Tonight William, Kate and Harry cheered on their teams at a Rugby World Cup match between Wales and England.

We returned to the site for the World Cup opening ceremony, Twickenham Stadium. Tonight's event definitely had royal rivalries at stake, with Prince Harry cheering on England and William and Kate rooting for Wales. You may recall that Prince Harry is Honorary President of England Rugby, the official hosts for the World Cup, and William is Vice-Patron of the Welsh Rugby Union.

Shortly before the match got underway Kensington Palace posted this on Twitter:



Kate seemed to enjoy herself throughout the match.

All three young royals sang God Save the Queen, more from The Daily Mail on what happened next:

It's been billed as the biggest match between the two countries in decades – and one of the many families divided by tonight's clash between England and Wales were the royals.

Joined by Kate – and dressed in an official Welsh team jacket – the Duke of Cambridge didn't hold back as he joined 30,000 visiting fans in a spine-tingling rendition of Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau.

Thus far we've not had a good look at what Kate was wearing. From what we could discern it appeared she had on Zara floral print trousers and the red scarf we first saw in Canada, and then again on Christmas 2012. (Red is the Welsh team color.)

It is widely believed to be a Hugo Boss piece, though that has never been officially confirmed.

Kate debuted a new pair of earrings, they are from a designer she has worn before, Catherine Zoraida. They are theFern Hoop earrings, in gold over silver (£150). The earrings are also offered in solid gold (£700), as well as silver (£130). Our thanks to Sophie for spotting these so quickly and posting them on the WKW Facebook wall.

Readers may recall that Kate wore the designer's jewelry for a State Dinner in Malaysia during the Jubilee Tour in 2012. The Duchess wore the Double Leaf earrings and Spread Your Wings (Scales) bracelet to that event.

The match certainly lived up to the hype, as Wales made what some are calling the most stunning comeback in World Cup History. Apparently Wales is the first northern hemisphere team to beat England. William and Kate were beaming at the final score: Wales 28 / England 25.
