If Princess Anne hadn’t been born into the British royal family, she’s still have taken her place in history – but probably as an athlete and sports journalist. She’s a regal Leo, and still expects the traditional recognition of her position – the curtseying that her nephew, Prince William, recently rejected. But her 50th birthday portraits depicted two women, the bejewelled Princess Royal (her proper title, one given on merit alone) and the other, a fit countrywoman. She seems more comfortable in this guise. With three planets in the earthy - and frequently self critical - Virgo, she’s practical and has a healthy sense of irony. She also gets things done. Her hands-on approach to charity means frequent gruelling trips to highlight their work. And then there’s sport. She promotes athletics and is a champion horsewoman. All this is indicated by the courageous Mars, powerfully positioned in her birth chart. It also explains the fearless streak that, initially, emerged as a rebellious and frequently rude teenager. Now it’s earned her respect, so much that those who propose Princess Anne for king are only half joking.
