Princess Anne joined the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh on a State Visit to Singapore on this day in 1972, the second stop of a massive Tour of Southeast Asia, which began in Thailand, and was followed by visits to Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, the Seychelles, and Mauritius. The highlight of the visit was a Banquet hosted by President Benjamin Sheares in honour of the Queen (wearing the Girls of Great Britain & Ireland Tiara), Duke, and Princess (in the Cartier Halo Tiara) at the Istana.

At the end of the visit, the Queen (wearing the Vladimir Tiara), Duke and Princess Anne (in Princess Alice’s Meander Tiara) hosted a Return Banquet for the President and Prime Minister on board the Royal Yacht Britannia.
