Queen Elizabeth's only daughter is said to be celebrating her birthday in a low-key fashion

Princess Anne turns 70 on Saturday, and ahead of her special day, Buckingham Palace has released several new photos of Queen Elizabeth's only daughter.

In the first image shared to the royal family's official Twitter account, Anne is pictured wearing a green outfit as she gazes into the camera.

In a second photo, Anne -- wearing a plaid flannel and jeans -- stands in front of a tree and looks off into the distance.

The pictures were taken by John Swannell at Anne's home in Gatcombe Park back in February, according to the tweet.

According to Anne's son-in-law, Mike Tindall -- he is married to Anne's daughter, Zara -- the family had planned to mark his mother-in-law's milestone in Scotland but alternative arrangements had to be made due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“I’m sure we’ll do something as a family to celebrate her 70 amazing years. She’s just an incredible woman in terms of how much work she can get through in the year,” the former England rugby player told the BBC earlier this week. “We will be doing something. As yet, I don’t know whether she knows, so my lips are sealed.”

Anne, whose formal title is Princess Royal, is widely admired for her work ethic, sporting pedigree -- she competed as an equestrian in the 1976 Olympic Games -- and for a particularly dry British sense of humor that she donned with such effect during a kidnapping attempt in 1974.
