Princess Anne has impressed fans again with her commitment to the Royal Family, having added yet another patronage to her already busy work schedule. 

Having already been crowned the royal who worked the hardest in 2020, it looks like Princess Anne may be defending her title for another year. 

The Princess Royal has accepted the honor of being the first patron of The Remembrance Trust, a charity that seeks to unearth and restore the graves of British veterans. 

This latest appointment builds on an extensive list of patronages held by the second oldest of the Queen's children, who has long been hailed as one of the most committed members of the Royal Family. She has been particularly invested in military causes throughout her service, juggling various roles in the armed forces across the Commonwealth. Her patronage of The Remembrance Trust will see her raising the profile of the self-funded organization, with the ultimate aim of boosting its donations and the morale of its volunteers.

With so much experience in the field, it's no wonder that she's regularly spotted at events to honor and support the military.

Just last Thursday, she attended the RAF Cranwell's Officer Training Academy Graduation Parade. 

Dressed in a sky blue coat and matching fascinator, Princess Anne stepped out to congratulate the new officers on completing the intensive six-month-long program and to wish them luck as they embark on the next chapter of their career.

The monarch was also treated to an exciting performance at the graduation ceremony, courtesy of the young cadets themselves. She then presented the Jackie Moggirdge Spitfire Award—founded in memory of the late pioneering pilot—to Senior Aircraftwoman Megan Gammon. The prestigious accolade, which came in the form of a silver airplane trophy, recognized the 'determination, skills, enthusiasm and teamwork' demonstrated by the General Technician Mechanical throughout her Specialist Professional Training.

Princess Anne's exciting appearance at the event came after a busy week of equally important public engagements. She met Citizens Advice staff and students at an electromechanical company on Wednesday, after visiting a 3D printing company and a charity reception on Monday. Anne didn't take the weekend off either, opting to spend Saturday and Sunday with Royal Navy Sailors and Royal Marines off the Scottish coast. 

Her hard work hasn't gone unnoticed by fans, with many taking to Twitter and Instagram to laud the 70-year-old's driven attitude. 

"The Princess Royal never disappoints! ❤️" one person wrote. 

"Sorry Your Majesty but your daughter is my favourite royal—she is amazing. Her energy and commitment to her charities/services are an example to everyone. She looked as though she loved every minute and the troops did too. Genuine affection on all sides," another inspired follower said.

The gracious aristocrat, who is involved with more than 300 organizations, has such a lofty reputation that it's even been speculated she could take over Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's retracted patronages. With her 'fuss-free' disposition, Princess Anne 'commands the respect' needed to honor Prince Philip and to uphold the legacy of the Royal Family, according to royal insiders. While the Queen reportedly already knows who she will assign the patronages to, her final decision has yet to be made public.
