Princess Anne opened a new carbon neutral facility at the Defence Animal Training Regiment this week, the Government’s Ministry of Defence has announced. The Princess was pictured speaking to the regiment’s staff and stroking the dogs at the establishment.
The Defence Animal Training Regiment is responsible for the training, support, and rehoming of all military animals in the British Armed Forces.
On Twitter today, the Ministry of Defence stated that Princess Anne had been at the establishment to open a new facility.
It said: “The 96 percent self-sustaining training centre is home to roughly 200 working dogs training in protection, explosives searches, and drugs operations.”
The caption came with a photo of Anne stroking what appeared to be a black Labrador at the facility.
On her feet were a pair of black brogue-like shoes with a small heel.
The Princess had tied her hair back in its signature bun and wore tiny dangling gold earrings.
Princess Anne’s hair has not changed in her 53 years as a working royal, as it is most definitely her favourite style.
The Princess Royal’s hair has been famously swept up in a beehive style for over five decades, and the fabulous bouffant has become legendary.
More recently, the height of the beehive is shorter.
Anne has been busy this week as she also visited the Royal College of Midwives and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists with the Duchess of Cambridge on Wednesday, April 27.
The Princess dazzled in a teal coat dress ad matching silk scarf.
Kate’s jacket was beige and featured a belt around its middle and a floral pattern on its chest.
Her skirt was the same colour and was slightly pleated.
She finished off the look with beige suede stiletto heels.
While Anne’s hair was pinned up at the top of her head, Kate’s flowed down over her shoulders and had been ironed straight – except for the slightly upturned ends.
This was a rare look for the Duchess, as she is usually seen flaunting waves.
