Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip’s only daughter, Princess Anne, is known for her active role in the Royal Family. She was born during the reign of her grandfather, King George VI, on the 15th of August in 1950, and celebrated her 70th birthday in 2020.
Princess Anne started her royal duties when she became an adult. Since then, she has won a gold medal in 1971 and two silver medals in 1975 at the European Eventing Championships. In 1976, she became the first royal family member to compete in the Olympic Games. She is currently the 15th in line for the throne and is known for her charitable work. Princess Anne currently holds patronage of over 300 charity organisations which cover causes such as sport, sciences, and health in developing countries.
What is Princess Anne’s Net worth in 2022?
Her net worth is an estimated $30 million (£24 million), according to celebritynetworth.com. She has assets which include a yearly stipend from the Queen, $7 million worth of jewellery, a home worth $15 million, and a trust fund set up by her grandfather. She has also donated over $28 million to charities in the last 10 years.
Her first husband was Mark Phillips, whom she met at a royal party in 1968. Choosing to marry someone without any personal lineage defied all royal expectations, which earned her a reputation as the princess that always ‘chooses her own way’. They married in Westminster Abbey in 1973, which was televised with an estimated audience of 100 million. They have two children, Peter (born 1977) and Zara Phillips (born 1981) but refused to give them royal titles. However, the pair divorced in 1992.
Princess Anne is now married to Timothy Laurence, a Commander in the Royal Navy, whose marriage took place at Crathie Kirk near Balmoral Castle in 1992, shortly after her divorce from Mark Phillips. Her engagement ring is revealed to be worth $34,000 alone, so if that doesn’t scream lavish, I don’t know what does.Featured Image Credit: Alamy
