“She was in Australia on her gap year and with friends. Clive [Woodward, my coach] just told me i was kicked out for the semifinals so i went out for a beer with two other guys who weren’t playing, Martin Korry and Austin Healey. Zara was in the same bar; We were introduced but we didn’t talk much,” said the retired rugby player Daily Mail in June 2011. “Austin later gave me her number and said, ‘She wants you to text her to say where everyone is going after the finals so she can come with me.’ Aussie will love it if I say that – he will get credit for meeting us.”

Mike texted the rider the next day – and their romance took off.

“We still like to go out and have a good time. We just do it right where it’s not in the media. If you live in London and go out in London, it’s all over the papers,” he told dem Daily Mail back then. “You can still go out and have a good time at Cheltenham. We’re keeping to ourselves now.”

The ex-rugby union player popped the question to the Olympian – who the Princess Royal shares with her ex-husband Captain Mark Phillipsnext to son Peter Phillips – in December 2010. They married a year later at Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh, Scotland.

As they navigate married life, Zara and Mike have also expanded their family, welcoming daughters Mia and Lena in 2014 and 2018 respectively. The couple’s third child, son Lucas, eventually followed in June 2021.

“A little boy has arrived at my house,” Mike Lucas announced of his arrival a few weeks later on an episode of his podcast The Good, the Bad and the Rugby, adding that his wife had been in “messy” labour. “It ran to the gym, got a mat, went to the bathroom, put a mat on the floor, towels down. Luckily the midwife who was supposed to pick us up at the hospital wasn’t far away. She drove up, arrived exactly as we had assumed [position]. And then the second midwife came shortly after the boss arrived.”

He continued at the time: “[Zara] was a warrior as always. She was back on her feet. we went for a walk [the next] tomorrow with him. It’s all ok.”

While raising their royal brood, Zara and Mike have navigated both ups and downs in their marriage.

“A marriage or long-term relationship can’t always be roses and rainbows,” the rugby coach said during a November 2021 appearance in the UK Permissive women. “When you have kids it’s a massive shock, go into your system that you’ve never experienced and there’s going to be these rocky roads. There are things that are thrown at you that need to test both of you and that will test this relationship. The thing is, nobody’s right, nobody’s wrong. You have to get through this together.”

He added: “The thing is nobody’s right, nobody’s wrong, you have to work through it together. She’ll stay angry while I can have a full barney and because of rugby I can have a full barney on someone if they did something wrong and then I can [say]’Shall we hug?’”

Mike joined the cast of I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!, a British reality TV competition. Between various challenges with his roommates, Mike shared the sweet advice Zara gave him before he arrived.

“Zara told me to go and be myself, which is all you can be. She said to enjoy it and be herself,” he recalled in a November episode. “Zara’s biggest concern is how noisy I am when I’m eating. She’ll be delighted if anyone comments on how loudly I breathe while eating, as it’s always a point she brings up.”

He added: “Zara understands it and supports it – with our two careers she goes weeks past competitions and I’ve always gone on tour for three, four weeks in the summer so our relationship has always been designed to deal with that and us are good at dividing and finding ways to deal with it.” Zara Phillips, Mike Tindall’s Relationship Timeline: Photos
