Oink! Princess Anne Loves Chatting to Her Pet Pigs

Oink! Princess Anne Loves Chatting to Her Pet Pigs

There were many revelations about the Princess to mark her 70th birthday. But this one has to take the cake!

Oink! Princess Anne Loves Chatting to Her Pet Pigs

In her guest-edited issue of Country Life magazine she makes a surprising admission about her Gloucester Old Spots pigs.

Speaking about her rare breeds of animals, she lists the likes of the Buff Orpington hens, White Park cattle, Wiltshire Horn sheep as well as the Gloucester Old Spots, which she said were “very chatty”. She often chatted to them as she fed them.

In her feature, Princess Anne calls for a better future for the countryside, as well as speaking about her “love and understanding of the natural world through their own experiences”.

She shared: “Perhaps even more so for my father when, during his rather disjointed young life, he ended up at school at Gordonstoun and was introduced to the wilds of Scotland, both land and sea. Scotland had its influence on my mother, too, as did the big skies of Norfolk, and the huge fields and marshes of the Sandringham Estate.”

And Princess Anne – who turned 70 on August 15 – really showed off her “passion” for the countryside whilst guest editing.

Country Life’s Editor-in-Chief, Mark Hedges, shared: “It was an absolute delight to have The Princess Royal as our guest editor. Her passion for the countryside shines through with every feature, combined with her concerns that the right action is taken to safeguard the rural way of life for future generations, from providing affordable housing to dealing with fly tipping. We do hope our special edition makes a very fitting 70th birthday present.”
