The Princess Royal reminisced about sailing in her younger years as she made her first in-person appearance at an official event since her father's death.

Anne appeared in good spirits as she met with members of the Royal Yacht Squadron (RYS) on the Isle of Wight on Wednesday – the prestigious club Prince Philip was once admiral of.

The Princess, 70, spoke fondly of her "links" and "early memories of sailing" at the west Cowes-based club, and took time to speak to senior members and a group of aspiring young sailors.

Anne – the only daughter of the Queen and the Duke – wore sunglasses, a navy blue jacket, black trousers, shoes, gloves and carried a black handbag for the occasion.

She smiled as she spoke with some of the younger sailors and asked about their sailing experience.
