Mike Tindall reveals that they send Mia, 6, back to school in Junes


In an open interview about life in isolation, Mike Tindall described how he teaches his daughter Mia, 6, at home as "nice but also frustrating".

The former English rugby player [41], who also shares Lena [1] with Zara Tindall [39], said the little girl could be “brilliant”, but admitted that children are less likely to “listen to their parents than others”.

Mike announced that they are currently planning to send Mia back to school on June 1, according to government guidelines that will open the doors to receiving Grade 1 and 6 students next month, but admitted that he watched the developments closely.

The father of two said they had barely seen their neighbor, Princess Anne, who was doing charity work, and said the WhatsApp group they share with the Cambridges and Sussexes was "not so active" and revealed that "everyone" just goes on & # 39 ;.

Mike Tindall, who was seen with Zara in Cheltenham, described in an open interview about life in isolation how he teaches his daughter Mia, 6, at home, as "nice but also frustrating"

Speaking to the telegraph, Mike said, "Zara still hopes the horses will come back, they still have to be trained and worked on, so I become a teacher in the morning, which is sometimes very nice, sometimes very frustrating.

He added: "I don't think a child is a great homeschooler because he definitely listens better to other people than to his parents."

And he admitted that he may be frustrated and continued: “Mia enjoyed the first week because it was different from being with mom and dad all the time. But ultimately it's the same people who tell her or tell her what to do, and I think that bores her. & # 39;

Mike explained that Mia is currently scheduled to go back to school on June 1 and admitted that there was no "ideal situation", but said that it was important for children to have "some independence".

Mike also admitted that it was difficult not to see his parents Phil and Linda, who are isolated and in the high-risk category in West Yorkshire – his father had had Parkinson's in the past 18 years and his mother had been struggling with asthma.

The families stayed in touch with video calls, and Mike announced that they were taking as many photos of Lena 1 as possible, as "so much changes in six months" at this age.

And even though they live with Princess Anne, 69, on the same Gatscombe estate in Gloucestershire, they haven't seen Zara's mother since the ban because she was doing charity work.

Zara and Mike and their children live on Princess Anne's Gatcombe Park estate in Gloucester. Mia's school is probably nearby.

They have three dogs, ten horses, and a similar number of cars, including Land Rovers, a horse box, and a Jaguar F-Type.

Gatcombe is in the heart of the Cotswolds and just a few miles from Highgrove, Prince Charles' home in nearby Tetbury.

The queen bought the Grade II listed mansion for her only daughter and then husband, Captain Mark Phillips, as a wedding present, and the couple moved in 1977 – and raised their two children, Peter and Zara, on the property.

The main house has five master bedrooms, four secondary bedrooms, four reception rooms, a library, a billiard room and a winter garden.
