While female members of royal families are known for setting fashion trends and wearing expensive designer outfits, Princess Anne remains the cost-conscious Princess.

The Princess Royal, the second child and only daughter of The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh, was born at Clarence House, London, on 15 August 1950.

The Princess Royal who is known for her charitable work believes in reusing and wearing outfits more than once and has famously recycled a number of items of her wardrobe.

In 2008 the Princess caused a stir by turning up at the wedding of Lady Rose Windsor, daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, in the same dress she wore at Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer's marriage 27 years before.

Another outfit that made a comeback is a midnight blue dress that was dug out in 1999, 23 years after she first wore it at a function in Berlin in 1976.

When asked about her frugality, Princess Anne said: "A good suit goes on forever. If it is properly made and has a classic look you can go on wearing it ad infinitum.

"The economy is bred into me. My parents believe that things are not to be wasted" the Daily Telegraph reported.

The Princess Royal is in South Africa on a visit to celebrate the diamond jubilee of the reign of Queen Elizabeth.
