Zara Phillips hops on a John Deere

Here’s something you don’t see every day – a bona fide member of the royal family sitting proudly astride a John Deere.

Ok so it’s not a tractor, but Zara Phillips hopped on a John Deere lawnmower at the Chelsea Flower Show to help the company celebrate 50 years of manufacturing lawn and turf equipment.

The company, already well established as a tractor manufacturer, entered the new lawn care market in 1963 in the US.
