Mike Tindall Reveals Daughter Mia Shares This Talent With Cousin Prince George

Mike Tindall has revealed eldest daughter Mia is following in his footsteps with her sporting talents – and it’s
something she shares in common with her cousin, 
Prince George.

Speaking on the latest
episode of his podcast, 
The Good, The Bad &
The Rugby
 this week, the
former England star, 43, spoke about eight-year-old Mia playing rugby for her
local team.

Mike said: “It’s
always hard to get Mia to go, she’s like ‘I don’t like it and then you get
there, and she’s off. Mia scored a couple… it was an eight-all thriller
in the first game and then a nine-all thriller in the second”.

Speaking about his
daughter’s involvement in tag rugby, Mike later added: “It’s funny how
much she’s changed over the last, sort of, this year, since they’ve been back,
figuring out how to avoid people because before they’d just all be really
bunched in. Now they’re getting more, where they run across but then they’re
all stepping back, and people are just falling around.”

Mike, who married Princess Anne‘s daughter Zara in 2011, played outside centre for Bath and Gloucester and won 75
caps for England between 2000 and 2011. He was also a member of the English
squad which won the 2003 World Cup.

It comes after the Duke
and 
Duchess of Cambridge took their eldest son, Prince George,
eight, to his 
first rugby match last Saturday, as they watched England
vs Wales at Twickenham Stadium in the Six Nations.

As the royals met
representatives from the Rugby Football Union before the match, Kate asked
George to tell the group about how he had started playing rugby at his school. She
said: “He has all the kit”.

George spoke about how he
has just started learning how to tackle, before turning to his
mother: “But I haven’t tackled you yet!” Kate replied,
laughing: “Yes, you have!”

Both the Cambridges and
the Tindalls are renowned for their love of sport, with Zara winning a silver
medal as part of Team GB’s eventing squad at the London 2012 Olympics.

Back in September 2020,
Mike spoke about 
Mia playing rugby for the
first time
 on the podcast,
revealing at the time: “She enjoyed it actually and she’s going to do
football for the first time this weekend as well. She’s a chip off the old
block. She just likes to truck it up, but we’ll work on that.”

Mike and Zara are also
parents to three-year-old 
Lena and their son, Lucas, who turns one this month.
