Why Princess Charlotte won’t ever be your common alternative inheritor

It might just be the family resemblance, but we’re getting it too Princess Anne Mood – although due to the archaic system of male primogeniture at that time, the queen’s second oldest child was not even considered a surrogate heir than her younger brother Prince Andrew was born and stays lower on the ladder than any three of her brothers’ six children.

But Anne, despite being a full-time queen who has surpassed her brother Charles in official engagements for most years, was at the same time the image of a modern, independent-minded family member – one who did not bestow her son. Peter Phillips, and daughter, Zara Tindall, royal titles to promote their own independence from the crown. Anne was an accomplished horsewoman and free to pursue her dream (“at least for a limited time,” she told Vanity Fair). She was the first British Queen to take part in the Olympics. Otherwise, she has devoted most of her public life to various charities, notably Save the Children, of which she has been president since 1970. And much like many women in her family, she has been hailed as a fashion icon herself right.
