In the Press: Shooting Jacket on Prince Harry at Twickenham

Watching the coverage of the England vs France Six Nations rugby game at Twickenham we were very pleased to see Prince Harry wearing our GWCT Jacket.  Here is some of the subsequent press coverage:

Prince Harry and Zara Phillips sing the national anthem as they stand in the crowd before a Six Nations rugby union match between England and France at Twickenham Stadium in west London 26 February 2011.

From the Express:

‘IT’S a sight that would surely make their grandmother proud. Sitting side-by-side in matching red-and-white flat caps, Prince Harry and Zara Phillips were flying the flag yesterday as they made a patriotic appearance at Twickenham.The royal cousins turned up at the shrine of rugby to watch Zara’s fiancé Mike Tindall captain England in the Six Nations match against France.

Blending into crowds waving St George’s flags, they belted out the National Anthem while respectfully removing their caps in deference to “Granny”, as they affectionately refer to the Queen.Rugby-mad Harry, 26, was in his element as he appeared pitch-side at half time to promote a charity run.The third in line to the throne chatted with runners taking part in the “Rampant Run”, a 200-mile group relay from Devon to Twickenham, before posing for a group photograph.’

From the Daily Mail:

‘They are very rarely seen out together, with one preferring the night life over the other’s quite country life.  But today, Royal cousins Prince Harry and Zara Phillips got together for a day out at the rugby as they watched England take on France in the Six Nations.

And while both are big rugby fans anyway, they were also there to cheer on England captain Mike Tindall, who Zara is set to marry this summer.

The pair joined the thousands of fans at the Twickenham stadium in south west London this afternoon to watch the eagerly-anticipated game.  And showing no airs and graces, they blended in with the crowd, chatting to match-goers around them.

They even got into the full spirit of the afternoon by donning white flat caps with the St George’s Cross on the top – although at one point it seemed Zara took some persuading to keep hers on.  There would have been plenty of celebrating going on this evening after England beat France 17-9.

Zara, 29, announced her engagement to Tindall, 32, at the end of last month, two months after Prince William, 28, announced his engagement to Kate Middleton, 29.  Zara and Tindall were introduced to each other by her cousin Harry at a bar in Sydney, Australia in 2002.

Last year, the couple bought a £800,000 house together in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, which is where Tindall proposed.  And unlike William and Kate’s arranged photo call in front of the world’s media after announcing their engagement, Zara and Tindall’s was typically understated.

Posing together in casual attire outside their house in deep snow, she said: ‘I was really shocked when Mike proposed but I am very happy.’  Tindall added: ‘I am delighted that Zara has agreed to marry me. We are both very excited about the next stage in our lives together.’’
