Following the attack at London Bridge on Friday 29th November that left two dead and three injured, the Princess Royal visited the City of London to sign a book of condolence. The attack began at Fishmongers Hall before bystanders managed to stop the suspect near London Bridge, Princess Anne is the fourth warden of the Company of Fishmongers and had visited the organization only two weeks prior.

The attack saw heroic action from civilians who managed to subdue the suspect and keep him restrained until emergency personnel arrived. First responders were at the scene less than five minutes after receiving the initial call and managed to get everyone else on the bridge to safety before killing the attacker after spotting a faux explosive device.

The Queen issued her own statement about the event, offering her deepest sympathies to those affected by the attack and expressing her gratitude to first responders and the individuals who risked their lives to stop the attacker.

Princess Anne is often known for her no nonsense approach to her Royal duties, preferring to keep a low profile with her events often not publicized until after when posted on the Royal Family's social media. Therefore it can be hard to project when her next appearance will be. Fans can expect to see the Princess Royal alongside other members of the Royal Family during Christmas at Sandringham.
