Mike Tindall has made an amusing confession about Coronation celebrations as he defended his so-called dad dancing. The former rugby player joined the Royal Family at the Coronation Concert at Windsor Castle earlier this month where he was spotted dancing along to the likes of Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Take That. Speaking on his podcast The Good, The Bad & The Rugby Mr Tindall admitted he was “that enthusiastic” he broke his Union Jack flag.
Royal fans were pleased to see Mr Tindall embracing his dad dancing as he sat alongside the Royal Family in the royal box.
Reflecting on the celebrations, Mr Tindall said: “You can’t hear Lionel Richie sing ‘All Night Long’ and not get up and dance.
“The worst thing was, with everything else, where you’re going, ‘Yeah I’ll get up and dance to this,’ and I was like ‘Is the King not going to stand up?’ because it takes a brave man to go out there [and do that].”
The Royal Family were all seen waving Union Jack flags, including the Prince of Wales who was spotted joking around with Prince George and Princess Charlotte when he decided to wave his flag in their face.
Speaking on the podcast Mr Tindall added: “I broke my flag; I was that enthusiastic. I did think at one point, ‘I really want to dance right now, and if I get up and sort of get into a slutdrop, rip my trousers off… we knew that Kermit was coming at some point, and I was like, ‘Could I dance with Kermit the frog?’… I enjoyed myself.”
“It was phenomenal. It was an incredible weekend, and I thought the King was on point to a T and I think you could see how much he was concentrating and the emotion that was going into everything.”
Mr Tindall wasn’t the only royal enjoying himself as others got to their feet and followed suit, including his wife Zara Tindall.
The Prince and Princess of Wales, Princess Charlotte, eight and Prince George, nine were seen singing and dancing along.

The newly crowned King Charles and Queen Camilla also joined in on the action as they to waved their flags as singers and performers took to the stage.
Mike Tindall has also shared some light on the night before the Coronation ceremony at Westminster Abbey when he and Ms Tindall enjoyed a date night until 2am after joining some of the Royal Family for dinner.
Appearing on Good Morning Britain the royal said: “It was nice to have a little date night. Sometimes when you’ve got three children it’s not always the easiest to get out and just have a drink together.
“So it was quite nice to have a little bit of time where we could just go out and have drinks and have a chat.”
Following the Coronation Mr Tindall shared a series of photos and clips from over the Coronation weekend, including a photo of him wearing his wife’s hat.
Sharing the post on social media the royal said: “Amazing last 10 days, so many highs!! Time to rest now!!”
The couple’s three children, Mia, nine, Lena, four, and Lucas, two were not in attendance at the Coronation.
