King Charles and Princess Anne stood together when he delivered the new Sovereign’s Standard to the Household Cavalry’s Blue and Royals squadron, of which Anne is Colonel.

During the brief ceremony at Buckingham Palace, Charles expressed “great pride” in the bond between the Blues and Royals and the monarch, while the country faces “an array of threats” and “difficult times.”

The presentation of the new sovereign’s standard attracted 35 soldiers and 27 horses to the quadrangle, but Princess Anne’s hat drew the attention of reporters once more.

The Telegraph’s Royal Correspondent commented on Twitter, “The return of the infamous red plume!”

“No concerns about Prince Harry’s view being blocked today as Princess Anne joined the King to present a new sovereign’s standard to the Blues & Royals,” she said.

Roya Nikkhah, a royal specialist, said at King Charles’ Coronation that a source claimed the plumage position prompted “much hilarity among the family” about where it landed up.

Royal supporters flocked to social media to share their delight. “Last time Prince Harry was obscured by a huge candle,” one fan remarked. This time, it’s because of Princess Anne’s hat.”

The feathery blockade of Prince Harry’s view of the ceremony occurred only moments after he entered Westminster Abbey and greeted Princess Anne as she seated.
