Harry a dilemma for Mike Tindall as ex-rugby star close to William – expert

Prince Harry created a "bit of a dilemma" for Mike Tindall given the ex-rugby star's close relationship with his brother Prince William, according to a body language expert.

Mike and wife Zara Tindall, the Queen's granddaughter, were spotted standing with Meghan Markle, Harry and other royals at the service of thanksgiving during the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations earlier this month.

Footage from the event at St Paul's Cathedral appeared to show Mike avoiding speaking to the Sussexes, instead staring off into the distance with a "look of awkwardness".

However, Zara seemed to be more than happy chatting to her cousin Harry.

Body language expert Judi James reckons this was due to Mike's loyalty to William, reports the Express.

Judi told the Express: "With Mike’s closeness to William in mind it also appeared to have created a bit of a dilemma as Harry stepped out into Zara’s group as they waited for their transport.

"Zara looks happy to chat and even turns fully to talk to Harry here, who is looking anxious and keen to get into his own car.

"Mike though remains facing forward, looking about and holding his order of service up with a look of awkwardness."

In the end Mike spoke to Viscount Lindley, who turned his own back on Harry thus cutting the two men off from Zara’s conversation with the Duke of Sussex.

Judi added: "This doesn’t appear to be Mike’s normal style of behaviour as he usually looks too easy-going and too tough to get involved in politics and it could be that his attention was taken arranging the right cars, but there are no signs of any farewell from him, either."

This comes after it was reported that former England rugby star Mike referred to Harry as a "b***end" during the Jubilee celebrations, with a source allegedly overhearing the comment.
