Princess Anne is so down to earth! Despite being a member of the royal family, the 70-year-old still took time out of her day to visit the home of the Greater Cambridge Shared Waste Service in Cambridge, England, on Wednesday, March 24.

During her outing, Queen Elizabeth's daughter met with waste and recycling collection crews and praised them for their work during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

In photographs obtained by PEOPLE, Anne is seen laughing with crew members, who were all wearing bright orange uniforms. Meanwhile, Anna bundled up in a coat, scarf and gloves while out and about.

Just one day earlier, Anne's daughter, Zara Tindall, gave birth to her third child named Lucas Philip Tindall — a.k.a. Anne's fifth grandchild — on Sunday, March 21.

"A little baby boy arrived at my house!" Mike Tindall said on his podcast, adding that Zara's friend, Dolly Maude, was "fortunately" at their home "and recognized that we wouldn't have got to the hospital in time."

"So, it was run into the gym, get a mat, get into the bathroom, get a mat on the floor, towels down, 'brace-brace-brace,'" Mike — who also shares daughters Mia, 7, and Lena, 2, with Zara — said.

"Fortunately, the midwife, who was going to meet us at the hospital wasn't that far away, so she drove up, got there just as we'd assumed the pos-ish [as he called the position]. And then the second midwife arrived just after the head had arrived," he continued, adding that Lucas “arrived very quickly ... on the bathroom floor."

"The best thing about being at home ... was as soon as he was wrapped up, it was skin on skin, TV room, golf on. 'This is what me and you are doing!'" Mike gushed. "There was actually Bath versus Wigan [rugby] game was on, and then I watched the final day of the golf."

"The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh are delighted with the news and look forward to meeting their 10th Great Grandchild when circumstances allow," Buckingham Palace said in a statement. 

This is Anne's first grandson, as Zara and Mike share two daughters, while Anne's son, Peter Philips, has two girls: Savannah, 10, and Isla, 8.
