I would love to know if Princess Anne has any servants?

Or are you searching for a new job, Eddie?

Hehe Teddy, i'm very undomesticated so don't think I would be eligible. I only learnt how to boil an egg yesterday....!

OK so the general consensus is that she is is highly regarded for her hard work but could do better in the general niceties and wardrobe departments!!! I guess I just feel that she is rather overlooked and marginalized! But thanks for all the positive comments!

Eddie I am curious as to know why your interested in Anne's staff situation! I believe she has a modest household!

Toots, just me being nosey!

No I just wondered what her home set up is, maybe she runs Gatcombe like the Queen Mother ran Clarence House with bevvies of servants and ladies-in-waiting?! Or maybe hubby does the cooking & cleaning? I think it should be a household fit for a Princess Royal!

I agree with the statement said earlier.. The Princess Royal is a lot like her Father, but I think she's like her mother in the sense that she's kept her "feelings" private and done her job first.  She obviously is a wonderful mother and  i think her no nonsense upfront personality kind of reminds me of what i've read of HM Queen Mary.  Duty First, everything else second. 

TRH The Princess Royal and Princess Alexandra Should both be honored for the Lifetime of service to the Crown, the people of the Nation & commonwealth and HM the Queen.  Niether have been tainted with scandal, sure the Princess Royal divorced her first husband, but that was her own private affair and she handled it privatley and with 100% perfection imo.  As far as the wardrobe goes, The Queen Mother never changed her Style and neither did Queen mary, so i don't see why people are always hounding Princess Anne.  If she did always go out and buy new clothes, people would then be wanting to know How much they cost and where the funding came from. etc..

HRH 's work is what is important and her devotion to her JOb and the British people is what should be important, not what she wears.  3 Cheers to both The Princess Royal and Princess Alexandra

I believe Anne's household is relatively modest.  Her elder brother, The Duke of York's household, has a Private Secretary and Asst. Secretary, a Comptroller, an Equerry & temporary Equerry, an Office Assistant, and a handful of personal staff including a cook and butler.  Anne's household must be similar.

She no doubt has a cook, housekeepers/housemaids, as well as gardening staff.  Her office would include at least one private secretary and ladies-in-waiting, and perhaps a Comptroller / someone to handle her finances (since official/private expenses would have to be tracked separately).  Gatcombe Park is not a large house (in royal terms), and Anne doesn't appear to entertain officially there, so there would be little need for an army of servants such as footmen, butlers and large kitchen staff.  I bet her stable staff at Gatcombe would be larger than her indoor staff!!

And of course, like two of her brothers she also has an apartment at BP, but I believe the staff that look after her rooms and needs there would be part of the Queen's household rather than her own.

I must say with much surprise that the Princess Royal's appearance and clothing choices at Royal Ascot have been MAGNIFICENT ! ! !

I'm wondering what's got into her? Did she hire a stylist? Barrow her mother's stylist? She has never, ever looked better. A very conservative dresser she's been wearing some wonderful and colorful outfits. And, her hat choices have been just as beautiful.

Looking good, Princess Anne, looking royally good!

Thank you Lucien, I wish she had worn a dress! With a nice hat & elegant shoes - the troops would have appreciated that far more i'm sure!

Even though it was sunny I bet it is still quite chilly out there at this time of year! I did like her shoe-boot things though! They look like Mr Men clompers and I want a pair! The spaniel looked very friendly too!
