'She is lovely!' Princess Anne stuns in tartan suit and earrings inspired by the Queen


    Yesterday, October 21, Princess Anne was at Plymouth’s Marine Research Centre, where she gave a talk to mark the launch of the National Centre for Coastal Autonomy, the UK’s first fully-integrated net zero autonomous observing and monitoring network. For the occasion, the Princess looked smart in a tartan jacket and matching trousers.

    Princess Anne donned a long, grey jacket featuring a subtle red tartan print as she stood at the lectern at the National Centre for Coastal Autonomy in Plymouth.

    The jacket had a pronounced collar and large grey buttons running down its centre.

    To match, the royal wore a pair of grey trousers with the same red checkered print.

    Underneath her jacket, it seemed the Princess was wearing a red, long sleeved top as only the end of the sleeves were visible.

    The royal completed her outfit with a silk scarf featuring a red, blue, white, and yellow pattern.

    This was tied around neck and underneath her jacket.

    Anne added black shoes to her look and a pair of black leather gloves.

    As for accessories, she carried a black leather handbag and wore tiny pearl stud earrings.


    The royal’s hair was in its usual updo at the back of her head, her grey locks kept in place by a hair grip.

    Anne is a fan of pearls and seems to wear her pearl earrings every day. This is perhaps inspired by her mother, who was also rarely seen without her pearls. 

    The Queen usually donned a pair of small pearl earrings, as well as her three-stranded pearl necklace.

    Interestingly, the royals’ love of pearls might be something to do with status, according to Arseniy Budrevich, jewellery expert and founder of Budrevich Fine Jewellery Studio.

    He told Express.co.uk: “Pearls have been associated with class, elegance and sophistication since the Ptolemaic dynasty in ancient Egypt, where the Royal Family wore pearls to show their status.

    “This tradition was then passed down through the holy Roman empire to the French monarchs who carried it into fashion in the middle ages, where it was subsequently dispersed through Europe.

    “This is when the British empire picked up the style.”

    Arseniy continued: “The Royal Family wears pearls to represent the aristocratic virtues of liberality, magnificence and generosity. They also symbolise purity and chastity.

    “The Queen was most often shown wearing pearls, usually wearing one of her sublime pearl necklaces with matching pearl brooch and earrings.”

    Royal fans were quick to praise Anne for her appearance at the centre yesterday.

    Ollie Thomas, who is a PhD student at Plymouth University, said: “It was an honour meeting HRH Princess Royal today at the @marineresplym smart sound event, and having a brief opportunity to chat about sea grass.”

    Professor Steve Widdicombe, who also works at the university, added: “Such an exciting new initiative for marine science in Plymouth, the wider South West region, and the whole of the UK. The energy, enthusiasm and spirit of collaboration in the room today was inspiring. What a great time to be a marine scientist.”
