Rivalry between William and Kate

Prince William has been the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) patron since 2016 and has often been seen watching the team play. However, since February, the Duchess of Cambridge has been the Rugby Football Union (RFU) patron.

This means there is likely a small rivalry between the couple during international games, with Prince William cheering for Wales and his wife Kate, cheering for England.

Shortly after becoming a patron for the RFU, Kate was seen getting down and dirty with the England rugby team and even jokingly told England player, Ellis Genge:

We’re terribly competitive. The fact we’re now supporting two different teams is going to make things interesting
