Mike Tindall wants to ask Meghan Markle for a guest role on Suits when they meet

Mike Tindall, husband of Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter Zara Tindall, daughter of Princess Anne, is hoping for a spot on a hit US television show and he knows just the connection to get him in.

The former rugby player admits he is a huge fan of Suits and wants to play a “bouncer”.

“I’m excited as I’m a massive fan of Suits, so I want to pick her brain more on that than ­anything else.

“A cameo in Suits is one thing I would ­definitely do, I could be a door bouncer or something.

“I’ll have to ask Meghan if she can get me in.” Mike Tindall told the Sun.

Meghan Markle, girlfriend of Prince Harry, is a series regular on the show which films in Toronto, Canada.

Should Mike get a spot on the show, it won’t be the first time in front of the camera. He appeared on Channel 4’s winter sports contest The Jump in 2014 where he came runner-up to Joey Essex.

Determined to do better, he went all out for Bear Grylls: Mission Survive on ITV, even drinking his own urine. Yet, despite his efforts, second place was as far as he could make it. Princess Beatrice also made an appearance on Bear Grylls’ show but didn’t have to achieve anything as disgusting as drinking her pee.

If Suits doesn’t work out, he has been offered a spot on Strickly Come Dancing.

“My wife and I have been asked a couple of times now to do Strictly.

“I’m not sure it’s our gig, but I would never say never,” Mike said while attending the Hope & Homes For Children: End The Silence, at London’s Abbey Road.

When Mike gets the chance to audition for his cameo is all up in the air as he noted: “we don’t see them that much.”
