Zara, who at birth was sixth in line to the throne, was pictured showing off her cropped hair cut which was styled loosely around her face.
Her blonde bob is straight out of the current fashion magazines and is right on-trend.

As she arrived, she was seen wearing a pair of black classic shape, Rayban sunglasses, to protect her eyes from the wintery sun and glares of flashing cameras.
She opted for a paintbrush-splattered-like black dress and no jewellery.
Zara chose to have a classic-day-time make-up look which consisted of bronzed cheeks, highlighted cheekbones and glossed lips.
Although Zara wore sunglasses throughout the journey into Buckingham Palace, it is assumed that she would have opted for her trademark brown eye-shadow and mascaraed eyelashes.
