Zara Phillips' understated jewellery
Jan 10, 2013, 12:02 GMT
Zara Phillips doesn't like to go over-the-top with her jewellery.
The 31-year-old royal - Queen Elizabeth's eldest granddaughter - says she doesn't wear many accessories because they would get in the way of her work.
Speaking at the Magic Millions racing carnival in Australia where she was wearing lots of jewellery from John Calleija and RM Williams, the keen horsewoman - who won a silver medal for Team GB in the three-day eventing competition at London 2012 - said: 'I'm not even sure who I'm wearing today. I've never worn so much bling before. Because I'm wearing gloves when I'm riding, I only wear my engagement and wedding ring. I only do it when I'm going out.'
And Zara - who is married to rugby ace Mike Tindall - won't be wearing too much jewellery in the near future as she has just agreed to help with the training of her husband's racehorse.
Zara will share training duties of Monbeg Dude, the steeplechaser part-owned by Mike which managed to win Saturday's (05.01.13.) Welsh National despite five notable jumping errors.
The mistakes were very obvious but the team are hoping queen horsewoman Zara may make a difference.
