Fans Think Mike Tindall Should Be King As Queen's Grandson-In-Law Comments On Harry & Meghan's Departure

Date January 29, 2020

The Queen’s granddaughter Zara Philips and her husband Mike Tindall had an amazing start of the year. The couple traveled to Australia for the New Year’s celebration and partied with Rebel Wilson in Sydney.

According to the Mirror, the pair participated in a dance-off with Wilson and met 2020 while watching fireworks. It seems like fun times! However, when Mike Tindall and Zara Phillips returned home things weren’t as fun anymore.

Mike Tindall’s reaction to Prince Harry and Meghan’s departure

The Sussex couple shook the royal family by announcing their retirment from royal roles and now some social media users think Mike should be the King.

Brian McFadden, a former Westlife member, suggested that Tindall should now wear the crown after the Queen, as Prince Harry and Prince Andrew are not in the royal picture anymore.

He wrote:

Harry gone! Andrew gone! If this keeps going @miketindall13 could be king!! Can’t wait for the karaoke Wednesday’s in the palace!!!!

A number of royal fans actually agreed with his suggestion:

However, we all know that it’s not gonna happen. Earlier this month, Zara’s husband was asked about the Sussex couple’s decision but he refused to elaborate.

Mike said:

Let’s not talk about that.

He also added that he has no information about it and we believe him. We think that this is how Meghan’s relatives should have reacted as well.

Mike Tindall and Zara Phillips’ net worth

Mike and Zara are not senior royals and they don't even have titles. However, they have quite a fortune. Even though the couple doesn’t recive any cash from the royal family, the Tindalls can boast $20 Million net worth. But where do they get the money from?

Here’s what we know:

  • they earn over $2 million thanks to their sponsorship deals;
  • they have a ‘small fortune’ in property deals;
  • Mike plays and works as a coach at Gloucester Rugby Club;
  • Mike has his own company called Kimble Trading.

The couple’s careers in sports have been a great help for them financially, too, as they still compete sometimes. So all in all, the Tindalls are doing pretty well. So much so that they don’t need any extra help from the royal family. It looks like Meghan and Harry are now in the same position, so if Mike and Zara could thrive away from the royals, they can do it, too.
