2 Reviews
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.

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 Princes William and Harry, her sense of style and sometimes controversial love life, and her rise to the top of her chosen sport.

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.

This book includes Zara's contribution to the British Team that won the 2007 European Championship.
