The Princess Royal didn’t join the King and Queen at the coronation concert at Windsor Castle the day after they were crowned.It’s thought that Princess Anne took a practical approach as she had a busy schedule of engagements including one the next morning. This royal news comes as we revealed Queen Camilla’s secret coronation dress detail you may have missed,
King Charles and Queen Camilla’s coronation day certainly provided fans with plenty of memorable moments. From the moment Prince Louis disappeared during the ceremony to the first glimpse of some fabulous outfits like Queen Camilla’s coronation dress and Carole Middleton’s electric blue look, there was so much to take in.
- Princess Anne gave fans a particularly stand-out moment when she rode on horseback to Buckingham Palace behind the King and Queen in the Gold State Coach.
- She was awarded the special role of “Gold-Stick-In-Waiting” by the monarch and led the procession of the Armed Forces.
- However, whilst she might’ve been seen prominently throughout the coronation day itself, Princess Anne skipped the coronation concert the next day.
And she’s believed to have done so for the most Princess Anne reason ever! (Image credit: Photo by Dan Mullan/Getty Images) The Princess Royal is one of the most senior members of the immediate and extended Royal Family but she was notably absent from the stands at the coronation concert held at Windsor Castle on May 7. Her daughter and son-in-law Zara and Mike Tindall were there, as were her son Peter Phillips and his girlfriend Lindsay Wallace, the King, Queen and the Wales family. (Image credit: Photo by Leon Neal/Getty Images) The next day the King’s sister was back out and about as she attended a special Service of Thanksgiving. Princess Anne lives at Gatcombe Park in Gloucestershire and given she had to be at Gloucester Cathedral the next morning, it might simply have made more sense to travel home rather than back to London and back out again even earlier the day after the concert.
In contrast, other royals at the concert like the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh also appeared publicly the next day but not until later on in the day and closer to Windsor. The Princess Royal hasn’t confirmed that these logistical reasons inspired her decision to skip the concert. However, if she did miss it so that she would definitely be there on time for her engagement in Gloucester on May 7, this practical decision inspired by hard work couldn’t be more *her*.
Today we held a special service as part of #TheBigHelpOut, during which we celebrated the Coronation and gave thanks to the many volunteers across the city, county and diocese. It was an honour to welcome HRH The Princess Royal to this service. (1/2) pic.twitter.com/qsoTtAVSMw May 8, 2023 See more For multiple years in a row Princess Anne has been found to be the most hard-working royal and regularly has a packed schedule of engagements across the UK and internationally.
- She’s also known for her non-nonsense, practical attitude and previously declared to Vanity Fair she’d have probably been an engineer if she wasn’t a royal.
- Princess Anne’s engagement the day after the coronation concert saw her meeting and recognizing the dedicated work of volunteers from Gloucestershire at Gloucester Cathedral.
She also attended a special service as part of the Big Help Out national volunteering initiative which thanked volunteers from the city, county and diocese and was led by the Dean of Gloucester, Andrew Zihni.

Who is the lady in Waiting to Sophie Wessex?
Meghan Markle & Kate Middleton Honor Queen With Jewelry at Procession It’s common knowledge by now that 1992 wasn’t a banner year for Britain’s royal family. Dubbed an annus horribilis by Queen Elizabeth II herself, those scandal-plagued 12 months bore witness to, not only a fire at Windsor Castle, but also the end of all three of her married children’s marriages.
Those unions had imploded long before, but it was in 1992 that Princess Anne finalized her divorce from Mark Phillips (and remarried that same year), while Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York and now- King Charles III and Princess Diana announced their separations (and both couples eventually divorced).
That would be a lot for any family, let alone one of the most visible dynasties in the world. Only Prince Edward managed to not get divorced in 1992, but that’s because he wasn’t married yet. In fact, Edward, the youngest of the queen and Prince Philip ‘s four children, wasn’t even dating his future wife, Sophie Rhys-Jones, yet.
A Cambridge graduate and Royal Marine training dropout, Edward wildly diverged from the path trod by his father and brothers by becoming a production assistant at Andrew Lloyd Webber ‘s Really Useful Theater Company in the 1980s and then forming his own entertainment company, Ardent Productions, in 1993.
