Princess Anne has stepped out in public for the first time since the death of her father, Prince Philip, as she resumed her royal duties.
The Princess Royal were all wearing black, wide sunglasses when she arrived at the Royal Yacht Squadron in Cowes on the Isle of Wight.

The family are currently observing two weeks of royal mourning, but they “continue to undertake commitments tailored to the circumstances,” a royal official said.

Anne took part in a video engagement earlier this week, joining the Royal College of Emergency Medicine Spring Conference as the organization’s sponsor, but today is her first in-person engagement.

After the Duke of Edinburgh’s death on Friday, Anne released a moving statement saying she was not ready for his death.

Anne, the Queen and Philip’s second born, was extremely close to her father and the couple shared a ‘just keep going’ approach to life.

She wrote: “You know it’s going to happen but you’re never really ready. My father was my teacher, my supporter and my critic, but above all he was his example of a life well lived and free service given that I wanted the most. imitate. “

She also praised his ability to treat everyone “as an individual in their own right” and said it was an honor and privilege to have been asked to follow in his footsteps for much of his royal work.

Prince William and Prince Harry have revealed that their grandfather would have wanted them to ‘get down to business’ in their tributes so that the commitments are in line with his wishes.

The Queen also returned to work yesterday, holding a ceremony as Earl Peel formally stepped down as Lord Chamberlain.

Earl Peel had overseen the arrangements for the Duke’s funeral – known as Operation Forth Bridge – before handing the responsibility over to his successor, former MI5 spy chief Baron Parker, a little over a week before Philip’s peaceful death at Windsor Castle.

The Lord Chamberlain’s office, headed by Lieutenant Colonel Michael Vernon, Comptroller to the Queen, is responsible for the practicality of the day.

Princess Anne is expected to join other members of the royal family, including the Queen, Prince Charles, Camilla, Prince William and Kate for Philip’s funeral on Saturday. Prince Harry also returned from the United States to the United Kingdom to attend.

The service, which has been adapted in accordance with Covid restrictions, will take place in Windsor.

All guests must wear face masks.
