Zara also famously competed in the 2012 London games and won silver on the GB Equestrian team. She takes after her mother Princess Anne, who made history being the first royal to compete in the Olympics in 1976, in the same event.

Rugby is a special sport for Mike, as he played for England’s rugby teams which won the world cup in 2003. 

Prince William and Kate took to Twitter to share a heartfelt message which said, ‘Wishing @ParalympicsGB and all the athletes from around the world the best of luck in this year's #Paralympics. We can’t wait to see the talent and skill displayed over the next two weeks #ImpossibleToIgnore
