Kate Middleton will have to prove herself in a new patronage. If the Beijing 2022 Olympics are among the most anticipated sporting events in February, fans of the oval ball are not left out with the launch, on February 5, of the Six Nations Tournament. A competition that begins with the Wales-Ireland match, followed by the England-Scotland match, which will have a major supporter and above all a new godmother: Kate Middleton. Indeed, after the departure of Prince Harry, the Duchess of Cambridge inherited the patronage of the English Rugby Federation. What she intends to honor solemnly.
A few days before the start of the competition, Prince William’s wife decided to celebrate her new title with a fun video on Instagram. In this one, we see her throwing the ball to several rugby players. “I am delighted to become a patron of the Rugby Football League and the Rugby Football Union – two fantastic organizations committed to harnessing the power sport can have to bring communities together and help individuals thrive,” said she wrote in the caption of this video, in which she appears in jogging, explaining that she “can’t wait […] to encourage England in what promises to be an exciting year for both sports!” , she concluded.

Why will Kate be opposed to William?
However, if she is happy to recover this patronage, it could create some tension in her marriage with Prince William. And for good reason, he is the sponsor of Wales national rugby, the Wales rugby union team. An opposing team, which will play against England on February 26, is already promising a lively match, both at Twickenham stadium and at Cambridge, who will soon be moving from Kensington Palace to be closer to Elizabeth II in settling in Windsor.
