Princess Anne is setting the record straight on her iconic hairstyle.
In an interview with Town & Country last year, Erin Doherty, the actress who portrays a teenage Anne in Netflix’s The Crown, revealed that recreating the Princess Royal’s updo would take hours at a time.
"Makeup literally took 10 minutes, but hair, sometimes it would take two hours. Literally, I would sit in the chair, people would come in and go and come in and go, and I sat still in the same place," she told the outlet. "But it was so necessary for her character because it felt like her hair and her fashion were the way that she was able to express herself in the confined, controlled environment that she grew up in.”
