The nephew-in-law of the King When the 2022 season of I'm A Celebrity premieres, Mike Tindall will quickly face the challenges that come with being a contestant.
The spouse of Princess Beatrice has now voiced his view about Mike's participation in a social media post about it, making him the first member of the royal family to do so.
This royal news was announced as Kate Middleton modelled a flawless colour block ensemble with a classic roll-neck and Demellier purse, borrowing styling cues from Meghan Markle.
The inclusion of Mike Tindall, Zara Tindall's husband and the King's nephew-in-law, in the cast of I'm A Celebrity.. Get Me Out of Here! 2022 has finally been confirmed after weeks of rumours. The former England Rugby player will be the first royal ever to participate in the reality programme, which is returning to Australia after two years of filming in Wales. Mike Tindall has already stated that he may "regret" his time spent in the jungle, despite his belief that it will be "excellent fun."
It is believed that the Royal Family has been "tight-lipped" regarding Mike's most recent endeavour in the days since the announcement, with neither King Charles nor the palace issuing an official statement. One royal has responded to Mike Tindall's appearance on I'm A Celebrity, and it appears they would welcome watching the rugby player participate in some Bushtucker trials!
In a move similar of fellow ITV reality programme Love Island, Mike Tindall won't have access to his phone while residing at the I'm A Celebrity camp. And given that he was prepared when he came in Australia ahead of the debut concert on November 6, it's probable that he's already delegated control of it.
In any case, Mike's Instagram page recently posted a photo of the former rugby player and podcast host grinning while sporting the standard I'm A Celeb attire, replete with wide-brimmed hat and a background of jungle leaves. A string of emojis, from a pair of eyes to a caterpillar and an ant, were used in the caption to reflect the post's content.
Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, the husband of Princess Beatrice, expressed his open response to Mike's news using an emoji with a wildlife theme.
In an apparent allusion to the infamously nauseating Bushtucker eating trials, Edoardo posted a spider, a caterpillar, and a queasy-looking emoji.
The first official royal response to Mike Tindall's I'm A Celebrity appearance has come from Edoardo, and both men are first cousins married to one of the late Queen's granddaughters. His choice to mimic Mike's usage of amusing emojis and his decision to reply at all could be taken as a sign that the husband of Princess Beatrice is supportive of his new endeavour.
Mike was recently questioned by The Sun about how Zara feels about him participating, despite the fact that she hasn't said anything herself. In response, he said, "She is fine, else I wouldn't have done it, would I?"
The royals who may watch Mike for however long he spends in the I'm A Celebrity jungle are unknown, but he will undoubtedly be thrilled to see Zara again after being unable to interact with her on the show.
"It's definitely been one of the longest stretches without any communication between us. The hardest part will undoubtedly be maintaining communication while you are away, he said.
