Biography

 

The Queen’s granddaughter and 14th in line to the throne, Zara Phillips follows in the footsteps of both parents, Captain Mark Phillips and HRH Princess Anne, in competing at the Olympics.

Captain Phillips won team gold at Munich 1972 and team silver at Seoul 1988. She had been selected for Beijing 2008 but her horse, Toytown, suffered an injury in training, just as it had ruled her out of selection in 2004.

 

At the 2012 Olympics in London, Phillips won silver in Team Eventing with partners Nicola Wilson, William Fox-Pitt, Mary King and Kristina Cook.
