Prince Harry was spotted watching the first autumn rugby match of the QBE International games in London.
According to E! Online, the prince cheered on England in Twickenham Stadium dressed in a smart navy suit and red tie.
The Daily Mail reports that the 29-year-old royal appeared upset at first when the English team was struggling to beat their Australian rivals. Once the team turned things around in the second half, Harry smiled as he cheered them on.
Harry is a familiar face at England’s rugby games. In the past, the royal has attended the games with his brother, Prince William.
Before the game, Harry even sent well-wishes to the team via a video message. “Make sure you win every single one of them. You’re going to have all the support here. You’re going to have 80,000 people in this fantastic stadium so yeah, best of luck, make the most of it,” he said. “Everyone is behind you and hopefully, the stadium will be filled with white shirts. Let’s bring it home. Let’s make it happen!”
The young prince also supports the Rugby Football Union, which helps bring the sport to state schools.
