Inside the very glamorous life of Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips half-sister Stephanie

Her siblings are known around the world as the Queen‘s eldest grandchildren. 

But Zara Tindall and Peter Philip’s younger half-sister Stephanie has her own share of luxury, sharing photos of herself on exotic trips to glamorous destinations online.

The 23-year-old event rider is the daughter of Captain Mark Phillips and his Hawaiian-born second wife Sandy Pflueger, who was part of the US dressage team at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics. 

Like her parents and older sibling Zara, Stephanie is a keen equestrian – often sharing pictures of her beloved horses on Instagram. 

However, her career as an eventing pro has not quite matched up to that of Olympic silver medallist Zara, her most recent success being placing fifth at Pontispool in May 2019.

Stephanie, who is daying agricultural graduate William Hosier, is also a keen traveller, posting snaps from travels across the world including trips to Hawaii, Austalia, New Zealand, Croatia and Slovenia.

The Worcester-based eventing pro seems particularly close to Peter, describing him in an Instagram post as ‘the best big brother out there’.

She’s also paid tribute to her niece Isla, now nine, sharing sweet snaps of her at Pepper Pig world as a toddler.

While keeping a relatively low profile, the equestrian has been pictured at some royal events, serving a flower girl at both Zara’s 2011 wedding to Mike Tindall and Peter’s 2008 wedding to Autumn Kelly.

Before lockdown, she was also regularly seen with her siblings at eventing competitions, including in one sweet snap where she gave her brother-in-law Mike Tindall a piggyback. 

In another she’s seen hugging Zara, the picture of sisterly love despite the 17-year age gap.

Captain Mark, 72, was married to the Queen’s only daughter Princess Anne, 70,  from 1973 to 1992, and in 1997 tied the knot with Stephanie’s mother Sandy Pflueger, an Hawaiian horse rider, although the pair separated in 2012.

Mark, who is an Olympic gold-medal winning horseman , also has a daughter with daughter, Felicity, as a result of an extramarital affair with New Zealand art teacher Heather Tonkin – who was born while he was still married to the Princess Royal.

Since leaving the military Mark Phillips, pictured competing at the Badminton Horse Trials in 1976, has spent his life in the world of equestrianism

In 1972, at the age of 23, Captain Phillips was a member of the British three-day event team that won the gold medal at the Munich Olympics. It was at the Games that he met Princess Anne.

The couple got engaged the following year.

As well as Olympics success, Captain Phillips won the Badminton Horse Trials in 1971 and 1972 riding Great Ovation, in 1974 on Colombus, and in 1981 on Lincoln.

After he retired from the Army, he continued to style himself Captain Mark Phillips – which was allowed because junior cavalry officers whose civilian work involves equestrianism may continue to use their rank.
