And Mike Tindall’s mother, Linda, already feels welcomed by her the parents of her future daughter-in-law Zara Phillips.
She described Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips "most welcoming and kind”.
“Over time we have seen them at different things and become more relaxed with them."
The 63-year-old social worker also said her son and his fiancée shared similar “family values” because they both came from “loving homes".
“I think stability and security has given Mike very strong family values, something I think we share with Zara’s family.
“Although we may seem miles apart, we share family values. They both come from loving homes.”
