This would only be true if Ann is considered to be 2 people, the Princess Ann and the non-princess Anya. And the conversations that she has with herself about things not related to men are all internal.

Doesn't Ann talk to her assistant(?) about her schedule for the day right before her anxiety attack?

Her assistant (chief lady in waiting) is Countess Vereberg... and yes, I recall a conversation between her and Princess Ann about Princess Ann's schedule early in the film.

Audrey Hepburn's character, Princess Ann, has a long conversation with her Margaret Rawlings' character, Countess Vereberg. If you don't believe me, here's a piece of the relevant script:

Princess Ann: I hate this nightgown. I hate all my nightgowns, and I hate all my underwear too.

Countess: My dear, you have lovely things.

Princess Ann: But I'm not two hundred years old. Why can't I sleep in pajamas?

Countess: Pajamas?

Princess Ann: Just the top part. Did you know that there are people who sleep with absolutely nothing on at all?

Countess: I rejoice to say I do not.

And if the few quotes aren't enough, here, watch most of the scene on YouTube:

Next time, you might want to consider actually SEEING the movie.

This movie passes 3 out of 3. End of discussion.
