Princess Anne dresses in green for Belfast today with silver brooch

Princess Anne along with Captain John Rees, the Chief of Staff of the National Museum of the Royal Navy, both attended the reopening of HMS Caroline and the Pumphouse at Alexandra Dock in the Titanic Quarter in Belfast today. The Princess Royal dressed in green for the occasion.

Princess Anne wore a green checked blazer for the occasion with four brown buttons featured down along the front. 

The jacket is a three-quarter length and Princess Anne looked fantastic wearing it to Northern Ireland.

The green colour appeared to blend teal, navy and brown tones, which is perfect as it can be paired with many different types of trousers or skirts.

Anne’s jacket has a tailored collar with navy velvet trim on the inside, as both her cuffs were rolled up slightly disclosing the inside material.

The navy velvet trim could also be seen from the inside of her tailored collar as she walked beside Captain John Rees.

In addition, the jacket has bronze embossed buttons and two pockets on the front.

Although this jacket could certainly be paired with jeans and heels for a fabulous night out, the Princess Royal took a different route.

Anne paired the jacket with plain navy trousers and black sturdy looking shoes.

She also carried a black handbag with a gold chain and wore a turquoise silk scarf for added warmth.

As is normal for Princess Anne, and was also normal for the late Queen, she wore her staple black gloves for today’s visit.

Traditionally, members of the Royal Family would wear gloves to avoid shaking hands with the public.

This practice was stopped by Princess Diana, and similarly, current royals like Kate Middleton and Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh do not wear gloves on royal engagements.

Finally, the Princess Royal accessorised with simple stud earrings and wore a silver heart-shaped brooch.

Although the brooch is unidentified, it is likely it had a poignant meaning to do with peace due to the recent 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement.

This is commonly accepted as the treaty which ended The Troubles in Northern Ireland, which was signed on April 10, 1998.

Princess Anne tied her brunette hair back into her signature hairstyle which she rarely changes.

The Princess Royal visited the HMS Caroline and the Pumphouse at Alexandra Dock today.

This is the decommissioned Royal Navy C-class light cruiser that HMS Caroline saw action on during World War One.

In addition, it served as a command centre in World War Two. In 1914, HMS Caroline was put into service and launched.

The place where Princess Anne visited today has only just reopened due to the coronavirus pandemic.
