Zara Philips carries Olympic torch on horseback
London, May 24 (ANI): The Princess Royal's daughter, Zara Phillips, carried the Olympic torch on horseback across the Cheltenham racecourse on Wednesday, as huge crowds watched her light the Olympic cauldron.
The Queen's grand-daughter gave the Olympic torch relay the royal seal of approval as she carried the flame for 300 yards, while riding her horse Toytown, in front of thousands of screaming fans.
Phillips, who would be following in her Olympian mother Princess Anne's footsteps when she takes part at London 2012, was moved by her experience.
"It is unbelievable," the Telegraph quoted her as saying.
"Actually I am still shaking, it was an unbelievable experience. It was quite dodgy at the beginning, but we got there," she added.(ANI)
