British Royal Family

Mia Tindall continues to gallop into our heart during a royal family outing

She's the cheeky three-year-old that is the reigning queen of sass.

Princess Anne's entire family stepped out to the Gatcombe Horse Trials, to support her daughter Zara, who was competing in the competition.
Cheering on the royal was Zara's hubby Mike, their cheeky little one Mia, her cousins, Uncle Peter and Aunty Autumn Phillips’ daughters Savannah, six, and Isla, four, along with Zara's stepfather Timothy Laurence.
"She loves being outside and is full of life," dad Mike quipped.
Dad keeps a watchful eye over his little one.
The event s held at the home of HRH The Princess Royal and sees 16 nations including riders from Australia.
What an adorable duo.
Also joining the royals was Mia's pet boxer dog, Spey.
While the family outing fell on Mother's Day, it was clear it was about the little ones.
The three-year-old was couldn't contain her smile as she enjoyed the Gloucestershire countryside with her cousins.
Zara and Mike Tindall's precious daughter celebrated her third birthday on January 17.
The adorable blonde can't stop charming us with her hilarious and very boisterous antics.
Come on Spey!
Looks like Mia lost that round.
Grandma Anne tries to contain her laughter as Mia gets up to her antics.
From galloping on her daddy's shoulders to stealing her great grandmother Queen Elizabeth's handbag during royal photos, nothing is off-limits for the free-spirited tot.
Staying to true to form, the 17th in line to the throne tumbled down hills, climbed on top of dad, showed her pets who's boss, all while looking exceptionally adorable.
Much to everyone's amusement, the toddler has no qualms running amok... And Mia's parents don't mind one single bit.
"She's got quite a little personality on her,” the 38-year-old former rugby star said in a previous interview. "We encourage that."
Look, there's mum!
Like daddy, like daughter.
Aunty Autumn described Mia as “a little wrecking ball” and “a little monkey.” Just like her mum and William, the little tot has a great friendship with her cousins.
She always makes us chuckle!
Last year, the pint-sized royal let her mischievous nature shine in an official royal portrait, taken for Her Majesty in celebration of her 90th birthday.
In the now famous snap, Mia proudly holds onto The Queen’s handbag while the rest of her great-grandchild appear well-behaved.
"It just happened at the right time. She was being a bit naughty,” the proud dad revealed during a chat with Good Morning Britain.
“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.”
Making new friends.
The youngster had her eye set on that crepe...
Climb aboard!
Mia is a little cherub as she goes through her post-crepe blues.
Mike spoke to the The Times about his parenting style, musing“You've got to be a hands-on dad nowadays, plus Zara spends a lot of time with the horses, so I don't have much choice in that sense."
But if snaps of Mia at the polo show us anything, it's that she has no desire to follow in her mother's footsteps when it comes to horse riding.
Despite her hilarious disinterest, Mike admitted he will “support Mia in any sport she chooses." But he “selfishly hopes she chooses golf to help improve my own game.”
Playtime with granny and grandpa.
"She's got quite a little personality on her, and we encourage that."
