With school holidays on the horizon, it won't be long before Zara Tindall and her husband Mike have their three children, Mia, Lena and Lucas at home. So, what will the family be up to this summer?

REVEALED: Why Zara Tindall and husband Mike never use the Royal Box at Wimbledon

Mike is set to embark on a six-day 770km cycle in Geneva for charity, so once that's over we're sure he'll be seeking a restful summer.

Their royal home of Gatcombe park is the perfect place for recreation and relaxation as it's set on a vast 730-acre estate which is ideal for long walks and exploring.

Their estate, owned by Princess Anne, will also play host to the Festival of British Eventing this year, after many years of postponements and it's presumed that the whole family will be in attendance to enjoy the fun.

Summer will include family time for the Tindalls 

When the couple welcomed their second child, Lena, in 2018 they decided to spend the summer close to home, at the Queen's house Sandringham, so it seems possible that they will do that again considering Lucas is only 18 months old.

It's likely that the family will visit the Queen's Scottish residence, Balmoral. It's an annual tradition where the royal family take a break from public engagements and partaking in scenic walks and relaxed barbecues.
