The Princess of Wales, patron of England Rugby organisations since February 2022, was expected to attend England's Rugby World Cup semi-final match against South Africa on Saturday. She has already attended two matches at the tournament, a group stage match in September and England's quarter-final victory against Fiji last weekend.

Where is Princess of Wales now?

But it was quite shocking to learn that Kate did not attend the semi final. Her children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, are on school break and she is spending time off with them.

Kate is a patron of the Rugby Football Union and Rugby Football League, and she is known to be a big fan of the sport. She has revealed that she regularly plays rugby with her children in their back garden, and that Princess Charlotte plays rugby and soccer at school.

Perhaps the royal family will be playing some Rugby during their vacation this week. We can only hope to see some photos of Kate and her children enjoying the sport together.

Tom Cody delivers Kate's message

England's coach Tom Cody shared that Middleton said the royal family has watched every match intently. “She was saying how her children were totally captured by the whole program. It was brilliant telly because the game went right down to the wire", the coach said.

Unfortunately, England lost against South Africa with a 16-15 score. A knock on ends the game, and sends South Africa to the final.
