Zara and Mike Tindall have shared a rare video taken inside their home in Gloucestershire on the Gatcombe Park estate, showing an unusual feature: personalised bins. The clip comes as the couple were filmed taking the ten-minute Covid-19 Rapid test designed by VST Enterprises, as part of their role as ambassadors for the cyber technology firm. Both sets of results came back negative.

The wastebins personalised with 'Z' and 'M' are seen as the couple enter their home from their stables, where Zara and Mike house several horses. The stables themselves, meanwhile, feature a combination of black and white walls with wooden panelling at the top, and frosted glass windows with white frames.

Zara and Mike then moved into what appears to be an office space next door to their stables, showing that it is decorated with light grey walls, brown carpets, and white accents seen on the stair banister, an under-the-stairs cupboard, and a circular white table in the middle of the room. 

The couple also have a cupboard with a wooden worktop at the back of the room, where they have positioned a cream and black kettle on top. A coordinating desk sits at the side with a large Apple Mac desktop, next to two further sets of metal drawers.

In the video, Zara and Mike praised the easy-to-use kit, which allows users to upload their results to their VHealth Passport within seconds. The royals were taking part in a pilot programme called FANS ARE BACK that VST Enterprises has proposed to the UK government as a way to bring back sports fans to stadiums. As sportspeople themselves, Mike and Zara are passionate about supporting this technology so that fans can return to spectating at major sporting events. 

Zara said: "I found the whole experience of taking the rapid test and using the VHealth Passport™ really simple and quick to use and I hope with more people using it we will be able to get our sport back up and running and people enjoying it again."

Gatcombe Park estate is owned by Princess Anne, Zara's mother, who lives in a separate property with her husband Sir Timothy Laurence elsewhere on the grounds. She previously gave a glimpse at the stables in a post honouring her new documentary, The Princess Royal at 70, with a series of photos showing that, as well as horses, the farm is also home to pigs.

Peter and Autumn Phillips – who announced their divorce earlier this year – continue to live on the estate with their daughters Savannah and Isla. It is believed that while they now live on different properties, remaining on the same estate allows them to co-parent and provide a stable support system for their children.
