Discover more about Mike Tindall MBE
Renowned as one of the most consistent top-level performers of his generation, Mike Tindall rose through the rugby ranks to become one of the most successful England players of modern times. Also, a noted racehorse owner, he now brings his sizeable sporting knowledge to the table in The Green Room.
Tindall’s career began in 1997, when he joined Bath at the age of 18 - quickly establishing himself as a first-team regular at outside centre. In 2000, he earned his first national team call up, making a winning debut against Ireland at Twickenham Stadium. He went on to cement his place in the England team playing alongside fellow centre Will Greenwood, with the two of them forming a formidable duo.
That midfield partnership proved key for England during the historic 2003 Rugby World Cup triumph, where Mike featured in all but one match. It was during the Rugby World Cup (on the evening of the final in Sydney), that Tindall met his future bride Zara Phillips - the Queen’s granddaughter and a World champion in her own right in Equestrian.
Passionate about horses himself, Tindall soon bought his own steeplechaser at a charity auction event. It proved to be a sound investment, as Mike and Zara’s Midas touch saw the horse, Monbeg Dude, romp to success in the Welsh Grand National and then finish third in the Grand National.
Back on the rugby pitch, a move to Gloucester in 2005 for the man affectionately nicknamed “the fridge” brought new accolades - as Mike made over 200 appearances for the club and inspired the side to outstanding success.
It was these epic achievements for club and country, along with his overall contribution to his sport, that saw Mike awarded the MBE in 2007.
