Zara and Mike Tindall have been spotted enjoying a day out at the Wimbledon Championships in south London, as the annual tennis tournament increases its capacity each day.

The Queen's granddaughter and her husband were pictured strolling around the grounds at SW19 where fans have been allowed into watch the action when they present a negative COVID test or show they have been double jabbed.

The Tindalls are big sports fans, having both had successful sporting careers, and are regularly spotted enjoying the tennis action at Wimbledon.

Zara wore a navy and white striped shirt dress, which hit below the knee, with navy ankle wrap wedges. 

She appeared to be carrying a jacket over the top of her cross body bag, in case the temperature dropped.

Posing for photographs, she removed her Ray-Ban sunglasses, and tucked her blonde bob behind one ear. The royal usually has her hair up, but the stylish bob cut looks to be a fresh change for the mother-of-three.

She was wearing minimal jewellery, choosing just a wristwatch and her wedding and engagement rings, as well as a couple of rings on her right hand.

Tindall opted for a shirt, tie and a light blue blazer with black trousers. 

Finished off with suede shoes, it was a much more relaxed look than his last major sports outing at Royal Ascot in June, when he donned a top hat and tails.

A lanyard around Zara's neck revealed she was there to enjoy the matches on Centre Court, with hospitality.

The biggest draw of Wednesday will be the Gentlemen's Singles quarter-finals, with Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer among those in action, seeking a place in the semis.

The Tindalls are far from the only royals to take in the action on Centre Court at Wimbledon, as the Duke of Kent, the Queen's cousin, has been pictured there frequently since last Monday.

He is joint president of the All England Lawn Tennis Club with the Duchess of Cambridge, who made a visit to the venue on Friday.

However at some point that day ,Kate was told she'd been in contact with someone who had COVID-19 and so she had to leave to begin self-isolation.

Kate usually presents the Gentleman's Singles trophy to the winner on Sunday afternoon but is unlikely to be able to if her quarantine has not finished.

The Queen, 95, is rarely seen at Wimbledon and is not thought to be a tennis fan.

The Tindalls are marking their 10th wedding anniversary later this month, on 30 July.

They married in Edinburgh in 2011, just a few months after Zara's cousin Prince William married Kate in London.

The Tindalls now live in Gloucestershire and have three children - Mia, Lena and Lucas, who was born in March.

They don't carry out royal duties but are close to the rest of the Royal Family.

Tindall even got a taste of a royal engagement for himself when he held a video call with the Duchess of Gloucester to raise awareness of Parkinson's, which his father has.

Zara is an Olympian horse rider, while Tindall was an England rugby player. He now appears on a podcast called The Good, The Bad and The Rugby and often divulges details of royal life alongside sports analysis.

They both attended the funeral of Prince Philip in April, and also accompany other members of the Royal Family to events like Royal Ascot.

Wimbledon 2021 has been one of the pilot schemes for a return to mass events, so spectators don't have to wear masks while seated in the stands, but do have to put them on around the grounds.

As the fortnight has gone on, the stands have built from 50% capacity and will be at 100% by the time of the finals at the weekend.
