Zara Tindall has opened up about missing her grandmother Queen Elizabeth II and said she was ‘a huge influence’ in her life.

The royal, 42, who is the daughter of Princess Anne, spoke to The Australian Women’s Weekly magazine about her bond with the late Queen, who died in September 2022 at the age of 96.

Zara said: ‘When you’ve got someone who’s a huge influence in your life [it leaves a hole]… all of us are so lucky to have had her for so long.’

The mother-of-three, who is a professional equestrian, also chatted about the special bond she shared with her late grandmother over horses. 

She said: ‘She very much knew what was going on in my career as I was growing up, you got to see her real passion and love for the horses and that side of her.’

Queen Elizabeth had a passion for horseracing and passed down her love of the sport to her only daughter Anne and later, her eldest granddaughter, Zara.

Zara took her equestrian career professional in 2003, she regularly competes in equestrian events, and has previously won a number of Olympic and Championship medals. 

She was named Sports Personality of the Year in 2006 after winning the Eventing World Championship in Aachen, Germany.

The late monarch’s love of horses and racing sparked a huge growth in equestrianism in Britain and she gained respect as a breeder when her horse came second in the Epsom Derby.

She became the patron of many organisations focused on horses, including the British Horse Society, the Fell Pony Society and the Highland Pony Society. 

Zara also admitted she is grateful that her children, Mia, nine, and Lena, five, and son Lucas, two, who she shares with husband Mike Tindall, got to meet their great-grandmother.

She said: ‘To have our children, her great-grandchildren, have that influence as well was incredible. It was a very precious time and we’re hugely grateful for it.’

Although she said that her youngest Lucas doesn’t remember his great-grandmother but he does have pictures with her. 

The busy mother-of-three also opened up about ‘mum guilt’ saying it’s easy to feel guilty that she isn’t doing enough.

However she admitted she has learned to live with it as she knows it will ‘never go away.’ 

It comes after Zara looked effortlessly elegant last week as she joined her cousin Princess Eugenie at her slavery charity’s first ever winter gala.

The royal was the picture of sophistication in a modest gown, which matched Eugenie’s in glamour.

Zara looked sensational in the black shirt dress with tie belt, statement sleeves and wore her blonde locks in an updo at the Battersea Arts Centre.

She was also spotted alongside Theresa May, Julia de Boinwille, Natalie Pinkham inside the swanky gathering.

Eugenie co-founded the Anti-Slavery Collective in 2017 with her friend Julia.

Singer Ed Sheeran was among the guests at the glitzy event, as well as James Blunt – and even Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas made an appearance.

Speaking ahead of the event at Battersea Arts Centre, Eugenie, 33, praised Ed Sheeran for his involvement, saying: ‘It’s the most insane thing. Ed is game changer and an entertainer of a generation, so I’m absolutely lost of words that he’s coming.

‘He’s also one of the nicest people so I’m truly honoured and very grateful to have him there and help us on The Anti-Slavery Collective’s mission.
