Royal Olympians

Queen Elizabeth's granddaughter Zara Phillips is part of the British equestrian team participating in the London Olympics this year. She is far from the first member of European royalty to compete in the games, though. Spain's royal family is especially known for sailing events. Prince Albert II of Monaco was part of his country's bobsled team five times -and then he married an Olympic athlete from South Africa! But there were other Olympians in his family, as in other royal families of Europe. Meet them in a gallery at The Daily Beast. Pictured here is Great Britain's Princess Anne, who competed in the 1976 Summer Games. Link
