Mike Tindall worried he would ‘rip his trousers’ in front of the King during dance

Mike Tindall was worried he might perform a ‘sl*t drop’ and ‘rip his trousers’ while dancing at the Coronation Concert.

The 44-year-old Royal, speaking on his podcast The Good, The Bad & The Rugby, described the weekend that saw King Charles officially crowned as “strange but amazing”.

The ex-England rugby star, who is married to Princess Anne ’s daughter Zara Tindall, also discussed how he was fearful he might get carried away while dancing at the musical extravaganza at Windsor Castle the day after the historic Coronation ceremony.

He added the “worst thing” was being unsure about the etiquette of getting up and dancing before the King had decided to do so.

Recalling the event to co-hosts James Haskell and Alex Payne, he said: “You can't not hear Lionel Richie sing All Night Long and get up and dance.

“The worst thing was I was like, yeah get up and dance to this but, is the King going to stand up?”

He went on to say that he was not sure if he should remain seated and just wave his flag instead.

He added: “I did think at one point, 'I really want to dance right now' and if I get up, get into a slut drop, rip my trousers? We knew Kermit was coming at some point, could I dance with Kermit the Frog?

“I enjoyed myself.”

Mike went on to say the Coronation weekend was “incredible”.

He added: “The King was on point to a T, you could see how much he was concentrating on the emotion that was going into everything. It's not easy, a lot of those things are probably a lot heavier than you think. I think it was quite physically demanding.”

He added: “It was a strange but amazing weekend.”

The King and Queen Camilla were officially crowned at Westminster Abbey on Saturday 6 May – with thousands of well-wishes lining the streets of London to view the spectacle, and millions more watching on from home.

The following day, pop stars including Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Take That entertained a crowd of 20,000 spectators in a special concert at Windsor Castle. Muppets favourites Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy also made an appearance at the star-studded concert.

The concert was beamed onto large screens across the country and saw Prince William make a speech honouring his father the King before the performances began.

While the show was on, 10 towns and cities across the country were treated to “spectacular” light displays, while 1,000 drones took to the sky for a UK-first “multi-location drone show”.

The audience heard from King Charles at the beginning of the show, but in an unexpected way – mixed into Pete Tong Ibiza Classics.

Speaking backstage ahead of the event, Tong said: “He wanted Ibiza classics, that was very specific.”

Take That took to the stage for the finale with Greatest Day, Shine and Never Forget, which featured an intro from The Choristers of St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
