The remark was made to a fellow guest at a reception following the platinum party at the Palace on Saturday, June 4. Prince Harry is back in the UK to celebrate his jubilee with his wife Meghan and two children.

They were not present at the televised concert with the rest of the royal family, assembled right in front of Buckingham Palace.

Tyndall, who is married to the Queen’s granddaughter, Zara, was sitting behind the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Louis.

Mr Tindall said the outdoor concert, which featured performances by the likes of Duran Duran, Variety and Elton John, allowed the royals to “chat” and enjoy a drink together after the show.

He told The Good, The Bad, The Rugby podcast: “It was at the concert where there was more chatting together because we went in and had a drink with everyone afterwards.

“I think the committee you put it together did a great job.”

Following the concert, Mr. Tindall spoke to a fellow guest and referred to Prince Harry’s behavior as “b*****d”.

During the jubilee celebrations, Meghan and Harry officially appeared as one and only with the rest of the royal family.

They attended Thanksgiving Mass at St Paul’s Cathedral on June 3, but were largely hidden from the public and the media throughout the festivities.

As rows of royals walked out of the cathedral after that mass, Zara stopped near the exit with her husband to talk to those leaving the building.

The TV footage apparently shows them being approached by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who chatted with the Queen’s granddaughter.

But her husband appears to avoid talking to Prince Harry and Meghan throughout the conversation, instead staring into the distance and starting a separate conversation with David Armstrong-Jones, the Earl of Snowdon and the son of the late Princess Margaret.

Prince Harry and Meghan then turn away from the Duke’s cousin toward the cathedral steps, without recognizing the former rugby union player.

Speaking to Express.co.uk following the service, body language expert Judy James suggested Mike’s “closeness to William” appeared to have “created some dilemma when Harry stepped out on the Zara set”.

She added: “Zara seems happy to chat and is even turning around to talk to Harry here, who seems anxious and eager to get in his own car.

Even though Mike is still facing forward, looks forward and maintains his serving order with an awkward look.

“Finally he spoke to Viscount Lindley, who turns his back on Harry, and cuts the two men out of Zara’s conversation with Harry.”

Royal commentator Lady Colin Campbell also claimed following the service that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were “avoided like the plague”, and that “no one will speak to them” at a number of Jubilee events.

Ms Colin told GB News: “Between the boos and cold shoulders they received from everyone, I understand that by the time they left they were quite spitting bricks.

“And then not only was the scandalous coup for them booing, but while they were waiting for their car, no one spoke to them except for Zara.

“Mike Tindall avoided them like the plague. He made absolutely sure he didn’t catch their eye.”

Tindall had previously joked that members of the royal family would like to “throw some punches” at the Duke of Sussex.

He made the comments during a live sports question at the London Palladium in September 2021.

He was joined by former England rugby player Matt Dawson, who recounted a night out with Prince Harry and former teammate Ian Balshaw in Sydney in 2003.

Royal expert Richard Eden said Balshaw and Tindall thought it would be “funny to throw some punches” at the prince to test how long it would take Harry’s personal protection officers to intervene.

“After a few seconds, it turns out,” said Mr. Eden sarcastically.

“At Balmoral, the family is having the same conversation now,” said Mr. Tindall.

He added, “However, the Queen robbed him of his security.”
