Zara Tindall: this astonishing revelation on the origin of her first name and Charles III

Today is not a day like any other within the royal family since it is Zara Tindall’s birthday. Indeed, Princess Anne’s daughter celebrates her 43rd birthday this Wednesday, the opportunity to take a closer look at herour first name is not so common.

It is true that in the British royal family, we rather expect to find names anchored in history such as Mary, Victoria, Edward or Henry. What was the surprise of the public in 1981, when they discovered that Queen Elizabeth’s first granddaughter was called… Zara.

Zara Tindall: why Charles deemed her name appropriate

Obviously, it is difficult today to mention this name without thinking of the famous Spanish brand of ready-to-wear, but as you can imagine, it is not this reference which inspired the name of the heiress. No, as Princess Anne confided, it’s her brother Charles who is behind the idea.

The baby’s arrival was quite sudden and positive and my brother thought that Zara (a Greek name meaning ‘bright like dawn‘, editor’s note) was an appropriate name. It is therefore the joyful arrival into the world of the little girl that inspired this name.

Zara Tindall: who are her three children?

And Zara Tindall, herself a mother of three children, clearly wanted to perpetuate the tradition with her descendants. While her cousins’ children inherited rather traditional first names (George, Charlotte, Louis, James, Beatrice, etc.), the rider called hers Mia, Lena and Lucas. A spirit of modernity often seen at Mike and Zara Tindall, who bring a breath of fresh air to the royal family.
