PRINCESS ANNE has offered a rare insight into her private home as she celebrated one of her patronages – but some eagle-eyed royal fans could only focus on the “clutter” shown.
Princess Anne famously values her privacy and is rarely under the spotlight, carrying out much of her royal work behind the scenes and without media presence. However, she recently invited royal fans into her home to celebrate with her and her husband Sir Timothy Laurence the momentous victory of Scotland at the 150th Calcutta Cup.
After Scotland snatched the cup for the first time in 38 years by winning against the English rugby team yesterday, the Royal Family Twitter account shared a celebratory message on behalf of Princess Anne.
The tweet read: “As @Scotlandteam’s Patron, The Princess Royal often supports the team from the stands.
“HRH and Vice Admiral Sir Tim cheered Scotland on from home today as they played England for the Calcutta Cup, 150 years since their first match. Well played, Scotland!”
The tweet included a picture of the Princess Royal sitting next to her husband on a couch in her living room.
The couple smiled as they looked at the TV in the cosy room filled with books, statuettes of dogs and horses and paintings.
Royal fans were ecstatic to see the Princess Royal allowing people to take a peep into her home.
One wrote: “I bet Princess Anne is desperate to shout from the rooftops how much she enjoyed that win.
“What a great tweet from the Royal Family, and straight after the game.”
