When Zara – daughter of the Princess Royal – was born in 1981, she had no right to a title, being born down the female line as the offspring of a daughter of a sovereign.

Zara, a champion equestrian rider who won a team silver in the London 2012 Olympics, and former England rugby player Tindall have been together for 15 years and married in Edinburgh in July 2011.
