Princess Anne met with unpaid carers, supported by charity Carers First, last week to mark the 30th anniversary of the charity.

The Princess Royal, who is president of Carers Trust and known for her work supporting vital care charities, attended the anniversary event to hear about the ways in which unpaid carers are supported by Carers First.

For the event, Princess Anne looked stylish in a tweed jacket and skirt combination. The Royal complemented this look with splashes of yellow and wore her hair in an updo. She greeted and spoke with carers, while wearing a face mask due to coronavirus restrictions, and appears to have cut a celebratory cake to celebrate the charity's anniversary.

The Princess Royal is known for her charity work supporting the care sector. Earlier this year, in May 2021, she launched a Respite Fund for unpaid carers as part of her role as president of Carers Trust. The Respite Fund aims to provide small grants to 30,000 unpaid carers, so they can "take a much-needed break from the constant demands of their caring role."

The Princess Royal has been president of Carers Trust since 2012.
