Zara Phillips' Txapela

Strictly speaking, I am a subject of H.M. Queen E-II, but despite pledging loyalty to the Crown (to obtain a NZ passport), I know very little of the monarchs on their far-away island. 
Imagine my surprise when finding that one of them has actually taken to wearing a txapela! Ms Zara Anne Elizabeth Phillips(born 15 May 1981) is the second child and only daughter of Princess Anne, Princess Royal and her first husband, Captain Mark Phillips. She is the eldest granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, and is twelfth in the line of succession to the British throne.

  1. Thanks to her mother, the Princess Royal, Anne is pretty cool.
