Speaking today, the father of three revealed he had his hands full over the weekend as he took his children out for the day. In a hilarious anecdote on “The Good, The Bad & The Rugby” podcast, Mike revealed how he enjoyed the sunny weather which faced the UK over the weekend. In conversation with fellow hosts, Alex Payne and James Haskell, he revealed he initially thought the idea of kite flying had been a “great idea”.

He said today: “Tell you what I did do at the weekend because it was sunny and windy.

“I thought it’d be a great idea to take four children kite flying on Minchinhampton Common so I spent three hours untangling strings.

“It was the most stressful three hours of my life and I was just shouting at children as they were running around uncrossing strings.”

Mike and his wife Zara announced the birth of their third child, Lucas Philip Tindall last month.

Lucas was born at the pair’s home in Gatcombe Park on Wednesday, March 21 a statement later confirmed.

Indeed, a spokeswoman for the couple said: “Zara and Mike Tindall are happy to announce the birth of their third child, Lucas Philip Tindall.

“The baby was born at the couple’s home in Gatcombe Park on Sunday 21 March, weighing 8lbs 4oz.”

In less happy news, Philip and Zara were also a part of the 30-person attendees who attended Prince Philip’s funeral this month.

The funeral was forced to be scaled down due to Covid restrictions and had originally been planned to include 800 guests.

Following the funeral, the Queen made her first official appearance this week as she welcomed ambassadors from Latvia and the Ivory Coast.

Speaking from Windsor Castle, Her Majesty spoke via videolink to the two officials who spoke from Buckingham Palace.

Via video Ivita Burmistre, the ambassador from Latvia, presented the Letters of Recall of her predecessor and her own Letters of Credence to the Queen, as did Sara Affoue Amani, the Ivory Coast ambassador.

Although the Queen held some minor duties at Windsor last week, it is thought this is the first time the Monarch has been pictured since the passing of Philip.

Her Majesty also turned 95 last week where she thanked the public for their well-wishes.

She said: “I have, on the occasion of my 95th birthday today, received many messages of good wishes, which I very much appreciate.

“While as a family we are in a period of great sadness, it has been a comfort to us all to see and to hear the tributes paid to my husband, from those within the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth and around the world.

“My family and I would like to thank you all for the support and kindness shown to us in recent days.

“We have been deeply touched, and continue to be reminded that Philip had such an extraordinary impact on countless people throughout his life.”

Her Majesty will also celebrate the Trooping of the Colour – the sovereign’s official birthday – in June.

It will, however, be scaled back due to coronavirus restrictions.