That’s also the year he reunited with Rhys-Jones, a public relations executive whom he first crossed paths with in 1987—when he was dating her friend. (Not an uncommon launch pad for future romance in his family: Charles first dated Diana’s older sister, now Lady Sarah McCorquodale, while Princess Anne dated future Queen Consort Camilla ‘s first husband, Andrew Parker Bowles, in the early 1970s.
Press Association via AP Images Sophie and Edward—by then 29 but not under as much pressure to settle down as his eldest brother Charles had been as he approached 30—saw each other at a Real Tennis charity event in 1993 and started dating. As the baby of the family and so far the least scandalous of the bunch, Edward enjoyed a certain amount of privacy, but he knew that when it comes to royal romance all bets are off.
When he called Sophie at work he would say it was “Richard” phoning, and they took pains to avoid photographers while venturing out together. The proudly shameless News of the World, which closed after a century in 2011 after the publication was caught up in a hacking scandal, was the first to give their relationship front-page treatment in December 1993.
But in part because he had just watched all three of his siblings’ marriages not work out in spectacular fashion, Edward was in no rush to take the next step. According to biographer Ingrid Seward ‘s 1995 book Prince Edward, “Like all couples, there were moments when the effort of adjusting led to rows and disagreements and, in the summer of 1994, came precariously close to parting.” Meanwhile, Sophie started her own PR firm in 1996 and started walking the walk of a future member of the royal family, the local papers enjoying her normal-girl background (grew up in Kent in a four-bedroom 17th-century farmhouse, higher education at West Kent College, descendant of King Henry IV, 1399-1413) and speculating constantly about the state of their relationship.
Edward continued to bide his time, waiting until the end of 1998 to pop the question. His proposal included a ring with a two-carat oval diamond, flanked by two heart-shaped gemstones and set in 18-carat white gold, by royal jeweler Asprey and Garrard.
Of course, before he proposed, Edward sought the OK from his mother, the queen’s approval being No.1 on the list of to-dos before anything could be made official. Happily for all involved, the queen liked her future daughter-in-law quite a bit. While 1992 may have seemed like a low, Diana’s death in 1997 shook the entire foundation of the royal family.
The tragedy left then-15-year-old Prince William and 12-year-old Prince Harry without a mother and the usually pitch-perfect queen grappling with how to grieve in public after decades of getting used to doing no such thing—including when her father, King George VI, died in 1952 and she ascended to the throne at 25.
- With Diana’s millions of fans clamoring for more emotion from the royal family, the queen met them as far as her position allowed, delivering a touching public address on Sept.5, five days after the princess’ fatal accident.
- We have all been trying in our different ways to cope,” the monarch said.
- It is not easy to express a sense of loss, since the initial shock is often succeeded by a mixture of other feelings—disbelief, incomprehension, anger and concern for those who remain.
We have all felt those emotions in these last few days. So what I say to you now, as your queen and as a grandmother, I say from my heart.” It’s also fathomable that Edward may not have wanted to propose to Sophie directly in the wake of one of the most shocking deaths of a public figure in recent memory (or, 25 years later, ever), especially one that came as close to ripping his family apart as it did,
- Edward himself got on fine with Diana, but they weren’t particularly close.
- But either way, perhaps he was waiting for a more tasteful time to lock it down with Sophie for the world to see.
- Edward and Sophie’s engagement was finally announced on Jan.6, 1999.
- And joyful the news was.
- The queen showed her support for her son’s girlfriend early on, breaking her own rules by allowing Sophie stay overnight at Buckingham Palace in the royal apartments—where all of her kids maintained a residence—before she and Edward were married.
Asked during their first joint interview after their engagement how she felt about joining the royal family, Sophie told the BBC, “It is slightly nerve-racking in many ways. But I am ready for it now and I am fully aware of the responsibilities.” Anwar Hussein/WireImage The couple tied the knot on June 19, 1999, in a first-time-for-everything evening ceremony (as opposed to the midday nuptials that prompt all those morning coats and brightly colored fascinators—in fact, the couple requested no hats, to emphasize the more “casual” vibe they were going for) at St.
