The 65-year-old royal - who is patron of the Scottish Rugby Union (SRU) - attended the match at St. James' Park in Newcastle to witness Scotland's 33-36 victory over Samoa.

Princess Anne - who is the only daughter of Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh - was visibly thrilled when captain Greig Laidlaw hurled the ball into the crowd to celebrate Scotland making it into next week's quarter finals.

The Scotland rugby team - which also includes Stuart Hogg, David Denton and Josh Strauss - are set to face Australia in their next match following their win over Wales.

Princess Anne - whose daughter Zara is married to former England rugby captain Mike Tindall - is a long-time supporter of Scottish rugby and was also spotted at their matches in the Six Nations tournament earlier this year.

The much-loved royal - who is also patron of Gloucestershire Rugby Football Union - previously saw her son Peter play for Scotland's under-18s team while he was enrolled at Gordonstoun school in Scotland.
