Transcript: Princess Anne at 70 | Dec 28, 2020

(music plays)

A Male Narrator says SHE NEVER WANTED
TO BE A FAIRY-TALE PRINCESS.

Princess Anne is in her seventies. She has brown hair tied up, small earrings and a white, blue and green striped shirt.

Anne says AS A MEMBER OF THE ROYAL
FAMILY, FEMALES WERE TENDED TO
BE TREATED AS HONORARY MEN.

Jane says SHE LOVES DRIVING THE TANKS
AND FIRING THE GUNS.

The Narrator says AS THE PRINCESS ROYAL
PREPARES FOR HER 70TH BIRTHDAY,
WE'VE HAD UNIQUE ACCESS TO
HER FAMILY AND HER WORLD.
DAUGHTER.

In a video call, Anne says GOOD MORNING.
AT WINDSOR.

The Narrator says WIFE.

Tim says ANY HUSBAND WHO MAKES A
COMMENT ON HIS WIFE'S, ER,
FASHION STYLE IS A VERY BRAVE
OR RISKY MAN.

The Narrator says MOTHER.

Zara says IT'S UNBELIEVABLE THE
INFORMATION THAT'S STORED
IN HER BRAIN.
IT'S QUITE ANNOYING, AS WELL.

Peter says IT IS QUITE ANNOYING, YES.

The Narrator says AND GRANDMOTHER.

Anne says I'VE OFFERED TO TRY AND DO
SOME HOME SCHOOLING.
HAVEN'T SEEN HIDE NOR HAIR
OF THEM AT THAT SUGGESTION!

The Narrator says WE HEAR FROM OLD FRIENDS WITH
MEMORIES OF THE YOUNG PRINCESS.

Fast clips show Anne's royal activities and family portraits.

Earl of Caithness says SHE WAS MORE DETERMINED THAN
MOST, MORE COMPETITIVE THAN
MOST.

The Narrator says SEE HOW SHE PLANNED HER
OWN EDUCATION.

Anne says I DID VOLUNTEER TO GO TO
SCHOOL, I HAVE TO SAY.

The Narrator says BECAME A TREND-SETTING IT
GIRL.

Sarah says THE
VOGUE
COVER IS FOR
EXTRAORDINARY WOMEN.

The Narrator says AND DEDICATED HERSELF TO A
LIFE OF SERVICE, BECOMING
ONE OF THE HARDEST-WORKING
ROYALS.

Brenda whispers SHE WAS LOVELY.
SHE REALLY DOES HOLD THE
CONVERSATION WITH YOU.

Male Interviewer says HAS ANYONE EVER
TRIED TO TELL HER TO SLOW DOWN
A BIT?

Zara says I MEAN, GOOD LUCK.

The Narrator says SHE'S IN THE PUBLIC EYE,
BUT HAS MANAGED TO STAY
INTENSELY PRIVATE.

Wesley says ANNE DOESN'T CRAVE THE
LIMELIGHT.
SHE PROBABLY HAD HER FILL OF
BEING IN THE NEWSPAPERS WHEN
SHE WAS YOUNG.

The Narrator says BEING ROYAL IN THE MEDIA AGE
CAN BE TOUGH.
ANNE WAS A PIONEER.

Anne says THE PRESSURE THAT IS, UM,
APPLIED TO THE YOUNGER MEMBERS
OF THE FAMILY IS HARD SOMETIMES
TO DEAL WITH.

The Narrator says THE PRINCESS ROYAL HAS
ALWAYS GONE HER OWN WAY.
THE FIRST ROYAL OLYMPIAN.

Seb says IT IS PROBABLY THE MOST
DANGEROUS SPORT ON THE PLANET.

The Narrator says AS FEARLESS IN THE SADDLE...

A Male Host says GOOD EVENING.
SHOTS HAVE BEEN FIRED AT
PRINCESS ANNE.

The Narrator says AS IN THE FACE OF A
KIDNAPPER.

Anne says I HAD THOUGHT ABOUT IT BEFORE
THAT.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF?

The Narrator says NOW IN CLOSE-UP, ANNE
ELIZABETH ALICE LOUISE,
THE PRINCESS ROYAL AS WE'VE
NEVER SEEN HER BEFORE.

Posing, Anne says I'M LIKE A GOLDFISH IN A BOWL
HERE!

The title of the show reads "Anne. The Princess Royal at 70."

(piano music plays)

Talking to a horse by a fence, Anne says OH, THERE HE GOES.
HELLO, BIG BOY.

The Narrator says SUMMER 2020, AND LIKE THE
REST OF THE COUNTRY, THE
PRINCESS ROYAL IS
SELF-ISOLATING AT HOME.
IN HER CASE, GATCOMBE PARK
IN GLOUCESTERSHIRE.

Anne says WE HAVE CATTLE AND SHEEP
HERE, PARTLY BECAUSE
ENVIRONMENTALLY YOU'RE BETTER
OFF IF YOU SHARE THE FEEDING,
ERM...
ACTUALLY, THE, THE FERTILIZING,
AS WELL.
THANK YOU, DEAR.

A caption reads "August 2019."

The Narrator says IN ANY OTHER SUMMER,
GATCOMBE WOULD BE HOSTING
THE FESTIVAL OF BRITISH
EVENTING, A SPORT WHERE
HORSES AND RIDERS UNDERGO
TIMED TRIALS.

(crowd applauding)
People enjoy a riding competition.

He continues PRINCESS ANNE HAS BEEN THE
ROYAL FACE OF THE SPORT FOR
50 YEARS.
THE FESTIVAL IS INFORMAL,
A CHANCE FOR THE PUBLIC
TO SEE HER UP CLOSE.
THE PRINCESS'S CHILDREN, ZARA
TINDALL AND PETER PHILLIPS,
LIVE LOCALLY.
THEIR CHILDREN ARE ON HAND TO
HELP OUT THEIR GRANDMOTHER.

The caption changes to "Peter Phillips." He is in his early forties, clean-shaven with receding blond hair. He wears a black zip sweater over a light shirt.

Peter says SHE LOVES SEEING THEM RIDE,
SHE LOVES HAVING THEM ROUND FOR
SUNDAY LUNCHES AND, YOU KNOW,
TAKING THEM FOR WALKS.
YOU KNOW, DOING ALL THE STUFF
THAT WE USED TO DO AS KIDS,
SHE NOW TAKES THEM TO DO THOSE
SORTS OF THINGS.

The caption changes to "Zara Tindall." Zara is in her late thirties, with short blond hair. She wears a dark blue pullower.

Zara says YEAH, WE QUITE LIKE LEAVING
THEM ON SUNDAYS.
WE'LL SAY, "WE'LL PICK THEM UP
LATER, SEE YOU LATER."

Male Commentator says AND THEY ARE
OFF RACING!
OFF THEY GO, ROUND THE OUTSIDE
NUMBER SIX
(UNCLEAR) IS GOING LIKE A STORM
ON THE OUTSIDE THERE.

The Narrator says THE FESTIVAL'S A FAMILY
AFFAIR, BUT THIS YEAR,
COVID-19 CHANGED THAT.
ONCE IT WAS LEGAL FOR HER
GRANDCHILDREN TO APPROACH,
THE PRINCESS WAS READY TO PLAY
SCHOOL... MARM.

Anne says THEY'VE GOT PONIES AND THEY
COME OVER AND THEY CAN RIDE
HERE.
BUT THEY ARE... THEY FACE THE
SAME CHALLENGES OF EVERYBODY
ELSE IN TERMS OF HOME SCHOOLING.
ER, AND I THINK THAT'S,
ACTUALLY, THAT IS A CHALLENGE
WHEREVER YOU ARE.
I'VE OFFERED TO TRY AND DO SOME
OUTDOOR LEARNING, BUT SO FAR
IT HASN'T BEEN TAKEN UP ON.
WHEN I WAS SMALL, WE HAD TO PICK
THINGS AND THEN PRESS THEM AND
IDENTIFY THEM.
I DON'T THINK ANYBODY DOES THAT
ANYMORE, AND I WAS THINKING,
AH, YOU KNOW, IT MIGHT BE A GOOD
IDEA IF WE STARTED DOING THAT
AGAIN.
HAVEN'T SEEN HIDE NOR HAIR
OF THEM AT THAT SUGGESTION!
(laughing)
IT'S THE LONGEST TIME I'VE EVER
SPENT AT GATCOMBE IN THE 40-ODD
YEARS WE'VE BEEN HERE.
IT'S FRUSTRATING, I THINK - BUT
LOOK AROUND HERE, IT'S NOT HARD
HERE.
THE IDEA OF BEING STUCK IN AN,
ERM, A BLOCK OF FLATS, WITH
SMALL CHILDREN AND, ERM...
I CAN'T IMAGINE HOW DIFFICULT
THAT WOULD BE.

The Narrator says FOR FIVE DECADES, SHE'S BEEN
USED TO A PACKED WORK SCHEDULE.
THE PRINCESS ROYAL DIDN'T
EXPECT TO SPEND HER 70TH YEAR
DOWN ON THE FARM.
WORKING FROM HOME HAS BEEN
A CHALLENGE.
HUSBAND VICE ADMIRAL SIR
TIM LAURENCE HAS SEEN THE
FRUSTRATION.

The caption changes to "Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence." Tim is in her early seventies, clean-shaven with grating hair. He wears a white shirt under a blue jacket.

Tim says ALMOST EVERYTHING THAT SHE
DOES, IN A PUBLIC WAY, INVOLVES
PEOPLE COMING TOGETHER TO, TO,
TO MEET HER FOR, FOR SOME
REASON OR ANOTHER.
SO, THAT'S BEEN EXTREMELY
DIFFICULT.

The Narrator says THE CHARITY WORK IS CONSTANT.

Anne appears on a video call.

In off, Tom says IT'S TOM HERE.
I'M, I'M JUST GOING TO INTRODUCE
HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN.

