Her Majesty’s granddaughter, Zara Tindall, daughter of Princess Anne has in her own unique way joined the fight against the pandemic that is ravaging the world and most especially her own home.
In her own unique way, she has combined her own special love and ability to make way for those in the frontline against the virus by raising funds through art and her love for horses.
She recently contributed her painting, an artwork which is a painting of her horse Toytown as a part of the Horse Drawn challenge to the charity Equestrian Relief, which is auctioning off prizes to raise money for the U.K.’s National Health Service.
The artwork depicts the profile of the horse amid strokes of blues and greens and is signed by the royal and so far it’s biddings have risen to $4,500.
The whole aim of the fundraising is to make use of the popularity that the equestrian sport in the United Kingdom enjoys and has to raise funds for the NHS COVID-19 appeal. The entire fundraising will involve five teams of famous people with horse racing taking part in a series of activities and events like baking, painting, a mystery round called “Dark Horse,” where the contestants will have to reveal their ultimate secret party trick and many other activities.
In an interview with Good Morning Britain few weeks ago, Zara spoke to the people saying, “Obviously, all of us are at home and those guys are out on the frontline, fighting this war. We want to try and do something to help them, to support them.” She also added, “We’re all doing two challenges each and trying to use our competitive edge to try and raise some money and have a little competition against each other.”
Speaking about her Grandmother’s televised speech, she said, “What she said is complete, 100 per cent what the country needed. I hope that everyone listens, and we can try and get back to normal.”
As one who is also experiencing the downturn she’s also in her residence with her husband Mike Tindall and their two daughters 6-year-old Mia and Lena, who turns 2 in June. She says, “I think it’s really hard being locked up and not being allowed to do what you normally do. Getting fresh air into your lungs and being out and about is kind of part of our motor program about staying active, staying fit.”
She added, “We’re very lucky out in the country on the farm. But we’ve still got to look after the horses, so I can’t imagine how hard it is for people in the city — just trying to stay safe and not put pressure on our NHS.”
