Mike Tindall finally mentions Prince Harry in the I'm a Celebrity jungle

Mike Tindall has remained very tight lipped about the royal family during his time in the I'm A Celebrity… Get me out of Here! jungle, but on Thursday's instalment of the show, the rugby pro finally mentioned his wife Zara's cousin Prince Harry.

Fellow campmate Owen Warner quizzed the royal on first meeting his now-wife Zara and asked Mike if he felt any pressure that's when the Prince's name was brought up.

Owen asked: "Did you feel a bit of pressure? If I was chatting to a girl and then found out she was royalty I'd be nervous."

Mike said: "No because we were friends first and then William and Harry were massive England fans at the time, so we'd met them numerous times. Met more of the family than you'd normally have met of the woman you start dating.”

Mike knew Zara's mum before dating the royal

The father-of-three explained that he knew that Zara was a royal right away because he was familiar with her mother Princess Anne, as she is the patron of Scottish Rugby.

Over the years, Mike and Prince Harry have attended many events together, both official engagements and more lowkey events such as sports and private parties.
