Princess Anne, daughter to Queen Elizabeth II and sister to Prince Charles, has recently turned 70 and, to mark the special occasion, the Royal Family has released a couple of sweet portraits of the Royal.

On Saturday, three brand new photos of Princess Anne were shared on social media, in which fans can see her wearing three very different attires.

It has been reported that the snaps were all taken on the same day in February, during one of the Princess' rare breaks, by photographer John Swannel, who has been photographing her for the last 40 years.

CELEBRATING IN STYLE

It is also known that the pictures where taken at the Royal's private Gloucestershire home, at Gatcombe Park, where she lives with her husband, Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence.

In the first picture, Princess Anne is seen sitting on a chair while wearing a pearly dress created by retired designer Mauren Baker, who also designed her wedding dress.

LOCAL TALENT

For the second snap, the Royal opted for an emerald dress by Sue Palmer, a local designer who created the bolero for the first birthday portrait.

In the third and final shot, Princess Anne went for a more casual look, ditching the beautiful and fancy dresses for a comfortable and warm country outfit.

THE CHIGNON

But, although every attired differed from one another, the Princess' iconic and trademark chignon made an appearance in every single one of the photographs.

The 70-year-old also admitted that she watched a few of the early "The Crown" episodes

The hairstyle has been Princess Anne's go-to for several decades now and was recently replicated by actress Erin Doherty, who portrays the role of Queen Elizabeth's daughter in "The Crown."

According to Doherty, it can take up to two hours to perfectly recreate Princess Anne's famous chignon, a fact that really took the Royal by surprise.

In response, Princess Anne said that it takes her around 10 or 15 minutes to get her hair done, which was why she didn't understand why it took them so long to copy her hairstyle.

The 70-year-old also admitted that she watched a few of the early episodes, describing them as "quite interesting," but that she doesn't watch the show anymore.
