Princess Anne is often described as one of the hardest working members of the Royal Family. The only daughter of Her Majesty the Queen, Anne grew up alongside brothers Prince Charles, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward. She herself has two children, Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips.

It was done in order for them to live as "normal" lives as possible.
In interviews and documentaries, Anne often comes across as reserved, serious, and unafraid to say things as they are.
Her love of sports and equestrian has particularly solidified her as being perceived as a woman of guts and grit.

Peter said: "When she's in an environment of family and friends and so on, she definitely relaxes a lot more.
