The Walk to Church at Sandringham on Christmas Day ~ Zara Phillips Part One

Zara, Princess Anne’s daughter, sure has come a long way over the years. We’ve got so much great footage of her over the years that once again we had to split the posts into two. Let’s start way back in 1985…


Sorry that this picture isn’t any bigger. If you look closely, you can see little zara wearing a red, matching her aunt Diana. This shot is especially picturesque since there was snow on the ground that year!

Another look. That’s Princess Anne holding onto Zara’s hand:


How cute are William and Zara here!? We had similar ‘party tights’ to the ones that Zara is wearing. William is looking like he really looks up to her as his slightly older cousin:


Ok, so this first shot wasn’t taken on Christmas Day but we had to include it. It was taken two days before on December 23, 1990 at the church of St. Mary Magdelen, Sandringham after Princess Eugenie’s christening. This is the same church that holds the Christmas service.

The photograph below of the royal march to church was taken on the same day. We spy Zara behind Diana (in an often worn Moschino suit) and William.


What a festive cape-ish coat! Anne is looking good too in her camel coat and black chapeau.


Zara must have a but of a chuckle when she sees photographs of herself in this get up. Don’t we all have similar photos that are just funny now?


Two years later and Zara looks so much older here. And check out William in the second picture – he’s really growing up, too!


We love this shot of William, Harry and Zara. Zara has brought out yet another black hat for the occasion. She’s still not showing her fashion forward streak. Gotta love that Christmas-plaid coat on Anne in the second picture. They all look rather sombre.  Perhaps they were getting worried about the millenium…

Join us on Monday for Part Two!
