IT was only an exhibition match but cousins Prince Harry and Zara Phillips gave no quarter in a game of wheelchair rugby tonight that became a battle royal.
With England rugby World Cup winner Jason Robinson on their team, they faced off against equally star-studded opposition featuring Zara’s husband Mike Tindall and Olympic gold medallists Dame Kelly Holmes and Denise Lewis.
Zara, 33, and Mike, 35, proved all is fair is love and war as they plotted to out-do each other on the court at the Copper Box arena in London’s Olympic Park in front of 7,000 screaming fans at the Invictus Games.
“There’s been a bit of hanging onto his chair and making him take me along with him,” said Zara, who felt her husband and cousin had an advantage.
“I think people with long arms go faster. He and Mike are good because they’ve got long arms.”
