Over the weekend in Wales, Kate Middleton and Prince William supported rival teams while watching a rugby match.
At the Principality Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday, the Prince and Princess of Wales watched the Six Nations rugby match between Wales and England while standing side by side but cheering for separate teams.
While his wife is the patron of England’s Rugby Football Union and Rugby Football League, Prince William has served as the patron of the Welsh Rugby Union since 2016. Last year, Middleton replaced her brother-in-law Prince Harry as the patron.
Middleton wore a red and white Catherine Walker houndstooth coat for the occasion, which she initially wore for a trip to Sweden in 2018, according to People. In contrast, Prince William showed his support for Wales by donning a crimson tie and scarf.
Before to the game, the royal couple visited wounded athletes who were being helped by the Welsh Charity Trust, whose patron is Prince William. The British heir to the throne made jokes during the reception about his and his wife’s rugby rivalry.
“The trip home is going to be quite stressful. My wife won’t talk to me if we win today. The evening will be stressful, “According to a BBC comment from Prince William.
When asked if she supported England, Middleton chuckled and said, “The atmosphere is usually second-to-none, so I’m looking forward to that.”
In the end, Middleton’s side defeated Prince William’s, and England defeated Wales 20-10.
The Princess of Wales mentioned their three children’s love of the sport while she was there. She claims that instead of playing tag rugby, a non-contact variation of the game, nine-year-old Prince George is learning how to tackle.
[George] has the physique because he is tall. Louis will then be arriving, though. Rugby is something Charlotte does too, she added.
Prince George attended the England vs. Wales Six Nations game at Twickenham Stadium last year with Prince William and Middleton. Wales was defeated by England 23-19.
