As one of the hardest working royals, Princess Anne instantly commands respect. Despite being at an age where most people are putting their feet up for well-deserved rest, she still regularly carries out more than 500 engagements each year with little fuss or fanfare.The Princess Royal recently joined her son-in-law, Mike Tindall, and the Prince and Princess of Wales on Mike's podcast, The Good, the Bad and the Rugby, in a special episode ahead of the Rugby World Cup.
Given that she is both beloved and feared in equal measure for her no-nonsense approach to public duties, the Princess showcased her excellent sense of humour as she laughed along with the younger royals and offered a unique insight into life behind palace walls.
Listeners of the podcast laughed along as Princess Anne revealed she would race William when he was a boy at Balmoral and joked that she was good at taking "corners" while running but that was all.
But William joked back to his aunt as he said: "You were quite quick.The look that you had on your face was quite terrifying." As well as offering funny jokes throughout and being delighted by Mike's comment about driving skills, Princess Anne commented on the competitive spirit she has seen between Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.Read more on ok.co.uk
