Mike Tindall reveals: Marriage to Zara is not always rosy and having children "a tremendous shock"

Mike Tindall, the husband of Queen granddaughter Zara Tindall, spoke about the mental health of men on UK TV. The ex-rugby player admitted that his marriage was not always rosy and that “having children is a huge shock”.

It’s an important occasion where Mike Tindall, 43, speaks frankly and openly about his marriage to Queen granddaughter Zara Tindall, 40, and his fatherhood. In the program “Loose Woman” on November 19, 2021, on the occasion of International Men’s Day, everything revolved around the mental health of men – a topic that is still often kept silent today. Mike wants to change that with his appearance on the British TV station ITV and, according to the Daily Mail, reveals some very private details.

Mike Tindall: “A marriage can’t be all roses”

Whether it’s about his father’s Parkinson’s disease or what the royals think of Prince Harry, 37, Zara’s husband Mike rarely ministers. But this television appearance was not about others, but about the relationship with the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth, 95, and his three children Mia, 7, Lena, 3, Lucas, 7 months.

“I look forward to being on Loose Men and talking about some of the really important issues men face.
As a rugby player from the north, I probably have a reputation for being strong and just moving on, but that doesn’t always work and we all have to talk about things, “says Mike at the beginning of the show.

In the program “Loose Woman”, which was renamed “Loose Men” for World Men’s Day, the former rugby player unpacks about his relationship and reveals: Even in the otherwise so harmonious marriage between him and his wife, things are not always so positive . “A marriage or long-term relationship cannot be all roses and rainbows.”

Mike and Zara: Are you about to renew your vows soon?

One of the reasons is the three children the couple has. Tindall says: “When you have kids, it’s a big shock, a change you’ve never seen before.” Mike also lets his fellow interviewees understand that his wife “remains angry” while he can dismiss disagreements. “The thing is: nobody is right, nobody is wrong, you have to go through it together,” he adds diplomatically.

Despite all adversities, he loves his Zara more than anything. Mike was also asked at the panel if he would renew his marriage vows with her and said, “I think I would”.

Is there another royal wedding waiting for us soon? The couple, who live at Princess Annes Gatcombe Park in Gloucestershire, were married in a simple ceremony in Scotland in 2011.
