Queen's granddaughter and husband Mike Tindall left a little unimpressed when denied entry to the parade ring
Zara Phillips might be the Queen’s granddaughter- but that doesn’t mean she always gets the royal treatment.
Olympic Silver medallist, Zara Phillips was left a little unimpressed when an overzealous security guard refused her and husband Mike Tindall access to the parade ring at Cheltenham Festival yesterday.
Looking chic in a cream coat and purple hat with a pair of feathers by Jane Taylor Millinery, Miss Phillips, 31, was seen in an animated discussion with the guard, as she tried to access the enclosure, much to the apparent amusement of Tindall.
After playing the ‘Don’t you know who I am?’ card, the pair were finally let through and later seen laughing off the matter with friends.
Zara and her the former England rugby captain husband Mike, 34, recently sold their £1.2 million house in Cheltenham after deciding to move into her mother, Princess Anne’s Gatcombe Park estate, Glos.
The low-key couple met in a bar in Sydney during the 2003 Rugby World Cup, through Zara’s cousin Prince Harry, and tied the knot at Canongate Kirk, Edinburgh, in July 2011.
