CONFIDENTIAL EDEN: Royal family wants to slap Prince Harry, Mike Tindall jokes

Prince William was visibly angry when he was forced to publicly deny the royal family was racist after Harry and Meghan’s claims in their interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Now Mike Tindall has completely let the Windsors’ wrath slip away. Former rugby star Tindall, husband of Harry’s cousin Zara, joked that the royals would like to slap the prince a few times after his recent behaviour.

He made the comments Monday during A Question Of Sport Live at the London Palladium, joining former England teammate Matt Dawson.

Dawson recalled a drunken night out celebrating the 2003 England Rugby World Cup victory in a Sydney bar where Harry, who had traveled Down Under, had joined them.

Three sheets to the wind, Tindall and teammate Iain Balshaw thought it would be funny to give the prince a few punches, to see how long it would take his guards to pin them to the ground (a few seconds, it turned out). ).

“In Balmoral, the family is having the same conversation now,” Tindall said, adding, “Except the Queen has taken off his security.” Harry complained to Oprah about the removal of his royal patronage.

Tindall has never mentioned his Sydney ‘attack’ on Harry before. He may have alluded to it in a podcast with English star James Haskell last year. About how he could be portrayed in Netflix drama The Crown, Tindall said: “That has to be the main incident, if it was there – the full Harry blow.”

Haskell replied, “They don’t even know that. You’ve revealed that now.’

African pygmy hedgehogs are a popular pet, although the RSPCA advises against keeping them at home as their needs cannot be met in captivity. MPs recently warned that thieves are stealing them from gardens to sell for up to £300 each.

George Osborne’s money making skills seem to have left his fellow ex-chancellors green with envy.

‘I don’t like oils and butters and sauces. I’m probably the worst nightmare for most restaurants, but you guys are always so accommodating and cook the food just the way I want it: very simple, very clean, incredibly fresh. I like some steamed vegetables on the side, some balsamic vinegar, and then season it myself.’

The mum of four, 47, adds: ‘When I was in the Spice Girls, I very quickly came to the conclusion that unless I adapted to a very healthy way of eating, I would just sit there and eat the whole bread basket. would eat. From that moment on I just decided to eat cleanly.’

Carrie Johnson’s friendship with Lulu Lytle caused a scandal after she let her boyfriend decorate the prime minister’s Downing Street flat.

But there is another interior designer with whom Carrie is even closer. She’s Anna Eleri Hart and Carrie even helped choose her wedding dress. “Carrie is a friend from college,” says Anna, who married tour promoter Tim Boardman last weekend in Hertfordshire.

The dress was from one of Carrie’s favorite labels, O Pioneers. Co-founder Tania Hindmarch tells me, “We were delighted, if apprehensive, because we had never made a wedding dress before.” Maybe Anna can give Carrie a discount the next time she wants to redecorate Downing Street. . .
