According to Thomas Mace-Archer-Mills, the Queen’s only daughter, Princess Anne is the “hardest-working” Royal Family member. The founder of the British Monarchist Society claims the “no-nonsense” Princess could receive Prince Harry and Prince Philip’s royal and military patronages. He said this is due to the fact that she commands the respect of the armed forces.
Princess Anne should receive Prince Harry and Prince Philip’s patronages
Thomas Mace-Archer-Mills points out that Princess Anne’s husband, Vice-Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence, is a military man. According to him, the Princess Royal’s “no-nonsense” attitude is what the military is about.
Speaking to The Daily Star, Mace-Archer-Mills says Princess Anne is very happy where she is. He said she is just like her father and is not one for fuss. In fact, Anne has regularly been considered as being the hardest-working member of the Royal Family.

Mace-Archer-Mills says it would be shocking if the princess isn’t at least given the opportunity to take up or decline these patronages. He adds that Princess Anne is no-nonsense and duty “to the point.”He says she tells it straight and that is what the military is about. Mace-Archer-Mills says that, in fact, her very demeanor is ideal for her late father’s patronages.
Sharing royal and military patronages
Buckingham Palace previously announced that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were stripped of their remaining royal roles after their move to California. Their patronages were returned to the Queen and are awaiting redistribution among the remaining working royals. Those likely to receive the patronages include Prince William, Kate Middleton and Princess Anne.
Meanwhile, Prince Philip was associated with 992 organizations, either as Patron, President, or Honorary Member. However, these patronages were returned to Queen Elizabeth following his death.

Since that time, Princess Anne and her husband Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence have attended two commemorative services on behalf of the Royal Family. One was the Anzac Day Dawn Service at Wellington Arch. Here, the Princess Royal laid a wreath at both the Australian and New Zealand War Memorials. She also signed the book of remembrance.
Following this, the couple attended the Anzac Day Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey.
Princess Anne constantly does what is expected
According to Mace-Archer-Mills, Princess Anne constantly does what is expected of the Royal Family. He explains that there is a big difference between her work and that of Prince Harry. This means she will be picking up a lot of work in the coming years as the “Crown is down a player.” The hardest working royal is sure to be the one to pick up the slack.
Mace-Archer-Mills says there are several patronages open that have been returned from Prince Harry to Queen Elizabeth.
