Princess Anne also received a birthday greeting from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who sent well wishes via Twitter.

Two years ago, Anne spoke with Vanity Fair in an extensive interview, where she ruminated on her upcoming 70th birthday, and the plans that were in the works at Buckingham Palace to celebrate her milestone birthday.

 “Well, it would be nice if it were just another year passed,” she said at the time, “but I don’t think that’s going to happen.”
