What do you wear to your nephews wedding?
Its a tricky one. You want something rememberable and head-turning without detracting from either the bride or her mother.
So in this instance, that meant white (naturally) and green were out of the equation for Princess Anne.

The founder of Playboy, the late Hugh Hefner, seems to have owned a very similar get-up the Princess.
