The Tindalls’ middle child proved she is just as athletic as her sporting parents at Wellington Horse Trials today when she performed a variety of acrobatic moves as she watched mom Zara compete at the equestrian event.

The Queen’s 41-year-old granddaughter looked relaxed as she competed in the eventing category at Hook, Hampshire, riding the gray gelding Classical Euro Star.

Wearing a gray long-sleeved top, a denim skirt and cute red Nike sneakers — and with her face adorned in pretty colors — Lena seemed to be enjoying her holiday Monday during the trials.

The younger, older sister to brother Lucas, one, and younger sibling to Mia Grace, eight, played with the family dog ​​and at one point appeared to be taking pictures on a smartphone.

Zara donned a navy blue riding jacket and white breeches during the event. Her horse, Classical Euro Star, who is the royal co-owner with Judith Luff, looked groomed as she flew over the jumps of the course.

It is the royal’s third time participating in an equestrian event this month, following events on August 5 and 11.

Previously, the Queen’s 41-year-old granddaughter looked relaxed in jeans and a pink cap in hand as she inspected the track. The former Olympian will also compete in the Burghley Horse Trials on September 1.

Meanwhile, grinning, Lena was pictured doing handstands with a family friend on the side of the event track.

Then there was a series of roles, using the same friend to stabilize himself during the impromptu acrobatic performance.

Hey kitty!  At one point, Lena took the family's pet for a walk, keeping a close eye on the leash as they strolled around the equestrian event.

Many royals are with the Queen in Balmoral as she takes her annual summer vacation north of the border. The Queen was last seen in public on July 21, when she flew into Aberdeen Airport to begin her holiday.

The source added that for the past two weeks, Her Majesty has been delighted to receive ‘family visits’ at her Scottish estate with ‘many of the great-grandchildren’.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with their children Princes George and Louis and Princess Charlotte left last week, while the Earl and Countess of Wessex and their children Lady Louise and Viscount James also visited. It is also said that the Prince of Wales visits the Queen daily.

Prince Andrew had also been to Balmoral and was eager to talk to the Queen about the possibility for him to land a new position within the royal family, the source said.

Another source added that there had been “a change in recent weeks” in the Queen’s mobility, which meant she was “resting” a lot more.

The 96-year-old is likely to admit she can no longer fly to London to appoint a new prime minister. It had been hoped that the Queen would go to Windsor Castle or Buckingham Palace to fulfill what is known as her “personal prerogative” – ​​to invite a new leader to form a government.

But her health over the past few days “might make it unlikely,” a well-placed source said. The decision will be announced this week.
