A big surprise came when Mike Tindall appeared on the UK edition of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here in November. Because since the marriage of the queen’s granddaughter Zara Phillips (41) In July 2011, the former rugby player became a member of the British Royal Family.
In the latest episode of his podcast “The Good, the Bad and the Rugby”, the 44-year-old has now revealed which senior royals he asked if he should take part in the jungle camp. People asked Mike if he needed permission from the royal family to appear on the TV show. He then said that he did not need to seek permission, but respectfully asked a senior member of the royal family. “You don’t want to upset anybody,” says Mike. “I am with the Prince of Wales [Prinz William, Red.] He talked about it and said, ‘It’s great, go and enjoy it.’
The former athlete added that she had not received any instructions about what she could and could not say about the royal family on the show. However, he admitted that some “talks” about the royal family were deliberately kept short so they could not be aired. Despite this, Mike was able to reveal some funny stories, including how he was on a “drunk” first date with his wife, and their relationship was off to a “great start”. And he also shared a funny moment when he ripped his pants in front of his royal mother-in-law Princess Anne, 72, at his 30th birthday party.
