If there is one Olympic sport that Britain’s Princess Anne isn’t going to miss, it’s the Equestrian event. She was there as a member of the International Olympic Committee and also to support the British team as they competed in Beijing.
The Princess Royal might be feeling bittersweet about the whole experience. Her daughter, Zara Phillips, should have been at the Olympics had it not been for an injury sustained by her horse Toytown just a few weeks shy of the Games.
Nevertheless, the Princess found a lot to cheer about, as the British Equestrian team will be taking home the bronze in The Team Eventing.
