Princess Anne led by example as she donned a face mask for her latest engagement, and fans were very impressed with the royal design.

The Queen's daughter visited Citizens Advice Harlow, which she is patron of, to chat to staff and members.

She learnt about how they are working with the community amid the coronavirus pandemic and presented dedicated members with certificates.

In keeping with the government's guidelines, the Princess Royal wore a face mask for the occasion, opting for a white covering with her royal cypher embroidered on it.

All members of the royal family have cyphers, which they use on their stationary and in other official situations.

Fans loved her personalised mask and were quick to comment on social media.

One wrote: "That’s the best looking mask I’ve ever seen!"

Another added: "She’s always had sass and is so cool" and a third wrote: "I like that. Looks elegant."

We've now seen lots of members of the royal family wearing face masks, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Camilla, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

However they have opted for less royal designs, either picking floral or colourful numbers.

But Anne isn't the first person to use her cypher to accessories, and Camilla bought Kate a charm bracelet featuring hers when she joined the royal family.

The gold bracelet, which was a wedding present, has a gold disc engraved with a C for Catherine and a coronet on one side, and a crown and C for Camilla on the other.

As well as their own individual designs, married couples have given a joint design which they use on their joint correspondance.

However Meghan and Harry were heavily criticised earlier this year when they used theirs in a heartfelt letter to a charity despite quitting the royal family.

Their letter to sports charity StreetGames, which helps young people in disadvantaged areas, left many fans fuming.

One person commented: "They need to take that crown out of that M logo."

A second said: "No royalty-no crown!!"

However other fans rushed to Meghan and Harry's defence, and one commented: "She’s still royal, a Duchess and married to the son of a future king. There’s no reason for the coronet to be removed."

Some also pointed out that Princess Diana and Sarah Ferguson continued to use their cyphers after they divorced Charles and Andrew, meaning they were officially no longer royal.
