Living up to her reputation as the hardest working royal, Princess Anne attended the World Horse Welfare Conference today, which is always a key date in the international equestrian calendar.
As president of the charity, the Princess Royal gave the closing speech at the conference. Looking smart in a navy jacket, she accessorised with a poppy and a golden brooch that’s shaped like a horse.
Princess Anne appears to have owned the brooch since the 1980s and has regularly worn the accessory for the races – including Cheltenham Festival and Royal Ascot.
It’s an incredibly fitting brooch for the Princess Royal, who had a successful equestrian career and was the first member of the royal family to compete in the Olympics, riding the Queen’s horse, Goodwill, in Eventing at the 1976 Games in Montreal. She also won a gold medal at the European Eventing Championships in 1971 and two silvers in 1975.
As well as giving a nod to her equestrian leanings, the brooch also oozes with symbolism. The horse is a universal symbol of freedom without restraint, which is perfectly in-keeping with Princess Anne’s character.
