It wasn't your everyday family outing.
On Monday as the Queen's granddaughter Zara Phillips competed in the difficult cross-country portion of Olympic equestrian event, her relatives Prince William, Kate, Prince Harry, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, and Camilla all applauded enthusiastically from the stands, as about 50,000 other spectators – including Phillips's mother, Princess Anne – viewed from along the 3.5-mile, 28-obstacle course.
Five minutes after setting off on her horse High Kingdom, Phillips, wearing No. 40, negotiated the Tower of London fence, eliciting tremendous applause – including from her cousins. Sitting between William and Camilla, Kate, who wore a pale blue Team GB badge on the right lapel of her navy blue jacket, also beamed a huge smile.
And there were more smiles to come.

Princess Beatrice has put her DIY makeover skills to the test as a special gift to mark her grandmother's 60 years on the throne.
Beatrice, 23, redecorated a cute playhouse that Queen Elizabeth was given as a little girl.
Now, as Britain celebrates the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, the beautiful renovation of the little Wendy house has been unveiled. The home, called Y Bwthyn Bach (the Small House), was a present from the Welsh people to the then Princess Elizabeth, in March 1932 when she was just 5 years old.

To the outside world, Queen Elizabeth sometimes appears as a poker-faced woman who seldom lets down her guard or offers up an opinion.
But when she's around her eight grandchildren (and two great-granddaughters), she "lights up," according to one of them.
Princess Eugenie, 21, says she loves telling the 86-year-old monarch about life at university. "We talk about my Newcastle life and how I've got so many essays and things and she still goes, 'Aha,' [and] laughs at what I say, which is lovely," Eugenie says during an ITV1 special, Elizabeth: Queen, Wife, Mother, airing in Britain on June 1.
