Prince William and Kate’s kids have ‘very close’ bond with cousins

The Queen’s grandson-in-law spoke about his children’s bond with the Cambridge kids

The Duke and  Duchess of Cambridge ’s children have a “very close” bond with their cousins.  Mike Tindall , who is married to  Prince William ’s first cousin  Zara Tindall , opened up about his kids’ relationship with the Cambridge children during a recent appearance on  Good Morning Britain.

“Our family growth has been quite intertwined with theirs,” Mike said of the Cambridges. “Our kids are very, very close, which is great for the kids that they’re always going to have some cousins and those cousins—are going to be the same age and can grow up with them.”

Like William and Kate, Mike and Zara tied the knot in 2011. The Tindalls welcomed their first child, daughter Mia, in 2014. Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess’ eldest child  Prince George , whom Zara is a godparent to, was born in 2013.

Both couples now have three children. William and Kate’s daughter  Princess Charlotte  was born in 2015, followed by  Prince Louis  in 2018. In addition to Mia, Zara and Mike are also parents to daughter Lena, two, and son Lucas, who was born in March.

Following the birth of Princess Charlotte, Mike spoke with HOLA! USA’s sister brand HELLO! about his and the Cambridges’ kids. He said, “They’re all quite close in age and hopefully they’ll grow up as good friends.”

The Tindall and Cambridge children have been photographed in the past at Princess Eugenie’s wedding and the Burnham Market Horse Trials. After Prince Philip’s death last month, a portrait featuring Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis with Mia and Lena at Balmoral Castle was released. The picture, taken by Kate in 2018, showed  Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh surrounded by seven of their great-grandchildren, including Peter Phillips’ daughters Savannah and Isla Phillips.
