King Charles "would support" Zara Tindall if she decided to sign up for 'Strictly Come Dancing.'

The 41-year-old royal - who is the daughter of Anne, Princess Royal, and her ex-husband Mark Phillips and the niece of the King - could reportedly be interested in taking part in the BBC Latin and ballroom competition following her husband Mike Tindall's success on 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!' earlier this year, with the full blessing of the monarch.

Royal insider Duncan Larcombe said: "Zara appearing on ‘Strictly’ is not out of the realm of possibility. It would be a gamble, but I think if she were to say she wanted to do it, she’d have the full support of King Charles."

The equestrian - who has children Mia, eight, Lena, four and 19-month-old Lucas with the ex-rugby star - is thought to have been asked to take part in 'Strictly Come Dancing' in the past and Duncan reflected that Mike's reaching the semi-finals of the ITV jungle survival show was a " huge gamble" but that it "paid off" eventually.

He told OK! Magazine: "The invitation will already have arrived on Zara’s mat, probably for the umpteenth time, but it would be a very safe programme for her to take part in. Watch this space.

" Appearing in the jungle was a huge gamble for Mike, but it’s really paid off. With his raised profile, Mike will now be of more value to more organisations – organisations that might normally want to get a working royal on board – so I think we can expect to see a lot more of him and Zara over the coming year."
