Zara Tindall has revealed the one indulgence that she has treated herself to, and it’s one that we’re probably all going to be pretty jealous of.

Zara Tindall has always been known for being one of the most relatable royals.

With her lack of royal title, quiet family life and limited royal engagements, the Queen’s eldest granddaughter, who is the daughter of the Queen and Prince Philip’s only daughter Princess Anne, has always been considered one of the most “normal” members of the royal family.

So while we expect the Cambridges and Sussexes to have the most lavish of everything that they might need, when it comes to Zara and her husband Mike, their lives seem a little more accessible.

But the Olympic equestrian has now spilled on one of the indulgences that she just had to treat herself to.

Speaking to The Telegraph, the understated royal revealed that, while she has a pretty relaxed taste in fashion, she has treated herself to something that we can guarantee most of us wish for on a daily basis – a walk-in wardrobe.

"I have one, finally," said Zara. "Everyone wants a walk in wardrobe, don't they?

“It was always a big thing getting older and realising that dream of having a walk in wardrobe. That thing where you can find everything you need on hand immediately is amazing.

“When we moved into our current house that was a must for us."

Speaking about what she keeps in the wardrobe, the mum-of-two, who said she prefers online shopping rather than commissioning bespoke pieces like the more prominent royals, added, "I've kept my riding boots from my World Championship win. Presents always become sentimental from family, too.

“And then you have pieces that you go back to that you rely on in different moods, or that make you feel good about yourself on different occasions."

The Olympic silver medallist, who is currently 18th in line to the British throne, also opened up about her sense of style, saying, "My style is very, very casual.

"Especially if I'm just at home with the children in the country. It's jeans, flat boots or trainers and then a gilet or a coat over the top.

“Through the years,” she continued, “whenever going to an occasion, the main lesson that my mother taught us was just to make sure that you look presentable, clean and tidy. That was always handed down to us."
