Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall stun fans by belting out 80s classic at golf bash

Zara Phillips and husband Mike Tindall proved to be a pair of surprises karaoke stars at a celeb golfing tournament in Wales this weekend.

The pair were guests at the star-studded Celebrity Cup at the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport when they showcased their unexpected singing abilities.

Zara, 38, was at the event to support former rugby captain Mike, 40, who was competing at the event.

Zara, granddaughter to the Queen, was also seen at Wimbledon earlier this week.

But rather than deliver a privacy performance like the Duchess of Sussex – who demanded onlookers not take her picture – Zara chose to sit in the stands with the public.

She enjoyed the game from the regular stands, where anyone can buy tickets, rather than the Royal Box, where Meghan and the Duchess of Cambridge sat.

Zara is considered to be one of the more ‘down-to-earth’ royals and doesn’t have the title of Princess, unlike her cousins Beatrice and Eugenie.

Even after the Queen offered her daughter Princess Anne the chance for her children to have royal titles, she refused.

Speaking to The Times in 2015, Zara said: “I’m very lucky that both my parents decided to not use the title and we grew up and did all the things that gave us the opportunity to do.”

She also said she was able to be more creative than her cousin Prince William, who is second-in-line to the British throne after Prince Charles.

“We were able to be more adventurous than say, William,” Zara added.