The Narrator says BUT COUNTRY BROADBAND ISN'T!
THESE AREN'T YOUR AVERAGE
CONFERENCE CALLS, EITHER.

Anne says ER, GOOD MORNING AT WINDSOR.

In her mid nineties with a floral dress, Queen Elizabeth says GOOD MORNING.
I'M VERY GLAD TO HAVE BEEN ABLE
TO JOIN YOU.

Anne says CAN YOU SEE EVERYBODY?
YOU SHOULD HAVE SIX PEOPLE
ON YOUR SCREEN.

Queen Elizabeth says YES, WELL, I CAN SEE FOUR,
ANYWAY.

Anne says OKAY, FAIR ENOUGH.
ACTUALLY, YOU DON'T NEED ME.
YOU KNOW WHAT I LOOK LIKE.
UM... (LAUGHING)
WITH ONLINE TECHNOLOGY,
BEING IN TOUCH IS ONE THING
BUT IT'S NOT QUITE THE SAME.
THE ABILITY TO MEET PEOPLE,
THAT'S WHAT MAKES THE
DIFFERENCE.
I KNOW WHAT TWITTER IS, BUT I
WOULDN'T GO ANYWHERE NEAR IT,
UM, IF YOU PAID ME FRANKLY.
BUT THAT'S A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT
ISSUE, HA!
SO, I DO FEEL PRETTY USELESS
STUCK HERE, IN RELATIVE TERMS
TO WHAT I THINK I SHOULD BE
DOING.

The Narrator says THE OLD NORMAL WAS A LIFE
OF DUTY.
MOST MORNINGS INVOLVE AN EARLY
START, EVEN BEFORE THE
TRANSPORT ARRIVES.

The caption changes to "09:57."

He continues THE PRINCESS HAS A DAILY
SCHEDULE OF PUBLIC APPEARANCES.
TODAY, THEY'RE ALL OVER KENT.

Anne get into a helicopter.

The caption changes to "Elizabeth Bennet. Programme Manager Office of the Princess Royal." Elizabeth is in her mid thirties, with long blond hair. She wears a white and blue shirt.

Elizabeth says SHE IS VERY HARD-WORKING.
SHE IS THE BUSIEST MEMBER
OF THE ROYAL FAMILY, REGULARLY
CARRYING OUT OVER 500
ENGAGEMENTS A YEAR.

Anne says WELL, AWAY DAYS, EACH OF
THOSE WILL BE PROBABLY BE
DIFFERENT, AND DIFFERENT
REASONS FOR GOING.
MANY OF THEM ARE, ARE VOLUNTARY
ORGANIZATIONS, AND IF YOU CAN
DO ANYTHING TO RAISE THEIR
PROFILE, THEN YOU WILL HAVE
ACHIEVED SOMETHING.
YOU ARE REFLECTING HER
MAJESTY'S POSITION.
BUT MOST OF THE TIME, YOU ARE,
I THINK, IN MY CASE, JUST TRYING
TO COVER THE...
HUH, THE BITS OF THE COUNTRY
THAT MOST OTHER PEOPLE WON'T GET
TO!

The Narrator says TODAY, THE FIRST ORGANIZATION
IS ENGLISH RURAL.
NEAR ASHFORD, VILLAGERS ARE
GETTING READY FOR THE ROYAL
OPENING OF SOME NEW HOMES.

The caption changes to "10:25."

The caption changes to "Captain Sir Nicholas Wright RN. Former Private Secretary to the Princess Royal." Nicholas is in his sixties, clean-shaven with receding white hair. He wears a dark striped jacket, blue shirt and dark blue patterned tie.

Nicholas says WE HAVE TO SEND HER
PROGRAMS, HER BRIEFS,
HER SPEECHES.
AND GOD HELP ME IF THERE WAS
SOMETHING MISSING.
SHE WOULD READ WITH A REALLY
SHARP EYE, AND I REMEMBER ONCE,
I'VE NEVER FORGOTTEN IT.
SHE SAID, "PRIVATE SECRETARY,
WHAT NORMALLY COMES AFTER 16?"
AND I KNEW THEN THAT PAGE 17
OF THE BRIEF WAS MISSING.

The caption changes to "10:41."

Anne says THE ORGANIZATION HAS BACK
STORIES THAT ARE QUITE USEFUL
TO KNOW.
SO, THAT'S, YOU KNOW, EITHER
LENGTH OF TIME, PEOPLE INVOLVED,
IMPACT OF WHAT IT DOES.

Zara says SHE'S LIKE A SPONGE.
IT'S UNBELIEVABLE THE
INFORMATION THAT'S STORED
IN HER BRAIN, IT'S INCREDIBLE.
IT'S QUITE ANNOYING, AS WELL.

Peter says IT IS QUITE ANNOYING, YES.

Anne says HAD TO WAIT A BIT, HAVEN'T
YOU?

A blond woman holding a baby says YES.
I FIRST REGISTERED AN INTEREST
ABOUT A YEAR-AND-A-HALF OR TWO
YEARS AGO.
BUT WE'RE VERY HAPPY HERE.

Anne says AND DID YOU HELP WITH THE
DECORATING?

The blond woman says HUXLEY, THE PRINCESS IS
TALKING TO YOU.
(laughing)
OH, HE'S BEING REALLY BASHFUL
THIS MORNING.

In off, a man YOUR ROYAL HIGHNESS.

Anne uncovers a plaque as photographers take her picture.

The Narrator says THE FIRST UNVEILING OF
THE DAY, DONE.
THEN, IT'S BACK TO THE
HELICOPTER.
AT MAIDSTONE HOSPITAL,
A NEW HELIPAD NEEDS OPENING.

The caption changes to "12:09."

The caption changes to "Miles Scott. NHS Trust." Miles is in his early fifties, clean-shaven with combed graying hair. He wears a blue suit.

Miles says WE'VE GOT ABOUT 200 PEOPLE
HERE.
I DON'T SUPPOSE SHE'LL BE ABLE
TO SAY HELLO TO EVERY SINGLE ONE
OF THOSE, BUT ANYBODY SHE CAN
SAY HELLO TO, I KNOW THEY'LL
REALLY APPRECIATE IT.

The caption changes to "12:22."

A woman says OH, LOOK, SHE'S COMING!

The caption changes to "Jane Holderness-Roddam. Lady in Waiting." Jane is in her mid sixties, with short gray hair. She wears a dotted blue shirt under a red vest.

Sitting o a sofa, Jane says SOMETIMES PEOPLE REACT IN
THE MOST EXTRAORDINARY WAYS.
YOU KNOW, THEY GET COMPLETELY
OVERAWED BEING IN FRONT OF
A PRINCESS, AND THOROUGHLY
OVERDO THE CURTSEYS OR THE BOWS,
OR DON'T DO IT AT ALL.
OR PRACTICALLY SHAKE HER HAND
OFF, WHICH CAN HAPPEN!

Anne shakes hands with several people.

Anne says YOU DON'T LITERALLY WORK
YOUR WAY THROUGH THE CROWD.
THAT'S USUALLY LEFT UP TO
OTHER PEOPLE.
IN SOME WAYS, IT WOULD BE JUST
AS MUCH FUN IF YOU DID IT
ALL BY YOURSELF.
BUT, IT WOULD BE A BIT CHAOTIC.
ALTHOUGH HOLYROOD, AT THE GARDEN
PARTY, I DO SOME WORK OUT THE
BACK OF THE BORDER, WHICH IS
WHERE THE PEOPLE WHO DIDN'T
WANT TO BE SEEN WENT.
THAT WAS MY...
(laughing)
THEY WERE ALMOST PRETENDING
THEY WEREN'T THERE, SO ENGAGING
THEM IN CONVERSATION WAS
ALWAYS QUITE...
THEY WERE ALWAYS LOOKING AROUND,
"I'M NOT REALLY HERE."
YOU KNOW, "I DON'T REALLY WANT
TO TALK TO ANYONE!"

Miles says THIS IS LUCIA.

Anne says NICE TO MEET YOU.

Miles says SO, LUCIA IS THE SENIOR
EMPLOYEE OF THE WHOLE OF THE
NHS, 93 YEARS OLD.
AND LUCIA NOW LOOKS AFTER THE
JUNIOR DOCTORS ON THIS SITE, SO
SHE KEEPS THEIR-- SO, YOU KNOW
THE WAY THEY LIVE IS CALLED A
MESS, BUT ACTUALLY IT'S VERY
CLEAN, IT'S NOT A MESS AT ALL,
IS IT?

Anne says IT'S ONLY BECAUSE OF HER.

Miles says IT'S ONLY BECAUSE OF LUCIA.

Anne says IT'S VERY NICE TO MEET YOU.

A woman says YEAH, NICE TOO.

The caption changes to "The Hon Madeleine Louloudis. Lady in Waiting." Madeleine is in her fifties, with short blond hair. She wears a floral shirt under a dark jacket and a golden necklace.

Madeleine says THE IMPACT OF A ROYAL VISIT,
IT'S VERY HARD TO QUANTIFY,
BUT YOU GET BACK INTO THE CAR
AND YOU SEE PEOPLE JUST BEAMING.

The caption changes to "13:25."

The Narrator says IT'S WINTER, TWO HOURS
BEFORE SUNDOWN, BUT THE
PRINCESS ROYAL IS ONLY
HALFWAY THROUGH HER DAY'S
ENGAGEMENTS.

The helicopter lands on a green field.

The caption changes to "Seb Coe. World Athletics President." Seb is in his early sixties, clean-shaven with graying hair. He wears a blue zip sweater over a white shirt.

Seb says I ALWAYS REMINDED MANY OF
OUR COLLEAGUES OF THE BRITISH
OLYMPIC ASSOCIATION THAT WHILE
WE'VE ALL SORT OF SAUNTERED
INTO A BOARD MEETING AT TWO
O'CLOCK THAT RUNS TILL FIVE,
SHE'S PROBABLY OPENED FIVE
HOSPITALS BY THE TIME THAT
SHE'S EVEN HAD LUNCH.

