Mike Tindall put to rest yet another misconception about marrying into the royal family. Along with not becoming instantly rich, he pointed out in his interview how difficult it was to adjust to his new persona and highly publicized life. “I don’t think you can ever sort of describe when you’re so used to being around that many people, and understanding, because of it being ingrained in you, where you fit in to then not being that person,” he stated.
After 17 years of playing professional rugby, Tindall announced that he was retiring from the sport in June 2014. Tindall found the enormous life change to be challenging. He was suddenly in the midst of an identity crisis, but his wife Zara was there to support him. “Zara would say if she was honest it was probably a year it took me to figure out what I was, who I was going to be,” he recalled. “You’ve got to then go carve where the next path is — you can never replace going to work with 35 of your best friends every day.”
Tindall’s eye-opening interview for the “Grand Slammers” documentary marks his second big TV appearance, with his first being on the reality TV show “I’m A Celebrity Now,” per BBC.
