What a contrast! Newlyweds Zara and Mike back in old jeans as they join Autumn, Peter and baby Savannah at Gatcombe


What a difference a week makes: Battered bootcut jeans with Timberland's and trainers - and is that a hole, Mike? The two join Autumn and Peter Phillips for the first day of the Gatcombe Park Festival of Eventing

It's been just under a week since they were sipping champagne in their wedding finery as they celebrated their marriage at Edinburgh's Holyrood House.

Today though, wedding gowns and morning suits were swopped for some rather more practical bootcut jeans and navy polo shirts as Zara and Mike attended the first day of Gatcombe Horse Trials.

Relaxed: If Zara was at all nervous about her upcoming competition on the final day of eventing this Sunday, she showed no sign as she chatted with family and friends

Joining Zara's brother Peter and sister-in-law Autumn with their baby Savannah, the group gathered to watch the opening day of eventing at the Gloucestershire festival.

Mike took time out from training with the England rugby team to attend the event with his new wife, who is to compete at Gatcombe herself on the final day of eventing on Sunday 7 August.

Happy couple: Mike and Zara are together again for the first day of the Festival of British Eventing after their work schedules meant they spent the first few days of married life apart

The Queen's granddaughter will ride for the last time on her 'horse of a lifetime' Toytown, as the gelding, who has suffered a series of injuries, is to be retired after Zara's event.

Eighteen-year-old 'Noddy' will be paraded in the main arena at 1.45pm on Sunday, so that his fans can pay tribute to the legendary white-flecked chestnut horse.

Scrub up well: Mike looked dapper in his suit when he married the Queen's granddaughter, Zara, in Edinburgh, while Zara looked beautiful in her magnificent Stewart Parvin gown

Doting: Autumn and Peter Phillips took turns bouncing their daughter Savannah on their knees as they watched the action at Gatcombe Park this afternoon

Any nerves Zara is feeling about her upcoming competition went unnoticed today though, as the former World Champion looked relaxed in the sunshine with her family.

Autumn and Peter, who will almost certainly attend Gatcombe on Sunday too, played the doting parents role as they took turns to bounce a delighted baby daughter Savannah on their knee.

The two looked every inch the loving family as they played with the little girl, smiling broadly as they passed her between one another.

It recalled the scene outside Holyrood House last weekend, when Autumn swung her giggling daughter into the air, planting a kiss on her cheek.

Relaxed: The three Phillips looked every inch the family unit as they attended the event today
