Zara Tindall is a granddaughter of the Queen. She is an Olympian and a mother. What is her relationship with her mother Princess Anne?
Anne, Zara and the Queen are all similar in a number of ways.
However, Zara differs in a key way. Judi explained: “There has always been a very un-fussy closeness between the Queen and Princess Anne and Anne and her daughter Zara.
“All three women share similar traits of upbeat stoicism and a mutual adoration of horses, but the only emotional displays from any of them will usually be between Zara and her husband and children and her uncles and grandparents.”
What is more, being born without a royal title has gone a long way to change Zara’s life, and make it different to her royal predecessors.
Princess Anne has been described as an “Ice Queen” by the expert.
“Anne’s body language could paint her as the Ice Queen of the royals,” Judi said.
“With her often dour facial expression and her deeply unromantic, hands-off displays with both her husbands, she can appear cold and aloof compared to her daughter’s warmth and her love of dishing out hugs.”
The royal line of succession – who outranks who?
The line of succession to the British throne dictates the order in which each member of the Royal Family would ascend to the throne.
It is also seen as a ranking of importance with the head of the line, the Queen, taking the place of ruler.
Older children come before younger children. Traditionally boys came before girls, but this law was changed on 26 March 2015 before the birth of Prince William’s first child.
Incredibly, Catholics are still excluded from the line of succession, as are children born outside of wedlock.
The royals, who usually stick to a strict protocol when appearing in public, often arrive at events in ascending order of importance, with the most important royal arriving last.
Prince Charles, 71, is currently second-in-line to the British throne, followed by Prince William, 37, his oldest son.
Then comes Prince William’s children, George, six, Charlotte, four, and Louis, one, and they are followed by Prince Harry, 35. Prince Harry is succeeded by his son Archie Harrison, born in May 2019.
