British Royal Family

Royal cutie Mia Tindall enjoys a fun-filled family day out

The cheeky tot and her parents, Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall, got into the festival spirit at The Big Feastival in Cotswolds.

It looks like little Mia Tindall has a new obsession, balloon animals!
The adorable two-year-old was spotted playing excitedly with an array of inflatable zoo creatures at The Big Feastival in Kingham, Oxfordshire.
The pint-sized royal was joined by her parents; equestrian mum Zara Phillips and former rugby player Mike Tindall.
And while the fun-filled day in the summer sun was a time for family, little Mia only had eyes for her inflatable friends!
The family of three pictured here with their newest addition; an inflatable turtle!
The toddler was pictured playing and running around, dragging behind her a giant tortoise that she simply did not want to let go – particularly when her daddy tried to take it off her!
Next, Prince George's pal set her sights on a colourful tiger but her love for the turtle ultimately won, and after careful deliberation she was allowed to take it home.
She tried to take both home, but mama Zara told her she could only choose one!
And unsurprisingly, the smiling turtle was the winner!
The sweet great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth is known for her mischievous nature, which perhaps best shone through in a recent royal portrait, taken for Her Majesty in celebration of her 90th birthday.
In the charming snap, mini Mia can be seen cheekily clinging onto The Queen’s handbag while the rest of her great-grandchild appear well-behaved.
Shortly after the portrait’s debut, papa Mike Tindall chatted candidly with Good Morning Britain and revealed how the endearing turn of events all fell into place by chance.
Perhaps Mia will share her new toy with cousins Prince George and Princess Charlotte!
"It just happened at the right time. She was being a bit naughty,” the proud dad revealed.
“The Queen got it quite right when she told her: 'Just hold the handbag now' and she did that. It ended up being a great photo for her.”
"It just turned out to be the right photo at the right time and it will be something we'll always cherish, I think.”
