Hmm, I was looking into horseback riding holidays in Europe and look what I found:

Mark Phillips is teaching a clinic in Scotland.

Kinda pricey and I'm not planning on riding any competitions but I thought it was fun to look at.

Mark coaches the American team and in an interview Zara said she doesnt see him that often.

As for Anne seeing Mark and getting on well, they are often seen laughing and talking at horse trials and i've read in many articles that princess anne can see him driving from her house so they must bump into each other then also.

I wonder how close he is to his children. Didn't he live in Australia for a while?

I don't remember ever hearing that he lived here but I have heard regularly that he is very close to his children and the very fact that he lives on the Gatcombe estate shows that he also has a positive relationship with Anne.

When you look at it, with the exception of Charles and Diana, the rest of the royal divorcees seem to have been very civilised about it.

I'd certainly say that Anne and Mark were the most civilised of the royal divorcees.

He did a lot of business there, with regards horsey leasons and stuff and may have gone on long trips but i dont believe he ever lived there.

As with children, on of the agreements with there divorce that the children could see as much as their parents as they wanted at any time (within reason).

Haven't heard about Captain Mark Phillips for years. It's good that he gets along with his ex-wife.

This is another royal marriage that if the press hadn't got involved I think could have made it through its rough patches and lasted.

If the press hadn't let it be known that they had Anne's love letters from or two Tim Laurence then she and Mark would have continued with their lives - through the affairs they both had - and now be content together but the press and the public believe that they have a right to know the 'dirt' of people's private lives and thus the marriage ended officially. The same thing happend, I believe with Sarah and Andrew - a couple who probably didn't really want to separate but had to because the press got hold of some 'dirt' and made it public knowledge and thus forced them apart - Diana's was different as she spilt the 'dirt' herself and thus made any chance of a reconciliation with her husband impossible.

Quick question, some posts in this thread have given me the impression that Mark is aware that he has 2 illegitimate children but that he essentially tries to ignore them and has no part in their life? Is this true; or does he spend time with them?

I know of the one illegitimate child in NZ but hadn't realised he had another one somewhere. He has no contact with Felicity - but she was the result of a one-night stand and not from some long-term relationship with the mother (not condoning the actions of a one-night stand but understand that there was nothing more between them than a roll in the hay that resulted in a child that he wanted aborted.) He has supported her once it was proven that he was the father - and I don't blame him for wanting proof considering that is was only one night. I mean if the mother would go to bed with him the day they met why couldn't she do the same with other men?

Could you please provide some information on the second illegitimate child?

I know he has three legitimate children - Peter and Zara with Anne and Stephanie from his second marriage.

I think the confusion might be that Felicity is often referred to as Bunny....so perhaps some don't realize that she is one in the same and not two separate people?

Fidelity is obviously not one of his strong points, but there is something about him that attracts the ladies and they don't seem to mind that they are having an affair with a married man.

Something that is always revolting, IMO.