George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. Sophie wore a gown by Samantha Shaw and a tiara from the queen’s private collection. Before they walked down the aisle, the queen gave Edward the title of Earl of Wessex, making Sophie the Countess of Wessex. (Sarah Sienesi, Sophie’s flatmate from her first days starting out in PR, became her lady-in-waiting.) Roughly 200 million people caught at least some of the ceremony on TV, but the bride and groom wanted an apolitical affair, so luminaries such as Prime Minister Tony Blair were not on the guest list.
The at-home audience was in for a bit of a letdown, anyway, because the Wessexes did not go in for the public kiss on the steps of the chapel after their I-dos—though that gesture, however sweet, isn’t necessarily a harbinger of happiness, The queen hosted their wedding reception at Windsor Castle that evening.
Heartbreak befell the couple when Sophie had an ectopic pregnancy in 2001 and needed surgery to remove the fetus, after which she took a long break from public appearances to recover, but she and Edward were determined to start a family. Their daughter, Lady Louise Windsor, was born prematurely on Nov.8, 2003, after Sophie suffered a placental abruption and required an emergency C-section.
The new mom remained in the hospital (Frimley Park, in Surrey) for several weeks before being well enough to go home, only after which did she and Edward announce their baby girl’s name. Their son James, Viscount Severn, was born on Dec.17, 2007, also via C-section at Frimley Park Hospital.
Max Mumby/Indigo/Getty Images The queen and Sophie—who until Charles married Camilla in 2005 remained her only daughter-in-law—grew ever closer, though it’s not as if there hasn’t been any reason for the queen to invoke her stiff upper lip since her youngest son finally settled down. In 2001, before her medical troubles, Sophie was purportedly recorded telling an undercover reporter from News of the World (who was posing as an international businessman) that if he used her PR firm, R-JH, he would benefit because of her prominence as a member of the royal family.
Not exactly selling access (as Andrew’s ex-wife the Duchess of York would appear to do later in 2010, though she insisted it was a misunderstanding) but a huge no-no to even invoke royal connections. She also supposedly referred to the queen as “old dear” and slammed some government figures (also a no-no for the royals to talk politics).
It was subsequently reported that Sophie sent apology letters to whomever she may have offended. Buckingham Palace stood up for her, though, denying the existence of those letters and saying in a statement, “The Countess of Wessex, who is trying to pursue her own career, is obviously vulnerable to set-ups such as this.” Still, Sophie shuttered R-JH Publicity in 2002.
Danny Martindale/WireImage Meanwhile, Edward’s Ardent Productions was never a financial success, and was most infamous for a 1987 competition special called It’s a Royal Knockout that featured Andrew, then-wife Sarah and Princess Anne competing in physical challenges—and which Charles smartly refused to have any involvement with at all.
In 2001, Charles was reportedly rather livid when a two-man crew from his brother’s company were accused of trying to gain access to 19-year-old Prince William at university for a documentary—a violation of the guidelines Charles had set in place for all media coverage of his children while they were at school.
Edward apologized to the queen and promised not to try to make any more shows about the family. “I can confirm that our energies will be put into the drama and film areas,” Ardent chairman Malcolm Cockren stated at the time, per the Telegraph, With Charles being of the opinion (presumably shared by the queen) that his brother and sister-in-law needed to either get out of private business or out of public royalty, Edward stepped down from his working roles at Ardent in 2002.
- The company itself finally closed in 2009.
- And so, in addition to becoming parents in 2003, Sophie and Edward dedicated themselves solely to the job of royalty—and senior working royals they’ve remained, only increasing their share of the workload as time went by and the queen started thinning her schedule.
In fact, the Earl and Countess of Wessex were among the first in the family to venture back into making in-person appearances following the COVID-19 lockdown, which they spent working remotely at Bagshot Park. Their 56-room home in Surrey, a wedding gift from the queen, is also about a 20-minute drive from Windsor Castle, where the queen and Philip were doing their social distancing.
Sophie was also known to be volunteering at a nearby food bank. The Wessexes’ office has also been based at Buckingham Palace, which contributed to Sophie’s close bond with the queen, and they share the Royal Family social media account. “If Sophie wasn’t there, the Queen would only have a lady-in-waiting for those feminine chats she likes,” a royal aide told Seward in 2013.
