Zara and Mike Tindalls daughter Mia hopscotches after Queens committal service in sweet moment

Zara and Mike Tindall's daughter Mia provided some light relief from the solemnity of today after she hopscotched after the Queen's committal service in Windsor.

The eight year old held on to her parents' hands as she did the sweet child's game, dressed in a black dress with a matching headband.

Zara, Mike and Mia were leaving the Queen's committal service at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, before the late Monarch was finally laid to rest beside her late husband, Prince Phillip, in a private burial.

This service followed her state funeral at Westminster Abbey earlier in the day, which was attended by senior figures from all over the world.

Millions watched as both services were moving and poignant – a fitting tribute to Britain's longest-serving monarch who passed away aged 96 on 8 September.

Zara, 41, is the Queen's granddaughter and the daughter of Princess Anne, and Zara's husband Mike, 43, is a former rugby player who used to play for the England national team.

They are parents to three children, Mia, Lena, four, and one year old Lucas, however only Mia attended the Queen's committal service with her parents.

Mia's cousins, Prince George, nine, and Princess Charlotte, seven, were in attendance at the state funeral earlier in the day, however, Prince William and Kate's youngest child, Prince Louis, four, remained at home.

All eight of the Queen's grandchildren attended the funeral, including Zara, her brother Peter Phillips, 44, and her cousins Prince William, 40, Prince Harry, 38, Princesses Beatrice, 34, and Eugenie, 32, Lady Louise, 18, and James, Viscount Severn, 14.

The official website of the Royal Family said a private burial took place in The King George VI Memorial Chapel this evening, conducted by the Dean of Windsor.

“The Queen was buried together with the Duke of Edinburgh, at The King George VI Memorial Chapel,” the statement said.

After the Queen's husband Prince Phillip's death in 2021, his coffin was kept in the Royal Vault before being moved to the Memorial Vault after the passing of the Queen, so that they could be together once again.
