Princess Beatrice helped set a new record at the London Marathon yesterday, as she stepped out in a lime green tutu and matching fluorescent leg warmers.

Running the 26-mile course tied to 30 friends by bungee cord, the Princess formed part of the largest number of runners to finish the marathon tied together.
