Zara Phillips

Zara Anne Elizabeth Phillips (born May 15, 1981) is the daughter of Anne, Princess Royal, the 9th in line to the British throne, and her first husband, Captain Mark Phillips. She herself is 11th in the Order of Succession.

Zara Phillips was educated at Port Regis Prep School and at British Salem School in Gordonstoun, Scotland. Zara, like her mother, is an equestrian sportswoman. Unlike her mother, she has a pierced tongue.

She has one brother, Peter Phillips. Though a grand-daughter of Queen Elizabeth II, her parents decided that neither of their children would receive peerages. In addition, since Captain Phillips never received a title as a consequence of his marriage, they do not have courtesy titles.
