Princess Anne to Make History by Following in Prince Philip's Footsteps

Princess Royal is highly tipped to take over as Captain General of the Royal Marines, a post previously held by the Duke of Sussex, who stepped back from royal duties in March 2020.

A source close to Princess Anne has told The Sunday Times that she is reportedly "very keen" to take on the role.

The Queen's only daughter would be following in the footsteps of her late father, the Duke of Edinburgh, who held the role of Captain General of the Royal Marines for 64 years until 2017. Anne would also make history, being the first woman to hold the position.

The Princess, 70, is patron of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity as well as being Commodore-in-Chief for Portsmouth. She carries out hundreds of engagements with her military patronages and affiliations every year and usually tops the hardest working royal list.
