Princess Anne debuted a completely new look this week as she stepped out with several members of the royal family in a gorgeous floral dress.

The 68-year-old swapped her usual casual style for a pretty navy frock covered with a pink and yellow floral pattern, as she joined her brother Prince Edward and niece Princess Beatrice for The Duke of Edinburgh Gold Awards Presentations.

The Queen’s daughter paired the pretty dress with a simple but classy cream jacket and black heels, while she accessorised with a pair of beautiful dangly earrings for the sunny day at Buckingham Palace.

It was a joyous event for the royal who attended with her brother Edward and Princess Beatrice. Anne flashed a big smile as she met with award recipients in the gardens and enjoyed a chat with Olympic gold medalist Sally Gunnell.

Matching her aunt’s elegance was Beatrice, who chose a floor-length blue dress for the occasion which showed off her figure, while she opted for flatter shoes to brave the grass lawns.

The Duke of Edinburgh Award was presented by Gunnell to a number of talented young people who have spent the last 12 months dedicating their time to volunteering and physical activities to build life skills.

“Several members of The Royal Family attended The Duke of Edinburgh Gold Awards Presentations today, to celebrate the achievements of young people,” a post shared on the royal family’s Instagram explained.

“Founded by The Duke of Edinburgh, in 1956, The @dofeuk is the world’s leading youth achievement award that develops over 400,000 young people for life and work every year in the UK.

“The Awards in the Gardens of Buckingham Palace today celebrate the work of young people who have achieved the Gold Award, which takes 12 months to complete.”

While the younger royals are often seen in the spotlight, Anne also spends much of her time attending events on behalf of the royal family. In fact according to The Telegraph, Queen Elizabeth’s four children carried out a combined calendar of 675 official working days last year, significantly more than the younger generation of working royals, including the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex.

But, according to statistics published in the Court Circular, the Princess Royal carried out the most royal duties in 2018, having worked a total of 180 days over the 12 month period.

The Duke of Cambridge carried out 120 days of duties last year, while his brother the Duke of Sussex is recorded as having worked just under 100 days. However the siblings carried out around 20 per cent more engagements in 2018 than they did the year before.

The newspaper also revealed that their wives – Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge – carried out a combined total of 100 working days, with many of these engagements including tours overseas and charitable work.
