Tuesday July 31, 2012

With several members of the royal family watching, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Zara Phillips is continuing her bid for Olympic equestrian success.

Germany were leading in the nailbiting competition at Greenwich Park, south east London with the British riders in second.

During her round, the Queen's granddaughter clipped a fence and incurred a time fault, meaning she went over 83 seconds.

Despite her disappointing performance on Tuesday the equestrian royal said that the whole week had been "amazing."
