MIKE Tindall has opened up on the secret to his and Zara’s marriage ahead of their 10th wedding anniversary.

The ex-England rugby player told the Telegraph: “A lot can change over 10 years.

The former England rugby player, 42, put their successful partnership down to the fact that equestrian Zara, 39, is his best friend. Mike said that they can “laugh at each other and have a good time”, sweetly adding that it has been an “amazing” decade.

Mike and Zara, who recently welcomed their third child, celebrate their wedding anniversary next month.

The couple – who are parents to Mia, Lena and newborn son Lucas – tied the knot at Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh on July 20 2011.

Mike revealed he and Zara plan to go away to celebrate the special date.

He said: “Maybe Cornwall if we can’t go abroad.”

Princess Anne’s son-in-law also opened up on the kindness he has been shown by the Royal Family and praised the Queen for being an “amazing woman”.

He said: “I can only say how kind they’ve been to me, and how welcoming they’ve been to me since joining the family.

“And how they’ve made my family welcome.

“I’ve always felt part of it and I think that’s down to what an amazing woman the Queen is.

“They’re a fantastic family.

“How many families say that they will get together as a whole family six to eight times a year?

“It just doesn’t happen for me.

“I would like it to happen more, and this is where I have to perhaps learn a bit more from the wife, but it’s very rare.

“They’re very close and it’s great to see.”
