Question FANY badge query

I am sorting through my FANY badges and found this badge, it is of recent manufacture IMO and as the FANY are still in existence and actually recruiting according to their website I am wondering if it is a currently worn badge by the unit.

Any help welcome, thanks for looking.

I believe that they are now called "PRINCESS ROYAL VOLUNTEER CORPS"

Thanks Jerry, I am not sure as to whether this badge is an original or a repro, depends on the date of title change.

You can find their history here on goggle - Fany princess royal's volunteer corps
The FANY was officially renamed the Princess Royal's Volunteer Corps in 1999, after being given permission by Anne, Princess Royal to use her title, and is now referred to as FANY (PRVC). The original name has greater recognition, and greater prominence even in official publications and on its website.

Again, thanks Jerry, I did look it up and the website is very informative, it was late last night, so I did not post.
