Mike Tindall’s ‘brutal X-rated dig about Prince Harry after Jubilee celebrations

Mike Tindall reportedly made a brutal X-rated comment about Prince Harry during the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations earlier this month.

According to the Express, the 43 year old husband of Zara, 41, told a fellow guest at a reception following the Platinum Party concert at Buckingham Palace on 4 June that the Duke of Sussex was a "b*****d".

At the time, Prince Harry, 37, and his wife Meghan Markle, 40, were celebrating their daughter Lilibet's first birthday elsewhere.

The couple, who are also parents to three year old Archie, were notably absent for the majority of the celebrations throughout the four-day weekend, only really attending the Service of Thanksgiving on 3 June.

While it appears Mike's friendship with Harry may not be very strong, he does seem to have a good bond with his brother Prince William.

Mike and William, 39, may seem like an unlikely pairing as they had entirely different upbringings and have different interests, but they appear to have hit it off and can always be found together at royal events.

Back in May, they both attended the Houghton House Horse Trials in Norfolk, and after spotting one another they immediately gave each other a hug as they beamed.

It's not the first time they've been snapped embracing at royal events, with the duo seeming to share a close bond.

While they may have different interests with William preferring football over rugby, they do have certain things in common with them both being hands-on fathers to three children under the age of eight and being part of the royal family.

The pair have also both been with their wives for a similar length of time, with William meeting Kate, 40, while studying at university and Mike meeting Zara when she was 25, having been introduced at the 2003 World Cup.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are parents to Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, seven, and four year old Prince Louis, and Mike and Zara are parents to Mia, eight, Lena, three, and one year old Lucas.

It's believed that William and Mike's bond has grown thanks to William's relationship with his older cousin Zara, who is the daughter of Princess Anne.

He and Zara grew up not far from each other, with William and Harry being raised in Gloucestershire while Zara and her brother Peter Phillips grew up just a few miles away.

Zara, Peter, William and Harry could regularly be found chatting and hanging out at royal events during their younger years, and William even once told how it was difficult "to keep a straight face" while sitting opposite his cousins in church.

In the Channel 5 documentary, Zara & Anne: Like Mother Like Daughter, a royal commentator opened up about William and Zara's friendship, saying: "William is quite serious by nature, he's actually quite shy – Zara is sort of the comedy cousin that you can turn to where she takes the pressure off everything.

"That friendship is so authentic, there are dozens of photos of William and Zara together over the years, laughing and joking.

"There's a time when Prince William was holding an umbrella over Zara, he's protecting her from the rain. I think he feels very protective towards her and she feels equally protective of him."
