Facts About Princess Anne, Queen Elizabeth II’s Overlooked Daughter
Princess Anne, the only daughter of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, may not receive as much scrutiny from the general public as her older brother Prince Charles or nephews Prince William and Prince Harry, but she's still had an eventful life. From making the British Olympic team as an equestrian, to nearly being kidnapped just weeks after her wedding, to being nominated for a Nobel Prize, the Princess Royal has packed a lot of living into her years.
Blunt and often sharp-tongued, and with little use for pretense, she is considered one of the most popular members of the British royal family in the eyes of the general public and has earned the informal title of being the hardest-working royal. And she managed to carry out her royal duties while providing her children with a fairly normal childhood (well, as normal as one can have as a member of the British royal family), keeping them more or less out of the spotlight.
