A new job for Peter Phillips

Peter Phillips, the son of the Princess Royal, is to take over the running of the Gatcombe Park Horse trials. The event had been run by his father, Captain Mark Phillips, but Mark -- who is Princess Anne's first husband -- will be at the Beijing Olympics as coach for the U.S. equestrian team.
"This year seemed a perfect opportunity to become involved becuase of father being away at the Oympics," the 30-year-old Peter told a reporter.
