I dont think that Zara is Pregnat. I just think she gained some weight. Look at Charlotte asiraghi from Monaco. Last summer, there were some pictures of her looking chubbier than usual and it started a whole bunch of rumors that she was pregnant which turned out to be rubbbish
By the way. I love Zaras outfit. Its nice to know that the younger royals can dress really casually and look good

I think the problem is that the fabric and cut of her "shirt" (and I use the term loosely) are unflattering. She hasn't gained weight and she's not pregnant, she just has bad taste in clothes.

Silly question: Do they pin their top hats down when they're riding?

LOL! I love your response.

Cool

Zara has definitely gained weight and I don't like the belt, it certainly doesn't do anything for her. I know many of you will disagree with me, but I feel Zara looks ill dressed and sloppy for such an event. The outfit looks as if it was thrown together at the last minute. I don't have any objections to this as something to wear at a super casual affair, but it's inappropriate on this occasion. Sorry, I guess I'm too old fashioned.

Oh no, Katrianna, you're not old fashioned.
She should have put on something smarter.
But actually it is not only that her clothes are inappropriate for such occassion but they aren't good for her figure either. She has become fat...and this top and belt.... just terrible.

You are not supposed to, the 'idea' is that you make your horse do all the dressage moves so smoothly and carefully, your hat wouldn't dare fall off! (seriously)

Zara Phillips forum

Is there something else we could talk about besides her clothing and equestrian? I would like to find out whether or not she enjoys riding and playing polo on bikes, or maybe what her favorite dinner might be? Maybe she likes Beefeater Gin, who knows?

For any fellow equestrian fans here on TRF and people who admire Zara - she will be participating in Great Britain's team in the upcoming World Equestrian Games in Aachen, Germany. The games starts next week, and here in Europe we can watch it on Eurosport (and some national channels), I don't know how it is in the rest of the world though.

Zara will be riding her best horse, Toytown. To see a list of the teams of all participating countries, you can go here.

The amount of time required to get to the standard she is, means a lot of hard work, so I would guess she loves riding or she wouldn't do it.

Wow, if she made it to the final group, then I'm impressed! Good for her!

Today the eventing's cross country took place - and it was a glorious day for England. Zara Phillips is now in the lead individually together with Toytown, and the English team is 2nd in the ream ranking, after Germany!

So after dressage & cross-country, this is the situation:

Individually:
1) Zara Phillips, England, Toytown 41,70 penalties
2) Bettina Hoy, Germany, Ringwood Cockatoo, 43,70
3) Frank Ostholt, Germany, Air Jordan, 46,90
4) Clayton Fredericks, Australia, Ben Along Time, 48,80
5) Heelan Tompkins, New Zeeland, Glengarrick, 49,80

Team standings:
1) Germany, 143 penalties
2) England, 175
3) USA, 190,10
4) Australia, 193,30
5) Sweden, 198,20

Tomorrow it's time for the show-jumping, and I'm gonna keep my thumbs for Zara and for the Swedish riders!

Thank you so very much for the news Sofia!!!!!! :) :)
I was a little disappointed by England's performance at first (they were in the 5th or 4th place for some time) and I didn't dare to look for Zara's results but there you go!!
Good luck to Zara and the English team!

Warren, you're quite the optimist, aren't you?

I think she's a lovely girl, but this outfit (and the belt) was very unbecoming. Shades of Britney Spears -- I always want to take her to Salvation Army and buy her something in the right size.
