Prince Philip: Mike Tindall shares photo of Duke with great-granddaughter Mia Grace on Instagram


Mike Tindall has paid tribute to Prince Philip by sharing a photograph of the Duke eating with his great-granddaughter Mia Grace.

The former England rugby pro, 42, who married Philip’s granddaughter Zara Tindall, 39, in 2011, uploaded the snapshot to Instagram earlier today. 

He shared the photo, which he credited as being taken by the Duchess of Cambridge, alongside a caption that read: ‘It’s been a very sad week but it has given us time to reflect on great memories and stories both personal and shared. 

‘A devoted family man who we will forever miss but always love.’

The post comes on the eve of the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral which will see him laid to rest at St George’s Chapel, London, tomorrow.

The snapshot of Prince Philip, who passed away aged 99 at Windsor Castle on Friday, showed the Duke sitting outside a log cabin.

He was leaned over a wooden table to enjoy a meal in the countryside setting alongside Mike and Zara’s seven-year-old daughter Mia Grace. 

The photograph was taken by Kate Middleton – but it is not the first time the Duchess, one of the world’s most photographed people, has gone behind the lens.

She was named as the new patron of the Royal Photographic Society earlier this year following her flourishing passion in photography.

It comes just days after Prince William and Kate released their own touching photograph of the Duke of Edinburgh and the Queen with seven of their great-grandchildren.

The previously unseen photograph, which was taken at Balmoral Castle in 2018 by the Duchess of Cambridge, shows Prince Philip with his arm around Peter Phillips’ daughter Isla, while the Queen, 94, can be seen holding a then-baby Prince Louis in her arms.  

Prince George and Princess Charlotte can be seen offering a cheeky smile in the picture, while Peter’s elder daughter Savannah Phillips poses alongside the Tindalls’ daughters Mia and Lena.  

The photograph does not include the couple’s three youngest grandchildren, who were born in the last few years.
