ZARA TINDALL and her husband Mike are popular thanks to their down-to-earth attitude. The retired rugby star and Olympic equestrian are often snapped looking cosy in public but how many children do they have together?
Zara Tindall, 38, is Princess Anne’s daughter and was raised without a royal title. The Queen’s level-headed granddaughter tied the knot with ex-rugby player Mike Tindall, 40, in 2011. The couple’s low-key royal wedding won them a place in royal fans’ hearts and they remain firm favourites with the British public to this day.
The Tindall clan was out in force at the weekend to watch mum Zara compete at Gatcombe Horse Trials.
Keen equestrian Zara is an Olympic silver medallist and hopes to represent Britain again in the 2020 Games.
Mike and Zara are not afraid of PDA and the loved-up pair were snapped sharing a smooch in a snatched moment away from the children.

The couple have two daughters together – Mia Grace Tindall, five, and Lena Elizabeth Tindall, one.
Zara was photographed treating Mia to an ice cream at the horse trials while it fell to Mike to care for the girls while their mum was on horseback.
The dad looked at ease as he carried Lena around on his shoulders and played with Mia.
Zara has previously opened up about two pregnancy losses she suffered before her daughter Lena was born.

In 2016, Mike and Zara announced they were expecting but tragically lost the baby a month later.
The royal suffered a second miscarriage but only shared the news of the loss in 2018 because it was “too raw” at the time.
In a candid interview with BBC Breakfast presenter Sally Nugent last year, Zara said: “I think that’s the hardest thing in our situation, is that everyone knew.
“And very much when things like that happen, normally it’s just your family and friends, but unfortunately everyone knew about it.”

The Queen’s granddaughter thanked the public for the support she received following the losses.
Zara said: “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 – and it’s hard for the guys too.
“It’s very different for us 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.”

Unlike their royal cousins, Zara and her brother Peter were raised outside the royal bubble.
Princess Anne and her first husband Mark Phillips turned down the Queen’s offer off royal titles for their children which is why Zara is not a Princess.
The royal has previously praised her mother’s decision to raise her as a private citizen.
In 2015 she told the Times: “I’m very lucky that both my parents decided to not use the title and we grew up and did all the things that gave us the opportunity to do.”
