Today is Princess Anne's 59th birthday, HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANNE. I only have 2 souvenirs for Anne but the sampler is very special, beautifully hand embroidered to commemorate her birth in 1950 it includes a poem by Patience Strong. I bought it on ebay about 2 years ago and I was the only bidder so it was not expensive. The plate, bought at a local antique fair is from the marriage in 1973 of Anne and Mark Phillips. I was living in London at the time and their wedding was the first royal parade I had seen, loved it so much I have been back many times for major royal events.
