The family's arriving. And not just any family.

Zara Phillips, granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II, has a few royal fans in the stands for her Olympic equestrian debut.

The Duke of Edinburgh, the queen's husband, as well as Phillip's mother, Princess Anne, are in the VIP seats at Greenwhich Park for the eventing dressage competition.
