Zara and Mike Tindall attended a Buckingham Palace party as the royals received an invite from Prince William.

The King’s niece was joined by the next generation of the Royal Family at the Sovereign’s Garden Party on Tuesday afternoon.

Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie and Peter Phillips mingled with guests in the drizzly weather in the Buckingham Palace gardens.

While the late Queen Elizabeth II's grandchildren are often seen at family events together, they are not working members of the Royal Family and hold their own jobs.

But today the cousins gathered in force to support the Prince of Wales as he stepped out to hold the event on behalf of King Charles.

Zara Tindall stunned in a pearl-coloured maxi dress with a full-bodied skirt by designer Laura Green.

She matched the £1,500 dress with a pair of peach heels and a pink hat decorated with feathers.

The royal appeared alongside her husband, Mike Tindall, who mirrored his wife's outfit with a light pink tie.

The couple mingled with thousands of guests who were invited to the event in recognition of their public service.

Guests were from a number of the Prince and Princess of Wales’s patronages, military affiliations and passion projects.

These included Homewards, RAF Valley, Swim England and tenants across Duchy of Cornwall sites.

As royal garden parties are “rain or shine” outdoor events, the Royal Family members and guests carried umbrellas to shield themselves from the rain.

In 2019, the late Queen Elizabeth joked that the weather “can be a bit of a worry,” adding: “Well, you do rather hope the sun shines as when you invite 8,000 people to have tea on your lawn.”

Earlier this month, King Charles and Queen Camilla hosted the first garden party of the year with Princess Anne, Prince Edward, the Duchess of Edinburgh and the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester.

The party coincided with Prince Harry’s Invictus Games anniversary service at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London.

The monarch also stepped out for a garden party on May 15, where the King met a number of guests from the creative arts industry including TV host Maya Jama.
