While you might think one of the Middletons might be up to it, Kate and Pippa are not the Olympian athletes of the family (and Kate probably has other things on her mind, like making babies!).

In fact, it's Queen Elizabeth II's granddaughter Zara Phillips (who married rugby player Mike Tindall last summer) who's been selected as part of England's Olympic equestrian team!

The royal granddaughter and star equestrian will be one of five members of the UK's eventing team, according to the statement made by the British Equestrian Foundation. Zara was, in fact, slated to compete in 2008's Beijing Summer Olympics, but missed out when her horse Toytown became injured just before competition. She has since (tearfully) retired that horse, and will be riding a horse named High Kingdom at this summer's Games.

Let's see if this royal girl can kick as much ass as the rest of 'em!