Interviewer says DOES ANYONE
EVER TRY TO TELL HER TO SLOW
DOWN A BIT?

Zara says ER... I MEAN, GOOD LUCK.
WE WOULD TRY AND, YOU KNOW, AND
THEN, IT WOULD BE A VERY SHORT
CONVERSATION.

The Narrator says AT GILLINGHAM, THERE ARE
HOSPITAL BUILDING WORKS
TO INSPECT AND STAFF AT THE
MATERNITY UNIT OF THE YEAR
TO CONGRATULATE.

The caption changes to "Cllr Habib Tejan. Mayor of Medway."

In his early forties wearing a military uniform, Habib says TWO EVENTS IN A COMMON YEAR
IS AMAZING, AND I KNOW HOW
DEMANDING IT IS.
SO, REALLY, MY HAT OFF TO HER.
SHE'S A REMARKABLE HARD-WORKING
WOMAN.

A middle-aged woman says I HAVEN'T DONE A CURTSEY
SINCE I DID BALLET.
I'M JUST GONNA HAVE TO DO
A LITTLE BOB.
(laughing)

A Female Nurse says THREE, TWO, ONE!

Smiling, nurses bow at the same time.

The caption changes to "14:07."

In off, a woman says HERE SHE COMES.

Peter says SHE'S GOT SO MUCH MORE
ENERGY THAN ANYBODY THAT I
KNOW WHO'S 70.
WELL, APART FROM VARIOUS MEMBERS
OF OUR FAMILY, BUT SHE...
(laughing)
THERE'S CERTAINLY...
SHE CERTAINLY DOESN'T ACT IT.

Zara says AGE IS NOT A THING TO HER.
IT'S, YOU KNOW, VERY MUCH
THE MORE SHE KEEPS DOING,
THE YOUNGER SHE'LL STAY.

Peter says YEAH, SHE ALWAYS SAYS SHE
DOESN'T HAVE VERY GOOD ROLE
MODELS FOR SLOWING DOWN.

Zara says NO, THAT'S TRUE.

Madeleine says I DO REMEMBER A DAY,
THE PRINCESS MUST HAVE MET A
THOUSAND PEOPLE ON FOUR OR FIVE
ENGAGEMENTS.
AND I REMEMBER THINKING, "I'M
ABSOLUTELY WRECKED" AT THE END
OF THE DAY.
ERM, SHE WAS STILL GIVING
EVERYBODY THE ATTENTION SHE
GAVE AT THE BEGINNING
OF THE DAY.

In a hospital, a woman wearing a green dress says SO, MA'AM, IF I COULD
INTRODUCE LAURA AND CHRIS,
AND THEIR NEW BABY OLIVER.

Anne says NICE TO SEE YOU.
DO YOU WORK HERE?

Laura says YEAH.

The woman wearing a green dress says THIS IS LAURA'S THIRD BABY.

Chris says AN EARLY CHRISTMAS PRESENT,
I THINK.
(laughing)

Anne says YOU DON'T NEED TO WRAP IT UP.

Chris says NO, NO, NO.
(laughing)

Anne says HAVE A VERY GOOD CHRISTMAS.

Chris says YOU TOO.

The caption changes to "16:10."

The Narrator says THE PRINCESS IS SCHEDULED
TO LAND AT KENSINGTON PALACE
HELIPAD AT JUST AFTER FOUR
O'CLOCK.
A CUP OF TEA, A CHANGE OF
CLOTHES, AND THEN SHE'LL BE
OFF TO A CHARITY DINNER.

Jane says THERE MAY BE A CHANGE TO
A FORMAL THING, A BALL GOWN
OR A COCKTAIL DRESS.
AND SHE'S SO ADEPT AT CHOPPING
AND CHANGING.
I'VE NOT QUITE MASTERED THE ART
MYSELF!

The Narrator says THE PRINCESS ROYAL'S PRESENCE
IS REQUESTED AT CHARITY DINNERS
MOST NIGHTS OF THE WEEK.
SHE HAS ONE GOLDEN RULE.

Nicholas says I'M VERY JEALOUS.
THE PRINCESS DOESN'T DRINK
AT ALL.

Elizabeth says IT IS A BUSY DAY FOR HER.
SHE DOES START EARLY, AND THEN
DOESN'T REALLY FINISH UNTIL
NINE O'CLOCK AT NIGHT, MAYBE
IF IT'S AFTER A DINNER, QUITE
A LOT LATER.

Zara says I ALWAYS REMEMBER WHEN WE
WERE LIVING AT GATCOMBE THAT
SHE WOULD COME HOME FROM
ENGAGEMENTS, AND SHE'D BE IN
EXACTLY WHAT SHE WAS WEARING,
AND HER MAKE-UP ON AND STUFF.
PUT HER WELLIE BOOTS ON,
HER JACKET ON, AND THEN, SHE
WALKS UP AND GOES TO DO HER
CHICKENS AND GET HER EGGS.

Anne says SITTING STILL REALLY, UM,
DOESN'T HAPPEN VERY MUCH.

Frances says PRINCESS ANNE HAS GOT QUITE
A LOT OF CHARACTER IN HER FACE.

The Narrator says SCULPTOR FRANCES SEGELMAN
PETCHEY IS MAKING A BUST TO
MARK THE PRINCESS'S 70TH
BIRTHDAY.
SHE'S DONE MOST OF THE ROYAL
FAMILY.

Frances is in her fifties, with curly blond hair. She wears a black sweater.

Standing by a bronze bust, Frances says SHE'S COMING FOR HER SECOND
SITTING.
I'D LOVE HER TO HAVE A TIARA.
I'M GONNA TRY AND PERSUADE HER
TODAY.
GOOD MORNING.
IT'S LOVELY TO MEET YOU AGAIN.
THANK YOU FOR COMING.
I DID THIS SCULPTURE OF YOUR
MOTHER IN 2008.

Anne says 2008?

France says YOUR FATHER IN 2000.
BORIS.

Anne says HMM, THE HAIRDO IS TRICKY.
(laughing)

The Narrator says THE PRINCESS MUST NOW BE
CENTRE OF ATTENTION, NOT
SOMETHING SHE ENJOYS.
CAROLINE NUNNELEY IS A
LADY-IN-WAITING.
HER JOB?
ANTICIPATING THE BOSS'S NEEDS.
RIGHT NOW, IT'S PROBABLY
ESCAPE.

France measures Anne's face.

Anne says I'M LIKE A GOLDFISH IN A BOWL
HERE.

The Narrator says FRANCES BRAVELY TRIES THE
T WORD.

Frances says SO, WE WERE GOING TO TALK
ABOUT THE TIARA.

Anne says WERE WE?

Frances says YEAH.

Anne says I THOUGHT I'D SAID NO.

France says I KNOW, BUT I JUST THINK IT
WOULD LOOK SO FABULOUS IF YOU
DID.

Anne says YEAH, BUT I'VE ONLY GOT
LITTLE TINY TIARAS THAT ARE NOT
REALLY WORTH IT.

France says IT WOULD JUST MAKE IT SO
NICE.
WE COULD THINK ABOUT IT AGAIN.
YEAH?
IF YOU DO WEAR A TIARA, WILL
THE BACK STILL BE THE SAME?

Anne says TO BE HONEST, IF I'M
WEARING A TIARA, I DO MY HAIR
DIFFERENTLY.

The Narrator says IT'S PROBABLY A NO.
BUT THERE IS ANOTHER TYPE
OF CROWN TO DISCUSS.

A clip plays.

The caption changes to "Courtesy of Netflix/Left Bank Pictures."

A man in his late forties says I WANT PEOPLE TO LIKE US,
TO FEEL THAT THEY KNOW US.

Young Anne says HUH!

The man says I KNOW YOU VALUE YOUR
PRIVACY, BUT I THINK THERE'S A
LOT ABOUT YOU THAT THEY WOULD
LIKE IF THEY GOT A CHANCE.
THE FACT THAT YOU'RE GENERALLY,
YOU'RE GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY.

Young Anne says LIKE A PAIR OF LONG-LASTING
BOOTS.

The clip ends.

Anne says ACTUALLY, I READ AN ARTICLE
THE OTHER DAY ABOUT THE...
I DON'T WATCH NETFLIX AND
THE CROWN,
BUT THE ACTRESS WAS
TALKING ABOUT HOW LONG IT TOOK
THEM TO DO THEIR HAIR LIKE I
DID.

France says REALLY?

Anne says AND I'M THINKING, HOW COULD
YOU POSSIBLY TAKE THAT LONG?
I MEAN, IT TAKES ME 10 OR 15
MINUTES.

Frances says YOU DO IT YOURSELF?

Anne says YES, I DO IT.

Frances says DO YOU DO IT YOURSELF?

Anne says BECAUSE IT'S SO MUCH QUICKER.

Frances says I KNOW!

Anne says THE IDEA THAT THEY'RE TAKING
THAT LONG, YOU THINK I DID THAT
EVERY DAY?
I DON'T THINK SO!

Frances says HOW AMAZING.

Anne says THE EARLY ONES WERE QUITE
INTERESTING.

Frances says WHEN YOUR MUM WAS YOUNG.

Anne says MAKING A SERIES ABOUT PEOPLE
WHO ARE STILL LIVING IS ALWAYS
QUITE A DANGEROUS THING TO DO.

The Narrator says THE TELEVISION PRINCESS
WASN'T INTERESTED IN CELEBRITY,
NOT UNLIKE THE REAL ONE.

Tim says SHE'S NOT A PERSON THAT IS
CONSTANTLY LOOKING FOR PRAISE.
SHE GETS ON AND DOES HER WORK
REGARDLESS, BECAUSE SHE THINKS
IT'S IMPORTANT.

