Zara shows dressage dress-sense

Few royals hold the same fashion clout as Zara Phillips.

This week the Princess Royal's only daughter has been showing that she can smile through the rain to look good on horseback.

Zara donned fetching white jodhpurs, a black bowler hat and matching jacket, complete with tails and no doubt some comfortable knee high socks under her boots for the World Equestrian Games at Normandie's Le Pin National Stud in France.

She put off the inevitable by wearing a practical navy tracksuit for the warm-up.

But when she had to remove her waterproofs for day five of the event on Thursday, the 33-year-old royal grinned through the rain on her horse, High Kingdom.

Zara has an enviable track record in the sport.

She took Eventing's World Championship in Germany's Aachen during 2006 and was voted BBC Sports Personality of the Year later that year.

This was a prize won by her mother, Princess Anne, 35 years earlier.
