New mum Zara Phillips was full of smiles as she took to the Cheltenham racecourse for time out as a busy parent.

The 32-year-old styled a quirky hat with large feathers and covered up in black tights and a cream coat.

A change from the jam-packed baby-changing bag, Zara held a black clutch as she was snapped laughing and joking with friends in the Cheltenham stands.

The day marked one of Zara’s first outings without her baby daughter Mia who was born on January 17 of this year.

Zara and her husband former rugby star Mike Tindall welcomed their first child in Gloucestershire. Mia is the Queen’s fourth great-grandchild.

Tindall soon revealed the news on Twitter, writing; "For everyone who asked what our daughter's name is, it's Mia Grace Tindall."

Equestrian Zara was a silver medal-winning champion at the 2012 Olympics and recently said she had wanted to start a family for a while but was waiting for the right time in her training schedule.

Another familiar face at the first day of Cheltenham included model Katie Price and her husband Kieran Hayler.

The couple laughed and joked with friends as they drank wine and studied the programme for the day in their private box.

A deeply-tanned Katie wore a large fur gilet over a floral-sleeved dress.
