The queen’s daughter is not a fan of social media
Princess Anne has been dubbed the hardest-working royal, as she typically attends far more engagements each year than the rest of her family. However, she had to switch to virtual meetings when public gatherings in the UK were banned during the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). But she’s not a fan of modern technology or social media.
“With online technology… being in touch is one thing but it’s not quite the same,” she explained in the documentary titled Anne: Princess Royal at 70. “The ability to meet people is what makes the difference. I mean, I know what Twitter is, but I wouldn’t get anywhere near it if you paid me frankly.
The princess added that social media could make things more difficult for some young royals like Princes William and Harry and their wives.
“There was no social media in my day, so that probably made it more difficult,” she said.
Princess Anne jokes about how long it takes Doherty to mimic her hairstyle
Princess Anne also admitted in the documentary she is watching The crown. She described the previous episodes as “quite interesting” but did not watch the more recent ones in which Doherty portrayed her. However, Anne responded to something the young actor had to say about how long it takes a team of stylists to prepare them for the role.
In a previous interview with City and countryside, Doherty called the princess’s hairstyle a “beast”.
She said: “The makeup literally took 10 minutes but the hair sometimes took two hours… It’s its own beast. Literally, I would sit in the chair, people would come in and come and go, and I would just sit in one place. But it was so necessary for her character because it was as if her hair and her fashion allowed her to express herself in the confined and controlled environment in which she grew up.
Princess Anne joked about Doherty’s comments and wondered how the heck he could take this long to perfect his hairstyle, saying, “Actually, I read an article the other day on The crown, the actress was talking about how long it took them to do their hair like me. And I’m like, “How could you take so long? I mean it takes me 10 or 15 minutes. “
“The Crown” will end after season 6
The crown was supposed to end after Season 6. Then, at the end of January, it was announced that the series would end after Season 5. That was until series creator Peter Morgan reconsidered that decision and came back. to the initial packaging plan after the sixth season.
“As we started discussing the storylines for Series 5, it soon became clear that to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story, we needed to go back to the original plan and do six seasons,” Morgan said via Deadline.
We’ll have to wait and see if Princess Anne starts watching him again, and then get her take on the next actor to portray her.
