Princess Anne, 70, lives at Gatcombe House in Gloucestershire close to her daughter Zara Tindall, 39, and son Peter Phillips, 42. Gatcombe Park Estate was a wedding gift to Anne from her mother Queen Elizabeth II, 94, and both Zara and Peter live in properties in the grounds with their own respective families.
Zara tied the knot with former England rugby player Mike Tindall in 2011.
The couple have two daughters - Lena, two, and Mia, six.
Zara's brother Peter is in the process of divorcing his wife Autumn with whom he has two daughters - Savannah, nine, and Isla, eight.
Zara, Peter and Princess Anne are neighbours and their families often spend time together.
