For the first time three siblings are on the showjumping squads going to the European Championships
All three of Peter Charles’ children, Sienna, 13, Scarlett, 15 and Harry, 17 (pictured, above) are on the teams heading to Millstreet, Ireland, on 26-31 July.
“We are beyond thrilled that Sienna with Chaitanya 2, Harry with Controe and Scarlett with Sacree Du Rouet have been selected,” Peter said.
“This is astonishing achievement to have all three on the squads and I could not be more proud of them.”
“To get three riders on horses going well on form hasn’t been easy, especially for Harry who’s done 10 GCSEs this summer,” Peter told H&H.
Joining Sienna (pictured, above) in the children’s squad is Ben Clark, 14, with Lanverdel, Oliver Fletcher, 13, on his father Graham’s Temple Rebus, Lily Freeman-Atwood, 14 from Shropshire on Banana D’Ive Z and Eleanor Hall-Mcateer, 14 with Dazzle II.

On the junior squad alongside Harry and Scarlett Charles are Faye Adams, 18, with Ciana 1, Leonie Aikenhead, 18, with Clane K and Emily Ward, 17, with Remi Cavalleri.
A member of the winning junior Nations Cup team in Belgium in June, Miss Ward works for showjumper Michael Whitaker.

Peter Charles said his children “are aiming for a medal each”.
