Mike Tindall couldn't be more of a supportive husband if he tried. On Thursday, the former rugby player stepped out alongside his equestrian wife on day two of the Badminton Horse Trials.

Princess Anne's daughter had her arm wrapped around her beau as they stood in the sunshine. Zara was every inch her sporty self donning a navy blue jacket, white shirt and riding helmet. Meanwhile, Mike matched his wife in a navy blue T-shirt and navy blue hat.

The outing came just hours after Prince Harry arrived in the UK for his Invictus Games ceremony at St Paul's Cathedral on Wednesday evening.

The husband and wife duo were noticeably absent from the event, as were Harry's cousins Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice.

However, the Prince was joined by his uncle Charles Spencer and aunt Lady Jane Fellowes who attended the service together and were seen hugging their nephew inside the cathedral. 

On Wednesday, Zara was pictured at the first horse inspection wearing a causal ensemble comprised of white skinny jeans, navy blazer and white T-shirt.

Her vibrant blonde tresses were worn down and straight and framed by a pair of glamorous sunglasses which she slipped on to battle the beating rays. 

The outing came days after Zara reunited with her uncle King Charles at the Windsor Horse Show.

The pair were spotted kissing and hugging each other upon the King's arrival. The outing marked the second since news of Charles' returned to public duties two weeks ago. 

Other touching photos from the event showed Zara and Charles laughing together and enjoying each other's company.
