Princess Anne eats peculiar dish to help her stay fit and healthy aged 71

As a prominent member of the royal family, Princess Anne is often in the public eye as she performs her duties on behalf of the Queen.

In fact, the Princess Royal was hailed last year as a hard-working man, having made more engagements than any other member of the company.

The Queen’s only daughter has a distinct sense of style, and she has managed to maintain a neat figure throughout her life.

Gloucestershire Live reports that, according to an expert, her diet, particularly her fondness for fish, and busy lifestyle is what keeps her going at an age when many take their feet.

“We know that Princess is also a fan of smoked herring – a dish that’s high in protein,” Charlotte Norton, M.D., medical director at The Slimming Clinic told The Express.

“As we get older, we run the risk of losing muscle mass – protein helps with weight loss efforts because it keeps you full for longer.

“Other foods I imagine she eats regularly are salmon, whole eggs, and grass-fed beef (to name a few).

“I also believe that Princess Anne will consume more small meals and snacks throughout the day – she will not go more than three hours without eating.”

Anne, who had to self-isolate over Christmas after her husband Sir Timothy Lawrence tested positive for Covid-19, is choosing wisely when attending formal banquets and dinners.

She is also careful when at home in Gloucestershire and has been known to enjoy black bananas for breakfast.

Her fondness for oily fish high in omega-3s was revealed when a free letter she sent to Fortune Kippers, a 140-year-old company based in Whitby, was announced.

The perfect British tomb, a completely butterfly-shaped and smoked herring, was popular in the Victorian and Edwardian eras, but fell out of fashion in the 1970s.

Anne’s taste should come as no surprise to them as the Queen is also known to be squirrel-friendly and smoke haddock for breakfast and dinner.

But Norton believes the royals do more than just cut calories by avoiding sugary foods to stay healthy.

“At any age, maintaining a healthy weight is always important, but as people get older, it becomes more difficult,” she said.

“The fact that Princess Anne personifies good health shows that she should lead an active and healthy lifestyle.

“As you get older, you lose muscle mass. Strength exercises can help compensate for that.”

But she is clearly not a foodie. MailOnline once claimed to serve at dinner parties anything “that melts faster,” with boiled potatoes and peas or green beans, followed by icing chocolate for dessert.

It’s clear that whatever she eats is working for her as Princess Anne reclaimed the crown for the toughest member of the royal family in 2021 after Prince Charles snatched it away from her in 2020.

According to an analysis by The Times, she has made two more moves compared to her older brother who was a runner-up.

Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, has 235 official missions, Prince Edward 204 and his wife, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, carried out 194 missions.

The Queen, who will turn 96 in April, has made 184 engagements, many of them in person or over the phone.
