How Does Zara Tindall Make Money?

Zara Tindall, the daughter of Princess Anne and her first husband Mark Phillips, is Queen Elizabeth II's oldest granddaughter and 19th in line to the British throne. But unlike her cousins Princes William and Harry (Prince Charles' sons) and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie (Prince Andrew's daughters), she does not have a royal title or participate in any royal duties. For this reason, she's been able to live a relatively "normal" life compared to the rest of her family. 

In July 2011, she married professional rugby player Mike Tindall in what The Guardian described as a "humble affair." It may not have been televised like Prince William and Kate Middleton's 2011 ornate nuptials, or Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's lavish royal wedding in 2018, but it was attended by many senior members of the royal family, per Vogue. Zara has since started her own family with her husband. The couple has two daughters — Mia Grace and Lena Elizabeth — and welcomed a son named Lucas Philip, in 2021.

When asked how she felt about not possessing a royal title, she said she's thankful. "I'm very lucky that both my parents decided to not use the title and we grew up and did all the things that gave us the opportunity to do," she said in 2015, according to Express. It turns out, Zara is successful in her own right since she's an equestrian and Olympic silver medalist after competing in 2012 (per CBS). Keep scrolling to find out how else she makes her money.

Zara Tindall signed a huge deal with a health app

Zara Tindall makes an impressive income without financial help from the royal family. In fact, she doesn't work for the family business at all. "While many members of the royal family work for the queen, Zara does not," Britain's Express reported in 2020. "This means [she does] not attend all royal outings or represent the monarch at events ... Instead of working in the royal family, Zara has a slightly less public career [as] she is an equestrian."

According to the Evening Standard, she secured a number ambassador deals, including partnerships with Land Rover and Rolex, after taking home a silver medal at the 2012 Olympics. On top of that, Zara also has her own equestrian-inspired jewelry line with Australian jeweler John Calleija. Per the Calleija website, the unique collection features diamond necklaces, rings, earrings, and saddle-shaped cufflinks that range from $5,500 to $43,500.

However, the royal's new deal is what will likely earn a lot of money in the coming years. In 2021, she and husband Mike Tindall announced a partnership with a tech company for a health app called V-Health Passport, which the Daily Mail reported could bring in about $250,000.

All in all, according to Marie Claire, Zara is worth an estimated $20 million — at least as of April 2020.
