her schedule with a minimum of fuss, sources have stated.

Despite being five years over the official age of retirement, she is consistently one of the hardest working members of the Royal Family.

The Princess Royal represents the Queen both at home and abroad, attending state and ceremonial occasions, conducting investitures and supporting more than 300 charities, organisations and military regiments.

To mark the Queen’s historic 70 years on the throne, she was asked to represent her mother by visiting Sydney and Papua New Guinea, where the Queen is still head of state.

Her punishing schedule started on Thursday last week following a full day of engagements in Liverpool after which she flew by helicopter back to the capital and boarded a commercial flight to Sydney at Heathrow.

She was accompanied by her husband, Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence and her private secretary Charles Davies.

She flew to Australia without a stop-over and arrived in Sydney at 5am on Saturday.

By 9.30am Anne was at her first engagement – an audience with the Governor of New South Wales.

Monday saw Anne pack in engagements in both Sydney – where she undertook military engagements and inspected a guard of honour – and Papua New Guinea where she met the nation’s Prime Minister, His Excellency The Honourable James Marape.

On Tuesday, her punishing schedule was complete with eight engagements including a visit to a girls boarding school and a war cemetery before the visit was rounded off wit dinner with Mr Marape.
