Princess Anne’s ‘stoic’ body language is very different with Zara: ‘Genuine but cautious’

Princess Anne has lived much of her life in the public eye and has worked as a senior royal since she was just 18-years-old. A body language expert has commented on her relationship with her daughter, Zara Tindall.

Both royals have a keen interesting in horse-riding and both competed in the sport.

When they have been seen together, body language expert Darren Stanton commented on their close relationship.

While he claimed the royals have a lot in common, he highlighted one outing where they appeared distant.

He claimed: “In one really interesting picture Princess Anne is not making eye contact with Zara.

“Her position is very rigid and stoic. I do not feel there is a great deal of rapport happening here.

“If you look at Princess Anne and Zara’s feet positions, it is quite telling.

“It shows that Anne wants to disengage and go in the other direction.”

Any supposed distance between the two, however, Darren suggested may have just been a result of the public nature of the outing.

“The emotion that the human face demonstrates most of all is a smile.

“We smile from when we are anxious to when we are embarrassed.

“But in this picture, the whole face is engaged and clearly the two are enjoying the moment.”

Princess Anne and Zara will likely see a lot of each other as they are neighbours at Gatcombe Park.

The royal line of succession – who outranks who?

The line of succession to the British throne dictates the order in which each member of the Royal Family would ascend to the throne.

It is also seen as a ranking of importance with the head of the line, the Queen, taking the place of ruler.

Older children come before younger children. Traditionally boys came before girls, but this law was changed on March 26, 2015 before the birth of Prince William’s first child.

Incredibly, Catholics are still excluded from the line of succession, as are children born outside of wedlock.

The royals, who usually stick to a strict protocol when appearing in public, often arrive at events in ascending order of importance, with the most important royal arriving last.

Prince Charles, 72, is currently first-in-line to the British throne, followed by Prince William, 39, his oldest son.

Then comes Prince William’s children, George, seven, Charlotte, six, and Louis, three, and they are followed by Prince Harry, 36. Prince Harry is succeeded by his son Archie Harrison, born in May 2019.

‘Slow to thaw’: Princess Anne’s body language with Camilla Parker Bowles shows change

Camilla has had an important royal role since she married Prince Charles in 2005.

She has often stepped out with Princess Anne and the royals seem to have a close bond.

However, body language expert Judi James claimed this was not always the case.

When Camilla first joined the family, the expert suggested Princess Anne was “slow to thaw”.

Judi said: “Given their past histories, with Anne having dated Camilla’s ex-husband, the relationship between Anne and Camilla might have been difficult.

“History like that would normally create a sense of embarrassment or discomfort from someone in Anne’s position.

“But [in one photo] she looked as though she might be ignoring or cutting Camilla rather than avoiding her, suggesting she is taking a slow-thaw route to her sister-in-law.

“But now, the two women seem very tolerant of one another to the point of often looking like old friends.”

The expert analysed pictures of the royals at the time and said their body language showed a growing friendship.

She continued: “In 2007, Camilla’s popularity with the public was rising and she was proving her worth as a member of the Firm via some tours abroad with Charles.

“In one photo, sitting in the carriage with Anne, Camilla wears a reasonably relaxed-looking smile.

“It’s the pose of the two women laughing together in the line-up that really seems to signal not just a thawing of the frost between them but a growing sense of close friendship between two women who have so much in common.”

Princess Anne’s two engagement rings worth £30,000 have special meanings

Princess Anne is the daughter of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip and is a senior working member of the Royal Family. She has been married twice and both times has been presented with pretty similar rings. How much are they worth?
“The cabochon gem is framed by a cluster of three small diamonds either side totalling approx 0.2 carats, set in yellow gold.”

According to the expert, the beautiful ring could still be worth around £9,000.

The same year that the couple divorced, Princess Anne married her current husband, Timothy Laurence.

Timothy is a retired Royal Navy officer and was equerry to the Queen from 1986 to 1989.

“It’s a very elegant, vintage design that sits beautifully on the finger.”

According to Anna, the engagement ring could cost as much as £20,000 to recreate. 

Sapphires have become a more typical stone for engagement rings over the years given its rich colour and durability.

The jewellery expert went on to share how the stone symbolises honesty, trust and wisdom and added that they’re resistant to scratching and make a brilliant ring.

She added: “The blue also lends a unique look to the rings, as we can see with Princess Anne.”

Kate Middleton also has a sapphire engagement ring from Prince William which once belonged to Princess Diana.

Prince William popped the question to Kate in Kenya while on holiday at Lewa Safari Camp.

The engagement ring features an oval sapphire as the centrepieces and is surrounded by sparkly diamonds.

The Duchess wears her stunning ring alongside her gold wedding band.
