Gearing up for an epic rivalry, Prince William and Kate Middleton attended the Autumn International rugby match between Wales and New Zealand at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales on Saturday (November 24).

Prior to taking in the game, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge greeted injured former players who are beneficiaries of the Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust.

While greeting the players, the Duchess looked elegant in a long red LK Bennet overcoat while her Prince wore a dark suit and red tie to coordinate with his bride.

After agreeing to support the Trust, which helps assist severely injured rugby players, a representative from the organization expressed his gratitude to the royals. Edward Jones, WRCT secretary said, "We are delighted that HRH the Duke of Cambridge has agreed to be patron of the trust and, in so doing, support the work of providing and caring for those who have suffered serious injury on the rugby field in Wales.”

Injured player Paul Davies was pleased with the visit and said, "I got the impression that both William and Kate were here for the trust, not just the match. It was a real pleasure for us to talk with them, and I think they felt it was a pleasure for them to talk with us too.”
