Princess Anne joined the Queen during her week-long official tour of Scotland to visit one of the last wild spaces in urban Glasgow.

The area was once a football pitch but is now full of nature and known as The Children’s Wood.

A video shared to the official Royal Family Instagram account showed clips of the re-wilded space as the Queen and her only daughter, Princess Anne received a tour.

The Queen wore a striking royal blue coat dress and hat, which was adorned with flowers. Princess Anne wore a smart grey tweed blazer and skirt suit with a sky blue scarf.

A message alongside the post explained that, “The Queen and The Princess Royal visited one of the last wild spaces in the west-end of Glasgow: The Children’s Wood.”

It added that the area is now “an important place for the local community: people of all generations come here to walk their dogs, picnic, garden, play and enjoy being in nature.”

Members of the public left supportive comments on the post and some remarked on the similarities between Princess Anne and her mother saying, “She is witty, smart and loyal to her country and duty. She definitely resembles Her Majesty in so many ways.”
