Every royal has their hobby, and it seems Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter, Zara Tindall, is using one of hers to raise money to help fight the current coronavirus pandemic.
The 38-year-old royal, who also moonlights as an Olympic equestrian, has contributed her painting of her horse to the charity Equestrian Relief, which aims to use the power of equestrian sport to raise money and change lives for a good cause.
The organization is currently auctioning off prizes to raise money for the U.K.’s National Health Service and those on the frontlines fighting COVID-19. According to the website, Tindall created the painting of her horse, Toytown, as part of her Horse Drawn challenge. Toytown accompanied her in her win at the World Equestrian Games in 2006. The piece of artwork, which depicts the horse in shades of blue, green and white paint, already has bids over $4,500. Not to mention, it’s also signed by the royal herself.
Last week, the 38-year-old appeared on Good Morning Britain to discuss the initiative.
“Obviously, all of us are at home and those guys are out on the frontline, fighting this war,” Zara said of essential workers. “We want to try and do something to help them, to support them. 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.”
Using your talents for a good cause? That’s something we can totally get behind.
