Prince Harry Texted a Pic of Baby Archie to the England Rugby Team

When it came time to support the England rugby team, Prince Harry knew exactly what to do.

Over the weekend, the Duke of Sussex, 35, watched his country play against South Africa in the 2019 Rugby World Cup Final at the International Stadium in Yokohama, Japan.

Prior to the game, one of England’s players—Sam Underhill—sat down for a press interview and revealed that Prince Harry texted the team a few words of encouragement. Not only did the royal wish them good luck, but he also shared a photo of his son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, wearing an official England rugby shirt.

“As a group we’ve had a couple of messages,” Underhill says in the clip. “Prince Harry sent us a nice message of support, which was nice to receive. Showed his little lad in an England shirt, so that was a nice touch.”

Prince Harry watched the Rugby World Cup Final alongside Japan’s Fumihito, Crown Prince Akishino, and his wife, Kiko, Crown Princess Akishino. Although England lost with a final score of 12 to 32, Prince Harry still congratulated the players on his joint Instagram account with Meghan Markle.

“Hold your heads high boys, you did an outstanding job, and we couldn’t have asked more from you,” he wrote.

Now all we need is to get our hands on this photo of baby Archie.
