The Queen’s eldest granddaughter, Zara and her husband, Mike Tindall were among those in attendance at the Queen’s procession on Wednesday. Speaking on the latest episode of Palace Confidential, The Mail on Sunday’s assistant editor Kate Mansey told how Zara Tindall was spotted “shot a look” at Mike as he appeared to break the silence that fell upon the Procession service.

Speaking of the atmosphere, Ms Mansey said: “As the procession got closer, obviously we couldn’t see it in the hall, but we could hear the bells tolling and the drums getting closer and closer and inside the hall was complete silence.”

She added: “There was a moment of levity when Mike Tindall cleared his throat and Zara, kind of, shot him a look.

“It was very intimate actually”, adding that “the silence is profound”.

Speaking of the moment the coffin arrived, she said: “It was one of those real moments of history that, as a journalist you think, oh my goodness, I am incredibly privileged to have witnessed, right.”

Speaking at Hello magazine, body language expert Darren Stanton stated that there is “no denying” that Zara and Mike have a “very close relationship”.

Analysing their body language at Royal Ascot earlier this year, he said: “They were pictured with Zara placing her arm through her husband’s arm and she’s gripping on tight.”

He added that while this gesture could be seen in a negative way, it showed “the genuineness of her emotions” and “true happiness”.
