Zara Phillips Shows Off Baby Bump In Black Gown At British Olympic Ball

She's due in the new year, but Zara Phillips obviously isn't ready to put her feet up just yet - as she was spotted looking ultra-glamorous at the British Olympic Ball at The Dorchester Hotel in a sweeping black gown.

Prince George's godmother added some extra oomph to the look with a gorgeous backcombed chignon and a rather low-cut neckline.

Her burgeoning bump could be seen under the fabric, and the royal, who is married to rugby star Mike Tindall, accessorised with a silver watch and a black Mulberry clutch.

Friendly Zara even managed to stop and sign autographs for fans who had gathered outside.

She was seen rubbing shoulder with other Olympic stars at the event, including Jessica Ennis-Hill and Victoria Pendleton.

In a recent interview Australian Women's Weekly magazine, Zara said the pregnancy had come as a it of a shock, and that she had tried horse riding but it has proved "uncomfortable".

However, she insisted she'd be straight back in the saddle after giving birth, and even hopes to compete in the World Eventing Championships next August. Go, Zara!
