The Princess Royal spent the week visiting NHS sites and meeting with doctors and patients. On Tuesday she officially opened a new NHS Blood and Transplant Blood Centre in Barnsley. This centre offers specialist training labs, blood and organ compatibility testing, and specialist nurses to assist with organ donation.
These volunteers are a part of the Butterfly Volunteer Service, which was set up in 2016 and has helped facilitate over 7,000 support visits.
One social media user wrote: “I admire Princess Anne’s tenacity and no-nonsense approach.
“She works very hard and I have not heard any complaints from her as she goes about her duties. I respect her.”
The 70-year-old princess will celebrate her 71st birthday next month.
Another royal fan commented saying: “She is like Her Majesty, always doing her duty!”
Many fans owe their dedication to the monarchy to Princess Anne who always manages to shine the institution in a good light.
“She works so hard, yet takes so little credit.
“I was not a royalist in my 20s, but I changed my mind in my 30s, when I realised just how much Princess Anne does and has done, and how much value the monarchy adds to the UK.
“Thank you for doing it,” a royal watcher noted.
Her yellow blazer for the event was very impressive and looked beautiful in the sunshine.
The Princess Royal released a video last week sending good luck to Team GB ahead of the Tokyo Olympic Games.
She is the president of Team GB and has a long history associated with the Olympics dating back to 1976 when she participated in the equestrian team in Montreal.
Princess Anne then even presented her daughter Zara Tindall with a silver medal in the 2012 London Olympic Games for the same sport.
