Queen's Granddaughter Zara Tindall 'So Pleased' She Wasn't Given Royal Title, Says Father-in-Law

This is also how Mike remembers it. "By the time Zara and I got together in 2003, they’d already met William and Harry," he tells the Sunday Times about his parents.

"Those boys were huge England fans and they’d come in after every game. Mum and Dad met Princess Anne early on too and it was incredibly relaxed. Zara was living in a little two-bed flat in Nailsworth (Gloucestershire), so it wasn’t exactly grandiose."

On Sunday, Mike completed the arduous Raid Local cycling fundraiser in aid of The Cure Parkinson's Trust, a disease which Phil has tragically suffered from for two decades.

This saw riders from all over the world leave their homes and attempt to cycle 12,000 feet uphill and complete a distance of at least 85 miles in aid of the charity, which funds research into a cure.

"I don't want to see another son or daughter have to watch what I've had to watch," Mike revealed in an Instagram post on Saturday, midway through a training run. "I've watched a strong, purposeful role model slowly get eaten away," he added.