The caption changes to "Wesley Kerr." Wesley is in his early fifties, clean-shaven with short curly graying hair. He wears a blue suit.

Wesley says ANNE DOESN'T CRAVE THE
LIMELIGHT.
SHE PROBABLY HAD HER FILL OF
BEING IN THE NEWSPAPERS WHEN
SHE WAS YOUNG.
SO, THERE'S A LOT OF THINGS
THAT SHE DOES UNDER THE RADAR.

The Narrator says THERE WERE NO TEARS WHEN
PRINCESS ANNE WAS FIRST
CAPTURED ON FILM, IN SEPTEMBER
1950.

In a black and white clip, a Male Reporter says IT'S AN OCCASION
WHEN WE WOULD ALL WISH TO
SHARE THEIR JOY AND PRIDE.

The Narrator says ANNE WAS A NEW PRINCESS FOR
A NEW AGE - THE MEDIA AGE.
SHE GREW UP SURROUNDED BY
CAMERAS, IN PUBLIC AND AT HOME.
BOTH THE PRINCESS'S PARENTS
WERE KEEN HOME FILMMAKERS.
WHEN HE WAS SIX, THE EARL
OF CAITHNESS WAS INVITED
TO BALMORAL PLAY DATES WITH
THE FIVE-YEAR-OLD PRINCESS.

Earl of Caithness is in his sixties, clean-shaven with receding thin hair. He wears a white shirt and glasses.

In a park, Earl of Caithness says I WAS VERY FORTUNATE TO
KNOW PRINCESS ANNE.
SHE WAS ALWAYS A LOT OF FUN.
SHE WAS A VERY DETERMINED
PERSON.
SHE WAS NOT GONNA GET BEATEN
BY A SITUATION, OR BY SOMEBODY.
AND IF SOMEBODY COULD DO
SOMETHING, SHE COULD DO IT TOO.
SHE WAS A VERY IMAGINATIVE
CHILD, AND CURIOUS ABOUT
EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED.
SO, SHE WAS CURIOUS ABOUT
THE ENVIRONMENT.
AND OF COURSE, THE DUKE WAS
VERY KEEN ON THE ENVIRONMENT.
SO, HE WAS PASSING THAT
KNOWLEDGE AND INTEREST ONTO
HIS CHILDREN, TOO.

Tim says SHE ALSO WAS BROUGHT UP BY
HER FATHER TO SAIL IN, IN
DINGHIES AND DEVELOPED A LOVE
OF SAILING.
ALMOST HER EARLIEST MEMORY IS
GOING ONBOARD THE ROYAL YACHT
BRITANNIA.

Fast clips show Anne as a little girl fishing and sailing.

Nicholas says THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH JUST
GOT ON WITH THINGS.
DIDN'T SUFFER FOOLS GLADLY,
AND I THINK IT'S FAIR TO SAY
THAT THE PRINCESS HAS MANY OF
HER FATHER'S CHARACTERISTICS.

The Narrator says THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH'S HOME
MOVIES CAPTURE DETERMINATION,
AND PERHAPS MORE, IN THE CHILD
WHO WOULD BECOME THE PRINCESS
ROYAL.

Earl of Caithness says SHE WAS MORE DETERMINED THAN
MOST, MORE COMPETITIVE THAN
MOST, AND THAT WAS A LOVELY
STREAK IN HER.

The Narrator says ANNE AND HER BROTHER CHARLES
WERE FIRST EDUCATED TOGETHER,
AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE BY
MISS CATHERINE PEEBLES.

Anne says SCHOOLDAYS WAS GOVERNESS
DRIVEN, SO THAT RANGE OF WHAT
YOU CAN DO IS QUITE LIMITED.
MY BASIC SKILLS WERE OKAY.
ERM, BUT WE WON'T GO FURTHER
THAN THAT, AND I DID MORE FRENCH
THAN MOST PEOPLE DID.
BUT NO MATHS.
AND NO LATIN.

Male Reporter says A NEW TERM AT
BENENDEN SCHOOL.

The Narrator says WHEN SHE WAS 12, ANNE TOOK
THE INITIATIVE AND ASKED HER
MOTHER IF SHE COULD GO TO
SCHOOL OUTSIDE THE PALACE,
THE FIRST PRINCESS TO DO SO.

Anne says I DID VOLUNTEER TO GO TO
SCHOOL, I HAVE TO SAY.
AND I WAS THRILLED, SCHOOL
WAS MUCH MORE INTERESTING!
(laughing)

The Reporter says NOW, SHE'LL LIVE
AND LEARN WITH 300 OTHER GIRLS
AND BE TREATED, AT THE QUEEN'S
REQUEST, EXACTLY THE SAME AS
ANY OTHER GIRL.

The Narrator says THIS WAS A NEW EXPERIENCE,
THE FIRST TIME SHE'D MIXED
WITH LARGE GROUPS OF OTHER
CHILDREN.

Male Interviewer says DID YOU FEEL
YOU WERE TREATED AS, LIKE
ONE OF THE GIRLS ALMOST...?

Anne says YOU'D HAVE TO ASK THE OTHER
GIRLS THAT.
I THOUGHT SO!

The Narrator says ONE OF THEM WAS CLASSMATE
SANDRA HACKING, ALREADY PART
OF A TIGHT FRIENDSHIP GROUP.
FOR SIX YEARS, THEY'D SHARE
THE PRINCESS'S HOPES, DREAMS
AND SECRETS.

A close-up shot shows a black and white portrait of schoolgirls.

The caption changes to "The Hon Sandra de Laszlo." Sandra is in her late sixties, with short graying hair. She wears dark red rimmed glasses, blue trousers, a pink turtleneck shirt and a patterned jacket.

Sandra says WE WERE GIVEN ENCOURAGEMENT
TO BE AS NATURAL AS POSSIBLE
WITH THE PRINCESS.
THE PERCEPTION WAS THAT THE
PRINCESS MIGHT BE QUITE SHY, BUT
WE HAD THIS GROUP OF FRIENDS,
AND THE PRINCESS JUST ROCKED UP
AND JOINED IN.

Anne says FOR ME OF COURSE, IT WAS
EDUCATION AT A DIFFERENT LEVEL.
AND THE FACT THAT YOU WERE DOING
IT WITH A GROUP OF PEOPLE, I WAS
AMAZED AT HOW MUCH I ENJOYED IT.

Sandra says THERE WAS A POSSIBLY A
GENERAL INSTRUCTION NOT TO
TALK TO THE PRESS.
THE PAPARAZZI DID EXIST THEN.
I DON'T RECALL INTRUSION AT
SCHOOL, BUT ON THE PUBLIC ROAD
THEY WERE QUITE KEEN TO
PHOTOGRAPH HER.
SO, THERE WAS A SENSE OF
LOOKING AFTER HER.

The Narrator says SHORTLY BEFORE HER 19TH
BIRTHDAY, THE PRINCESS JOINED
HER PARENTS ON A STATE VISIT
TO AUSTRIA.
IT WAS THE START OF A LIFELONG
CAREER REPRESENTING THE COUNTRY
ABROAD.
ON EARLY TRIPS, THE PRINCESS
WAS LEARNING THE ROPES.

Anne says PEOPLE TALK ABOUT BEING
TRAINED TO BECOME A MEMBER OF
THE ROYAL FAMILY.
UM, I'M SORRY TO DISAPPOINT
YOU, THERE IS NO SUCH THING.
IT'S JUST LEARNING BY
EXPERIENCE, BUT HARDLY EVER
DOES ANYTHING GO QUITE
ACCORDING TO PLAN, YOU HAVE
TO LEARN THAT.
ONE THAT STICKS IN MY MIND
ABOUT GOING UP IN LIFTS -
THERE WAS THE QUEEN AND THE
DUKE OF EDINBURGH AND THE
LADY-IN-WAITING AND ME.
I THINK WE WERE ALL DRESSED
FOR QUITE A SMART DO SOMEWHERE.
AND WE WENT FROM THE GROUND
FLOOR, WE WERE ONLY SUPPOSED
TO BE GOING TWO STOREYS, AND IT
WENT UP TO ABOUT THE 19TH
FLOOR, AND THIS CHAP GOT IN
THINKING HE WAS GOING FOR A,
YOU KNOW, A SPA TREATMENT.
HE WAS SLIGHTLY SURPRISED!

The Narrator says AT THE TIME PRINCESS ANNE
CAME OF AGE, WHATEVER THE YOUNG
DID WAS NEWS.
AND WHATEVER YOUNG ROYALS DID
WAS BIG NEWS.
TODAY, THEY'RE CELEBRITIES,
LIKE IT OR NOT, BUT ANNE WAS
THE PIONEER.

Anne says THE PRESSURE THAT IS APPLIED
TO THE YOUNGER MEMBERS OF THE
FAMILY IS ALWAYS WORSE, BECAUSE
THAT'S WHAT THE MEDIA IS
INTERESTED IN, AND THAT'S, YOU
KNOW, HARD SOMETIMES TO DEAL
WITH.
BUT THERE WAS NO SOCIAL MEDIA
IN MY DAY, SO IT PROBABLY HAS
MADE IT MORE DIFFICULT.

Jane says I KNOW THERE ARE LOTS OF
YOUNGER ROYALS SORT OF WHO
ARE VERY GLAMOROUS, BUT SHE
WAS A VERY MODERN PRINCESS.

Male Reporter says IN THE RELATIVELY
SHORT TIME THAT ANNE HAS BEEN
A GROWN-UP, FASHION-CONSCIOUS
YOUNG LADY, SHE'S MADE HERSELF
A NAME FOR HER CHOICE OF HATS.

Wesley says SHE WAS ACTUALLY RATHER
GLAMOROUS.
THE LONG HAIR, AND SHE WAS VERY
MUCH OF HER TIME.
SHE'S THE FIRST PRINCESS TO WE AR
A MINISKIRT.
DIFFERENT LOOKS GO IN AND OUT
OF FASHION.
SHE'S NOT AHEAD OF IT,
BUT SHE'S DEFINITELY IN THERE.

