Prince Harry is no longer the patron of rugby.
He’ll also be stripped of all honorary military ranks.
And all because of the refusal to return to the royal family. But we are just interested in the rugby component. Prince Harry is a longtime fan of the Oval Ball. We all remember him celebrating with the England national team her historic victory in the World Cup 2003. In 2016, he officially became the chief patron of the RFU, and a year later RFL. The Prince also held a World Cup draw in Japan. But the story is over. In the rugby union of England, they were very disappointed to have lost such a powerful ally: It is unfortunate that this happened, but we wish to thank Prince Harry for his dedication to the RFU, both as patron and vice-patron. We appreciate his contribution to promoting and supporting the game. We look forward to the Duke and Duchess at «Twickenham» when it becomes possible.
