Anne’s best thrifty outfits as she rewears 30-year-old coat in Scotland



Princess Anne pulled off the ultimate sustainable fashion trick as she carried out four engagements in Scotland on Monday.

The royal, 73, wore a green tweed jacket with gorgeous velvet detailing along the collar and pockets.

Anne first debuted the look in 1990 and wore it at several royal engagements in 1996, including on a visit to Dunblane in Scotland with her late mother Queen Elizabeth. 

It’s not the first time the Princess Royal has opted to rewear her clothes however, as she often chooses to rewear outfits to royal engagements. 

Here, looks at some of Princess Anne’s thrifty looks that she’s debuted over the years.

Wearing a tweed coat with a green velvet collar, Anne carried out two engagements in Lockerbie, a town just 15m from the border with England.

She started with a visit to the MacRebur plastic company, where she received a tour of the factory and learned about the company’s manufacturing and testing process.

Anne then travelled two miles to Lockerbie’s Garden of Remembrance at Dryfesdale Cemetery in Dumfries where she paid tribute to the victims of the UK’s deadliest terrorist attack in 1988.
