Some interesting photos from two days ago of a side we rarely see. Zara and the Prince of Wales met in the Royal Box at Ascot...

I loved the series of photos surrounding that shot. You are right, we don't see enought of moments like these, but it seems that the newly relaxed, and dare one say . . . laid back, Charles is proving a dab hand at PDA's!

Didn't he came up with the name Zara for her? It's nice to see them so close. I love her hat at Ascot.

I doubt Princess Anne would let anyone else name her child for her. It's certainly an unusual name. I think she's the first Zara in the BRF, isn't she?

Prince Charles actually suggested the name Zara to his sister. It means....dawn something. For the life of me..>I can't find the actual reference.

^"Dawn of the day" I think. I think Zara derives from a Greek name that means this, and in turn the Greek word derives from a word from an African language.

On the topic of Zara's current events, I just want to say that I have fallen in love with Tiger Lily the horse. Though Tiger Lily's debut is at the expense of Toytown's injury. Toytown has been injured before I think. I wish Zara would not make Toytown jump. The poor horse does not have a choice and has to keep having her/his leg injured. After a horse reaches a certain age it's probably not a good idea to make him/her keep jumping, and Toytown is approaching 17.... I know horses can live well into their 30s and beyond, but still.

Bright as the dawn! Yeah, that's it!

Hey, I was wrong about Toytown. Toytown is 14. I misunderstood an article which said Toytown would be 17, which is past the typical age for Olympic horses, in 2012.

The only articles I can find, (including the earlier ones I and DoM posted) all report that Toytown is 15 at the moment, except the Mail and wiki.

Given the sloppy reporting we have seen lately, which you have pointed out, who knows?

Zara had entries both this last Saturday and Sunday all of which she withdrew. She has also withdrawn this coming weekend's entries.

Burghley direct web page (bdwp.co.uk)

She might still be on R&R in the South Seas.

The Chronicle of the Horse (the bible) says Toytown is 15.

That would be sooo cool! Zara and Mike are the best couple, and they would be great dancing partners (and funny too!)

I suppose she could get away with it as it is for charity (Children in Need). I believe they are friends with Matt Dawson so you never know

Horses for sale, Equestrian news - Horse & Hound has published a new collection of beautiful photos of Toytown and Zara and a fellow rider.

Scroll right down to the bottom of the opening page.

I see what you mean.

The recent Toytown set can be found by following the link to the Gallery.

But when I looked up their website from my Favourites just now the Toytown set was being used.

From a professional point of view times are tough for the couple - first Zara forced to miss the Olympics, now Mike being axed from the first England rugby quad by the new manager, Martin Johnston.
