It’s been fairly quiet from everyone except Pippa since Pippa’s wedding – Prince Harry has been abroad for about a week but it seems none of the regular royal reporters are with him – but luckily Mike Tindall (Zara’s husband) is always good for a chuckle. His comments never make huge waves, but he’s been surprisingly candid over the years. His latest comments have him commenting on Meghan Markle and not being invited to Pippa’s wedding.
“Former England rugby star MIKE TINDALL, who is married to the Queen’s granddaughter ZARA PHILLIPS, has revealed he plans to ask Meghan to blag him a spot in the legal drama once he is introduced to her.
“The former sports ace said: ‘I’m excited as I’m a massive fan of Suits so I want to pick her brain more on that than anything else. A cameo in Suits is one thing I would definitely do, I could be a door bouncer or something. I’ll have to ask Meghan if she can get me in.’
“Mike has dipped his toe in the world of telly with appearances on two reality TV shows. In 2014 he competed in the second series of Channel 4’s winter sports contest The Jump, but was pipped to top spot by JOEY ESSEX. The following year he took part in Bear Grylls: Mission Survive on ITV — during which he had to drink his own urine — but again emerged runner-up.
“However, he could soon be returning to reality TV after being approached by bosses to join the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing line-up. At Formula 1 host NATALIE PINKHAM’s charity gala, Hope & Homes For Children: End The Silence, at London’s Abbey Road, he said: ‘My wife and I have been asked a couple of times now to do Strictly. I’m not sure it’s our gig, but I would never say never.’
“Despite Beeb bookers banging down his door, one invitation Mike missed out on last month was to PIPPA MIDDLETON’s wedding. He said: ‘We weren’t invited to Pippa’s wedding actually, we don’t see them that much. The party looked really good — I haven’t seen any of the crew to hear the stories and gossip yet. I haven’t been able to get the lowdown.’
“He’ll have to ask Meghan for that too.”
You know what I think is funny in a sad way, the fact that people talk about Meghan being an actress on a not-the-most-popular TV show and potentially being famehungry like it’s a bad thing, yet Mike Tindall has literally been on reality shows after marrying into the BRF and gives candid interviews about other family members and no one says anything.
