We all know that she is a daughter of the British ruler, Queen Elizabeth II, and her husband Prince Philip. However, unlike the most members of the royal family, she does not appear in media a lot and she is not present in news.
She was born on the 5th August 1950, and she is younger than Charles for two years. She was the second in line for the throne before the Queen and Prince Philip got another two sons, i.e. Andrew and Edward. This is all in accordance to the Act of Settlement of 1701.
This year saw an important royal tradition and rule changes. Namely, the Succession to the Crown act has been brought and it states that the first born child would be the ruler, regardless of the gender. Also, male members of the royal family would not have the precedence in comparison to the female ones.
We should also mention that she has been the only member of the royal family that was sentenced due to a crime. Also, she has been almost kidnaped.
She has two marriages behind her. The first time she married to Captain Mark Phillips. He is known to be have taken part in the Olympics as an equestrian. They got two children, Peter in 1977 and Zara in 1981. These children do not have titles since their father did not have one. Even though the Queen wanted to give them titles, their parents refused this. Anne is a grandmother since Peter has two daughters.
Her official title is Princess Royal and she remarried to Sir Timothy Laurence on the 12th December in 1992.
She is one of the busiest members of the royal family and she is constantly working. This is the reason why her net worth is estimated at 30 million USD. However, we need to mention that her grandfather made a trust for her and she also gets annual amounts from the queen.
