If she actually said "Don't you know who I am?" then I would have said no. Unless you're a royal fan or a fan of dressage you would have no clue who Zara was and from the picture she's wearing no kind of badge or entry pass to let her in to a restricted area.

This happened to her before somewhere but she hasn't learnt that like everyone else she needs to be wearing the appropriate identification for automatic entry.
Not everyone in the country would recognise her mother let alone her. Mike is probably more recogisable to many due to being involved in a higher profile sport but who his wife is woudn't be known to everyone either.

Even the members of the royal family had to wear ID badges during the Olympics, so I would think that Zara would have had one as well for this event if she wanted unlimited access to the area.

Yes, they all wore ID placards with their names on with some excellent mug shots!

Most people know who Zara is, but it's still not appropriate to not wear ID badges. Even at Royal Ascot her family all wear badges for the Royal Enclosure just like everyone else.

She should have one, whether given or purchased. Similar to the one Chanelle McCoy has on her handbag in the DM article. It would have been simple to show it to the guard, who would have let her through. Either Zara "expected" not to need one, or forgot it.

I remember Prince Andrew being nearly turned away at Royal Ascot because he wasn't recognized. I remember the story saying that he said, "But I am Prince Andrew!" This was a long time ago, and I recall that the story went on to say that the royal family didn't have to wear badges to enter the Royal Enclosure. Don't know if it's still that way, but I definitely remember it happening then (20-30 years ago, possible pre-Sarah).

Many fans of dressage wouldn't know who she is either as she doesn't compete in dressage but in three-day eventing.

Dressage, Show-jumping and three day eventing are separate events and rarely even compete at the same time or place - Olympics excepted.

Eventing includes dressage, show-jumping and cross-country.

^^^Funny expression; could that have been her reaction when the security guard didn't recognize her? She looks like the internet meme of Grumpy Cat!

I surely wouldn't want anyone to look at me like that! It reminds me of Longfellow's poem about the little girl with the curl..."when she was good, she was very good indeed. But, when she was bad, she was horrid." :)

One thing I have learnt with the press is not to assume that the order in which photos are presented is not necessarily the way things actually happened.

I'm not assuming anything with my observation about the photo, just making a harmless joke about her expression given the incident that occurred with the guard. I now have moved the emoticon after the first sentence for clarification that I was being facetious. I know full well there could be any one of a dozen reasons for that expression.

Indeed. More video of footage of her newlywed husband in some bar with some "friend" might be about to surface.

Better luck next time! A dapper Mike Tindall left disappointed after 12,000 racehorse Zara said he was 'an idiot' to buy fails to finish:

Nice to see Zara & Mike at the races but why Mike have to wear his suits so tight? I wouldn't be able to breath in it.
