Although the further details of the royal visit have yet to be officially confirmed by Kensington Palace, it will be the first time the Rugby World Cup’s honorary president has viewed a match which does not involve England at this year’s tournament.
The prince is known to be very passionate about rugby. He has made a speech at the opening ceremony before England’s triumph over Fiji. He said: “There will be moments in this World Cup which will live with us for the rest of our lives.”
“To all the players, we congratulate you and wish you well for the tournament. Your individual skill is to be celebrated, but I can think of no other sport where the success of the team is shouldered so equally by everyone.”
“Rugby has changed dramatically in my lifetime, but it remains a game founded on a code of values, values which are as important today, both on and off the field of play, as they have ever been.
“Across the country, regardless of age, background or beliefs, this nation, which gave rugby to the world in 1823, will join together and celebrate the game like never before,” he added.
Prince Harry’s schedule is expected to be confirmed in the next couple of days.