The Narrator says AND, SHE WAS ON
THE COVER.
FOR HER 21ST BIRTHDAY, THERE
WAS A LANDMARK PORTRAIT.

The caption changes to "Sarah Mower. Vogue Columnist." Sarah is in her early fifties, with shoulder-length blond hair. She wears a pale yellow jacket over a white shirt.

Sarah says WELL, TO BE ON THE COVER OF
VOGUE
IN 1971, I MEAN, THE
VOGUE
COVER IS FOR
EXTRAORDINARY WOMEN, AND SHE
WAS VERY MUCH HER OWN PERSON,
NOT HER MOTHER OR HER AUNTS.

The Narrator says PRINCESS ANNE HIT PLANET
FASHION FOR SIX.
HER PUBLIC WARDROBE WAS BOLD
AND BLOCKY.
SHE FAVOURED BRIGHT COLOURS
AND BIG HATS.

Sarah says SHE WAS ACTUALLY REALLY
FASHIONABLE AS A YOUNG WOMAN,
AND SHE'S SORT OF HER OWN
PERSON WITHIN THOSE PARAMETERS.

(rock music plays)

The Narrator says BACK IN THE 1970S, IF THE
WORLD'S MOST ELIGIBLE PRINCESS
WAS SEEN ANYWHERE NEAR A
BACHELOR, IT MADE FOR BANNER
HEADLINES.
CAPTAIN MARK PHILLIPS WAS A
RISING STAR IN THE EQUESTRIAN
WORLD.
HE MET HIS PRINCESS AT AN
OLYMPIC PARTY IN 1968.
THREE YEARS LATER, THE PRESS
GOT THEIR STORY.

Male Reporter 2 says AFTER WEEKS OF
RUMOUR, SPECULATION AND
DENIALS, FINALLY IT'S OFFICIAL.

The Narrator says NEITHER THE PRINCESS NOR HER
FIANCÉ WANTED THE ATTENTION,
BUT THEIR CELEBRITY FUELLED
ROYAL WEDDING FEVER.
IN NOVEMBER 1973, THE CEREMONY
WAS A MAJOR TELEVISION EVENT.

Wesley says THERE HAD NEVER BEEN ANYTHING
LIKE IT IN TERMS OF TELEVISION
SPECTACLE PROBABLY SINCE THE
CORONATION, WHICH WAS ON TINY
BLACK-AND-WHITE SETS.

The Narrator says 500 MILLION PEOPLE WATCHED
AROUND THE WORLD.

A clip of the royal wedding plays.

Archbishop of Canterbury says WITH THIS RING, I THEE WED.

Anne's husband says WITH THIS RING, I THEE WED.

(crowd cheering)

The Narrator says THE WEDDING MADE THE PRINCESS
AND HER NEW HUSBAND THE MOST
FAMOUS COUPLE ON EARTH.

The clip ends.

Male News Anchor says GOOD EVENING.
SHOTS HAVE BEEN FIRED AT
PRINCESS ANNE AND CAPTAIN
PHILLIPS.
AT LEAST FIVE SHOTS WERE FIRED
AT THEIR CAR AND THE BULLETS
SHATTERED THE WINDOWS.

The Narrator says FOUR MONTHS AFTER HER
DAZZLING WEDDING, PRINCESS ANNE
WAS THE TARGET OF WOULD-BE
KIDNAPPER IAN BALL.

Anne says WHAT IS INTERESTING IS WHAT
YOU REMEMBER AND HOW YOU
REMEMBER IT.
'CAUSE ALTHOUGH I THOUGHT I
REMEMBERED EVERYTHING THAT HAD
HAPPENED, I WOULD NEVER HAVE
BEEN ABLE TO SWEAR THAT I COULD
REMEMBER THEM IN THE RIGHT
ORDER, BECAUSE THEY WERE LIKE
PHOTOS.
INDIVIDUAL SNAPSHOTS.
VERY CLEARLY.

The Narrator says IN MARCH 1974, THE ROYAL CAR
WAS RETURNING FROM A CHARITY
EVENT, WHEN BALL FORCED IT
TO STOP.

Male Reporter 3 says THE MALL IS COMPLETELY CLOSED
OFF HERE TONIGHT.
NOW, A GUNMAN GOT OUT AND FIRED
SEVERAL SHOTS THROUGH THE
WINDSCREEN.

The Narrator says WHEN PROTECTION OFFICER JIM
BEATON CONFRONTED HIM, HE WAS
SHOT IN THE SHOULDER.

The caption changes to "Chief Supt Jim Beaton. Former Royal Protection Officer."

In his late sixties with white hair, Jim says THERE WAS A COUPLE OF SHORT
CRACKS.
I TOOK MY PISTOL, LIFTED IT UP
AND FIRED IT IN HIS DIRECTION
BUT NOTHING HAPPENED.
AND IT OBVIOUSLY HAD JAMMED.
I MANAGED TO GET INTO THE CAR
AND THERE WAS IAN BALL WITH
HIS GUN.
SO, I JUST STUCK UP MY RIGHT
HAND IN FRONT OF IT AND HE
FIRED, UM, AND IT WENT THROUGH
THE WINDOW OBVIOUSLY AND
INTO MY HAND.

Male Reporter 3 says THE DRIVER AND PRINCESS
ANNE'S BODYGUARD WERE HURT.
THEN, A POLICEMAN ON POINT
DUTY RAN UP.
HE WAS TURNED ON BY THE GUNMAN
AND SHOT AT, AT POINT-BLANK
RANGE.

Anne says STRANGELY, I HAD THOUGHT
ABOUT IT BEFORE THAT.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF?
ONE THING ABOUT HORSES AND SPORT
IS YOU HAVE TO PREPARE FOR THE
UNEXPECTED, AND YOU'VE GOT TO
THINK YOUR WAY THROUGH THE SORT
OF PROBLEMS THAT ARE LIKELY TO
OCCUR, AND I SUPPOSE THAT WAS
THE DISCIPLINE WHICH...
TO SOME EXTENT COLOURED MY
THOUGHT PROCESSES.

The Narrator says THE PRINCESS TRIED TO TALK
THE GUNMAN DOWN, INSISTING
SHE WOULD NOT LEAVE THE CAR.

The caption changes to "Brian Hoey. Biographer." Brian is in his seventies, clean-shaven with receding white hair. He wears a dark striped suit.

Brian says I REMEMBER SHE SAID TO ME,
"I WAS SO ANNOYED THAT HE TORE
THE SLEEVE OUT OF MY DRESS,
" SHE SAID, "AND IT WAS A GOOD
NEW DRESS."

The Narrator says BEFORE HE WAS OVERPOWERED,
BALL SHOT AND WOUNDED FOUR
PEOPLE.
THEY WERE ALL GIVEN MEDALS
BY A GRATEFUL QUEEN.

Jim says PRINCESS ANNE, BECAUSE SHE
WAS SO COOL, CALM AND COLLECTED,
I THINK IT KEPT THE SITUATION
WITHIN CONTROL.

The Narrator says THREE YEARS LATER CAME THE
BIRTH OF A SON, PETER.
AND IN 1981, BABY ZARA.
THEIR MOTHER DECIDED HER
CHILDREN SHOULD BE PLAIN
MISTER AND MISS.

Zara browses through a book.

Zara says STUNNING PICTURES OF HER
IN HERE.

Peter says WE WERE ALWAYS BROUGHT UP
ON THE UNDERSTANDING THAT WE
WERE GONNA HAVE TO GO TO WORK.
WE WERE GONNA HAVE TO GO OUT
AND EARN OUR, EARN OUR LIVING,
REGARDLESS OF THE FACT OF WHO
OUR GRANDMOTHER WAS OR WHO
OUR MOTHER WAS.

Zara says I THINK IT MADE US FIGHT
HARDER, AS WELL, TO TRY AND BE
AS SUCCESSFUL AS WE COULD BE.
ERM, SO I DEFINITELY, YOU KNOW,
WE'RE VERY GRATEFUL TO HER NOT
GIVING US A TITLE, ANYWAY!

Anne says AS A MEMBER OF THE ROYAL
FAMILY, LIVING WITH THAT SORT
OF PRESSURE IS, IS HARD
AND THE EXPECTATIONS THAT COME
WITH IT IS HARD.
AND THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN AT THE
BOTTOM OF THE LIST, THAT IT
MAY BE LESS DIFFICULT FOR YOU.
BUT ACTUALLY, UNDERSTANDING
WHERE THEY SIT WITHIN THE FAMILY
AND WHAT HAPPENS NEXT, IT MADE
MUCH MORE SENSE.

The Narrator says PETER AND ZARA BOTH LIVE
WITH THEIR FAMILIES CLOSE TO
GATCOMBE PARK IN
GLOUCESTERSHIRE.
IT WAS WHERE THEY GREW UP,
A HAVEN FOR THEM AND THEIR
MOTHER.

Peter says IT WAS HER, HER SANCTUARY,
IF YOU LIKE.

Zara says WHEN YOU'RE WORKING, YOU
ALSO, UM, WANT TO BE ABLE TO
THEN GO HOME AND, YOU KNOW,
BE A MOTHER.

Peter says YOU KNOW, SHE WAS TAKING US
OUT, YOU KNOW, ONTO THE FARM AND
HELPING OUT ON THE FARM, HELPING
WITH THE LAMBING AND ALL THAT
SORT OF STUFF.

The Narrator says THEY DIDN'T GIVE THEM
TITLES, BUT PRINCESS ANNE
AND MARK PHILLIPS DID GIVE
THEIR CHILDREN A LEG UP...
INTO THE SADDLE.
CAPTAIN PHILLIPS WAS AN
OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALLIST BEFORE
HE AND PRINCESS ANNE WERE
MARRIED.
FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY, HORSES
WERE WORK, REST AND PLAY.

