Just days after putting on a romantic display with Zara Tindall at Royal Ascot, Mike Tindall is back to his mischievous self, making fans laugh at his expense by sharing an old picture of himself with hair. 

Mike Tindall is well known for making people laugh, including the Queen, but the joke was on him when the father-of-three shared a rare photo of himself with hair. 

Mike—husband of Zara Tindall, daughter of Princess Anne—hosts a podcast called The Good The Bad The Rugby with James Haskell and Alex Payne, but the topic of conversation in the latest episode was far from sport.

The boys thought it would be funny to share rare photos of them from their younger days, and fans couldn't get over how different Mike looked in his Bath Rugby shirt. 

Mike, 42, captioned the shot, "Felt cute... Might delete later."

What seemed to garner the most attention is the amount of hair he used to have. "I assumed he was born bald and stayed that way," one fan joked. 

Having been with Zara for 13 years now—and arguably as in love as ever—another fan suggested the picture encapsulates the man she fell in love with., 

"This is what first snared Zara. No doubt."

The couple tied the knot in 2011 and have since welcomed three children together. The most recent was born on the bathroom floor of their Gatcombe Park home.

Despite being the Queen's granddaughter, Zara was not given a royal title by her mother Princess Anne.

This has meant Zara—who recently scored points with her Royal Ascot outfit—has enjoyed a relatively private life with husband Mike at their Gatcombe Park home.

And it's clearly doing wonders for their relationship, which hasn't changed much since the early days when Mike had hair.

On their romantic display at Royal Ascot, psychologist and body language expert Judi James said, "When they hold hands it is with the fingers entwined in the kind of gesture of intimacy and closeness you often only see it the early days of a relationship."

"The way that they both walk, with energy and open postures, suggests a very mirrored, like-minded and positive view of life."

Sounds like couple goals to us, hair or no hair!
