The granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II has been banned by a judge from driving for half a year after she was caught driving over the speed limit in a countryside.

AceShowbiz - Queen Elizabeth II's granddaughter Zara Tindall has been banned from driving for six months for speeding her Land Rover in the English countryside.

The equestrian star already had nine points on her license when she was caught driving 91 miles per hour near her home in 2018, and a court hearing took place on Wednesday, January 8, 2020 regarding the incident.

While the equestrian star, who won a silver medal at the 2012 London Olympics, did not attend the court hearing, her lawyer pleaded guilty for her and she was given four more points - exceeding 12 points for an automatic ban.

"Because Mrs. Tindall already has nine points on her license she was unable to accept a fixed penalty for this offence," prosecutor Farley Turner said.

Zara was fined $880 plus a victim surcharge of $200.

The Olympian was unable to attend the hearing as she was in Australia with her husband, rugby star Mike Tindall, where wild bushfires are ravaging the country.

It's not the first driving incident for the royal family - Zara's mother, Princess Anne, was pulled over for speeding at 90 miles per hour in her Bentley on the same road in March 2001.

Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, also voluntarily gave up his driver's license after he slammed his Land Rover into another car near the royal family's Sandringham in January last year.