Zara says IT WAS PART OF OUR LIVES.
WE DIDN'T REALLY KNOW ANYTHING
ELSE.
WE BOTH STARTED OFF WITH A
LITTLE SHETLAND CALLED SMOKY.
WHEN WE WENT UP TO THE STABLES
TO GO AND RIDE, IT WAS A
WORKING PROFESSIONAL YARD.
YOU KNOW, BOTH OUR PARENTS WERE
RIDING.

Peter says IT WAS NORMAL, ESPECIALLY AS
OUR FATHER WON OLYMPIC MEDALS
AND BEING HUGELY SUCCESSFUL IN
THE SPORT.
THAT WAS JUST LIFE GROWING UP.

The Narrator says BUT THE MARRIAGE WASN'T TO
LAST.
AFTER 19 YEARS, THE COUPLE
WERE DIVORCED.
PRINCESS ANNE THEN MARRIED
NAVAL COMMANDER TIM LAURENCE.

Tim says IT'S QUITE AMUSING THAT SHE
MARRIED FIRST AN ARMY OFFICER
AND THEN A NAVAL OFFICER, SO
THERE MUST BE SOMETHING ABOUT
THE MILITARY THAT ATTRACTS HER.
SHE GREW UP WITH HORSES.
HORSES HAVE BEEN PART OF HER
LIFE.
IT'S NOT SOMETHING I SHARE WITH
HER, AND SADLY, I'VE NEVER
BEEN BITTEN BY THE HORSE BUG.

The Narrator says AT THE AGE OF 21, AS A MEMBER
OF THE BRITISH EVENTING TEAM,
PRINCESS ANNE WON GOLD AT THE
1971 EUROPEAN EVENTING
CHAMPIONSHIPS.

(crowd cheering)
An old clip shows Anne in a riding competition.

Tim says WELL, SPORT IS A GREAT
LEVELLER.
IT HAS NO RESPECT FOR WHO YOU
ARE AND IT, ER, IT'S A QUESTION
OF WHETHER YOU SUCCEED.
IF YOU COME FIRST IN A WORLD
EQUESTRIAN GAMES, NOBODY CAN
REALLY ACCUSE YOU OF HAVING
EXTRA FAVOURS BECAUSE YOU'RE A
MEMBER OF THE ROYAL FAMILY.
YOU'VE DONE IT AND IT'S A
GREAT THING TO ACHIEVE.

The Narrator says ALSO IN 1971, THERE WAS
ANOTHER TROPHY FOR THE ROYAL
MANTELPIECE.

The caption changes to "BBC Sports Personality of the Year 1971."

Peter says JUST BEING SELECTED WITH
THAT GROUP OF SPORTS PEOPLE,
HAS TO BE A SIGNIFICANT HONOUR,
ESPECIALLY FROM THE PERSPECTIVE
OF A SPORT THAT DOESN'T GET
THAT LEVEL OF PROFILE.

In a clip, a male host says IT GIVES ME GREAT PLEASURE,
MA'AM, TO PRESENT THIS SPORTS
PERSONALITY AWARD OF 1971.

(applause)

Seb says IT WAS A REALLY IMPORTANT
MOMENT FOR OLYMPIC SPORT
WHEN SHE WON THAT.
SEEING OFF GEORGE BEST AT THE
SAME TIME WAS PRETTY MUCH UP
THERE.
AND OF COURSE, ZARA WENT ON
TO WIN IT MANY, MANY YEARS
LATER.

Old footage plays.

In off, a man says WHICH SECTION OF THE
THREE-DAY EVENT DO YOU ENJOY
BEST?

A young Anne says THE END.

(audience laughing)

The clip ends.

Anne says IT WAS A SLIGHTLY NOVEL...
A NOVEL ENTRANCE FOR EVERYBODY.
I WAS JUST AMAZED TO BE
INCLUDED.

The Narrator says BUT THE OLYMPICS WERE THE
PINNACLE OF THE PRINCESS'S
CAREER, AND BROUGHT EVEN MORE
ATTENTION TO HER SPORT.

Male Reporter 4 says THE QUEEN WAS
DETERMINED TO SEE THE TOUGH
17-MILE CROSS-COUNTRY COURSE
THAT PRINCESS ANNE WILL FIND
ON SATURDAY.

Jane says I WASN'T AT THE OLYMPICS.
I COULDN'T GO.
SO, IT WAS ALL ON THE TELEVISION
WHAT WE SAW.
WHAT I DIDN'T KNOW AT THE TIME
WAS THAT SHE HAD THIS AWFUL
FALL.

Anne says I WAS GOING VERY WELL,
AND THEN, I DON'T REMEMBER
ANYTHING ELSE.

Jane says BUT SHE GOT BACK ON AND
COMPETED.
SHE WAS THAT CONCUSSED THAT SHE
COULDN'T REMEMBER, AND STILL TO
THIS DAY, I BELIEVE, DOESN'T
REMEMBER THE REST OF THE COURSE.

In a clip, a Reporter says NOTHING AT ALL?

Anne says NOTHING AT ALL, NO.

Giving an interview, Seb says IT IS PROBABLY THE MOST
DANGEROUS SPORT ON THE PLANET.
I'VE WATCHED A LOT OF THREE-DAY
EVENTING.
I-I KNOW THE SORT OF THE
COMPETITIVE GRANITE THAT THOSE,
THOSE MEN AND WOMEN ARE MADE
FROM, AND SHE'S ABSOLUTELY HEWN
FROM THAT.

Zara says HER MANTRA FOR LIFE IS VERY
MUCH IF YOU FALL, GET BACK UP
AND TRY AGAIN.

Peter says GET UP, CARRY ON AND MIND
YOUR MANNERS.

The Narrator says ALL THAT EARLY EXPOSURE
INSPIRED THE NEXT GENERATION.
ZARA PHILLIPS WAS A GOLD
MEDALLIST WITH THE BRITISH
EVENTING TEAM, AND WAS FOR FOUR
YEARS WORLD CHAMPION.
IN 2012, SHE WON SILVER AT
THE LONDON OLYMPICS.
HER MOTHER PRESENTED THE AWARD.

Zara says TO BE GIVEN YOUR MEDAL BY
YOUR MOTHER IS, IS PRETTY
SPECIAL.
YOU CAN'T REALLY EVER EXPLAIN
THAT, THAT FEELING.
SHE VERY MUCH, YOU KNOW, KNOWS
WHAT IT TAKES TO ACHIEVE AND
TO WIN.
HAVING THE WHOLE FAMILY COME
AND WATCH WAS INCREDIBLE, AS
WELL.

Peter says IT WAS A REALLY, UM,
SPECIAL DAY.

The Narrator says IN ESTONIA, THE KING'S ROYAL
HUSSARS ARE AWAITING THE
PRINCESS, THEIR COLONEL
IN CHIEF.
SHE'S COMING EAST TO OBSERVE
THEIR MANOEUVRES AS PART OF
A NATO BATTLE GROUP.

Male Soldier 1 says FIRST TIME I'VE DRIVEN A
MEMBER OF THE ROYAL FAMILY.

Male Soldier 2 says I'M BUZZING, I'M REALLY
LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.
IT'S QUITE AN HONOUR TO HAVE
A MEMBER OF THE ROYAL FAMILY
IN OUR TANK.
TELL THE GRANDKIDS.
(laughing)

Angus says THE MONARCHY IS OUR GUIDING
LIGHT, OUR MORAL COMPASS.
HAVING SOMEONE LIKE THE PRINCESS
ROYAL, WHO STANDS FOR THAT
FAMILY AND SHE'S THE HEAD OF
OUR FAMILY, IS INCREDIBLY
IMPORTANT.

Tim says SHE'S HUGELY IN ADMIRATION
OF WHAT THE UNITED KINGDOM'S
MILITARY DOES FOR THIS COUNTRY,
AND SHE WANTS TO SUPPORT THEM.

Male Soldier 3 says IT WAS REALLY GOOD.
SHE'S INTERESTED IN SEEING,
LIKE, VARIANTS OF WHAT WE DO.

Male Soldier 4says IT'S REALLY NICE TO SEE HER
COME OUT AND GET AMONGST ALL
THE LADS.

Anne says I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT THAT
THEY RECOGNIZE THAT THERE IS
SOMEBODY FROM OUTSIDE THE
MILITARY WHO MIGHT UNDERSTAND
WHAT THEY'RE DOING.
THEY ARE WORKING VERY HARD SO
THAT'S, I HOPE WHAT THEY FEEL
IS BEING ACHIEVED.

The caption changes to "Lt Col Angus Tilney. King's Royal Hussars."

In his forties wearing a white military shirt, Angus says WE ALL KNOW HER AND WE'VE ALL
FELT THAT PERSONAL TOUCH THAT
SHE BRINGS.
ER, AND HER ABILITY TO TALK
TO EVERYONE, OF ANY RANK, OF
ANY AGE IS SOMETHING THAT WE
ALL LOVE ABOUT HER.

Male Soldier 5 says SO, AS ROYAL ENGINEERS, WE'RE
SETTING UP BATTLEFIELD
SIMULATIONS FOR THE ATTACK
THAT'S GONNA HAPPEN.

Angus says THE CHALLENGER 2 IS A HUGELY
EFFECTIVE PIECE OF EQUIPMENT.
THERE ARE IN LIFE UPGRADES
GOING ON AT THE MOMENT.

Anne says THERE'S ALWAYS THE
TECHNOLOGY TO CATCH UP ON,
'CAUSE THAT'S CHANGING ALL
THE TIME.

Angus says IT'S QUITE A FULL-ON
ENVIRONMENT.
IT'S LOUD, IT'S NOISY.

(helicopter blades whirring)

Jane says SHE LOVES GOING IN ANY OF
HER ARMY VEHICLES.
SHE LOVES DRIVING THE TANKS,
FIRING THE GUNS.

