The New Fab 4 Were Spotted at the Coronation—But Not Together

Recently, we wondered whether Prince Harry, 38, and Meghan Markle, 41, were being replaced in the Fab Four by Zara, 41, and Mike Tindall, 44, after body language expert Darren Stanton postulated that the Tindalls were filling the Sussex void (since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex now live in the States).

Well, at the coronation of King Charles III yesterday, we spotted the Tindalls, as well as Prince William, 40, and Kate Middleton, 41...but not together. In a series of photos from the event, we could see that the Tindalls were seated a few rows behind the Prince and Princess of Wales, as shown below.

Recently, this grouping of four has appeared to become quite close, and it first became apparent at the Easter Sunday church service back in April.

Stanton, on behalf of Betfair Casino, told PureWow, “Mike and Zara are definitely firm favorites with the public. They come across extremely natural and confident within marriage.”

And with regards to their relationship with Prince William and Princess Catherine, Stanton said, “I would probably say that Mike and Zara have taken over Harry and Meghan’s roles in the Fab Four, alongside William and Kate.”

However, when the Tindalls arrived to the coronation yesterday, we didn't even see them chatting with the Wales family. Rather, they were seen walking in with Zara's older brother, Peter Phillips. Granted, this likely just has to do with the order in which the family was seated at the event (and because Prince William is now first in the line of succession to the throne, he obviously sat at the front).

We'll be keeping an eye out for any new glimpses of these four in the future.
