They're considered one of the most relatable royal families.

And this weekend the queen's eldest granddaughter, Zara, and her husband, Mike Tindall, and their adorable brood proved that once again. 

While Zara was competing in the Festival of British Eventing at Gatcombe Park over the weekend, Mike and their three children were spotted blending in with the crowds as they cheered on their equestrian mom.

The 43-year-old retired England rugby player was in full dad mode and had his hands full with daughters Mia (8) and Lena (4) and son Lucas (1).

Lucas seems to have stolen the show as he was clearly having fun with his family. At one point Mike was seen throwing a clearly delighted Lucas up in the air as Mia watched on.

But the boys did not have all the fun. Mike also made sure he took Lena for a ride on the big Ferris wheel while Mia joined her dad and Lucas on another fun carousel ride. 

They looked like any other family enjoying some fun in the sun.

Princess Anne (71) was also present to support her daughter and was dressed very casually at the event held on the Princess Royal's estate.

The annual event, which is in its 28th year, takes place on a course designed by Princess Anne, a keen horsewoman who competed in equestrian events in the 1976 Olympics. It includes events such as dressage, show jumping and different cross-country phases.

Zara (41), also an Olympian, competed on horseback during the festival's opening day. And she looked like she couldn’t be prouder to have her whole family present watching her. At one point Zara, who wore matching outfits with her son, was seen smiling as she watched Lucas petting a horse. 

It’s not the first time the kids have cheered on their mom.

In April this year Mike and the kids were spotted supporting Zara at the Barefoot Retreats Burnham Market International Horse Trials in Norfolk.

Zara has always been open about her love of horses and riding, especially at a professional level. "I love the big occasion because I love the pressure sitting on a horse that you know is good enough, you are fully prepared, riding for your country  it's what your dreams are made of," she said in 2020.

Even better than that is she has the cutest support squad cheering from the sidelines.
