She’s never cared what she looks like or what people think of her, which can make her appear standoffish.

She’s been known to joke about racy subjects at formal dinners, which surprises her guests and is a real

Anne smuggled him about in a horsebox while they were courting, their antics fictionalised in the Private Eye column (then book) Love in the Saddle, all thrilling rides and thrusting mounts.
