Mike Tindall called out and used a derogatory phrase to describe Prince Harry following the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Party on June 4.

The remark was reportedly made to a fellow guest at a reception following the Platinum Party at Buckingham Palace. Mike, married to Queen Elizabeth's granddaughter, Zara Tindall, was said to be sitting just behind Kate Middleton and Prince Louis.

Mike claimed that the open-air concert featuring performances by Duran Duran, Diversity and Elton John, permitted the royals to "chat" and enjoy a drink together after the show. He told the "The Good, The Bad, and The Rugby" podcast, "It was at the concert where there was a bit more of a chat together because we went in and had a drink with everyone after. I think the committee that put it together did an incredible job."

Following the concert, Mike reportedly spoke to a fellow guest and referred to Harry's behavior as that of a "b*****d."

Harry had returned to the United Kingdom for the Platinum Jubilee celebrations along with his wife, Meghan Markle, and the couple's two children, Archie and Lilibet. The couple made a limited public appearance during the celebration. They attended the service of thanksgiving held at St Paul's Cathedral on June 3, and then they kept a low profile from the public and the media throughout the celebrations.

As the royal members exited the cathedral after that service, Zara stood near the exit with her husband to greet those leaving the building. In the television footage, it shows them being approached by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who chatted with the Queen's granddaughter. However, her husband appears to avoid making contact with Harry and Meghan throughout the conversation.

Body language expert Judi James believed that Mike's loyalties to Prince William "created a dilemma." "With Mike's closeness to William in mind it also appeared to have created a bit of a dilemma as Harry stepped out into Zara's group as they waited for their transport," Judi explained to the Express.

"Zara looks happy to chat and even turns fully to talk to Harry here, who is looking anxious and keen to get into his own car. Mike though remains facing forward, looking about and holding his order of service up with a look of awkwardness."

"This doesn't appear to be Mike's normal style of behavior as he usually looks too easy-going and too tough to get involved in politics and it could be that his attention was taken arranging the right cars, but there are no signs of any farewell from him, either."

Harry's comments came as new figures reveal that the number of new HIV diagnoses among heterosexuals is higher than for gay and bisexual men in England, a trend occurring for the first time in 10 years. Kevin Winter/Getty Images
