Princess of Wales shares inspiring message for major event

The Princess of Wales is a very active royal, as evidenced by her support of the Rugby Football League among other organizations.

The royal wrote the women’s team a letter of support before their second game, which was against France. She signed the letter herself, and it stated: “To the England Rugby League teams, I wanted to wish you the very best of luck with your respective World Cup tournaments.

“I was so honoured to become Patron of the RFL earlier this year, not least because I know what an important moment this is for Rugby League. The ability to take part in any World Cup tournament is incredible, but to be able to do so on your home turf, hosting teams from around the world and showcasing everything that this fantastic sport has to offer is truly special.

“I am also very proud that this will be the most inclusive Rugby League World Cup to date, with the men’s, women’s and wheelchair tournaments running alongside each other for the first time. We’re in for an amazing few weeks of rugby and I look forward to cheering you on all the way!”

Catherine went on: “I know that it has been a particularly long wait for you all but I hope that the extra year has worked in your favour and that you are now even more prepared to take on the challenges ahead. You have worked incredibly hard to get to this point and I have no doubt that your efforts will inspire the next generation of Rugby League stars onto the pitch.”

She ended the letter with: “Good luck! I know you will do us all very proud and I can’t wait to see you all in action.”

The nation is proud of the women’s rugby team after they confidently won both of their games. They defeated Fiji 84-19 last week, and they beat France 13-7 on Saturday. Next week, they are supposed to play South Africa.

Before the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand got underway last week, Catherine shared a video message with the England rugby team.

The mother-of-tweet, three’s which was posted by the official England Rugby account on Twitter, wished the Red Roses “all the very best of luck” in the competition and made a commitment to set her alarm for an early time to “cheer you on all the way.”

In February, Catherine was named the Rugby Football Union and Rugby Football League’s new patron, replacing her brother-in-law Prince Harry.

She joined Eddie Jones’s England team for a training session at Twickenham Stadium for her first appearance as their patron, donning the full uniform and working out alongside members of the men’s and women’s squads.
