Former rugby international Mike Tindall has revealed the Princess of Wales plays beer pong, during an interview where he was asked about her competitive side.

Kate Middleton appeared on the podcast The Good, The Bad, And The Rugby alongside the Prince of Wales and the Princess Royal.

The podcast is hosted by Tindall, who is married to Anne's daughter Zara.

While asking Kate where her competitive streak came from, Tindall revealed he had seen her play beer pong.

"Where did your - I'm not going to say you're uber competitive ... (but) I've seen her play beer pong," he said.

In response, Kate jokingly denied she was competitive at all.

She said her family was always "very active".

"I suppose as a family we were just very active," she said.

"And I can always remember being physical, using our bodies, whether it's walking, climbing the lake district in Scotland (or) swimming from a young age.

"(Her parents) always encouraged us to be physically active and sporty and they always encouraged us into doing team sports and trying things."

Pointing to William, she admitted they were very competitive with each other.

"I don't think we've managed to finish a game of tennis, the two of us," she said.

"It becomes a mental challenge between the two of us."

William agreed they try to "out-mental" each other.

Kate also revealed she enjoys cold water swimming.

"Cold swimming - the colder, the better," she said.

"I absolutely love it.

"Slightly to the point where William's (saying) 'you're crazy' and it's dark and it's raining.

"I will go and seek out cold water. 

"I love it."
