The Princess Royal invited two trailblazing women to join her at Windsor castle on Tuesday for a special investiture ceremony. The Queen was not too far as she spent the day working from home in the same castle and conducting online video calls with ambassadors from South Korea and Switzerland.

Anne had the responsibility of awarding Polly Brooks an MBE and Joan Armatrading a CBE.

Ms Brooks is known as the founder of Dan’s Fund For Burns charity that she started in 2003, following the loss of her husband Dan in the Bali bombings.

She suffered a burn injury herself and decided to create a structure which offers practical, financial and emotional support to burn-injured adults.

Ms Armatrading is a renowned singer who first received an MBE two decades ago.

Princess Anne decorated her with a CBE for services “to music, charity and equal rights”.

“It’s actually fantastic to receive this, I was given an MBE in 2001 and that was a shock but this is a double shock because I didn’t really expect to get levelled up, as the Government says,” joked Joan Armatrading after the ceremony.

Despite her mother’s recent health struggles, Princess Anne has not stopped fulfilling many engagements.

The Princess Royal, 71, spent last Friday, October 22, in Somerset where she visited The Food Works – a local food and drink innovation centre.

She then opened the refurbished Winter Gardens and the new university Centre Weston before meeting with pupils from Fairmead School – an establishment that caters for children and young people with additional learning needs.

In awe of the Princess’ busy agenda, royal fans have kept on praising her work online.

“Love HRH Princess Royal! Hardworking, influential, stylish but most of all love her kindness and tenderness to Her Majesty,” said Lady Carrie Noel on Instagram.

Poppy Shevat commented: “The Princess Royal is so underrated. I wish we’d see more of her.”

“Princess Royal working so hard for the Crown,” wrote Southern Sister.
