Zara Tindall was banned from driving for six months last week, after being caught speeding near her Cotswolds home.

And because the same rules apply in Australia, she was unable to drive her family around Queensland’s Gold Coast on Saturday.

But fortunately her husband, Mike Tindall, was all too happy to hop into the driver’s seat of their Land Rover and play chauffeur for the day.

On the day, Mike looked relaxed in a white T-shirt, while Zara, 38, opted for a grey top and denim shorts. 

The royal, who is the granddaughter of the Queen, swept her blonde locks off her face into a messy ponytail. 

She accessorised with tortoiseshell sunglasses and wore a pair of thongs.

On Sunday, Mike took to his Instagram story to share snaps of himself driving a loaned Ferrari Portofino while in Australia, and backdated the posts. 

He revealed that he drove the flashy sports car around on the same day that Zara was banned.

On January 8, Zara received the ban in Cheltenham under the ‘totting up’ procedure because she already had nine penalty points on her licence from previous motoring offences over the past three years. 

Magistrates imposed four points for the equestrian’s latest offence – followed by the mandatory six-month ban for exceeding 12 points, after three previous offences in February 2017, February 2018 and December 2018. 

These were for speeding, a fixed penalty offence and a traffic signal penalty.

Through her lawyer, the Queen’s eldest granddaughter pleaded guilty to driving in excess of 70mph on the A417 at Dartley Bottom in Daglingworth near Cirencester on November 6 last year.

Barry Warburton, representing Mrs Tindall, told the court he had been instructed to speak on her behalf because she is abroad. 

He said: ‘I’ve advised Mrs Tindall not to drive from today in Australia as any driving ban in the UK would affect her insurance in Australia.’

In January 2009, her husband Mike was banned from driving for three years and fined £500 for his second drink-drive offence.
