Dressing aptly for the sombre occasion, the royal opted for a smart-casual ensemble, wearing cream trousers, a double-breasted blazer and an elegant open-collared blouse in a radiant yellow hue.
The Queen’s daughter added a chic black saddle bag to her look, accessorizing with delicate gold earrings and a simple gold chain necklace.

Netflix series The Crown’s hair and makeup department previously revealed it can take up to two hours to recreate the Princess Royal’s signature up-do on Erin Doherty, who plays teenage Anne in the hit series.
Anne revealed in an ITV documentary: “Actually I read an article the other day about the, I don’t watch Netflix and The Crown, but the actress was talking about how long it took them to do their hair like I did. And I’m thinking, ‘How could you possibly take that long?’ I mean, it takes me 10 or 15 minutes.”
