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.
