He became the patron of the union’s All-School Programme in 2013 before succeeding his mother, the Queen as the patron of RFU in 2017. Before then, he had worked as an Assistant Development officer of the union in 2004 when he helped to teach Rugby to young people in the country’s clubs and schools.

The visit to Lealands High School enabled the Prince to see the RFU’s All Schools Program in action, as they continue their aim to increase the number of secondary state schools playing rugby union.

MEGHAN MARKLE’S FIRST ROYAL ENGAGEMENT SINCE CHILDBIRTH

Prince Harry may have had a busy day, but his better half was also engaged in a royal engagement elsewhere. The beautiful Duchess was busy debuting her new Capsule Clothing Line.

The collection has the aim of helping unemployed women to find work because with every item bought, another one goes to the Smart Works Charity. The collection consists of five-set wardrobe essentials for working-class women.

The Duchess revealed that what inspired her to embark on the project was her visits to the Smart Works charity organization. The visits made her question herself on what she could do to help.
