Hi @Gfigs, thanks for taking the time to report this!

navigate to https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anne,_Princess_Royal and press "download as PDF".

I cannot find any "Download as PDF" on that (mobile) page. Is this maybe something provided somewhere by your browser instead?

Anyway, the problem is unrelated to printing - you can see the same problem on a narrow screen:

This needs to be fixed in the Infobox template on English Wikipedia. User scripts, gadgets, templates, custom CSS are local on-wiki content. Local content is managed independently on each wiki, by each wiki community themselves. Please bring this up on that wiki, e.g. on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)#toc . Hence I am closing this task here - thanks for your understanding!

apologies, link I gave was for mobile, hence should be the download Pdf icon..

@Aklapper apologies for editing..could this not go here ?

Yes (or whatever module or template is used on that wiki page).
