Zara Phillips looks elegant in navy gown as she’s supported by husband Mike Tindall at red carpet event weeks after announcing her miscarriage
Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall made their return to the red carpet on Tuesday, as they continued their public appearances following the miscarriage of their second child.
The Queen’s granddaughter, 35, led the stylish arrivals at the Magic Millions launch party in Queensland’s Surfers Paradise, Australia.
The presence of the married couple, who are already parents to two-year-old daughter Mia, follows their attendance at Magic Millions Polo on Sunday, where Zara returned to her beloved sport.
Zara, who serves as an ambassador for racehorse auction house Magic Millions, donned a timeless navy frock, that flattered her frame with capped sleeves.
With jewelled detailing to add a feminine touch, the dress was accessorised with delicate drop earrings and black pointed-toe heels.
Sweeping her blonde locks into an elegant style at the nape of the neck, Zara complemented the overall image with a flawless complexion, defined brows and a glossy nude lip.
On her arm for support, former English rugby player Mike cut a suave figure in a patterned blue suit jacket, white button-up shirt and khaki trousers.
The couple happily posed for photos beside one another as they joined a host of high-profile guests.
A spokesperson for Zara and Mike announced last month that they had lost their unborn second child.
It is believed Zara was four months into her pregnancy.
‘Very sadly, Zara and Mike Tindall have lost their baby. At this difficult time, we ask that everyone respects their privacy,’ the statement simply said.
Zara is 16th in line to the throne and first met Mike 13 years ago, in Sydney, Australia during the 2003 Rugby World Cup.
She has previously revealed that it was Prince Harry who introduced the English rugby player to his cousin in Manly Wharf bar.
The duo – who have been married since July 2011 – sweetly held hands as they attended the Pacific Fair Magic Millions Polo in Queensland, this weekend.
They had been absent for the official royal engagements over Christmas and it was therefore the first time they had been seen since their tragic family news.
Keen to swiftly return to her sport, the equestrian even came off her horse mid-way through the polo competition, before promptly getting back on and getting on with the game.
But her husband praised her steely determination, by explaining that afternoon: ‘That’s her will to win. She’s tough, she bounces’.
There to celebrate Magic Millions launch party on Tuesday, the guestlist also included model and television personality Jesinta Franklin (nee Campbell).
The 25-year-old highlighted her slimline figure in a floaty white silk frock, with a halter neckline.
A thin belt just under the bust accentuated her slender waist.
Jesinta accessorised with a pair of long gold earrings and her weighty engagement ring, from husband Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin.
Australian jockey Michelle Payne cut a sophisticated figure in a strapless lace frock.
The A-line design added a flirty touch, while a statement black clutch, pearl earrings and strappy heels worked with the classy look.
Sweeping her brunette locks into an up-do, the 31-year-old opted for an elegant makeup look of defined brows, lashings of mascara, a touch of bronzer on the apples of her cheeks and a glossy nude lip.
Zara was also seen posing for photos with Katie Page Harvey and Francesca Cumani.
Katie, a businesswoman and CEO of retail chain Harvey Norman, opted for a bold look in a metallic patterned frock.
The low neckline highlighted her delicate decolletage, while a pair of gold strappy heels tied in with the whole look.
Katie’s short blonde tresses were styled sleek and semi-straight.
Television presenter Francesca Cumani, showed off her slim figure in a neutral-hued form-fitting frock.
The sleeveless design drew attention to her lithe arms, while a hem of varying lengths added a subtle flair.
Nude strappy heels, a coordinating clutch and drop earrings kept with the colour palette.
Tying her brunette locks back off her face, a dewy complexion, defined brows and a matte nude lip finished off the look.
