Prince Harry joins fans at Twickenham Stadium for Army v Navy clash

Prince Harry joined thousands of rugby fans to watch the Army take on their Royal Navy rivals at Twickenham Stadium. He attended the rugby clash between the senior teams of the services in his role as patron of the Invictus Games Foundation, which is the official charity for this year’s game, on Saturday. After arriving at the stadium for 100th annual match, the royal was seen standing to attention singing along to the national anthem – which was played by the Royal Marines band. Harry, a former Army captain, then met the players from both teams and the referees before taking his pitch-side seat amongst competitors from the 2014 and 2016 Invictus Games, the Paralympic-style competition for wounded or sick service personnel and veterans. The military sporting clash at the stadium in south-west London is the final and deciding fixture in the Inter Services competition, which also features an RAF team. Army beat Navy 29-20 in this match.
