Princess Anne, the current Princess Royal

Princess Royal is a style customarily (but not automatically) awarded by a British monarch to his or her eldest daughter. The style is held for life, so a princess cannot be given the style during the lifetime of another Princess Royal (in particular, Queen Elizabeth II never held the title). There have been seven Princesses Royal in total. [1] Currently Princess Anne is the Princess Royal. This title came into existence when Queen Henrietta Maria (1609-1669), daughter of Henry IV, King of France, and royal consort of King Charles I (1600-1649), wanted to imitate the way the eldest daughter of the King of France was styled "Madame Royale." The style is granted by Royal Warrant not created by Letters Patent. It is not automatically given to the eldest daughter, but is conferred at the discretion of the reigning sovereign.
