The Princess Royal has told British Olympians that this year’s Games will be “different, but no less important” as she recalled the “single-minded focus” needed to compete.

Princess Anne, 70, was the first member of the Royal Family to compete in the Olympics when she rode the Queen’s horse, Goodwill, in the equestrian three-day event in Montreal in 1976.

As president of the British Olympic Association, she recorded a good luck message for Team GB ahead of Tokyo 2020, which starts on Friday, wishing them every success.

“Although I am sad not to be there in person, I and the whole nation will be cheering for you and proudly supporting you from home,” she said.
