I expected this as Mike and Zara have to earn a living and their major source of income these days is from sponsorships which means maintaining a high profile by selling themselves to the media, which is what they have done here.
I fully agree with you.

In my book, it is perfectly fine for Zara and Mike to raise some money by selling pictures of Mia. This is very different from the wedding of Peter and Zara when members of the BRF were included in the pictures that were sold.

I doubt that Hello wanted to publish the pictures because Mike and Zara are sports personalities, though.

I expect they wouldn't have published them except for the Royal connection.

That's what makes it a bit iffy for me. It doesn't really bother me but I do think it's tacky (especially when there's always an outcry about the Middletons "cashing in" on their Royal connections).

I presume this would have been run by the Queen before going ahead.

Not true; Hello has lots of articles about sports personalities and their spouses.

I have no problem with the pictures in Hello. Zara is not Royal; she and her husband are well known sports people, Hello is not a tacky magazine and although i haven't read it (as it hasn't reached NZ yet), I'm sure it will be respectful and not sleazy as so many 'women's' magazines seem to be these days.

For such a robust-looking couple, little Mia looks quite delicate; I bet she grows up gorgeous.

Actually, no. You're incorrect here. Zara and her brother are not royals. They are descended from royals and are closely related to royals, but like Princess Margaret's children, they themselves are not royals.

In Britain it is clearly established who is and who is not a royal. There are 5 ways you can be a royal:
  1. You are the monarch
  2. You are the child of the monarch
  3. You are the male-line grandchild of the monarch
  4. LPs have been issued creating you a royal
  5. You are a woman married to a man who meets one of the above conditions
Neither Zara nor Peter meet any of these conditions. Yes, it is the result of sexism within the institution as they are grandchild of the monarch, but the fact still remains that they themselves are not royal. Being a member of the overall family and being in the line of succession does not make one royal - heck, being in the line of succession means very little given as there are thousands of people in the line of succession.

I like that Mia has already been introduced to the horse. (and the dogs)

She looks dainty in most of the pictures. The picture on the coverage being the exception.

I also see no problem with them having the pictures in Hello.

Agree 100%!!! The sentence in bold says it all, plus they are sports celebrities in their own right.

No Richard Kay she doesn't face a dilemma. She is not a royal she is relatated to the royals. In my mind Royals are with HM or HRH titles not someone with no title at all. She has virtually no chance of being Queen so in mind she can do whatever she likes as long as it's legal.

I agree, Zara has no dilemma. She knows exactly who and what she is. Richard Kay has the dilemma or maybe he is just a trouble stirrer. Odd

Wow, I hope he never crosses Mike. Well, he may have already crossed Mike as he has trivialized his wife.

Just for the record (mainly because Richard Kay makes me mad!) - these are the accomplishments of an apparent "B list celebrity)

All for Eventing

- Individual and Team Gold in Euro. Championships 2005

- Individual Gold at World Championships 2006


- Team Silver at World Championships 2006
This meant she was reigning World Champion 2006-2010

- Team Gold Euro Championships 2007

- Team Silver at Olympic Games 2012

I don't really understand why some of us are complaining, lots of royals have similar photoshoots in Hello!, Sophie and Freddie Windsor, Prince Edourd and Princess Isabella of Ligne (Belgium) and Lady Helen Taylor are just a few examples.

Mia is a very sweet baby, I love her heart babygro and her fluffy hair is adorable. There's a lovely photo in the magazine of Mia looking up at Mike in an "I'm unsure about this" way. It will be interesting to see if she grows up to be an Olympian like her mother and grandmother, or takes up a different career.

I can't find the thread of general information: Does Michael have siblings? if so, are they married or have children? I know that his father is named Phil. Is that a nickname like Mike or his proper name? Thanks
