Zara, Princess Anne’s daughter, is perfectly positioned to take on a key role.
PRINCESS Zara Tindall, Anne’s daughter, is not a working royal, but she may be the best candidate to take on one of her mother’s most important public roles in the future.
Princess Anne, 71, was the first member of the British Royal Family to compete in an Olympic Games and now serves on the International Olympic Committee. The Princess Royal arrived in Paris on Sunday to wrap up an Olympic-themed vacation, something her daughter, Olympic equestrian Zara Tindall, could be in line to accomplish in the future.
Anne visited key officials from the Olympic and Paralympic Games during her time in Paris, which will host the 2024 Games.
Anne is also the Honorary President of the British Olympic Association, and she met with representatives from the 2023 France Rugby World Cup as part of her role as patron of the Scottish Rugby Union while in France.
Zara inherited her mother’s passion for horses and would have loved to see the exhibition of the Garde Republicaine’s equine abilities that Anne was given to on Monday.
In 2012, Princess Anne presented her daughter Zara with her Olympic silver medal, which she won in a team event in the London Olympics.
Zara was a “natural” with horses, Princess Anne said Vanity Fair in 2020, which is somewhat surprise given that her parents were also equestrians.
“She was quite rightfully incredibly successful,” she noted, citing Zara’s hard work on top of genetics.
Mark Philips, Zara’s father, was Princess Anne’s first spouse and won a gold medal in the 1972 Munich Olympics.
Zara has continued to compete in equestrian events, despite the fact that she now has three children.
Along with the horse parts of her tour, Princess Anne will witness a good amount of diplomacy and science.
The Princess Royal planted a tree in the garden of the British Ambassador’s residence in France on Sunday.
The tree is part of the Queen’s Green Canopy initiative, which aims to increase the number of trees planted across the United Kingdom.
It was designed to commemorate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022, and this tree is the first to be planted in a British Embassy as part of the program.
Representatives from Australia were present during the ceremony, according to the “Brinkwire Summary News.”
