Showing how close she is to her cousins, Savannah cuddled up to Lena, three, the daughter of Zara Tindall and former England Rugby international Mike, who looked delighted to watch her mum compete. 

Meanwhile, Lena’s sister Mia Tindall, eight, sported an adorable ‘big sister’ T-shirt as she clutched sweets and enjoyed the sunny spring day.
