     Wearing a warm peacoat and collared shirt with a tie, Harry, 34, enjoyed the match from the stands as England beat France, 44-8 — an exciting start to the Six Nations Championship
     Prior to the game, Harry met three nominees from the Mitsubishi Motors Volunteer Recognition Programme, which was designed with the RFU to provide grassroots rugby clubs, Constituent Bodies and societies with opportunities to recognize and reward the volunteers who make up an integral part of the game
     The 34-year-old prince also met a group of children from schools taking part in the CBRE All Schools program
    The project aims to increase the amount of rugby in secondary state schools, ensure more kids have the opportunity to play rugby and encourage new players to join local clubs
    The program provides each participating school with a specialized three-year delivery plan and package of funding, resources and support linked to a local rugby club
     Although Harry no longer plays rugby himself, that doesn't mean he doesn't miss the sport
     "I'm like a Labrador with a tennis ball. As soon as I see a rugby ball," Harry told players last February while attending a training session
     The royal was also asked about his own experience playing rugby. Harry said he'd "played for years," first as a scrum half, and then as fly half when he got too tall
    Eventually, he had to stop playing because of "numerous injuries."  Although pregnant wife Meghan Markle did not join him for the sporty day out on Sunday, she will be by his side on Tuesday to attend the gala performance of The Wider Earth in support of the Queen's Commonwealth Trust