“The Princess Royal is very close to her mother, but is hardly ever there, while Sophie is around a lot.” When the royals all went to their respective homes to ride out the lockdown in March 2020, Sophie recorded a video message, shot by her daughter, now 18-year-old Louise, about services available those who would inevitably need them during the extended period of isolation.

- Make use of the resources out there and the fantastic digital communities that are sharing and supporting them.
Stay safe and thinking of you all.” That June, as the world was opening up, she visited the NSPCC office (one of her more than 70 patronages), where she met with workers and sat in on a Childline counseling shift. Samir Hussein/WireImage Sophie and Edward celebrated their 23rd wedding anniversary in June in the wake of the queen’s Platinum Jubilee, the last time the monarch’s sprawling family was all together before they reunited in the wake of her death last week,
- The Wessexes were subject to the usual trouble-in-paradise rumors over the years, but they always had the queen’s support (and the occasional assist from the Palace’s communications office when absolutely necessary), as well as each other’s.
- Sophie has been through some trying times,” a friend told Ingrid Seward in 2013,
“Edward has always been her shoulder to cry on and has seen her at her lowest ebb.” Body language expert Judi James acknowledged to the Express in 2019 that Edward’s marriage was originally the least-expected to last, but. Here they are. “A successful PR with her own firm, integrated into the royal family in a very unfussy way and was a perfect compliment for her husband’s trait of apparently taking himself a little too seriously,” James observed.
And it was certainly nice to be close with one’s mother-in-law, especially after Sophie’s own mother died in 2005. Chris Jackson – WPA Pool/Getty Images “Sophie first of all respects her as the Queen, then as a mother-in-law,” the monarch’s cousin Elizabeth Anson told Elizabeth the Queen author Sally Bedell Smith, “but she also understands that she is a human being, and treats her that way.” Sophie and the queen were also military history buffs, and it’s said they would disappear into the royal archives for hours on end.
And though she wasn’t a natural equestrian, Sophie took lessons to become an accomplished enough horseback rider to accompany the queen on the monarch’s beloved rides around the grounds of Balmoral or Windsor when invited. Enjoying the queen’s friendship all these years has also helped Sophie remain confident and poised when the going got tough—or when faced with the very real threat of exciting young royals co-opting all the headlines.
- Sophie “radiates happiness,” Laura Benjamin, one of the countess’ go-to designers, told Seward.
- I think she enjoys looking good and doing good.” Kirsty O’Connor – WPA Pool/Getty Images She also knew how to blend in, often enjoying pride of place next to the queen in the back of her Rolls-Royce during rides to church in Windsor or at Sandringham.
Royal aides compared their relationship to that of mother and daughter, and in addition to being a confidante for years, Sophie was said to have become the queen’s rock in the wake of Philip’s death in April 2021. Marveling at her mother-in-law’s stoicism, meanwhile, a teary-eyed Sophie told reporters after Philip died, “The queen has been amazing.” Get the latest tea from inside the palace walls.

- The King’s wife was reportedly confronted by Anne as the designer said the “whole situation” is “very difficult” amid claims that not everyone accepts Camilla’s new title.
Princess Anne allegedly told Camilla that she is Queen Consort, not Queen ( Getty Images) Speaking to Dan Wootton on GB News, Mr Emanuel, who designed Princess Diana’s wedding dress in 1981, said: “I heard that there was a Coronation dinner with which obviously the King and Camila were there, and apparently the Princess Royal said, ‘You’re not Queen, you’re the Queen’s consort’.” He added: “I understood from Her Majesty the Queen, she said she should be Queen Consort.
- During the Coronation, Princess Anne will feature in the procession as the prestigious “Gold-Stick-in-Waiting”, a position historically handed to a person entrusted with the personal safety of the sovereign.
- As a “personal aide-de-camp” to His Majesty, Anne will travel on horseback behind the new King and Queen after they are crowned at Westminster Abbey on May 6.
- As Charles and Camilla ride in the Gold State Coach back to Buckingham Palace, Anne will lead the larger procession featuring 6,000 armed services personnel.

Was Harry at the coronation concert?
