What? No more government shutdown? OK, then, moving on: Check out these six photos of Prince Harry playing football with schoolchildren in London!
The 29-year-old royal coached students from across England in rugby on Thursday at Twickenham Stadium, where he was joined by Rugby World Cup winner Jason Robinson.
The event marked Prince Harry’s first visit in his new role as patron of All Schools, a Rugby Football Union program designed to help more British schools teach rugby to their students.
“It was fantastic to see Prince Harry getting stuck into the action on the pitch with the students and chatting to pupils as they designed their shirts,” Rugby Football Union Chief Executive Ian Ritchie said in a statement. “You can see that his love for the game shined through, which clearly rubbed off on the players.”
A serious rugby fan, Prince Harry also serves as vice patron of the Rugby Football Union and patron of the Rugby Football Union’s Injured Players Foundation.
