Princess Anne will be visiting in my area later this month. (I live in horse country - Kentucky.) The people in charge of media coverage sent out an overwrought advisory about what was going to happen and when. All through the document they referred to her as "Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal, Princess Anne." Surely that can be shortened a bit on second reference. How are royal titles/names handled in the British press?
