Ex-England rugby star Mike Tindall joked that the royals would like to ‘throw a few punches’ at Prince Harry in light of recent events, say reports.
He was said to have made the light-hearted comments on Monday at A Question Of Sport Live at the London Palladium, where he was joined by his ex-England teammate Matt Dawson.
Tensions emerged when Harry claimed his brother was “trapped” in the royal system during a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.
In the same interview, Harry also said that his dad Prince Charles had cut him off financially.
Since Harry and wife Meghan left the UK at the beginning of 2020, Harry has only returned twice – for the funeral of Prince Philip in April and for the unveiling of a statue of his mother Princess Diana in July.
Mail Online reports that during the programme the rugby star, who is married to Harry’s cousin Zara, made the comments.
Former teammate Matt Dawson also recalled a boozy night out celebrating England’s 2003 Rugby World Cup win at a bar in Sydney, where they were joined by Prince Harry.
Tindall and teammate Iain Balshaw thought it would be funny to throw a few punches at the Prince, to see how quick his protection officers would pin them to the ground.
He said: “At Balmoral, the family are now having the same conversation. Except the Queen has taken his security away.”
Speaking previously about how he could be depicted in Netflix drama The Crown, he said: “That has to be the main incident, if it was there — the full Harry slap.”
Ex-rugby player James Haskell added: “They don’t even know about that. Now you’ve revealed that.”
