Mike Tindall jokes The Crowns main incident should famous Prince Harry slap

Former England Rugby player Mike Tindall has joked that he would portray a "Harry slap" if he was ever depicted on The Crown.

Mike, 42, who is married to Harry’s cousin Zara Tindall, reportedly made the outspoken comments last year while speaking on a podcast with England star James Haskell.

The rugby star appeared to allude to an incident that previously took place in 2003 where he and his Rugby teammates ended up delivering the Duke of Sussex a few playful slaps.

While discussing how he could be depicted in Netflix drama The Crown, Mike said on the podcast: "That has to be the main incident, if it was there — the full Harry slap."

Surprised by his admission, James replied: "They don't even know about that, now you've revealed that."

Earlier this week, while taking part in A Question Of Sport Live at the London Palladium, Mike recalled the funny occurrence that took place with Prince Harry

According to The Daily Mail, Mike was joined by his former England teammate Matt Dawson when the subject of the Prince came to light.

The pair then began to discuss Harry’s previous visit to Sydney in 2003, during which he was out celebrating England’s Rugby World Cup win with the players.

When divulging further into the story, the sportsmen recalled how Mike and another player, Iain Balshaw decided to throw a few punches at Harry to test whether his security staff would quickly intervene.

However, they soon learned that it would only take a few seconds for Harry's security to pin them to the ground.

Mike joked: "At Balmoral, the family are now having the same conversation.

"Except the Queen has taken his security away," he added.

Rugby star Mike has never mentioned his Sydney "attack" on Harry before but he may have implied that something went on last year while speaking on a podcast.

In March, Harry and his wife Meghan took part in an explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey and exposed some of the royal family secrets, as well as revealing that one family member had "concerns" over the colour of their son Archie's skin.

The couple also voiced their worries over apparently being stripped of their royal security since making their move to live in the US.

During the interview, Harry said: "The biggest concern was that while we were in Canada, in someone else’s house, I then got told at short notice security was going to be removed."

He continued: "By this point, courtesy of the Daily Mail, the world knew exact . . . our exact location.

"So suddenly it dawned on me, 'Hang on a second. The borders could be closed. We’re going to have our security removed. Who knows how long lockdown’s going to be? The world knows where we are. It’s not safe. It’s not secure'."
