Mike Tindall has taken to social media to celebrate his grandmother-in-law's historic 70-year reign on the throne with a heartfelt post.


The post from Mike featured eight images of Her Majesty, spaced over the seven decades since she first took to the throne in 1952.

This post was a little late from the sportsman who didn't celebrate the Queen until a few days after other royals. Prince Charles led tributes for Queen's Platinum Jubilee on Sunday, February 6, which marked the exact date that the Queen's father King George VI died and she became Queen. 

Showing his close relationship with the Queen, Mike simply captioned the post with the cheeky phrase, "What a Lady." While other royals went for gushing posts that called her 'inspirational,' and referred to the Queen as 'Her Majesty,' Mike's casual post showed his admiration for the Queen and their close bond.  

Fans loved this post from the former professional rugby player and many commented with their delight.

"Lovely grandmother-in-law you have!" said one commenter, pointing out his royal connections with Her Majesty.

"And you get to have Christmas dinner with her and call her family- amazing!!" added another fan.

One commenter picked up on Mike's phrasing in the post and said, "Love this. Our Queen 👑. What a lady indeed ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️"

"She’s getting better and better! What a lovely tribute," added another fan.

Although the Queen began her Platinum Jubilee celebrations with a tea party at Sandringham House on Sunday, February 6,  the official celebrations for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee are set to take place later in the year. 

The Queen celebrates Platinum Jubilee five months ahead of June bank holiday weekend because the February date marks her father's death, but the date in June marks her actual coronation.

The momentous occasion will be celebrated in June with a pudding competition and four-day bank holiday so that Britons can celebrate the Queen's 70 years on the throne with nation-wide festivities.