(gunfire)

Angus says THERE'S A HUGE AMOUNT GOING
ON.
I WAS IMPRESSED BY ACTUALLY
HOW MUCH SHE IMMEDIATELY
UNDERSTOOD.
RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE, SHE GOT OUT
HER PHONE AND STARTED FILMING,
WHICH IS WHAT PEOPLE DO TODAY.
ER, SHE DOESN'T STAND ABOVE
AND BEYOND IT, AND SHE'S
TERRIBLY HUMAN.

The Narrator says WHEN SHE WAS VERY YOUNG,
PRINCESS ANNE WOULD JOIN
PRINCE CHARLES WATCHING THE
QUEEN AT THE GRANDEST MILITARY
CEREMONY OF ALL.
IT'S AMONG HER FIRST MEMORIES.

Anne says WELL, THE EARLIEST ONES, OF
COURSE, WERE THE, ER, TROOPING
THE COLOUR, THE BIRTHDAY PARADE.

The Narrator says TODAY, THE PRINCESS ROYAL
INCREASINGLY HELPS OUT THE
QUEEN - AND NOT JUST IN
MILITARY CEREMONIES.
SHE ALSO TAKES A KEY ROLE
IN THE MOST EXCITING CIVIL
EVENT, THE INVESTITURES.

Anne says I DIDN'T THINK I WOULD EVER
BE ASKED TO DO AN INVESTITURE.
IT'S A REAL PLEASURE.
I'M DELIGHTED TO BE ABLE TO GO
ON DOING THOSE.

An old man wearing a gala uniform says THESE ARE ALL BRITISH EMPIRE.
THAT'S A CBE.
AND THEN, OVER THERE IS THE
SWORD THAT THE PRINCESS ROYAL
WILL BE USING FOR THE
INVESTITURE TODAY.

Tim says THE HONOURS SYSTEM IS A
WONDERFUL WAY OF RECOGNIZING
INDIVIDUAL PEOPLE AROUND THE
COUNTRY THAT MAKES THIS COUNTRY
GREAT, RATHER THAN, YOU KNOW,
BIG COMPANIES OR POLITICIANS.

Brenda says THIS IS IT.

Brenda unrolls a document.

The Narrator says JOURNALIST BRENDA EMMANUS
IS TO RECEIVE THE OBE FOR
SERVICES TO BROADCASTING
AND DIVERSITY.

The caption changes to "Brenda Emmanus. Broadcaster." Brenda is in her forties, with shoulder-length curly black hair and bangs. She wears a black dress.

Brenda reads "HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN MAY BE
GRACIOUSLY PLEASED TO APPROVE
THAT YOU BE APPOINTED AN
OFFICER OF THE ORDER OF THE
BRITISH EMPIRE."
She says IT'S REALLY QUITE AMAZING
AND QUITE HUMBLING.
MY MOTHER WAS SO PROUD.
IT'S THE FIRST TIME I'VE SEEN
HER GENUINELY BURSTING WITH
PRIDE.
CHOOSING WHAT TO WEAR TOOK
FOREVER.
THAT'S THE COAT.
BUT I'M NOT SURE WHAT THE
FORMALITY IS, WHETHER YOU KEEP
YOUR COAT ON OR TAKE YOUR COAT
OFF WHEN YOU GO UP TO DO YOUR
BIT.

A man says GO STRAIGHT UP THE STAIRS.

The Narrator says TODAY, 65 RECIPIENTS AND
THEIR FAMILIES HAVE TRAVELLED
TO BUCKINGHAM PALACE.
LINDA LONGSTAFF HAS COME FROM
SUNDERLAND TO RECEIVE AN MBE
FOR HER WORK AS A HOSPITAL
CHAPLAIN.

An old woman says ABSOLUTELY OVERWHELMED.
WHAT A DAY!
AND TO BE WITH MY HUSBAND AND
MY TWO GIRLS.
IT'S WONDERFUL.

The Narrator says FOR MOST PEOPLE, THIS WILL BE
THEIR FIRST CONTACT WITH THE
ROYAL FAMILY.
BRENDA'S MUM HAS BOUGHT A NEW
HAT.

Sitting on a wheelchair, Brenda's mother says I FEEL VERY PROUD THIS
MORNING.
YES, I AM.
BECAUSE OF MY DAUGHTER.

Brenda says COMING TO GET THIS,
IT'S QUITE A THING, ACTUALLY,
IT'S STARTING TO HIT ME.

An elderly man wearing a gala uniform says THE PRINCESS ROYAL LIKES
TO SPEND A CHUNK OF TIME
TALKING TO EACH RECIPIENT.
SHE'S REALLY GOOD AT IT.
SO, YOU KNOW, WE TAILOR THE
NUMBERS ACCORDINGLY.
SHE DOES HER HOMEWORK WITH HER
STAFF, ON EACH PERSON, SO THAT
SHE KNOWS THEIR BACKGROUND
STORY AND WILL REMEMBER EACH
ONE AS THEY COME UP.
SHE'S EXCEPTIONAL AT IT.

Guests arrive at the ceremony.

Anne says PEOPLE WHINGE ABOUT HAVING
AN AWARDS SYSTEM.
BUT ACTUALLY, THIS ONE DOES
WORK, AND I THINK ON THE WHOLE,
THE DECISIONS MADE HAVE BEEN
GOOD, AND THEY DO REFLECT,
I THINK, APPROPRIATELY
THE IMPORTANT ISSUES.

Tim says THE SYSTEM ITSELF GETS A BIT
OF FLACK BECAUSE OCCASIONALLY
SOMEBODY CONTROVERSIAL GETS AN
HONOUR, BUT THE AWARD OF AN MBE
TO SOMEBODY WHO'S BEEN
BEAVERING AWAY FOR 10 OR 20
YEARS SUPPORTING SOME
CHARITABLE CAUSE IS A, IS A
MASSIVELY IMPORTANT PART OF
OUR NATIONAL LIFE, I THINK.

Wesley says THIS IS ABSOLUTELY THE HEART
OF WHAT THE MONARCHY DOES.

Nicholas says BECAUSE THE PRINCESS HAS BEEN
GOING ROUND THE COUNTRY FOR 50
YEARS-ISH, SHE-SHE WOULD GIVE
AN MBE OUT TO A HEALTH WORKER
AND THE LADY WOULD SAY,
"I REMEMBER WHEN YOU OPENED
THE GENERAL HOSPITAL IN NORTH
ALLERTON IN 1980."
AND THEN, THE CONVERSATION
WOULD GO ON FROM THERE.

Anne says TALKING ABOUT, UM, "WE'VE
MET BEFORE."
THAT HAPPENS MORE IN
INVESTITURES THAN I CARE
TO THINK.
AND THEN, OFTEN A BIT OF A
CHALLENGE.
BUT, THERE YOU GO!
(laughing)

Brenda whispers SHE WAS LOVELY.
SHE REALLY DOES HOLD A
CONVERSATION WITH YOU, 'CAUSE I
WAS REALLY WORRIED WHAT TO SAY.
AND SHE KNOWS ABOUT YOU, AS
WELL.
SHE ASKED ME I PREFER BEING IN
FRONT OF THE CAMERA OR BEHIND.
SHE KNEW A LOT ABOUT MY ARTWORK.

Looking at a medal, the old woman says OH, IT'S BEAUTIFUL, ISN'T IT!

Nicholas says SOME OF THE PALACE
AUTHORITIES THOUGHT THE
PRINCESS'S INVESTITURES WENT ON
A BIT TOO LONG, BUT IT GAVE
ENORMOUS JOY AND PRIDE TO THE
RECIPIENTS, WHICH AT THE END OF
THE DAY IS WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT.

In an old clip, Male Host 1 says HELLO.

Male Host 2 says HELLO!

Female Host says AND THAT WAS A PREVIEW OF
PRINCESS ANNE AND ME ON OUR BLUE
PETER ROYAL SAFARI.

The clip ends.

The Narrator says THE PRINCESS ROYAL HAS SPENT
50 YEARS BRINGING THE
SPOTLIGHT TO THE VAST ARRAY
OF CHARITIES SHE REPRESENTS.
IT ALL BEGAN IN 1970, WHEN SHE
BECAME PRESIDENT OF SAVE THE
CHILDREN.

Anne says I DON'T KNOW WHY THEY ASKED
ME 'CAUSE PATENTLY, AS A
19-YEAR-OLD, UM, WHO'D DONE
VERY LITTLE, THAT WAS QUITE
A INTERESTING, ERM, RISK.

The caption changes to "Valerie Singleton. Broadcaster."

In her seventies wearing a floral jacket, Valerie says THE PRINCESS GETS THIS
WONDERFUL NEW ROLE.
ROYAL EVENTS BEFORE THAT, SHE'D
MAYBE BEEN, YOU KNOW, WITH HER
MOTHER AND FATHER, OR MAYBE
WITH PRINCE CHARLES.
THIS TIME, IT WAS, YOU KNOW,
IT WAS HER FILM.

In a clip, Valerie says DO YOU LIKE FLYING?

A young Anne says WELL, ACTUALLY, I WOULDN'T
CONSIDER IT ONE OF MY FAVOURITE
FORMS OF TRANSPORT.

Back at the present, Valerie says PROBABLY THAT FIRST INTERVIEW
WAS A LITTLE BIT AWKWARD
BECAUSE IT WAS THE FIRST
TIME SHE WAS DOING IT, AND IT
WAS THE FIRST TIME I WAS DOING
IT.
ONCE WE GOT INTO KENYA,
IT BECAME MUCH MORE RELAXED.
SHE'S VERY NATURAL, SHE WAS VERY
EASY WITH THE CHILDREN.
I THINK SHE WAS ENJOYING THE
FILM, BEING THERE AND BEING,
LET'S FACE IT, SHE WAS THE
CENTRE OF ATTENTION, BUT SHE
ABSOLUTELY KNEW ALL ABOUT THE
SAVE THE CHILDREN FUND.
AND SHE ABSOLUTELY WASN'T GOING
TO MAKE ANY MISTAKES, SHE'D DONE
HER HOMEWORK.

