Speaking previously on the House of Rugby podcast, Zara who is 20th in line to the throne revealed she couldn't share any stories about I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star James Haskell as he has his fair share of her after a few pints.

The silver medal Olympian said: "He was quite good actually, at our wedding.

"He stole the camera guys camera and did some interviewing, him in front of the camera, he wanted to make himself known, to be fair to him, it was very funny."

Discussing their wedding and Zara's family, Mike added: "He actually managed one relation and tried to kidnap another," before Zara confirmed: "Yes, he did."

Reflecting on their first meeting, Mike explained: "We first met in 2003 at the World Cup when I got dropped for the semi-finals against France.

"I was slightly annoyed with Clive so I went out for a beer with Austin who was flown in for one night," before adding that Zara's brother, Peter Phillips was out in Australia and so were several of her friends

Zara continued: "We were just there for rugby, I actually had gone to New Zealand first and came back for the semis and the final.

"My brother had been out there for about a month with about six other mates, all doing the rugby World Cup."

Recalling the terrifying injury he sustained after playing Wales in 2008, which left him with a tear in his liver and a punctured lung, Mike said: "My first memory of that was when I was going into the changing rooms and her walking in with a pint glass of white wine in her hand.

"She was like 'Are you alright?' I was like 'Oh are we jolly are we?'"

"I had to leave my pint of white wine in the changing room when I went in the ambulance with him, I probably should have taken it with me," revealed Zara.
