Mike Tindalls heartfelt gesture caught on camera as he comforts Queens youngest grandson

Mike Tindall could be seen comforting James, Viscount Severn as they arrived at Westminster Abbey for Queen Elizabeth II's state funeral today.

Former rugby ace Mike, 43, lovingly placed his arm around the Queen's youngest grandchild James, 14, as they made their way into the venue together.

Both dressed in black suits, Mike and James looked understandably emotional as they joined other members of the Royal Family, including Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, for the service.

Mike was joined by his wife Zara, 41, who is the Queen's granddaughter, inside Westminster, while James walked alongside his older sister, Lady Louise Windsor, 18.


Mum-of-three Zara, who shares daughters Mia, eight, and Lena, four, along with one year old son Lucas with Mike, wore a long sleeved black dress to the service, which featured a satin black collar and details.

She paired her dress with a small black hat and pearl earrings, with her blonde locks tied back in a neat bun.

The couple walked in front of Princess Eugenie, 32, and her husband Jack Brooksbank, 36, as well as Princess Beatrice, 34, and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 38.

Zara clasped her husband's hand as they supported each other throughout the emotional ceremony and said goodbye to Her Majesty.

Zara joined other members of the royal family, including the Prince and Princess of Wales’s eldest children Prince George and Princess Charlotte, as they followed the Queen’s coffin from Westminster Hall to Westminster Abbey, before the service commenced this morning.

The moving procession saw the royals carefully follow the late Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin through the streets of London, with Princes William and Harry putting their differences aside to walk side-by-side.

Following the funeral, the Queen’s coffin will be taken to Windsor Castle in a new state hearse for the committal service at St George’s Chapel.

At 3:43pm the bearer party will lift the coffin from the state hearse, where the committal service will commence at 4pm.

The service will be led by the Dean of Windsor, who will give the bidding, while prayers will be said by the rector of Sandringham, the minister of Crathie Kirk and the chaplain of the Royal Chapel at Windsor Great Park.

Her Majesty will be buried at the chapel alongside her late husband Prince Philip, who passed away in April 2021.
