The Queen’s Granddaughter Zara Tindall Is Celebrating a *Major* Milestone—Here’s What We Know

zara tindall birthday

Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter, Zara Tindall, is reaching a major milestone this weekend: the big 4-0. So, how will the royal spend her 40th birthday on May 15?

Unfortunately, Tindall’s options are pretty limited due to social distancing. (Although restrictions in the U.K. are slowly lifting, they aren’t nonexistent.)

For this reason, the festivities will likely take place at the royal residence she shares with her husband, Mike: Gatcombe Park. The private 700-acre estate is situated in the heart of the Cotswolds, which is located outside of Gloucester.

Attendees will probably include Tindall’s three children: Mia (7), Lena (2) and Lucas (1 month). We wouldn’t be surprised if her parents, Princess Anne and Mark Phillips, participated in some of the celebrations, along with her in-laws, Linda and Philip Tindall. Who knows, maybe Queen Elizabeth will make a day trip for the occasion.

We don’t know any details about the itinerary, but Mike previously opened up about a recent “family weekend,” which consisted of equestrian activities followed by parenting duties. “A great Saturday, because Zara’s horses were running so she went off to watch them, took the girls with her, and I had the wee man, and literally you feed him, he goes to sleep, I went to the gym, he wakes up, I feed him,” he said on his podcast, The Good, The Bad and The Rugby. “I watched rugby whilst I was feeding him, he went back to sleep. It was the best day.”

One thing’s for sure: We’ll be refreshing the royal family’s official Instagram page on an hourly basis, so we can be the first to know if they share any new portraits.
