  • Education

Summary

A special documentary marking Princess Anne's 70th birthday, as she talks openly about her life and work, and the reality of growing up as a member of the Royal family. Throughout the programme, Princess Anne talks frankly about a family in which women tended to be seen as 'honorary men', about the challenges for younger royalty, about a bloody kidnap attempt, and about refusing titles for her children, Peter and Zara.

Review

Over the years, Princess Anne seems to have earned herself a reputation for being imperious. But for viewers of a certain age, she’s thought of as the most accessible Royal, thanks to footage of her walking along a beach in Kenya with Valerie Singleton on Blue Peter, competing in the 1976 Olympics and giggling alongside Emlyn Hughes on a 1987 edition of A Question of Sport watched by 19 million.

As she nears 70, it seems that her schedule remains busy, as cameras follow her on a typical day of hospital visits, helipad openings as well as the odd charity dinner. No previews were available, but we’re also set to hear her views on everything from online tech to wearing tiaras.
