The documentary, Anne: The Princess Royal at 70, shows the life of the Queen’s daughter on her Gloucestershire estate Gatcombe Park with her husband Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence. Princess Anne has been widely known among royal fans for her extensive schedule which has featured around 500 public engagements a year for half a century.
The programme sheds light on the Princess Royal’s hard-working nature, prompting viewers to express their admiration on Twitter.
One Twitter user wrote: “Pleased #PrincessAnne is getting some positive publicity.
“For me, she should be next in line to the throne.
“She is intelligent, loyal, hard working and down to earth. A definite role model for future generations.”
Another added: “Watching HRH Princess Anne, The Princess Royal on ITV…. One of my favourite royals.
“Hard working, genuine, fun and family-oriented. Happy Birthday Your Royal Highness!”
A third fan wrote: “Princess Anne is the future Queen that never will be, isn’t she? Let’s face it that woman is committed.”
Another user added: “Princess Anne is the future Queen that never will be, isn’t she? Let’s face it that woman is committed.”
In a quick remark, the Princess Royal added: “Actually, you don’t need me. You know what I look like!”
The conversation left viewers commenting how amusing the conversation between the two was.
One social media user wrote: “One is amused. Awesome.”
Another fan said: “Brilliant. Princess Anne is great and it’s been lovely watching the Queen during lockdown. Can’t wait to watch this.”
While most other royals have their own social media accounts to share their content to, Princess Anne prefers to show her work on the Queen’s Royal Family platforms.
The documentary shows the Princess humorously explaining her views on Twitter.
She said: “I wouldn’t go anywhere near it if you paid me frankly.”
“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 mean, I know what Twitter is but I wouldn’t go anywhere near it if you paid me frankly. But that’s a slightly different issue.”
