The official Royal Family account, which focuses on the work of the queen, her children and grandchildren, looked back on the biggest outfits of Princess Anne in the past 50 years.
The style celebration anticipates the appearance of the Princess Royal during London Fashion Week later today, where she will present the Queen Elizabeth Award for British Design.

The queen awarded Richard Quinn the same prize when she attended her first London Fashion Week in 2018. She was sitting in the front row next to Dame Anna Wintour.
But today it is her 69-year-old daughter who is in the spotlight.
Nine of Princess Anne’s most memorable looks were shared on the occasion, ranging from casual shirts to impressive Ascot hats.
The looks show Anne’s love for bright colors, matching ensembles and a statement accessory.
While the princess was more experimental with style as a young woman, in recent years she has become known for her sparing approach to fashion and is often seen in wearing favorite pieces from her wardrobe.
