FORMER rugby star Mike Tindall has become the first royal to advertise pizza.
Tindall, 44, uses his connections to help whip Domino’s, joking: “I have friends in high places.”
The World Cup winner – married to King Charles’ niece Zara – appears with ex-teammate James Haskell in the skit.
Tindall, father of three, is seen arriving at Haskell’s house in a helicopter carrying a stack of pizza boxes.
Haskell, 37, greets him saying, “Tinds! Which boy.
“And in a helicopter too! Someone must have owed you a very big favor!”
Tindall responds, “Standard! You know me buddy!
“Friends in high places. I always deliver for you.”
Turning to the camera, Haskell said, “Calm down! What do you need, a medal?
It’s a sweet dig at his friend who was teased over the three gongs he wore at Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral.
Tindall, who is not a member of the royal family, recently raised his eyebrows when he said he would be in I’m A Celebrity… this year.
His choice of product may come as a surprise to royal watchers given Prince Andrew’s association with Pizza Express.
When he was accused of being with Jeffrey Epstein’s sex slave Virginia Giuffre, 39, in 2001, Andrew, 62, claimed he was at his branch in Woking.
A spokesperson for Tindall, whose pizza ad is set to appear on his and Haskell’s rugby podcast, declined to comment.
