Prince Harry to present Challenge Cup trophy

The Rugby Football League has confirmed that HRH The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, will be the Chief Guest at the Challenge Cup Final between St Helens and Warrington Wolves.

He will also present the trophy to the winning team at the end of the game.

Prince Harry has been Patron of the Rugby Football League since December 2016, when he succeeded his grandmother Her Majesty the Queen.

Simon Johnson, Interim Chair of the RFL, said: “The Rugby League Challenge Cup Final is established as a special and historic day in the British sporting calendar.

“It was first contested in 1897, and first staged at Wembley Stadium in 1929 – and we are delighted and honoured that The Duke of Sussex will be attending in his role as Patron of the Rugby Football League.

“We hope His Royal Highness will enjoy seeing the two current best teams in front of a passionate and colourful crowd at Rugby League’s showpiece event.”
