Published September 2023
The Prince and Princess of Wales, and The Princess Royal, have taken part in a special episode of The Good, The Bad and The Rugby podcast in their respective roles as Patrons of the Welsh Rugby Union, Rugby Football Union, and Scottish Rugby Union.
Joining the team of Alex Payne, James Haskell and Mike Tindall - husband of Zara Tindall and son-in-law of The Princess Royal - this special episode kicks off seven weeks of Rugby World Cup action, but also touches on wider topics including the Royal Family’s love of sport and how large-scale sporting events play such an important role in inspiring the next generation to play sport.
The release of this podcast came ahead of The Prince and Princess' attendance at their respective Patronages' games over the first weekend of the tournament. The Princess of Wales was in Marseille to see England triumph over Argentina, while on Sunday The Prince was in Bordeaux as Wales overcame Fiji.
