Princess Anne (wearing her Festoon Tiara, Empress Maria Feodorovna’s Sapphire Choker, the Royal Family Order of Queen Elizabeth II, and the Badge of the Royal Victorian Order) and Captain Mark Phillips officially open the annual Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, Ontario’s biggest horse and agricultural show, at the CNE Coliseum in Toronto, Canada on this day in 1974. After arriving in a carriage, the Princess inspected the guard of the 48th Highlanders of Canada, presented prizes, and then the couple viewed the proceedings from a stand.

Note- I visited the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in 2010, and sadly there were no Princesses in Tiaras around then ☹️.
