Mike Tindall referred to Prince Harry as a “b***end” during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, reports claim.

The former England rugby star, who is married to the Queen’s granddaughter, Zara, attended the St Paul’s Cathedral thanksgiving service on June 3 alongside top royal names.

After the service, the pair were approached by the Duke of Sussex and his wife Meghan Markle.

But according to the Express, Mike deliberately avoided speaking to the controversial royal pair and instead stared into the distance.

A source reportedly heard Tindall refer to the prince with the derogatory insult.

Body language expert Judi James told the outlet that his closeness to Prince William may have made the meeting awkward.

Prince William has had a turbulent relationship with his younger brother in the past years but has struck up a bond with his friend, Tindall.

James claimed: “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 he talks to Viscount Lindley, who turns his own back on Harry, cutting the two men off from Zara’s conversation with Harry.”

It isn’t the first time Tindall has allegedly expressed his annoyance with the Duke – during A Question of Sport Live at the London Palladium, he joked the royal family would like to “throw a few punches” in his direction.

But the former rugby player did enjoy the open-air concert, where he saw huge acts such as Elton John and Duran Duran.

He told the “The Good, The Bad, and The Rugby” podcast: “It was at the concert where there was a bit more of a chat together because we went in and had a drink with everyone after.

“I think the committee that put it together did an incredible job.”

The Daily Star has reached out to Mike Tindall's representatives for a comment.
