The Duke became Vice Royal Patron of the Welsh Rugby Union in February 2007 and later became Vice Patron.

We thank Her Majesty The Queen for her support of the Welsh Rugby Union over the years.

We are delighted that The Duke of Cambridge will take over from his grandmother as Patron of the Welsh Rugby Union.

Since becoming Vice Patron in 2007, His Royal Highness has been a great ambassador, not only for the Welsh Rugby Union, but for young people and for sport generally.

He makes a great difference to everyone he meets on his regular visits to Wales and to Principality Stadium, interacting with all kinds of individuals and groups including players past and present, volunteers, apprentices, veterans and staff.
