A royal aide estimated that she completes at least 500 royal engagements per year.

However, on the documentary Anne relieved her terrible kidnapping attempt ordeal of 1974.

She said on handling the debacle: “One thing about horses and sport is you have to prepare for the unexpected. You’ve got to think through the problems that are likely to occur.

“I suppose that was the discipline which to some extent coloured my thought processes.”

Meanwhile, the Queen paid tribute to her daughter on Instagram, posting three new unseen photos.

Addressing her some 8.2 million viewers, the photos are accompanied with: “New photographs have been released to celebrate the 70th birthday of Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal tomorrow, 15th August.
