Reportedly Rugby Union wants Prince William to become the new patron in time for the World Cup.

Rugby League chiefs are said to be keen for Prince William to take over his brother’s role as the royal face of the sport. It comes after Prince Harry was stripped of his royal duties when he and his wife Meghan Markle stepped away from the family to pursue a more independent life. That means the Duke of Sussex will no longer be the patron of the Rugby Football League (RFL) and Rugby Football Union (RFU). The patronages have returned to the Queen temporarily but are set to be redistributed to other working royals – and William is thought to be favourite for the role. Rugby league’s bosses are hopeful for a big name to put the sport in the limelight ahead of this autumn’s World Cup, which is being hosted by the north of England from October. The Telegraph reports that the RFL is hoping that William will be given the role. A source close to senior figures at the RFL told the paper: ‘The World Cup is going to take place in the north of England, which is very significant at this time and very important for the royal household to acknowledge and get behind, particularly as it will be happening in many towns where major events are not usually held, such as St Helens, Doncaster and Hull. ‘The Duke of Sussex was a high profile figure who embraced the World Cup and we hope the next appointment will be a continuation of that.’

It's William patron of the Welsh Rugby Union (and Anne the Scottish Rugby Union)?  I mean, I get the desire to have someone with a good profile but it wouldn't totally make sense to have William for both, or even have William drop Welsh to pickup English.  How about Edward?  Granted you can't get a bigger name than The Queen...though she won't be attending anytime soon.

Interesting...I know nothing about rugby hence the questions.  Clearly Harry being patron of both and Anne/William only Union got me confused.

What's the different?  I've only every heard of rugby and really only in passing.

There are different rules, many of which around tackling.  There's differences too in where union/league are popular - in England as a very rough guide, league is more popular in the north.  Union is huge in Wales; dropping it, especially in favour of the English rugby union, would go down like a bucket of cold vomit, to be honest.

I have to say, I'd find it a little odd for William to be patron of the Welsh rugby union and the English rugby league.  Then again, it could prove a good way of supporting both, as the Welsh rugby union team and the English rugby league team are never going to leave, so it's not a bad idea after all!  Maybe William should be picking up a Scottish and a Northern Irish sport for patron duties too!

It is the Rugby League not the Rugby Union that want William. It is the Rugby League World Cup this year. Rugby Union is the larger event and was held in Japan in 2019 while League is in 2021. Australia will win the Rugby League World Cup (unless there is an upset in which case NZ or England ... no one else even plays the game at that high a level although it is the national sport in PNG).

Union is a world-wide game while League is much more limited.

The biggest difference between the two games is the number of players - League has 13 while Rugby has 15. Rugby has line-outs which League doesn't have. Mike Tindall played union not league.

William is already the patron of Welsh Rugby so he won't take on English Rugby (I can see Edward taking on that one).

The problem with a Northern Ireland sporting patronage is that outside of football (and William is already patron of the FA - or the English game while others are patrons of Scottish and Welsh football) Northern Ireland and the Republic play as one e.g. when Ireland plays Rugby it is a combined team from Republic and Northern Ireland. That is the same with cricket. Northern Ireland athletes even have the choice to compete for GB or the Republic at the Olympics.

I'm aware.  Some even represent Northern Ireland at Commonwealth Games and Republic of Ireland at Olympics.  But I'm sure there would be something, like netball.  Or associations where the players are individuals, not team members.

There's also something which I think has been talked about here before, in that RF members should perhaps be a tiny bit more circumspect when loudly cheering on the home countries whilst playing Commonwealth countries.  But that's getting OT!

Feb 22 - The Duke of Cambridge as he visited a vaccination centre at the King’s Lynn Corn Exchange in Norfolk this morning to pay tribute to the incredible efforts and dedication of the staff involved in the Covid-19 vaccine rollout.



When asked about his Grandfather Prince Philip being in the hospital, Prince William said "Yes he's ok, they're keeping an eye

The first part of that video and this video show William speaking to Arthur Edwards, the Sun's royal photographer for over 40 years. I think its so refreshing to see William be able to speak to a member of the press (if only fleetingly) so normally and easily given all we have heard about some members of the RF and the media and their relationship. William seems to recognise that if nothing else keeping the media onside is important.

I agree. Apparently there's been comments from the press/photographers that William is far more relaxed now with them. Reportedly during a flight while on their Pakistan trip,both  were taking the time to go back to the back of the plane and chat with the reporters.

Arthur has always been professional and respectable to the BRF over his career. Because of this, the family respects Arthur’s position as a photographer.

William specifically, has a very good relationship with Arthur. He will often go out of his way to make sure Arthur can get his shot before moving on.

I remember clearly, when William and Catherine debuted George outside the Lindo Wing, William pointed Arthur out to Catherine and told her to wave to him while Arthur took their picture.

Yes, William and Kate have a really good relationship with Arthur, and have made sure for each Cambridge birth that Arthur got a photo.
