Description

The only daughter of Princess Anne and famously dubbed a 'rebel Royal', Zara Phillips has long been the subject of media interest. However, her considerable sporting success received little attention until she won gold at the 2006 equestrian World Championships. In this insightful biography, Brian Hoey looks beyond the public image to reveal the real Zara, from her parents' divorce and her mother's subsequent remarriage, to her relationships with other royals including Prince William and Prince Harry, her sense of style and love life, and her rise to the top of equestrian eventing. Zara's story is a fascinating tale of determination, the search for independence and the will to succeed on her own merit.show more

Back cover copy

Daughter of the Princess Royal. Granddaughter of the Queen. Champion Sportswoman. Meet Zara Philips. Zara Philips was born into a life of wealth and privilege. Her Royal status ensured that she was in the public eye from an early age, but it was her triumph at the 2006 Equestrian World Championships that thrust her squarely into the spotlight and secured her place as an iconic public figure. This is Zara's story, from her earliest years and her relationships with other Royals, to her love life, the independent streak that saw her branded a 'Royal rebel' and her emergence as a world-beating sportswoman. It is a fascinating tale of determination, the search for independence and the will to succeed on her own merit. Brian Hoey is the official biographer of the Princess Royal and has written more than twenty-four books, including Her Majesty, Snowdon: Public Figure, Private Man and Anne the Princess Royal.show more
