Prince Harry made a rare appearance. The Duke of Sussex celebrated England’s Rugby team win in 150 years. It was a sweet surprise for both the team and fans alike. He made an unexpected appearance to help support them. Harry also wanted to speak out on the importance of athletics, especially during “these isolated times.”
The 36-year-old appeared in the video posted on the England Rugby Twitter account. In the clip, he spoke ahead of England and Scotland taking part in the oldest international rivalry in their match at Twickenham. The game is the 150th anniversary of the first-ever Test, which was held on March 27, 1871, in Edinburgh.
Prince Harry surprises Rugby fans in rare video
The ginger appeared in the video in a navy blue blazer with a white button-down shirt. Prince Harry had his signature scruffy beard that he’s been rocking for years.
“Rugby union has brought joy to millions of people with teams full of great characters and special players,” Harry said. “In these isolated times, the sheer passion and enjoyment that sport offers can bring great comfort to many. As a proud patron of the Rugby Football Union, I join millions of supporters across the entire world in celebrating 150 years of England Rugby.”
The team is all.
Always has been.

Harry’s rare appearance comes after royal insiders said that he “can’t be half in, half out” of the Royal families if he wants to keep his military titles. The Duke wants to maintain the military roles he gave up when he stepped down from his senior royal position in March 2020. For nearly a decade in the Army, Harry served as an officer. But his military titles were stripped when he quit the British Royal Family with his wife Meghan Markle in January.
Unfortunately, Harry won’t get his titles back. He can’t take part in a “half in, half out” role. Either Harry would have to be all in, or no longer part of the BRF. Harry wants to hold onto his military roles of Captain-General of the Royal Marines, Honorary Air Commandant of RAF Honington and Commodore-in-Chief, Small Ships and Diving, Royal Naval Command, according to The Sun.
The Duke of Sussex continues to make appearances
Even though he’s no longer an official royal, Prince Harry is still making plenty of appearances. On Tuesday, February 2, he appeared in a video message for contestants of the Invictus Games. The Paralympics competition celebrates injured, wounded, or sick armed services personnel and veterans. During his appearance, Harry announced that the competition was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“To the key workers on the frontlines in the battle against the pandemic, we are with you,” Harry and his friends said in the video, according to People. “And when the world is ready, we will compete with all we have, with all we are.”
Harry also made a special appearance at the inauguration of President Joe Biden. Twitter noticed a photo of the prince in the background at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The photo was from his 2013 visit to the U.S., which also included a visit to the Arlington National Cemetery. Then, Harry wore his British Army uniform as he placed flowers at the memorial to President John F. Kennedy.
