The Duke of Sussex to attend the England vs France Six Nations match at Twickenham



The Duke of Sussex will visit Twickenham Stadium on Sunday to watch the England vs France rugby match.

Prince Harry, who is Patron of the Rugby Football Union (RFU), will watch the match as well as meet a number of guests before the game begins.

Among those who the Duke will be introduced to will be three nominees from the Mitsubishi Motors Volunteer Recognition Programme. This scheme was designed with the RFU to provide grassroots rugby clubs, Constituent Bodies and societies with opportunities to recognise and reward volunteers who play a vital, but often unrecognised role in the game.

Prince Harry will also meet a group of children from schools taking part in the CBRE All Schools programme. This scheme aims to increase the amount of rugby in secondary state schools, ensuring more children have access to rugby and to encourage children to join their local clubs.

Prince Harry became Patron of the Rugby Football Union in 2016, taking over from his grandmother The Queen.

Her Majesty was Patron of the RFU for 64 years, having taken over from her father in 1952.
