Mike Tindall had some very harsh words to say about Prince Harry

Yikes – he didn't hold back.

The Queen's Platinum Jubilée took place in the UK a couple of weeks ago, celebrating Queen Elizabeth's 70 years on the throne.

In attendance was the entire royal family, from senior royals like the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with their three children, to the Queen's grandchildren Eugenie, Beatrice and Zara, alongside their husbands and kids.

And despite stepping down as senior royals a couple of years ago, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had also made the trip from their California home alongside their two kids, Archie and Lilibeth.

However, it was not all one big family reunion as it would happen, as things continue to be rather frosty between Harry and Meghan and other members of the royal family following the Sussexes explosive Oprah Winfrey interview.

'Derogatory insult'

Former England rugby star Mike Tindall is married to Zara, the Queen's granddaughter, and the couple, who are parents to three young children, were in attendance for the entire jubilée.

Mike is known to be good friends with Prince William, but it seems, when it comes to Prince Harry, things are a little less pleasant.

During a party at Buckingham Palance, MMike was overheard referring to the Duke of Sussex as 'b***end' a source has confirmed to the Express.


The rugby personality allegedly used the derogatory term to describe Prince Harry when asked how he felt about the Sussexes returning to London for the celebrations.

Both Harry and Mike were in attendance with their wives at the St Paul’s Cathedral thanksgiving service on June 3 alongside top royal names.

After the service, sources claim the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had approached the Tindalls, but according to the Express, Mike deliberately avoided speaking to the controversial royal pair and instead stared into the distance.

Body language expert Judi James told the outlet that his closeness to Prince William may have made the meeting awkward, and revealed to the newspaper that after having had a turbulent relationship with his younger brother in the past years, William has struck up a bond with his cousins' husband.

James claimed: “Zara looks happy to chat and even turns fully to talk to Harry here, who is looking anxious and keen to get into his own car."

He adds:

“Mike though remains facing forward, looking about and holding his order of service up with a look of awkwardness. In the end he talks to Viscount Lindley, who turns his own back on Harry, cutting the two men off from Zara’s conversation with Harry.”

It isn’t the first time Tindall has allegedly expressed his annoyance with the Duke - during A Question of Sport Live at the London Palladium, he joked the royal family would like to “throw a few punches” in his direction.
