During some of their more active outings, Prince William and Princess Catherine frequently try to out-compete one another in a friendly rivalry.
And this rivalry will resurface on Saturday when the two go to Cardiff to watch England and Wales compete in the Six Nations tournament. William will undoubtedly support the dragons as Prince of Wales and patron of the Welsh Rugby Union, but Catherine will have her allegiance firmly planted with the English roses as the patron of the Rugby Football Union.
The couple has a history of bringing their kids to games; young Prince George attended the men’s Euros in 2021 and went to an England vs. Wales game with his parents last year. But on this particular occasion, only the Prince and Princess went to the game.
The Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust has confirmed that the Prince and Princess will visit injured players while they are in the country.
The Sir Tasker Watkins Suite, a brand-new area at the Stadium reserved for use by injured players and their families prior to games, will then be formally opened.
William wore a black coat and red scarf, and Catherine looked amazing in a red and white houndstooth coat as they made sure to dress warmly for the outing. When Princess Catherine was expecting Prince Louis in 2018, she wore the outerwear item.
The soon-to-be mother of three stepped out in the pricey outfit while visiting the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm to learn about Sweden’s strategy for dealing with mental health issues. With a Chanel calfskin bag, sheer tights, and the coat, she concealed her growing baby bump.
The royals shared a team for the plaque unveiling in front of the Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust members prior to the game.
William joked with a group of injured players prior to the game that they needed a “little lift” and that things would get “tense” with his wife if England won.
The Welsh national anthem was sung by the couple during their first game as the Prince and Princess of Wales.
Although England defeated Wales by a score of 20-10, William will leave the game feeling a little let down, but Catherine will undoubtedly be smiling the entire way home.
