Funny man Mike Tindall teases his wife and her cousin, Princess Eugenie, in a series of Instagram posts which show how fun their relationship really is. In fact, his coverage of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee is so highly regarded by fans that many wish he was in charge of all coverage!

You may be watching the Queen's Platinum Jubilee on TV, or perhaps you've braved the throngs in London - but most of us are keeping up with the festivities online. A marked difference to how people kept up to date, 70 years ago, when the Queen's coronation took place.

Even the Royal Family are taking to their socials, including the one and only Mike - who's fast becoming a fan favorite, owing to his cheeky wit.

As Mike's married to one of the Queen's grandchildren, and father to a trio of the Queen's great-grandchildren, he's a VIP guest at all of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations. However, as the hilarious sportsman and podcaster continues to post about the events - some feel he ought to consider becoming a commentator instead!

One fan commented, "Mike to be the official Commentator for the rest of the Jubilee an all royal events 😂," with another adding, "This is the best Royal commentary!!"

Mike and Zara, who live with their children as well as Princess Anne and her husband Sir Timothy Laurence at the stunning Gatcombe Park in Gloucestershire, are seemingly always having a great laugh - even swapping looks for the fun of it! 

Looking very dapper in his darling wife's hat he said, "#platinumjubilee hats day 2! Fav so far! What colour do you think tomorrow will be???"

Although we can't be sure yet, which look he'll sport, one thing we do know is how deeply he cares for Her Majesty the Queen. Speaking about the 96-year-old monarch on Good Morning Britain last month, Mike said, "I think the Queen is an unbelievable lady...I think people think she's invincible sometimes, but you have to remember she's a 96-year-old at the end of the day."

He added, "She's incredible at what she's done over her lifetime and I can't wait to celebrate that."
