In a clip shared to YouTube, the former sportsman - who also has one-year-old daughter Lena with Zara - could be seen grasping his phone in shot during a walking tour of Tokyo.

Mike told the camera: "We started walking at 10:30, it’s now 13:42 — a three-hour walk."

The sweet image showed his wife - who is the daughter of Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips - beaming while wearing dark shades and a boat-neck blue top, beside her grinning husband and eldest child in a white dress.

She briefly joined him during his month-long stint in Japan.

During an appearance on the JoeRugby YouTube channel he referred to her as "Zoey".

Addressing Mike, host Alex Payne asked: “Would you rather marry a royal or win the world cup?”

Taken aback, Mike responded: “Well I’ve done both technically... s***. Would it be my wife that I’m marrying?”

And letting Zara’s nickname slip, Alex reiterated: “Yeah would you rather marry Zoey or win the world cup?”

“Can we take Zoe out of it?” Mike said, before answering, “Obviously if it’s my wife then I’m marrying my wife” prompting plenty of “awwws” from the audience.
