Zara Tindall uses clever parenting trick with children to help them 'embrace challenges'

Seven years later, they announced their engagement and married at Canongate Kirk, Edinburgh, in 2011.

In 2014, the couple welcomed their first child, Mia Grace Tindall, six.

Lena Elizabeth Tindall, two, was born four years later in 2018.

While Zara will often keep a low profile, she sometimes makes appearances with her family.


Zara and Mike both share a love of sport which may have influenced their parenting style, according to parenting experience manager at nursery Abacus Ark, Jo Pandolfi.

The expert said the couple could encourage gentle competition to boost the children’s confidence.

They have been seen doing this when engaging in competition with their children.

Jo said: “Zara and Mike Tindall want their daughters to be very competitive and Mike apparently beat his six-year-old when teaching her to surf.

However, the royals seem to challenge their children without knocking their confidence.

Jo explained this can help prepare them for obstacles in the future.

“They are then far more likely to embrace new challenges as they grow and develop and will have better self esteem.”

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, 38, his oldest son.

Then comes Prince William’s children, George, seven, Charlotte, five, and Louis, two, and they are followed by Prince Harry, 35. Prince Harry is succeeded by his son Archie Harrison, born in May 2019.
