After Princess Anne (played by Erin Doherty) emerged as the breakout star of The Crown season three, many have wondered what the royal was like in real life. Yes, she actually dated Andrew Parker Bowles before her brother Prince Charles romanced Camilla. She's known to have a passion for riding horses and sporting stylish headwear. She even endured a kidnapping attempt in 1974—an event that didn't make its way into the third season. Ahead, take a look back at Anne's real-life moments that took place at the same time as the third season of The Crown to refresh yourself before the fourth season is released on November 15.
