Princess Anne’s Face Mask Holds a Very Special Meaning to the Monarchy
Princess Anne is getting back to business, and she’s making sure to do so in royal style.
As members of Queen Elizabeth’s family are slowly beginning to attend royal engagements after a five-month hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, a handful of them have opted to wear reusable cloth face masks. However, the Princess Royal just kicked things up a notch by wearing the most regal PPE we’ve ever seen—a mask monogrammed with her official cypher given to her by the monarchy.
We were delighted to welcome our Patron, HRH, The Princess Royal to @cabharlow on Friday 11th September 2020 to discuss the work we do for the #Harlow community & to present certificates to our long standing volunteers. #teamharlow pic.twitter.com/35u2dlzCnC?

On Tuesday, during a visit to the Citizens Advice Harlow, a volunteer-run counseling and advice service, the 70-year-old royal sported a white cotton mask that features a small crown above an “A” for Anne. The next day, she wore the piece again while stopping by the “Monsters of the Deep” exhibition at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall.

If you didn’t know, each member of the royal fam has a similar cypher. In fact, per Vanity Fair, Camilla Parker Bowles gifted the Duchess of Cambridge a gold bracelet that featured her “K” cypher after her wedding to Prince William.
Sure, us plebeians can get our hands on a variety of regular masks if we please, but this, in our opinion, is next level. Look, we’re not putting down Kate Middleton’s demure Liberty print mask from Amaia London or Meghan Markle’s seersucker mask from the brand Royal Jelly Harlem, we’re just simply pointing out that Anne’s model l holds the most royal significance. We can’t imagine a more fashionable way to represent her family.
In all seriousness here, no matter what type of mask these royals wear, we’re just glad that they’re taking the proper precautions to keep themselves, and everyone else, safe.
