He said: “Princess Anne’s horse brooch is one of her most longstanding pieces of jewellery – the Princess Royal has regularly worn the accessory to races since the 1980s.

“Secondly, there’s the symbolism associated with the image of a horse – a universal symbol of freedom without restraint, this is perfectly in keeping with Princess Anne’s character.”

The Princess Royal instilled her love of equestrian sport into her daughter, as both women have a proud history of competing in horse racing events.

Anne won the individual title at the European Eventing Championship with her home-bred horse Doublet at aged 21 and was voted the BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 1971.

Zara competed at the London 2012 Olympic Games and won a silver medal with the Equestrian Team.
