Ahead of Princess Anne's 70th birthday on Saturday (15 August), the Royal Family's official Instagram page has begun posting a photo series of the princess' life. Each day this week, it will focus on a different decade in her life and shari photos.
Announcing the sweet tribute in a post on Saturday (8 August), the page shared a swipe along of childhood photos of the princess and her family, writing: "Next Saturday, The Princess Royal will turn 70! 🎈
"Princess Anne Elizabeth Alice Louise, the only daughter of The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh, was born on 15th August, 1950."
It continued: "Over the next seven days, we’ll be taking a look back at each decade of The Princess’ life."
Posting the images to Instagram Stories, the page saved them as highlights so they won't disappear after the standard 24 hours. The pictures are annotated to tell the princess' life story and so far cover events including her mother's coronation when she was just three, and her first official engagement at age 18.
You can watch the growing set of photos on the Instagram highlight here, and maybe learn something new about the princess' fascinating 70 years.
Happy birthday, Princess Anne!
