It goes without saying: Princess Anne, along with Queen Camilla, is certainly holding down the fort as her brother, King Charles, navigates his cancer diagnosis, announced by Buckingham Palace earlier this week. But Anne’s stiff upper lip is augmented by her innate sense of style. This week, she stepped out wearing a purple jacket beloved by her late mother Queen Elizabeth II and a chic pair of suede riding boots from House of Bruar ($355) that are a near-exact replica of a pair worn by her daughter Zara Tindall just last week.

Princess Anne chose her mom’s coat and the House of Bruar boot for a visit to G.H. Hurt & Son this week as part of her role as President of the U.K. Fashion and Textiles Association. It’s the first time she’s publicly worn a piece from her late mother’s closet, but not the first time she’s taken a page from her daughter Zara with these equestrian-inspired boots.
In late January, Anne stepped out wearing the House of Bruar style for another engagement at the Reaseheath Equestrian College; and it was also only last week that Anne’s daughter Zara donned a similar pair, the ‘Regina’ leather boots from Fairfax & Favor.
As luck would have it, both Anne and Zara’s go-to pairs are still in stock, so you can shop them below. If the price is too steep, we pulled a more affordable backup option that still accomplishes the same royal vibe.

We love the length of the tassel, but also the black suede hue.
OK, so the tassel is more discreet, but this affordable option offers a similar vibe.
The dark hue, the modest heel, the tassel—sartorially speaking, Anne and Zara’s choice of boots have quite a bit in common. And leave it to Anne to pair them with a nostalgic nod to her mother, the late Queen (pictured below, wearing her purple jacket in 2005).
