Prince Harry cheers England’s Rugby Teams to victory

On Saturday, Prince Harry watched England’s Red Roses v Wales at the Women’s Six Nations, cheering and clapping during the whole game.

The prince was on hand as patron of England Rugby. Before the match at The Stoop, Prince Harry spoke with a few of England’s players and representatives from England Rugby,

After the Red Roses’ won 52-0 in front of a crowd of around 4000, Prince Harry congratulated the team on their win before chatting with the coaching staff of both Wales and England’s teams.

On their win, Coach Simon Middleton said: “Some of our decision-making, the outside-backs, the young ones, they just want to play, they want to pass, they want to keep the ball moving, and at times you just have to carry hard and create a platform,

“We gave up quite a bit of ball on the edges where, on another day and with a few learnings, they’ll stick, and we can recycle and go again.”

From there, Harry headed over to Twickenham for more rugby, this time watching the men of England v Wales.

Upon arrival, he met with those who are benefiting from The Rugby Charity. The Foundations helps “players who sustain a catastrophic spinal cord injury or traumatic brain injury playing the game.”

Then he took his seat to watch the next match which England once again came out victorious.

Prince William is patron of Welsh Rugby but was not on hand yesterday in support of the teams. The two brothers often use the opposing patronages as ways to taunt each other.

Later this week, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will make their first official trip to Scotland where they will be visiting Edinburgh.

On 13 February, the couple will meet members of the public, learn about the local community, and celebrate young people as 2018 marks Scottish Year of Young People.
