The third carriage had Prince Edward and Sophie and William and Kate. Autumn and Peter rode in the last carriage with Princess Diana's sister, Lady Jane Fellowes and her husband.

A moment of silence was held before the race in memory and honor of those killed and injured in the Manchester Arena and London attacks, as well as the Grenfell Tower fire. The racecourse donated "£100,000 to the British Red Cross UK Solidarity and London Fire Relief Funds and local charities" for all those affected, according to The Telegraph.

Zara Tindall at Land Rover Launch

On September 6, 2012, Zara and Mike Tindall attended the Land Rover launch of the all new Range Rover at the Royal Ballet School in London. For this occasion, Zara wore a navy, short-sleeved Bastyan dress with embellishments around the neck which gave the illusion of a necklace. She was wearing a pair of black Christian Louboutin peep-toed heels, as well. The Queen's eldest granddaughter also wore a pair of simple diamond stud earrings and carried a Anya Hindmarch clutch.

The Range Rover that had it debut was the fourth generation of the iconic line. This was marketed as the first lightweight aluminum SUV; it was also the lightest SUV in its class. The car was designed and engineered at the Land Rover development center in the United Kingdom. A hybrid version was released later. Zara and Mike posed by a silver version of the new vehicle, as well.

It was no surprise that Zara and Mike attended the event. In 2006, Zara was announced as the new face of Land Rover. She regularly attends events for the company, and they sponsor and help fund her stables. 

At the time of the event, Zara and Mike had just been married for little over a year. Zara's first pregnancy would be announced close to a year later.

In August 2013, Zara attended Ladies Day at the Glorious Goodwood event at the Goodwood racecourse. She wore a yellow Paul & Joe dress for the occasion with a black fascinator and nude Tony Bianco pumps. She also carried a large black leather Mulberry clutch. 

She clearly enjoyed her time with friends at the event, with many images of them patting her four month baby bump.

Ladies Day is an event that Zara is seen attending often. As an equestrian, she shares her love of horses with her mother, Princess Anne and grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II. 

Ladies Day at Glorious Goodwood occurs annually and is one of the most exclusive races of each year. It takes place in Goodwood, Chichester, United Kingdom.

During this time, Zara was expecting her first child, Mia. Her pregnancy was announced only a month before. Mia Grace was born on January 17, 2014, at the Gloucestershire Royal Hospital. 

This was Zara's first appearance after the announcement of her pregnancy.
