Princess Anne sends message of support to engineers
The Princess Royal appeared via video for the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Royal Engineering 2021, paying tribute to engineers working during the coronavirus pandemic. She spoke from her Gatcombe Park home in Gloucestershire as she showed off an elegant outfit for the occasion.
A glimpse of the royal was shared by Queen Elizabeth Prize for Royal Engineering’s Twitter account, with Anne appearing in front of curtains.
HELLO! noted the Princess Royal wrapped a cream and black printed scarf around her neck for the occasion.
Anne paired the scarf with a personal favourite, accessorising with pearl earrings.

Anne sent a message of “support” to engineers.
She said: “The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the lives of literally everybody in some way around the globe and has presented us all with challenges we could not have anticipated.
“But, as is always the case, engineering has risen to those challenges with energy, ingenuity and a spirit of collaboration.
“Since its inaugural award in 2013, the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Royal Engineering has recognised those whose work exemplifies those qualities.
“Without their efforts, life during the pandemic would have been very different.
“The pioneers of the internet and the developers of digital imaging systems and GPS have enabled us to keep in touch with friends and family and to continue to do business across the globe.”
But Judi James, body language expert, shared with Express.co.uk the Princess Royal looks “uncharacteristically frail” in her latest clip.
She said: “If it weren’t for her stoic and optimistic words and the air of determination in her body language here, Princess Anne might have caused worry by looking uncharacteristically frail.
“Her eyes appear red, with a sad expression and her voice is hoarse, all of which could be symptoms of her famously busy workload.”
