There was cause for
double celebration at Mike and Zara Tindall’s household at the weekend,
and it sounds like the family made the most of it.

admitted: “I was having a lovely Father’s Day with the family so I
saw the results, I haven’t managed to go back through it all.”
Earlier in the podcast, the
star also shared that he would have liked to have celebrated with their
interviewees, Leicester’s Freddie Burns and Richard Wigglesworth, but joked
that family commitments meant that he was unable to.

While Mike didn’t share how
the family celebrated his daughter’s birthday or Father’s Day, it was clearly a
chance for the Tindalls to enjoy some special time together, perhaps at their
home on the Gatcombe Park Estate.