Prince Harry was noticeably absent from the coronation concert Sunday, celebrating the newly crowned King Charles III and Queen Camilla, After attending the ceremony at Westminster Abbey yesterday, the Duke of Sussex made a quick exit to the airport, presumably on his way home to America.
- The youngest son of King Charles III departed Westminster Abbey after the coronation of his father in a black BMW sedan and went straight to the airport, according to multiple reports,
- Journalist Omid Scobie told ET earlier this week that “people around are working as hard as they can to find the quickest way into the country and the quickest way out.” He added, “He’s really only coming here for the ceremony, so any hopes for reconciliatory moments or private heart-to-heart between father and son or any of his family members, I think they’ll be waiting for another time.” Harry was in attendance at the historic coronation but had zero interaction with his father or brother, Prince William,
Harry was spotted entering the ceremony at Westminster Abbey on Saturday morning with his cousins, Princess Beatrice, Princes Eugenie, and Zara Tindall, as well as their respective spouses. He seemed in good spirits, smiling and chatting with Beatrice and her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, and sat with his family – next to Eugenie’s husband, Jack Brooksbank, and directly behind his aunt, Anne, Princess Royal, who he also talked to.
Harry also joined the crowd in reciting “God save King Charles” following his father’s crowning and sang along to “God Save the King” as the monarchs processed out of Westminster Abbey. Following the ceremony, Harry was seen waiting alone outside Westminster Abbey for 10 minutes before getting into a black BMW sedan and departing.
Prior to the coronation, a source close to the royal family told ET, “William is still upset about Harry’s book. He feels it was a betrayal and he has no interest in communicating with Harry before the coronation about their disagreements.” Although ET has reported that Harry has expressed an interest in mending his relationship with his brother and father, the source added, “The relationship is still fractured, and it is unclear when they will be able to mend fences.” Harry attended the coronation alone – while his wife, Meghan Markle, and their two children – Archie, who turns 4 on Saturday, and Lilibet, 1 – remained at home in California.
- Some surprise that Harry is going alone, not so much when you realize that it’s his son, Archie’s, birthday the very same day,” Parker explained.
- So Meghan is in fact going to be staying home in California to celebrate that birthday, which is perhaps quite convenient given the tensions between the two families right now.” A source told ET that Harry arrived in the U.K.
on Friday morning, and was put up at his and Meghan’s former home, Frogmore Cottage. As expected, he’s departing Saturday following the coronation festivities. Meanwhile, ET has learned that Archie’s birthday celebration will be a small gathering with friends and family in Montecito.

- She tells The Mirror: “As Harry waited in his seat for his father and brother to arrive there were some subliminal signs of building tension or anxiety.

- Judi also explained that Harry was very confident when he walked into the Coronation.

- While walking in, Harry gave courteous greetings to some of the other guests, saying “hello”, “morning” and “nice to see you” to various people.

(Image credit: Getty) ” Princess Anne is a very straight down the line and blunt sort of person,” says royal expert Jennie Bond. “She says what she thinks; she doesn’t pretend anything. She is probably like her late mother, as Queen Elizabeth could always compartmentalize everything she was told.
- So when the family was imploding but she had a job to do, she could just put that on one side and get on with the job in hand.
- And I think Anne’s probably a little bit like that.” Even through Harry’s familial rifts with other royal family members, Bond believes Anne and Harry—who shared an exchange at the Coronation earlier this month—remain close: “It was entirely natural to stop and chat with her nephew with whom, I think, she got on pretty well over the years rather than cause some kind of public scene,” Bond says.
“It was better to be amiable, but I am quite sure that deep down Anne has been absolutely furious with Harry for upsetting her mother, his grandmother, so much in her last years.” (Image credit: Getty) Yet, Bond says, the Coronation “was neither the time nor place to discuss all that.” “I mean, they look very relaxed together,” Bond says. “She would have just put things on one side a little bit, but I’m sure she is angry at the damage he’s done to the royal reputation, because she works so hard.
- I don’t know how strong the relationship between is, but Anne works so damned hard, so hard for the constitutional monarchy, and anything that damages it would make her very angry.” Bond is right—Anne is, year after year, consistently named the hardest working member of the royal family.
