Princess Anne stunned in red for a Commonwealth Day service today causing a royal fan frenzy.

The Princess Royal joined the Queen, Prince William and the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh for a special service in London.

The princess arrived at Westminster Abbey in a red, flowery coat and matching scarf accessorised with a duck-egg blue hat.

Anne paired the coat with a bright blue, knee-length dress, navy-blue warm gloves and a black bag.

This is not the first time Anne has worn the outfit. The princess has stepped out in the elegant red coat during her tour of Canada last year.

Princess Anne often re-wears her clothes for public engagements and uses clothes handed down to her by the late Queen.

Royal fans gushed over the princess’s outfit describing her coat as “beautiful” and “gorgeous.”

The Princess Royal wore the ‘Grace Coat in Venetian Red’ from the brand, Shibumi.

One fan said: “Oh my goodness. That coat is simply exquisite.”

Another added: “I think this is my favourite Princess Ann look. Fabulous.”

In 2023, the Princess Royal wore the same outfit during a royal tour in Canada where she paired the outfit with a brooch.

She also re-wore the coat to Ladies Day at Newmarket racecourse in 2021, but protected herself from the sun with orange tinted sunglasses.

An admirer of the royal’s look said: “Look at Anne go! She rocks this fabulous coat like a rock star! Luv it! Would love to have that coat!”

Princess Anne’s coat currently sells on the official Shibumi site for £425.

The website describes the coat as: “A classic women’s Nehru Coat in bright red cashmere, which is our biggest seller as it is such a flattering style for all shapes and sizes. It has a smart mandarin collar, which is so elegant.

“There are no vents on this women’s wedding coat, it has neat slit pockets and small covered buttons down the front; however, it looks best when worn open, as a frock coat.”

The princess attended the event to celebrate Commonwealth Day with other senior members of the Royal Family.

King Charles missed the service today as he continues cancer treatment but released a video to mark the occasion.

The monarch has paused all his public-facing engagements since he was diagnosed with an undisclosed form of cancer in February.

The Queen led the Royal Family for the service in absence of her husband who is the head of the Commonwealth.
