Mike Tindall has revealed that Prince George and Mia Grace have met

"I don’t think Mia will remember that day, she was two months old, but it was great, it was carnage," he said, speaking at his charity golf tournament, Celebrity Golf Classic.

"Mia was just chilling and sleeping, she sleeps a lot, she’s quite relaxed."

Due to their parents' packed schedules, the meeting was the only time the royal cousins have met. When asked if he has discussed parenting with William, Mike replied: "He’s too busy, we don’t see him very often, he’s so busy but I’m sure when we have a proper catch-up we might do." The sportsman also revealed how much he and Zara were enjoying being parents. "Once you get to four months and they start smiling at you, when you get interaction your bonds grow more and more," he said. “Like this morning I was playing with her and she smiles if you do something funny and it makes you feel good about yourself.”
