Royal Family want to throw a few punches at Prince Harry, Mike Tindall jokes

The Royal Family would like to "throw a few punches" at Prince Harry following on from their Megxit fallout, former England rugby star Mike Tindall has joked.

The rugby legend made the light-hearted remarks as he joined his ex-England teammate Matt Dawson on A Question Of Sport Live at the London Palladium on Monday.

It comes after Harry boldly told Oprah Winfrey that his brother was "trapped" in the royal system during an explosive interview earlier this year.

The controversial interview was watched by millions across the globe, which also saw Harry mention that he had been financially cut off by his father Prince Charles, reports The Mirror.

In the same interview, he and Meghan both spoke openly about their mental health struggles which put the Windsor's in a negative light.

Since the pair left the UK at the beginning of last year, 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 Monday's programme Tindall, 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 said they thought it would be funny to throw a few punches at the Prince just to see how quickly his protection officers would pin them to the ground.

Tindall 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, Tindall added: "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."

It's been a year like no other for the Queen from the loss of her husband to heartache over Prince Harry. But Her Majesty has also had a lot of cause for celebration, including the birth of baby Lilibet. To mark what a year the Queen has had, OK!
