Zara Phillips to debut logo of grandma's bank at Badminton

Currently busy preparing for the Badminton horse trials, which will get underway on Thursday and in which she's due to compete on her beloved mount Toytown, Zara Phillips is set to debut a new sponsor at the event.

The three-day eventing world champion - who'll also ride Ardfield Magic Star (pictured) in the competition - will compete wearing the three crown logo of Coutts – the bank where her royal grandmother holds an account

Toytown, a 16-year-old gelding, missed much of last year's competitions – including the Olympic Games – due to injury, but Zara is brimming with confidence about their chances at the Gloucestershire trials. 

"Badminton is where he should be," the 27-year-old royal insists. "It’s the one everyone wants him to win, and it's very exciting to have him here."
