The Duke and Duchess met beneficiaries of the Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust (WRCT), which supports injured players; William was Vice Patron of the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) and became Patron of the Trust in June. One of them was Paul Davies, a former Welsh player and beneficiary of the Trust, who said: “I got the impression that both William and Kate were here for the trust, not just the match. It was a real pleasure for us to talk with them, and I think they felt it was a pleasure for them to talk with us too.” The Trust’s secretary, Edward Jones, said the visit was “a source of encouragement and inspiration to all those connected with the Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust, both players and trustees alike. We are delighted that HRH the Duke of Cambridge has agreed to be patron of the trust and, in so doing, support the work of providing and caring for those who have suffered serious injury on the rugby field in Wales.”
