Royals Kate Middleton and Prince William Root for Opposing Teams at Wales vs. England Rugby Match The Prince and Princess of Wales went to Principality Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday By Stephanie Petit Stephanie Petit Stephanie Petit is a Royals Editor, Writer and Reporter at PEOPLE.

The Prince and Princess of Wales headed to Principality Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday for the Wales vs. England Six Nations rugby match — but only one will go home with the royal bragging rights, as they support different teams. Prince William, 40, has been patron of the Welsh Rugby Union since 2016, while Princess Kate, 41, supports England as patron of the Rugby Football League and the Rugby Football Union.

William, meanwhile, kept warm in a simple black coat, which he accessorized with a vibrant red scarf around his neck. Underneath, the royal wore a blue suit and red tie.

Prince William has traditionally cheered for Wales in rugby but England in soccer — but after becoming the Prince of Wales upon the death of his grandmother Queen Elizabeth, he tactfully supported both teams in last year's World Cup. Chris Fairweather/Huw Evans/Shutterstock "I support both. I support England more in the football but Wales in the rugby," Prince William said when asked about his rooting interests in the global soccer tournament, which was eventually won by Argentina. "When I was growing up, Wales didn't get through to the tournaments. Getting to the World Cup is a big deal, and I'll be supporting Wales through the process." The couple's rugby rivalry is fairly new — Kate only took over as patron of the Rugby Football League and the Rugby Football Union in early 2022. The role previously belonged to Prince Harry, and the transfer to Kate marked the first of the Duke of Sussex's former patronages to be redistributed to another family member after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped back from their royal roles and relocated to California. Kate jumped into the role, joining a practice in Feb. 2022 where she was lifted into the air for a line-out play. Kate Middleton. Karwai Tang/WireImage Can't get enough of PEOPLE's Royals coverage?
