The Duke of Sussex is to stay patron of the Rugby Football League despite agreeing to topple his royal duties and HRH title on Saturday.
He succeeded the Queen in the position in 2016 and hosted the 2021 World Cup device on Thursday at Buckingham Palace.
Prince Harry and wife Meghan are to“step encourage” as senior royalsand divide their time between the UK and Canada.
“We quit up for the continuation of the relationship between the Duke and rugby league,” said an RFL assertion.
“He has confirmed a real commitment to working with us, on the muse getting inquisitive about our community and formative years programmes and sharing his encourage for England Rugby League.”
HRH, an abbreviation of His/Her Royal Highness, is vulnerable as segment of the title of some contributors of the royal household.
As RFL patron Prince Harry presented the Project Cup to winners Warrington Wolves at Wembley in August, and has just recently launched a psychological health charter for the sport.
The 2021 World Cup would possibly maybe be the first time in the sport’s history that the males’s, females’s and wheelchair occasions will doubtless be staged concurrently.
The males’s and females’s finals will even be performed as a double header at Former Trafford, Manchester, on 27 November.
