Speaking of the Princess Royal, 72, author Robert Hardman – who wrote Queen of Our Times: The Life of Elizabeth II – praised the king’s younger sister for being committed to the family, amid Prince Harry’s explosive memoir Spare, out this month will.
“She’s an example that even if you’re clearly destined for a supporting role, that doesn’t mean you can’t contribute,” Robert told the Times.
The journalist also nodded to the fact that Anne’s father – the late Prince Philip – had given her “solid parental guidance”.

He added that a good stand-in in particular doesn’t pay too much attention to what the press says about him or take on too many projects, but instead focuses on what he’s good at and where he can “make a difference”.
Robert noted that Anne “saw the dangers of royalty” and understood the merits of her own situation and embraced the role.
The princess has managed to become the favorite of royal fans through her work and attitude.

Anne was nominated for the 1990 Nobel Peace Prize by President Kenneth Kaunda of Zambia for her work as President of the charity Save The Children.

The Duke of Sussex, 38, wrote in Spare that he grew up knowing he was there to give Prince William, 40, an organ donation should he need it.
“I was born in case anything happened to Willy,” he said, claiming his parents and grandparents even referred to him and his brother as “heir and surrogate” as a sort of “shorthand.”
He described his life as a “mission to provide a source of distraction, entertainment, and, in an emergency, a spare part” such as a kidney, blood transfusion, or bone marrow.
Harry, who is two years younger than Prince William, explained how this notion of “inheritance” and “inheritance” has been reinforced throughout his life.
He said this idea of being in the world, just in case something happened to William, became “absolutely clear” to him from an early age and was “regularly reiterated” throughout his life.
