Father of three Mike Tindall had his hands full as he took his children to the Festival of British Eventing at Gatcombe Park today.
The former England rugby player, 43, who is married to the Queen’s granddaughter Zara Tindall, attended the prestigious event, held at the Princess Royal’s estate, along with his two daughters Mia, eight, and Lena, four, and his one-year-old son Lukas.
They were joined by a casually dressed Princess Anne, 71, who was seen chatting to her young grandson, pointing in one direction while he pointed in another.
Yesterday Mike and his happy kids watched 41-year-old British rider Zara compete on horseback on the first day of the annual event.

Yesterday, Mia, who is now 22nd in line to the British throne, joined her parents Mike and Zara on day one of the event.
The Tindalls’ eldest child stayed cool on a hot summer’s day enjoying an ice cream and was seen seemingly dancing as she walked the grounds.
Like her cousin Savannah Phillips, Mia is known for her mischievous streak and is also known to run around with her father and cousins at various horse competitions.
Her younger sister Lena was born in June 2018. Zara’s cousin, Prince Harry, is Lena’s godfather.
At the birth of her little brother in March 2021, Mike said that little Lena, then three years old, called the boy “my baby”! and then he tried to pick him up, leaving him and Zara to tell her, “No, Lena, it’s not your baby!”

Zara and Mika’s third child is Lucas Philip Tindall, who was born in March 2021. He was delivered on the bathroom floor of the family’s Gatcombe Park home because Zara didn’t have enough time to make it to the hospital.
In a podcast that revealed the baby’s birth, Mike said that Zara’s friend realized the urgency of the situation, her midwife was called and then “he ran to the gym, got a mat, off to the bathroom, towels down, clasp clasp.” !’
Lucas’ middle name, Philip, is a reference to both his great-grandfather, Prince Philip, and Mike Tindall’s own father, the banker Philip Tindall.
