He's just taken over the patronage of the Rugby Football Union, so Prince Harry is naturally eager to get to know the team better.

This morning, the Prince arrived at Twickenham Stadium in London to attend an open training session where young people from RFU programmes can watch the England team prepare for their next RBS 6 Nations match.

The royal, 32, who was smartly dresses in a navy suit and blue shirt was seen smiling as he chatted to fellow spectators in the stands.

On arrival, the Prince met with young rugby players involved in England Rugby's Try for Change programme. 

The initiative aims to use the sport to improve the lives of disadvantaged people and the prince heard from people who have used rugby to turn their lives around. 

Later he will meet  representatives from RFU’s National Youth Council and Young Rugby Ambassadors (YRA) programmes, before making hi way on to the pitch to meet England players as they finish their training session. 

Harry took over from his grandmother The Queen as patron of both the Rugby Football Union and the Rugby Football League at the end of last year.

During her 90th year the monarch relinquished patronages of 20 organisations to allow younger members of the family to take over. 

'It has been a privilege and an honour to have The Queen as Patron of the RFU for over 60 years,' RFU president Peter Baines said at the time. 

'She has been a fantastic supporter of the union and we thank her for that and her contribution to the game of rugby in England.

'We welcome Prince Harry as our new Patron. He has been vice-patron for a number of years already and a regular at England Tests at Twickenham.'
