Inside kidnap bid on Princess Anne that saw her held at gunpoint and three men shot
Princess Anne left her held at gunpoint with a ripped dress as three men were shot in the terrifying ordeal.Anne, Princess Royal, survived her kidnapping attempt back in 1974 after an Escort driver, Ian Ball, attempted to capture the Princess who had just visited Buckingham Palace with her at-the-time husband, Mark Philips.Princess Anne's car had come to a stop and Ball jumped out brandishing a pistol, with personal protection officer to the Princess Royal, Inspector James Beaton, attempting to detain Ball.READ MORE: German magazine 'Die Queen' frontpage misinterpreted in awkward translation blunderHe suffered a gunshot wound to the arm after his Walther PPK jammed and Ball opened fire.Two other men were injured by Ball including Anne's chauffeur and a nearby journalist who had attempted to intervene.Ball then approached Anne and told her he intended to kidnap her and hold her ransom, with various sources citing anywhere between £2million to £3million.He claimed to want the hostage money to give to the National Health Service to fund its mental health treatment, and told Anne to get out of the car, to which Anne allegedly responded: "Not bloody likely."Boxer Ronnie Russell, who happened to be passing at the time, attacked Ball and bought the Princess Royal some time for police to arrive, and as a reward he was given the "Jorge" medal and the mortgage on his home was paid off by the Queen, WBA reported.Princess Anne confirmed the story years later on an interview appearance where she also spoke of a rip she received to her dress at the time.She said: "It got slightly rougher at one stage - we did in fact - when he shot the policeman and we managed to close the door, he got the door back open."But in the process of getting

Princess Anne eyed up unusual career choice in case royal family were abolished
Princess Anne might be the hardest-working member of The Royal Family but she has a secret career lined up should she ever need to get a job.Despite rarely giving interviews, the only daughter of the late Queen often carries out more public engagements than any of her relatives but also works behind the scenes.The Princess Royal, 72, shunned London life and instead lives a much quieter life at Gatcombe Park, Gloucestershire, surrounded by her two children, Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips.READ MORE: From Page 3 models to reality stars: Celebrities who dated and married royaltyDuring an interview with Terry Wogan in 1985, the princess was faced with the question, what would she do if the monarchy was abolished?While many would have been left speechless, she had the perfect response: "I'd have to work even harder on the farm.I think it's rather difficult to tell now what career I'd have liked to have pursued."But Terry left the Princess amused when he revealed she had actually passed her test and had a heavy goods vehicle driving license."Out of necessity, I qualified as a heavy goods vehicle driver," before adding: "I was actually asked if there was anything I could do, if as you mentioned The Royal Family was abolished and just like that."On the basis of if one didn't have a farm to work on or there was no other alternative, both my husband and I have heavy goods vehicle licenses."His is a HGV one and mine is a HGV three so it seemed like a very logical way of earning ones living."There is in fact quite a demand for good horse box drivers, we know one end of a horse from another, we thought we could probably crack that one between us."While Anne may be a sophisticated royal, many would be shocked to discover that Anne's
