It’s Saturday, and Prince William and Kate, together with their oldest son Prince George, are attending England vs Wales rugby match.
Prince George’s attendance was such a nice surprise for royal fans as it wasn’t announced earlier. But it is unclear exactly who he is cheering for today.
His parents will be in direct competition as Prince William patron has been a patron of the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) since 2016.
Today’s match at Twickenham Stadium will mark the first Kate has attended since becoming a patron of the Rugby Football Union (RFU).
Kate was given the royal patron role of the Rugby Football Union and Rugby Football League by the Queen after it was previously held by her brother-in-law Prince Harry.
For the match, Kate has chosen to wear a very stylish check coat embellished with gold button. During the game, she was also seen donning a scarf that bore the English rose.
Upon arrival, the Cambridges met with the President of the Rugby Football Union and the President of the Welsh Rugby Union. They also chatted with representatives of the Rugby Football Union’s community game, which includes volunteers and council member.
Earlier this month, the Duchess admitted her new role would “make things interesting” with William.
“We’re terribly competitive. The fact we’re now supporting two different teams is going to make things interesting”, Kate revealed when she met England players during a training session earlier this month.
Prince William and Kate’s engagement comes shortly after they released a statement on Twitter in support of “all of Ukraine’s people.”
“In October 2020 we had the privilege to meet President Zelenskyy and the First Lady to learn of their hope and optimism for Ukraine’s future. Today we stand with the President and all of Ukraine’s people as they bravely fight for that future 🇺🇦 ,” they wrote, signing the tweet personally: “W & C.”
