Young Mia seemed to get the better of her adoring father, 37, who was pictured being playfully whipped on the backs of his legs by his daughter. Her mother, Zara Phillips, 35, had handed the riding crop to her daughter before competing at the Wellington Horse Trials in Heckfield, Hampshire yesterday. The Queen’s great-grandaughter showed off her mischievous side as she cheekily ran up to her rugby player father and playfully tapped him on the bottom and legs.

The former England rugby captain told The Daily Mail: "I'm certainly not keen on sending Mia away to a boarding school at the other end of the country.

However nothing, not anything - not even these 9 stories that will prove she is cool AF - will top the tale that Prince William has regaled the world with this week, recalling when his grandmother gave him ‘the most almighty bollocking.’ Speaking to Sky News, William recalled the time that he and cousin Peter Phillips almost injured a young Zara Phillips. 'We were chasing Zara around who was on a go-cart, and Peter and I managed to herd Zara into a lamppost and the lamppost came down and nearly squashed her,’ says William.
