Hardworking' Princess Anne's chic cropped white jacket balances elegance with wearability and is the kind of piece that could go with anything.
- Princess Anne's chic cropped white jacket looks to be inspired by Jackie Onasis's classic style.
- The Princess Royal was all smiles during the opening of a new visitor centre at an important historical location.
- In other royal news, ‘Gorgeous’ Prince George birthday photo taken by Kate Middleton has got fans seeing double as they notice royal resemblance.
Hilariously, the one question no reporter has 'the guts' to ask Princess Anne is related to her wardrobe - which is such a tease, if she's going to keep on pulling out looks like this.
It might seem left of field to think of the Queen's only daughter as a style icon, but she's always pushed the boundaries. After all, Princess Anne’s engagement rings both broke royal protocol.

The hardworking royal sported the stylish jacket during a trip to Chester House Estate, which has recently had a £15M glow up. According to the post on the Royal Family's Instagram account, the estate is a, "nationally significant heritage site," and, "one of the few places in the UK which can demonstrate over 10,000 years of human activity."
This development means that the public can learn all about the history and heritage of the important location, by visiting the sustainable destination, which will also house countrywide archaeological finds - including that of the Romans.
RRP: $180 / £99 | A collarless, cropped jacket is a brilliant swap for a cardigan and gives a more polish, tailored look. Great for formal summer events, the open design reveals the center front panel of your outfit, creating a figure-lengthening finish.
RRP: $270 / £129 | Great for formal occasions, a cropped jacket is the ideal cover-up over the best summer dresses. Offering upper arm coverage, the shorter hemline helps to highlight a waist and creates an hourglass silhouette.
RRP: £135 (UK only) | For something closer to a blazer, this ruched sleeve iteration gives the same sleek look but with a longer line finish. With more androgynous silhouette the hip-grazing length can be worn with trousers, skirts or dresses.
Princess Anne looked like she really enjoyed meeting men dressed as Roman Centurions, to mark the event, and was all smiles on the day. "Always looking great." commented one Instagram user. "Oh…wow that’s so beautiful 😍." added another.
Despite there being a sexist rule that stops Princess Anne from covering for the Queen, it's crystal clear that she's the hardest working royal and a hit with royal watchers. One fan commented, "Really like Princess Anne. Hardworking, no-nonsense Royal. Her children equally fabulous. ❤️"
