The Queen of the Princess – aka Princess Anne – turns 70 on August 15, and ITV marks the occasion with a documentary on the Queen’s only daughter, which is released tonight.
And we already had a quick tour of the program in which the Princess teaches the Queen how to use social media – in an enjoyable scene in which she helps the monarch make her first Zoom challenge during a lockdown.
The documentary will also show her how she speaks candidly about her life while growing up as a member of the royal family and beyond. But what do we know about the princess?
How old is Princess Anne and who is she married to?
Princess Anne, whose full name is Anna Elisabeth Alice Louise, is the second eldest of the Queen and Prince Philip’s children and their only daughter.
She was born on August 15, 1950 at the Clarence home, during the reign of her maternal grandfather, King George VI.
At the time of her birth, she was third in line to the throne after her mother and her older brother Prince Charles – but she is now 14th in line as of August 2019.
The princess has been married twice, first to Captain Mark Phillips – a former Olympic medal winner, whom she married in November 1973 at Westminster Abbey – in a ceremony that was shown around the world and attracted an audience of 100 million.
They had two children – a son, Peter, who is the eldest grandson of Queen Elizabeth, and a daughter, Zara.
Despite being members of the royal family, none of Anna’s children hold royal titles since Phillips turned down the award offered to him prior to their wedding.
The couple announced in 1989 that they had parted ways before eventually divorcing in 1992 – the same year that Princess Anne married her second husband, Sir Timothy Lawrence, a retired Royal Navy officer who was an honor officer (Royal Officer ) from the queen from 1986 to 1989.
What is Princess Anne’s net worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Princess Anne’s net worth is around $30 million (£23.1 million).
The princess is known for her charitable work, being involved in over 200 charities and organizations in an official capacity (including Save the Children, of which she has been president since 1970), and she hosts hundreds of royal events every year.
She is also the first member of the Royal Family to compete in the Olympics, taking part in the 1976 Montreal Games as part of the British Equestrian Team, and won silver and gold medals at the European Eventing Championships in both 1971 and 1975 …
