As well as offering practical support, including specially adapted vehicles and wheelchairs, the trust provides pastoral care and social opportunities for the former players and their families.

Beneficiaries are also often invited to watch Wales' home rugby internationals at the Principality Stadium.

William became vice royal patron of the WRU in February 2007 at the start of that year's Six Nations championship.

His visit coincides with the match which will see the home team take on France, who have been defeated by Wales in their last four Tests.
