The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the Six Nations Rugby match between England and Wales at the Twickenham stadium. The Royal couple had been scheduled to attend today’s match since earlier this week but the weekend surprise was the presence of little Prince George who is not little anymore.
The Duke of Cambridge is the patron of Welsh Rugby since December 2016 while the Duchess of Cambridge became the patron earlier this month. Since Catherine became the patron today’s match became the highly anticipated one as the royal couple has always loved to go head-on against each other in various sports activities during engagements.
Wearing a red Ralph Lauren puffer jacket, Prince George accompanied his parents who are the patrons of two different rugby unions. It was jokingly asked many times by the royal fans what jersey kids will be wearing. Both William and George has to face disappointment today as England won the match.