The Narrator says 50 YEARS AFTER SHE JOINED
THEM, HER ROYAL HIGHNESS IS
STILL ON THE HEADED NOTEPAPER
AND ON THE BOARD.

Anne says I SUPPOSE IT TOOK ME ABOUT
10 YEARS TO WORK OUT JUST HOW
SAVE THE CHILDREN FUNCTIONED.
SO, I DIDN'T SAY MUCH FOR ABOUT
TEN YEARS.
IT WAS A GOOD ORGANIZATION TO
LEARN FROM, BECAUSE IF YOU'VE
GOT CHILDREN INVOLVED, IT'S
ABOUT HEALTH, IT'S ABOUT
EDUCATION.
IT LINKS TO ALL SORTS OF OTHER
THINGS.

Nicholas says THE PRINCESS HAS A REALLY
INQUISITIVE MIND, AND A HUGE
KNOWLEDGE ACROSS THE WORKINGS
OF ALL HER CHARITIES.

Seb says THE GREAT ADVANTAGE OF HAVING
THE PRINCESS ROYAL SITTING AT
YOUR BOARDROOM TABLE IS THAT
WHEN YOU HAVE SOMEBODY OF THAT
BANDWIDTH OF EXPERIENCE, IT
ALLOWS YOU TO MAKE MUCH BETTER
AND INFORMED DECISIONS.

The Narrator says THE PRINCESS DELIVERS
EXPERIENCE AND EXPOSURE TO
MORE THAN 300 CHARITIES
AND PATRONAGES.
IT WAS THE REASON THAT IN 1987
THE QUEEN MADE HER PRINCESS
ROYAL.

(applause)

The Narrator says WHEN TROOPING THE COLOUR'S
OVER FOR ANOTHER YEAR, THE
HOUSEHOLD CAVALRY HEAD FOR
THE BEACH.
IT'S TIME FOR THE HORSES'
SUMMER HOLIDAY.

An aerial view shows people riding horses by the sea.

The caption changes to "Lt Col Paddy Williams. Blues and Royals."

In his late forties with a white military shirt and a brown military hat, Paddy says WE COME OUT HERE TO GET
THE HORSES AWAY FROM LONDON.
WE'RE REALLY LUCKY TO BE ABLE
TO TAKE THEM FOR A COUPLE OF
BEACH RIDES, GO FOR A CANTER,
SLASH GALLOP, AND WE TAKE THE
HORSES SWIMMING.
SOME OF THEM LOVE IT.
SOME OF THEM ARE A BIT
RELUCTANT TO GET IN THE WATER.

The Narrator says THEIR COLONEL ALSO ENJOYS
THE SEASIDE.
TODAY, SHE'S DROPPING IN FOR
A PRIVATE VISIT, HORSEPLAY
AND A SPOT OF LUNCH.

The caption changes to "Major Jeremy Sudlow. Blues and Royal."

In his late thirties, Jeremy says EVERY YEAR, SHE COMES UP
AFTER THE QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY
FOR A DRINK IN THE MESS, AND
OCCASIONALLY TO SOME DINNERS,
UM, BUT NOT TO SUMMER CAMP
REGULARLY.
SHE CAME UP, UM, WELL, SHE WAS
DUE TO COME UP LAST YEAR, BUT
UNFORTUNATELY, HER HELICOPTER
BROKE DOWN!

The Narrator says COLONEL ANNE, AS SHE'S KNOWN,
ARRIVES WITHOUT FUSS OR
FORMALITY, AND JOINS IN THE
CAMP ACTIVITIES.

Paddy says IT'S A BIT MORE OF A RELAXED
ENVIRONMENT, AND IT'S GREAT TO
BE ABLE TO SEE, YOU KNOW, OUR
COLONEL, COME ALONG TO CHAT TO
LOTS OF SOLDIERS AND THE
OFFICERS, TO MEET THE HORSES,
TO GO FOR A RIDE.
IT'S JUST A REALLY GOOD WAY TO
DO A VISIT.
COLONEL, WE HAVE OSCAR FOR YOU
TO RIDE LATER.

The Narrator says MAJOR HARRIET TELFER IS A
REGIMENTAL VET, USED TO
TALKING HORSE WITH THE
PRINCESS.

Harriet Telfer is in her thirties, with tied-up hair. She wears a camouflage uniform and a black military hat.

Harriet says I MEAN, CLEARLY HER HORSE
KNOWLEDGE IS... IS OUTSTANDING.
EVEN AS A CLINICIAN, I SORT OF
WORRY THAT SHE KNOWS MORE THAN
I DO ABOUT THE HORSES.
AND YOU'D THINK THAT WOULD BE
INTIMIDATING, BUT IT ISN'T,
BECAUSE SHE PUTS YOU AT EASE.

Anne says YOU SEEM TO HAVE AN EMPTY
BOX.

Paddy says YOU SEE COLONEL ANNE GO UP
TO SOLDIERS, AND AT FIRST THEY
ARE REALLY NERVOUS.
RIGIDLY NERVOUS.
AND AS SOON AS SHE STARTS
TALKING, AND TALKING ABOUT
SOMETHING THEY KNOW, THEY JUST
INSTANTLY RELAX.

In off, man 1 says COLONEL, WE'VE GOT YOU ON
JAVELIN, WHICH IS THE COLONEL'S
HORSE.

Anne says OH, JAVELIN.
I THOUGHT YOU SAID OSCAR.

Man 1 says WELL, IT WAS OSCAR.
I'VE TAKEN ADVICE FROM YOUR
RIDING MASTER.

Anne says SO, YOU'VE SPREAD THE BLAME
ALREADY.

Man 2 says YEAH, ABSOLUTELY!

Man 1 says ER, I RODE JAVELIN YESTERDAY
ON THE DRILLS AND SHE WAS VERY
GOOD, ACTUALLY.

Anne says NO, FAIR ENOUGH.

(horse snorting)

The Narrator says IT'S NOT TROOPING THE COLOUR,
BUT THE DAY STILL HAS SOME OF
THE INGREDIENTS THE PRINCESS
ENJOYS.
DUTY, PRECISION AND HORSES.

Riding a horse, Anne says NO, WALK ON, NOT BACKWARDS,
THANK YOU.

The Narrator says THE PRINCESS WAS BORN AS
POST-WAR BRITAIN WAS BEING
RECAST.
THE PROCESSES THAT SHAPED THE
NATION HELPED TO SHAPE HER,
A ROYAL FOR THE NEW AGE.

Seb says SHE IS VERY UNCOMPROMISING,
AND SHE IS INCREDIBLY LOYAL.

Sarah says I'M SURE SHE WOULD NEVER
SELF-IDENTIFY AS A FEMINIST,
BUT YOU KNOW, SHE'S A WORKING
WOMAN, AND FEMINISM IS AS
FEMINISM DOES.

Nicholas says THERE'S NOTHING SHE'S NOT
PREPARED TO TACKLE.
SHE KEEPS HERSELF VERY FIT
AND JUST GETS ON WITH IT.

The Narrator says FRANCES SEGELMAN PETCHEY HAS
FINISHED HER SCULPTURE.

Frances says THIS IS VERY MUCH LIKE
ELIZABETH I.
HER HAIR, THE WAY IT GOES UP.

The Narrator says THANKS TO COVID-19, THE
SUBJECT HERSELF HASN'T SEEN
IT YET.

Finishing the sculpture, Frances says WE'RE HOPING THAT PRINCESS
ANNE WILL UNVEIL IT FOR HER
BIRTHDAY IN AUGUST.
I THINK IT'S ELEGANT, AND I
THINK IT'S IMPOSING AND I
THINK IT'S HER.
SHE IS A VERY ELEGANT, SERENE,
STRONG LADY.

The Narrator says AT THE START OF HER EIGHTH
DECADE, THE PRINCESS ROYAL
COULD JUST PUT HER FEET UP.

Nicholas says SHE WON'T BE SPENDING HER
WEEKENDS AT HOME WITH HER
SLIPPERS ON.

The Narrator says SHE'S MORE LIKELY TO BE
WEARING SEA BOOTS.

Tim says OUR IDEAL OF A, ER, A BREAK,
IF WE HAVE A BREAK, IS TO GO UP
TO OUR BOAT ON THE WEST COAST
OF SCOTLAND.
ER, SPEND A FEW DAYS SOMETIMES
GETTING WET AND COLD.

Anne says IT IS VERY NICE TO BE ABLE TO
DO IT JUST TOGETHER.

Tim says I NAVIGATE.
I KNOW HOW TO GET FROM A TO B,
BUT SHE'S A BETTER, ER, SAILOR
OF THE BOAT.
SHE, SHE'S, SHE'S BETTER AT
SETTING THE SAILS AND THAT SORT
OF THING.

Zara says I'M SURE SHE TELLS THE
ADMIRAL WHAT TO DO.

Peter says SHE'S ALSO AN ADMIRAL.

Zara says OH, YEAH, SHE IS.

(laughing)

Peter says I THINK SHE'S SLIGHTLY MORE
SENIOR THAN HE IS, AS WELL.

Zara says I'M SURE THEY TELL EACH
OTHER.
LUCKILY... YOU WOULDN'T GO ON
A BOAT WITH THEM, WOULD YOU?

The Narrator says FOR THIS SENIOR ROYAL SENIOR
CITIZEN, STOPPING IS CLEARLY
OUT OF THE QUESTION.
BUT THERE IS ANOTHER S WORD.

Anne says SLOW DOWN, I THOUGHT I HAD
SLOWED DOWN.

RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE SURE THAT
YOU KIND OF KNIT THAT KNOWLEDGE
TOGETHER, AND PASS THAT ON.
