For the fifth year running Princess Anne has proved to be the hardest working member of the Royal family (or the firm as it’s affectionately know by Prince Philip). According to figures released by Buckingham Palace, apart from being a tireless charity worker, the Queen’s only daughter carried out over six hundred official engagements last year. Princess Anne obviously takes after her hardworking mother. The Queen is still working as hard as ever, carrying out over four hundred official engagements last year and shows no signs of slowing down at 81 years old. Princess Anne has always had a strong work ethic and believes that members of the Royal family should earn their keep. The British public is said to consider the Princess Royal (Princess Anne) the Royal family’s most valuable asset after the Queen.
