The popular equestrian who just gave birth to Lucas, her third child, earlier this year in March, has a special connection to Australia and is reportedly keen to live there. Princess Anne’s daughter actually met her husband, Mike Tindall, in Australia back in 2003 and the couple has shared several vacations there with their children.
Zara’s role as the inaugural Magic Millions Racing Women Ambassador has also been a reason to visit Australia regularly since her appointment in 2012.
In an interview with the local Women’s Weekly in 2019, the couple explained why they loved spending time Down Under.
“Early January is bleak over here so it’s nice to go and have a bit of sun,” said Mr Tindall.
“I love the lifestyle of Australia and the ability to get up early, go on the beach – especially for the kids, taking them in the ocean is brilliant.
“I just think the people over in Australia are so laid back and they have good banter.
“No one’s worried about talking to each other.
“It’s not a rushed lifestyle.
“I think it’s a great place and we enjoy it so much.”

“If she’s anywhere near a pool she’d be in there all day.
“And that came from Australia when we went for six weeks when she was three and stayed at a place that had a pool. It was all she wanted to do.”
Asked by the reporter whether she ever thought about moving to Australia, the Princess Royal’s daughter answered: “Probably not while I’m still competing.”
“It would be a little bit hard commuting.”
“But after that … yes, I think if an opportunity came up we’d definitely think about it.”
Mrs Tindall, 40, has not retired yet and competed in the Nations Cup team at the CHIO Aachen World Equestrian Festival in Germany in mid-September as reported by Horse and Hound.
The British team achieved third place as Zara was partnering with Gleadhill House Stud Ltd’s 12-year-old chestnut Class Affair.
