A playful moment between Prince George and his cousin Mia Tindall captured the attention of spectators gathered to watch the Firm’s Sandringham walkabout. Members of the Royal Family came together to mark the festive season with a traditional service at Sandringham Church. Following the service, excited royal fans were greeted by members of the firm, but cheeky Mia nearly disrupted the show as she attempted to draw Prince George away from the crowd.
Nine-year-old Prince George was flanked by his parents the Prince and Princess of Wales as he and his two younger siblings – Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis – chatted with the public on Christmas Day.
As the young royal took centre stage in the Christmas Day walkabout, he was nearly distracted by his cheeky cousin, eight-year-old Mia Tindall.
In a video clip of the sweet interaction, Prince George can be seen captivated by the crowd as Mia walks by and pokes him, in an attempt to snatch his attention.
Prince George remains engrossed in the festive walkabout and doesn’t turn, leaving Mia to walk away, disappointed but laughing.
Mia is the eldest child of Zara Tindall, daughter of Princess Anne, and her husband, former rugby player Mike Tindall.
Though technically a second cousin to Prince George, the youngsters appear to share a close relationship and are frequently seen at one another’s side during large-scale royal events.
Earlier this year, the duo were captured laughing and joking together on the last day of the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations as members of the family gathered to watch the Pageant.
