Last night, Prince Harry, Prince William and Prince Philip attended the final of the Rugby World Cup 2015, watching New Zealand retain the cup for a second time.
Seeing two generations of the Royal Family at the match was quite a treat, as it was not expected for The Duke of Edinburgh to be there. Prince Albert of Monaco also made an appearance in the Royal Box, seated next to Prince Harry.
The All Blacks won against Australia 34–17 in the match at Twickenham, meaning they have won three consecutive world cup trophies, a historic record.
As the culmination of a very successful tournament, a number of big names were also in attendance, including Kylie Minogue, Richard Branson, and David Cameron.
It was Harry’s job as Honorary President of the World Cup organising committee, to present the trophy. He handed the trophy to Richie McCaw as the players lined up on the podium, having spent the day in America on Thursday.
Fireworks were set off behind the gathering on the pitch, and the champagne was opened to celebrate. The winning side also welcomed the trophy back by doing the traditional Haka in front of it.
The tournament has estimated to have boosted Britain’s economy by an £2.5billion, as rugby fans from across the world descended to see their team compete.
