Zara opted to keep her makeup minimal for the outing, sweeping dark eyeliner along her lids and a touch of blusher across her cheeks.

Meanwhile the mother-of-three swept her blonde locks into a ponytail for the occasion.

Since the arrival of her third child, Zara has been spotted on low-key family outings.

Last year, Zara described how riding for her country is what ‘dreams are made of’ and how she is lucky to have her horses with her in lockdown.

The silver Olympic medal-winning equestrian lives on her mother Princess Anne’s Gatcombe Park estate in Gloucestershire. 

The Queen’s eldest granddaughter, 40, is a regular attendee of Cheltenham’s events and went to the November meeting a few weeks ago.

The mother-of-three described it as an ‘honour’ to become a director at Cheltenham Racecourse.

Zara has owned, bred and pre-trained in the past, as well as of course winning her gold medal at the Eventing World Championships in Aachen in 2006 and silver at the London 2012 Olympics.

It was her mother, Princess Anne, who presented her with her medal at for the team eventing win.

In 2006, the British public voted for her as BBC Sports Personality of the Year and was awarded an MBE in 2007 for services to equestrianism.

 Last month, Zara and her husband Mike attended the carol concert hosted by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at Westminister Abbey.

The ‘Together at Christmas’ community carol service paid tribute to the work of individuals and organisations across the UK who have supported their communities through the COVID-19 pandemic.

There was a strong Royal turnout at the event, including the Countess of Wessex, Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, and Princess Eugenie.

The Royal family came as a couple and left their three children, Mia, seven, Lena, three, and eight-month-old Lucas at home.
