The Princess Royal was among the many members of the Royal Family who attended the Coronation Lunches across the country on Sunday, May 7, 2023.

The Princess Royal And Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence attended a Coronation Big Lunch street party in Swindon the day after the King's Coronation on Sunday, May 7. The royal couple looked cheery as they chatted with attendees and enjoyed cups of tea with the members of the community who worked together to throw this celebratory street party.

The Princess looked casual and chic as she wore a multi-colored striped shirt underneath a cream-textured cropped blazer and a pair of navy slacks. The Princess added a chic twist to her look as she upturned the collar of her shirt - creating a very stylish look to her outfit. The collared shirt is the perfect way for the Princess to maintain her sensible style choices, while also adding a little color or personality to her fashion choices.
