Mike Tindall has revealed what he and wife Zara have been using as a doorstop at their home: a James Haskell novel.

Mike took to Twitter with a photo of the book, What A Flanker, in use as it held open a glass door with a grey frame, in a room with cream walls, off-white wainscoting and wooden parquet flooring.

She has shared several glimpses inside of the house since the coronavirus pandemic began and she has been working from home. In April, she filmed a video message from a room with cream walls and metallic bronze furniture including a large gilded mirror and a glass cabinet filled with animal ornaments, and four rectangular framed photos hanging on the wall.

When she celebrated her 70th birthday on 15 August, she posed for a series of photos inside the home, including the living room. It's decorated with cream tiles on the floor, white walls and a selection of dark oak furniture including a dresser, a bookcase and a shelving unit.

Anne's son Peter Phillips and his ex-wife Autumn also continue to live in separate buildings on the estate with their daughters Savannah and Isla. It is believed that while they announced their divorce earlier this year, they will remain living on the same estate in order to continue co-parenting and to provide a stable support system for their children.
