At the reception, she told how she, her husband Prince William and their three children had watched the final on television, in which England narrowly defeated France 28-24. She laughed as she told the England team: “You’ve set the bar high, haven’t you? Which is good.”

Asked whether her children were interested in rugby, she said: “We’re always slightly competitive with each other. They all love sports and Louis is mad about rugby. They are at an age where they just love running around.” The princess then divulged her own fitness schedule and added: “I do it all: whenever I can squeeze in exercise I do, even jumping on the trampoline with the children before school. “I’d love to come and play,” she said. “There’s no excuse now. We’re going to have to have a family training session.”
