Zara Tindall’s daughter Mia kept everyone in high spirits during a family day out on Saturday as she pulled some cheeky and adorable faces while playing with her cousins.
The energetic four-year-old showed off her confidence and sass, striking some poses and pouting as she joked around with Princess Anne’s granddaughters Savannah and Isla.
While her mother tended to newborn Lena, who was born in June, Mia used the grassy field as her playground, spending quality time with other members of her family.
Providing the laughs for the extended royal family at the Whatley Manor Horse Trials in Gloucestershire, the adorable little girl was the centre of attention.
She may be small but the Queen’s great-granddaughter is ready for anything, even seen trying to hold onto a pet dog’s lead, her face showing sheer determination.
However, it hasn’t been all smiles for the Tindall family of late, with Zara and Mike speaking openly about their two miscarriages before falling pregnant with little Lena.
Zara, 37, spoke for the first time on TV about their losses recently, telling BBC Breakfast: “I think that’s the hardest thing in our situation, is that everyone knew.”
She added: “And very much when things like that happen, normally it’s just your family and friends, but unfortunately everyone knew about it. Actually I had so many letters saying ‘I’m so sorry, we’ve been through the same thing’, which was incredible – and thank you to all those people.
“But it just showed how often it does happen and I have a very supportive family, Mike’s incredible.”
That prompted Zara to acknowledge how difficult a miscarriage is on men too, as they’ve suffered just as much of a loss as their partner.
“It’s very different for us [women] because we’re carrying the child, but for guys I guess it’s kind of that helpless feeling, which must be incredibly high and horrible for them. At the end of the day they’ve still lost a child too,” she added.
She gave the moving interview to celebrate the fact she’s riding horses again, three months after the birth of her second child Lena.
