THE DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE WILL ATTEND THE WALES VS AUSTRALIA RUGBY MATCH
Principality Stadium, Cardiff
Saturday 11th November, 2017
The Duke of Cambridge, Patron of the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) will attend the Wales vs Australia Autumn International rugby match at Principality Stadium in Cardiff on 11th November. His Royal Highness became Patron of the WRU in 2016, taking over the Patronage from Her Majesty The Queen.
Prior to the match starting, His Royal Highness will meet representatives and beneficiaries from the Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust, which The Duke is also Patron of. The Trust was set up in 1972 as an organisation with a range of education, social and sporting objectives. The charity supports those players and their families who have been severely injured whilst playing rugby football in Wales.
During half-time, His Royal Highness will meet some of the WRU Coach Core Apprentices. The Coach Core scheme was designed by The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry to take young people aged 16-24 with limited opportunities, and train them to be sports coaches and positive role models and mentors in their communities. Coach Core has been working with the WRU since 2015 and to date has trained, educated and deployed 36 apprentices in communities across South Wales to deliver rugby in schools and towns in fun and engaging ways.
