Normally, Mike Tindall, husband of Zara Phillips, is a jokester who always has something light-hearted to say about his royal relatives.

Royally awkward: Mike Tindall got asked about Prince Harry

On his podcast The Good, the Bad and the Rugby, Mike Tindall quickly quieted down when he was asked about the divisive prince.

The episode was actually about the upcoming Christmas with the royals and the past year.

But then Tindall's co-host James Haskell jumped in with the amusing question: "It is going to be pin the tail on Harry, like running him around and trying to...? Smash the pinata?"
