Prince Harry Hugs & High Fives Students on Rugby Visit as Meghan Launches a Charity Fashion Line

The students of Lealands High School in Luton were visited by Prince Harry, who gave them royal hugs and encouraged them to stay active by participating in Rugby. The day marked a busy one for the Duke of Sussex, whose wife, Meghan Markle had her hands busy with the launch of a fashion line. 

Many students would love to be in the shoes of those at Lealands High School who received royal embraces from the Duke of Sussex. The Prince visited the school as part of the Rugby Football Union All Schools Program. 

The day marked a busy one for the Sussex monarchs as Meghan Markle got busy for the first time since the birth of Baby Archie with the launch of a capsule collection.

PRINCE HARRY’S WORK AS PATRON OF RUGBY FOOTBALL UNION

A tweet by the Royal family’s Twitter account explained that the Duke of Sussex has long been working with the RFU to increase active participation in the sport.

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.

The school became the 750th school to sign up to the program, and the students were excited to have the Prince present to mark the special day with them. 

Apart from watching the students showcase their skills, he spoke to them about the benefits of the program, before embarking on high-fiving and hugging the excited children. 

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.
