38 sec read

The Queen’s granddaughter Zara Phillips has been left “shaken” after thieves broke into her car and stole her handbag last week. The theft occurred on Thursday afternoon in West London.

Zara’s bag contained jewelry, cash, and her passport. Thankfully the purse was abandoned with the passport inside near the scene of the crime, but the jewelry and cash have not been recovered. Depending on the handbag, it might have been the most expensive part!

Zara was shaken and was frantically searching for her handbag. Police told her later that it was an opportunistic crime – but there is always a moment of fear that she has been targeted,” a source said.

Zara’s Range Rover was damaged in the incident, and her riding gear was also found strewn across the road near her vehicle.

The crime comes just one month after Zara’s cousin, Princess Beatrice, was also the victim of a car crime. Her £17,000 BMW was stolen in a nearby area of London. Those British royals are just having no luck!
